GINNY


It wasn’t the dragon
It wasn’t Merlin
It wasn’t the jester
Nor his old tambourine


It wasn’t the French knight
They called Lancelot
Nor evil Morgan le Fay
And the fall of Camelot


Dark Age’s disasters
Round table no more
Le Morte d’Arthur
Lady of the Lake came ashore
She took care of Excalibur
Kept it safe under water
Away from the wars
Away from the slaughter


It wasn’t because of a battle
Nor a lost wedding ring
It was his lady Ginny
Who broke the heart of Arthur, her King


She shouldn’t get blamed though
She just loved two great men
Love has its drawbacks
In the now and back then


Some say it’s all fiction
Or was just a dumb game
But one things for certain
Nothing would be ever the same


I have to admit I’m into Arthurian legend lately. Reading is about the only plus coming out of corona virus. I don’t think this lyrical style verse will ever make a song, but who knows what direction I’ll take when the world’s back to normal.


Next, probably my favourite song for all sorts of reasons. It’s from the Irish band Villagers and it is what I’d call a complete number. It’s just a shame it wasn’t mine.


Here’s one of mine. A weird instrumental called Barbed Wire from my The Forgotten Daughter Of Zeus album. I hope you enjoy;

LEAVING CAMELOT

(me in the days before I morphed into a frozen statue outside a pet shop in the High Street)

LEAVING CAMELOT

My past is in my pocket

My future still in my hands

I’ve thrown Excalibur into deep waters

I’ll settle for time’s shifting sands

Save your prayers for the others

Don’t kill time waiting on me

I don’t need your wasted words

I don’t need them, let it be

I’ve spent too long in the shadow of King Arthur

I’m sick and tired of playing the part of Lancelot

When all I ever needed, was my guitar and any song

‘Goodbye, farewell’ I’m leaving Camelot

 

I’ll try and forget how cold it is outside. A good time for a song about dreams, ‘Dream Rescuer’ by Zoolon aka George;

Next a song, ‘At the end of the Day’ by Amon Tobin from the truly amazing sound art album ‘Foley Room’;
