Subject: Lyr Req: A Man of Convictions

Hi all,

I have just found some lyrics in an old notebook with the title "A Man of Convictions" (not to be confused with the title "A Man of Conviction" by Brandon Rhyder). I can't remember where I heard it nor do I know who wrote it ... any information would be welcome (can't find anything about it on Mudcat).

If anyone has the correct lyrics I would be most grateful.

I believe the first verse starts ...

I was first led astray when I sat in the inn and these folksingers started to carol,
They sang out of tune of cider and gin and the joys to be found in the barrel.

And the chorus goes ...

I'm a man of convictions, I'm righting all wrongs
And no contradictions will make me less strong.
Despite your restrictions I will sing my song,
And some day I'm going to be free!

If anyone can help with the tune (which I think is quite a well known one?) that would be great. Chords?

Thanks in advance.

It is a song by Chris Sugden (Sid Kipper) from a CD of the same title he made with Dave Burland.

I have the book but it does not have the chords in it. It does have the tune and I could send you a copy with the tune as a PDF or Noteworthy file via e-mail.

Steve, thanks for that info. Typical Chris Sugden humour! And so clever with words!

Vectis, it would be great if you could send email . . . but how does the process work? I'm not a member at the moment but that is easily remedied! Please advise.

Thank you both for your replies . . . big hug!
