Subject: Lyr Req: Chris Wood, 'The enclosures came'
From: GUEST,Joe

I just heard Chris Wood and Andy Cutting doing their thing at a festival. One song which was particularly moving was about the enclosures. I'd love to know what it was. I vaguely remember something about animals squeezing through hedges and the following line:

E G   G    , E G G    , G G E D C C
While ____, and ____, and ____ remain

Another line ends:

... the enclosures came

That's all I can remember. Can anyone help me identify the song? Google isn't being very helpful. Then again I'm not either, I can't remember much at all about the song.

Thanks!

Joe

I heard him doing this at St Chartier festival. He said it was a poem by John Clare if that helps at all.

Bonsoir Vivienne,

That is also where I heard him. I hope that's not the only time he sang it!

Sounds like Mad John recorded on Trespasser, a solo album from a few years ago about "enclosure" in one form or another.

John Clare was also the subject of a wonderful play called - The Fool, written Edward Bond.

Clare spent many years in a lunatic asylum because he was seen by the powers that be as being Mad and against the Rule of Law, particularly about The Enclose Acts.

The play is very very powerful.

From looking around trying to find the song I'm aware that the album "Trespasser" is about enclosures. It's highly likely that the song's on it. However I'm afraid the song I'm after wasn't Mad John.

I suppose I could buy the CD and just find out, but I'd rather know first.

Chris Wood also recorded a CD with Hugh Lupton about John Clare called The Common Ground. Maybe what you are looking for is on that.

Well, I emailed him. Bad news I'm afraid.

Sorry Jo but we haven't recorded that one yet. The lyric is from the poem by
John Clare called, The Moors.
Cheers,
Chris

Needless to say, I replied with an encouragement to record it!

Don't forget that the ex-folk singer George Deacon is a John Clare expert and his book is worth looking for.

It is a pity George has given up singing - he is too busy sailing!!

Ah yes, George Deacon & Marion Ross with her galloping harmonium. It is a shame they're not performing.
