The Plainsman  Fairport Convention

From 'Rosie' 1973
Another melancholic Trevor Lucas song
Capo II
Intro: C, F, G, F, C
I c[C]ome from the moor and the m[F]ountain
From the w[G]aterf[F]all and str[C]eams
I turned me back on the m[F]ountain tr[C]ack
I'm walking in a dr[Am]eam
And e[C]very new h[F]oriz[C]on
To me it seems the s[Am]ame
And e[C]verywhere look o[F]ld and bad
While t[G]ravelling [F]on the pl[C]ain
C, F, G, F, C
Thus no one rides this road with me
A plainsman rides alone
No welcome waits by a city gate
No voice to call me home
Alone I came into this place
And that is how I will go
And all I learn is the season's turn
It's all I need to know
Oh, the world is hung with silver tongues
With good advice to give
If you can't show me how to die
Don't tell me how to live
The plainsman's song, though it's seldom long
It's more than meets the ear
And all I believe is the falling leaves
At the turning of the year
