Robbie's voice is very clear in the recording. This is on the tape that is different than the lyrics Frank posted earlier:

verse 1
... a vision, I sailed out...
And I quickly came to anchor at my home in Spancilhill.

verse 5
And when the sermon ended, we all knelt down in prayer,
.... Golden Stairs.

verse 6
...the stout and the bold came there to sport and kill,

verse 7
And I only met strange faces at my home in Spancilhill.

verse 8
I called to see the neighbors...

Sure he used to mend my breeches...

verse 10
The cock flew on the roost...
And I woke...

verse 11
In hopes to see that dear old spot...
May the Almighty King of angels..

(Joe, I'd retype the whole song for you, but don't have time this afternoon - going offline now - Alice)
