This is quite an old Ralph song. It has only been released on a 7" single on a couple of occasions. Both had picture sleeves, but I can't remember if the lyrics are on either of them. I will check when I get home tomrrow.
love, john.

ENGLAND
(Ralph McTell)

What is it about you, makes me feel this way?
When I'm leaving you, when I'm coming home
I'm lost for words to say.
And I know your faults and failures,
And the troubles that you've been through.
But it's more about what happens now
and what we're coming to.

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through her city streets,
and the sun that shines on England
Well it lifts the heart in me.

What is it about you, that took men into war?
Rows and rows of crosses: Who remembers why what for?
The corners of these foreign fields,
The dust in them concealed.
Out of sight but not out of mind,
Don't you know that England feels?

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through the city streets.
The rain that falls on England
Well it washes care from me.

England, oh England
England, oh England
England, oh England

Don't make this out a battle hymn or a song of victory.
It's just a way to try to say what England means to me.
And our accents and our colours change
From the city to the farmland
From the moorland to the mountain,
From the river to the sea.

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through the city streets
The rain that falls on England
Well it washes care from me.

England, oh England (x3)

From the rolling road to the winding lane,
from the field to factory,
From summer's haze to winter's glaze,
And all the colours in between.
It's a stillness in the evening.
It's the heartbeat that I'm feeling.
Fron Cornwall to Northumberland,
from the Pennines to the sea.

And the echo from the green hills
Runs through the city streets.
The rain that falls on England
Well it washes care from me

England, oh England (x3)


love, john

The "Song For Martin" is the only one I can't get on the web page - http://www.geocities.com/songs2play/artist_ralphmctell.htm All others are ok. Sorry about mix-up with "England" and "England 1914". Why is it so difficult to get lyrics for Ralph on the web ? Or am I missing something? I'll have to get the old LP's out. Anyway I'm off the See Ralph in a few weeks at The Lowrey in Manchester.

I always thought this song could have been a big hit. Unfortunately, on Ralph's single. the production is such that the words aren't clear enough, and that kills its hit potential stone dead. I've seen a tv program where Jim Davidson - that famous folksinger - performs the the song to British servicemen somewhere overseas (The Failklands?)
