Hi. Does anyone have the words (and chords if possible) to Peter Bond's song "The lark above the vapour trail"?

Many thanks.

"The Lark Across the Vapour Trail" is on Peter Bond's album "It's All Right for Some" (LER 2108) on the bulmerised Leader label. Therefore a CD reissue is highly unlikely.

THE LARK ACROSS THE VAPOUR TRAIL
Peter Bond

I climb towards the brooding sky, escaping from the factory hum,
As snow beneath the hedge will try to cheat the watery winter sun.
Where feathered ferns of frost have sprinkled diamonds on the dale,
I saw above me fleet and frail the lark across the vapour trail.

As pedlars tramp the moody moors, the reapers used the sheave and stack,
Now men take root on factory floors, and heather hides the drovers track.
The trades have changed; the game's the same; men struggle to prevail,
And singing still over bricks and vale, the lark across the vapour trail.

The trees don't let a man forget; the grime tells tales for all to see.
The windward side shows five-day sweat; the fairer face, the two days free.
To gaze upon that freedom side, you have to face the gale,
And still above the tree she sails—the lark across the vapour trail.

The towns sink claws into the land; deep footholds in the earth they carve,
But mills and forges have to stand, for no-one's free who has to starve.
The realms of nature and of man are balanced in the scales.
I hear a cry we dare not fail: the lark across the vapour trail.

The realms of nature and of man are balanced in the scales.
I hear a cry we dare not fail: the lark across the vapour trail.
