It keeps me off the streets, Sandra. Thanks for posting the Wakefield songs - excellent. it looks like it is up to us. I am puzzled by the absence of our thread moderator who listed songs in Joe's original thread, but has posted none.

Anyhow, this lovely song is one of my wife's favourites.

(Steve Groves & Danny Bourke)

I know a woman who says she's old
She weaves a spell around my rented house of stone
It's late when we leave at the foot of the stairs
The gas pipes ring as she laughs and sings of her dancing years

And she tells me we should go home down Brunswick Road
Where we would walk and we would talk till the moon went down
We were arm in arm, as in days of old
We thought the street was lined with gold down Brunswick Road

We live in the heart of the town she loves
She doesn't mind I can't recall her yesterdays.
Outside the hall, the iron lace
Her dancing's over now the pain is on her face

She laughs again, she sees her man
He's singing Daisy on a bike out in the rain
He fades from sight, he's out of view
and if I had the chance I'd bring him back to you


As sung by Graham Dodsworth:

Brunswick Road
