AS I ROVED OUT (2)
BAD NEW IS ALL THE WIND CAN CARRY
CRAZY MAN MICHAEL
DIMMING OF THE DAY
DOWN WHERE THE DRUNKARDS ROLL
DRAGGING THE RIVER
FAREWELL FAREWELL
GENESIS HALL
GREAT VALERIO
KILLING JAR
LOCH LOMOND 2
MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN
NOW BE THANKFUL
POOR WILL AND THE JOLLY HANGMAN
RAINBOW OVER THE HILL
SICKNESS AND DISEASES
SLOTH
THE DIMMING OF THE DAY (2)
THE OLD CHANGING WAY
TIME TO RING SOME CHANGES
TUIRSE MO CHROI
WALL OF DEATH
WHEN I'M PRIME MINISTER

Art's question about June Tabor in the 20th century thread got me to put on her "Against the Stream" CD (1994).

PAVANNE (Richard Thompson, Island Music)

Richard Thompson (Island Music)

Pavanne, cold steel woman Pavanne
How do you love a woman
With eyes cold as the barrel of her gun
Who's never missed her mark on anyone
Pavanne, Pavanne, Pavanne

Casino doors swing open
The men raise their eyes
They way who is this beauty
As elegant as ice

And later there's an accident, another charge d'affaires
Is lying in a pool of blood, no witness anywhere
And they she was a hundred miles away
The hotel porter saw her climb the stairs
And the maid with trembling hands knows what to say
When the judge says "Are you sure,"
"I'm sure she swears

Pavanne, cold steel woman, Pavanne
How do you love a woman
With eyes cold as the barrel of her gun
Who's never missed her mark on anyone
Pavanne, Pavanne, Pavanne

At the presidential palace
A thousand people saw
His excellency leave his car
And never make the oor
The blood flows from his fingers
As he clutches at the stain
He staggers like a drunk man
Lies twisted in the rain
And they say she grew up
Well provided for
Her mother used to keep her boys for sure
And father's close attentions led to talk
She learned to stab her food
With a silver fork

And they say she didn't do it for the money
And they say she didn't do it for a man
They say she did it for the pleasure
The pleasure of the moment

Pavanne, cold steel woman, Pavanne
How do you love a woman
When everyone is moving in a trance
Like prisoners of some slow and courtly dance
Pavanne, Pavanne, Pavanne
