OK I did it myself
Steeleye Span: Longbone

Steeleye Span: Longbone

[Steeleye Span]

This track is from Steeleye Span's reunion album Sails Of Silver. A live recording from the Royal Opera Theatre in Adelaide, Australia in 1982 was released on the rare Australian-only LP On Tour.

Lyrics

Em~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~G

There was a king who built a ship, And sailed away
Em~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~G ~~D
To look for gold in the hills of Scone.-- Far away
G~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~C ~~~~Am~~~~~~~ G
The only gold in the hills of Scone Is gold you'll never own

D
It belongs to the giant Longbone . Far away
Chorus

G~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~C~~~~~ G~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ C
The only gold I've ever known -----It all belonged to the giant Longbone
G~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Am
The only gold I've ever known belonged to the giant Longbone
 

His teeth are sharp, his claws are long-- So they say
His eyes are like a fire that burns--Far away
We will go to the hills of Scone We'll find the giant Longbone
We'll turn him into stone---Far away

Chorus

Em~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ G

Through the rain and through the snow ---We sailed away

Em~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~G D
To the land where only fools go---Far away

G~~~~~~~~~~~~~~D
We stepped onto the shore

Em
And then we heard him roar He must have seen us

Em~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~G

We tried to hide, we tried to run---Run away

Em~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~G~~~~~~D
He killed the crew, he threw the boat---Far away

G~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~D
And the he said ``We are alone

Em~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~D
I am the giant Longbone---You should have stayed at home--Far away''

Chorus
