Subject: Lyr Add: BANKS OF SWEET ITALY (Robin Williamson)
From: GUEST,old hippie
Date: 23 Nov 10 - 06:13 PM

just a beautiful song....
...............................
And must you go, my flower, my gem,
My laughter and my hope of joy,
To follow fortune through all the world?
May luck pursue you, my darling boy.

The sun shines bright in France.
Yellow it shines on high Barbary.
O be my light of day.
Tarry not long on the banks of sweet Italy.

A golden ring is a precious thing,
Red stockings and shoes o' green,
A dwelling place with painted door,
A wide white bed to love you in.

Summer's gone with calm days.
Ungentle now is Biscay Bay.
A cold fear claims my heart.
God save all sailors from the cruel waves.

I wonder whether RW had 'The Demon Lover' in his head when he came up with the song title?

This song has some present relevance.
Nobody wants to send troops to Libya, the "high Barbaree" alluded to.
So on the way back "tarry not long on the banks of sweet Italy".
