I love the singing of Anne Briggs. Among many traditional songs on her CDs there is this song from her, written 'Because I wasn't seeing enough of someone' (Good reason, I'd say). This is my transcription of what she's singing.

Wolfgang

GO YOUR WAY
(Anne Briggs)

Drawing water from the well
and spilling over on the grass,
walking home my heart is filled with pain.
You go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love.

And as I wander through the trees
I'm picking up the windy leaves,
I wonder where you may be sleeping now.
You go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love.

And may the west wind speed your travels
and the sun be on your hair
and make believe I'm with you
all over there, my love,
you go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love.

Friends and strangers bring stories
when asked where you might be.
Magic stories they have brought to me.
You go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love.

And as I sat mending clothes
that you will never ever wear,
looking daily for you I do prepare.
You go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love,
you go your way, my love.

Rep. verse 1

Over the Christmas period, someone asked me "Whatever happened to Anne Briggs?". For shame, I couldn't remember. I know there was a CD reissue of her singing lately - is she living in the Hebrides or thereabouits and not performing nowadays?

Regards

One of her CD inlay blurbs suggests she retired to the far north of Scotland. See http://www.sarcon.demon.co.uk/engfolk/a_briggs.htm for a discography.

Yes, from a recent CD: "now lives on an island off the Scottish coast" (written 1998). Wolfgang

Can anyone give me the tab for this?
I see that there was a further reference to it in a later thread, but the link (ex Pene) doesn't work.
Cheers
Hess
