Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: The Lag's Song (Ewan MacColl)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Lag's Song by Ewan Macoll
I sing a first verse which goes:

When I was a young man I often would wonder,
What happened to time when it passed.
Then I found out that time just ends in prison,
And there it gets held fast.

I learnt it from Ewan at one of the sessions he used to hold at his house in Beckenham many years ago, so I think it's correct (subject to memory and the "folk process").
