DT Lyrics:




Subject: words wanted.Last night in September
From: kab
Date: 14 Jul 04 - 06:00 PM

I heard a song many years ago and this is what I think I remember:
Last night in September and the nights are drawing down
There's an out of season feeling in that little seaport town
And along the shadowed esplanade beside the quiet sand
an out of season couple walk hand in tired hand

Chorus.Let me draw your coat about you love
and draw your muffler tight
the breezes send a shiver down the esplanade tonight

if anyone can complete or extend the song I should be delighted and any details of who and when and where etc would be appreciated.
Bless you all

A bit more information as to when and where you heard it, and who sung it would be helpful....

I think you'll find it's a John Conolly song called "Out of Season" - it's on one of my (and Linda's) favourite (double) CDs "By Humber's Brown Water" which is a wonderful collection of songs by John Conolly and Bill Meek.

If you like that song - get the CD - it's got over 40 songs all of which are great.

Get you geography right RtS - I know it's a long way from Bracknell, but Bill and John come from the other (south) bank of the Humber, namely the Grimsby/Cleethorpes area which is in Lincolnshire. 'Ull is in Yorkshire and quite a distance away via the Humber Bridge unless you've got a boat.

BTW - There's details of the CD here.

OUT OF SEASON
John Conolly

Last week in September and the nights are drawing down
There's an end of summer feeling in the lazy seaport town
And along the shadowed esplanade beside the quiet sand
There's an out of season couple strolling hand in tired hand
Let me wrap your coat about you love and draw your muffler tight
For the breezes send a shiver down the esplanade tonight

They remember days of summer with the sunlight's brassy glare
And a million bursting roses shining through the perfumed air
When the moon was made of honey and the night a secret friend
And when love and time were new begun and seemed they'd never end
And the sea is full of voices ringing clear and ringing bright
As remembrance walks beside them down the esplanade tonight

And they dream of building bungalows beside the singing sea
But the summertime is over and the dream can never be
And it may be out of season but the days are bright and clear
When the old folks' outing brings them to the seaside once a year
And the kindly moon is smiling with a friendly yellow light
And there's still the scent of roses on the esplanade tonight

Thanks Sooz - it's a lovely set of words. John and Bill have written so many wonderful songs that many people have never heard. "Angels of Lincoln" is another beauty - about the fact that mason who carved the stone angels around the cathedral used his own family for the models.

Another great song, Dave - and a particularly good version on Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher's CD "Less Sprightly.
More good news - Bill Meek is coming out of retirement to appear with John Conolly at Gainsborough Folk Festival. :
