George

Here you go freshly transcribed from the "Where Ravens Feed" (Songs of Graeme Miles) CD by Martyn Wyndham Read. Great CD and great songs.

The Wealden Men (Graeme Miles)

You cricketing men both young and old
Whether you bat or whether you bowl
Ponder a while on all you owe
To the Wealden men of long ago

When Cromwell in those troubled times
Said bat and ball were aid to crime
Let them be burnt was the command
And the Wealden men were cursed and damned

On shaven turf all swept and rolled
We score our runs and neatly bowl
But on flinty chalk and stubbled clay
Those Wealden men first learned to play

We well applaud those mighty hits
That clear the boundary rope for six
Likewise for the catch we loudly cheer
As those Wealden men did of yesteryear

Aye we loudly clap when the fifty's scored
And when a hundred shows on the board
We give a shout and clap again
With a silent toast of those Wealden men

You cricketing men both young and old
Whether you bat or whether you bowl
Ponder a while on all you owe
To those Wealden men of long ago

Chris
