Over the Hills and Far Away
« on: February 07, 2017, 03:12:54 am »

A bit of Gary Moore... Nancy Camel is cave on East Mendip and the best Witch going on Mendip  (bit fit by all accounts and could drink the BEC under the table). Jane Brookes is the poor soul sacrificed to intolerance. Alice & Sid are digs I've found on East Mendip next to Nancy's and also relate to wonderland and a '70's punk group... And a tale of love and hope... On Mendip...

Council came for him one winter's night
Arrested, he was bound.
They said he'd been a caver'in,
his Hilti's had been found.

They marched him to the Hunter's Lodge,
In the cellar until dawn

And as they led him to the bar,
he knew that lager had been wrong

"You stand accused of caver'in,"
He heard the Wessex say
He knew without the MCG
tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom.

Under Mendip hills and cave away
for ten long years he'll dig all days.
Until St. Cuthbert's meets the seas
BEC bitch's life for him there'll be

He knew that it would cost him dear,
but yet he dare not say.
Were he'd caver'in that fateful night,
Nancy's secret stays.
He had to fight back years of rage.

Nancy's heartbeat like a drum.
For with Alice and Sid's best friend
There'll be no more nights of freedom.

Under Mendip hills and cave away
he swears he will return one day.

Until St. Cuthbert's meets the seas

back in Nancy's arms he swear he'll be.
Under Mendip hills and cave away

Under Mendip hills, over Mendip hills,
on Mendip hills and cave away.

Each night within his Hunter's cell,
he looks out through the bars.
He reads the letters that Nancy wrote.
One day he'll know the taste of freedom.

Under Mendip hills and cave away
Nancy prays he'll return one day
Until St. Cuthbert's meets the seas
back in her arms she swears he'll be.

Under Mendip hills and cave away
back in his arms she swears he'll be
far from the mountains and the seas,
Until St. Cuthbert's meets the seas
back in her arms she swears he'll be.

Under Mendip hills and cave away
Nancy says he'll return one day
Until St. Cuthbert's meets the seas

back in her arms she swears he'll be.
Under Mendip hills,
Under Mendip hills and cave away

Under Mendip hills,
Under Mendip hills and cave away

Nancy and Jane one day...

Ace! Here's one for the next committee meeting. I'm no longer involved on committees.
