Can any one help me with the lyrics to this song, please. I believe it may be a Ralph Mctell song. Ta. Matt

Don't think either of these are the one Nigel, although thanks for the links. On the Ralph Mctell home page, under NEWS and NEWS CUTTING 2, Summer Lightning was picked as No.4, in Top 5 Love Songs.

I don't know source of this though.

Thanks , Matt

Think this is the one.Got chords/tab if you want them but don't know how to put them on here.

Summer Lightning
Ralph McTell (b-side of 'Streets of London' single)

Move over here, come on sit down beside me
Oh closer now, come and put your arms, put your arms around me
Oh you had a bad day too
And I feel the same as you
Come on sit down.

It's just that when I get mad I end up saying things
If I thought about I wouldn't ever say
And I think that you alreadyknow that
But I'll say it anyway
Oh I'll say it anyway.

Don't let the day go down
The two of us still fighting
It's not a storm at all
No it's only Summer, only Summer Lightning
And we've still gt the night
So there's time to put it right
Let's go to bed.
