DigiTrad:
AS I ROVED OUT (2)
BAD NEW IS ALL THE WIND CAN CARRY
CRAZY MAN MICHAEL
DIMMING OF THE DAY
DOWN WHERE THE DRUNKARDS ROLL
DRAGGING THE RIVER
FAREWELL FAREWELL
GENESIS HALL
GREAT VALERIO
KILLING JAR
LOCH LOMOND 2
MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN
NOW BE THANKFUL
POOR WILL AND THE JOLLY HANGMAN
RAINBOW OVER THE HILL
SICKNESS AND DISEASES
SLOTH
THE DIMMING OF THE DAY (2)
THE OLD CHANGING WAY
TIME TO RING SOME CHANGES
TUIRSE MO CHROI
WALL OF DEATH
WHEN I'M PRIME MINISTER

Subject: Richard Thompson's song Withered and Died
From: Captain Swing
Date: 17 Jun 99 - 04:03 PM

I am trying to find the lyrics to a song by Richard Thompson. It's probably called 'Withered and Died'. The first words are 'This cruel country has driven me down, teased me and lied, teased me and lied.'

Can anyone help please?

This cruel country has driven me down
Teased me and lied
Teased me and lied
I've only sad stories to tell to this town
My dreams have withered and died

Once I was bending the tops of the trees
Kind words in my ear
Kind faces to see

Then I took up with a boy from the West
Played run and hide
Played run and hide
Count one to ten and he's gone with the rest
My dreams have withered and died

Silver moon sail on and silver moon shine
On the waters so wide waters so wide
Steal from the bed of some good friend of mine
My dreams are withered and died

If I was a butterfly live for a day
I could be free
Just blowing away

(Rpt verse 1)

If asked, do you now have to say you learnt it 'parrot fashion'?

You know I've always wondered if Richard Thompson, one of my favorite songwriters, gets feelings like this out of his system by writing them down. If so, it's a good thing he's not keeping them in. And what beautiful songs.

It's on the Richard & Linda Thompson album *I wanna see the Bight Lights Tonight.* Same one that's got *Down where the Drunkards roll.* Need I say what I think of Richard for dumping his pregnant wife while they were on tour??
