For Nobody To Hear – Sandy Denny

I can see them from over here. But this is no time to worry now, No time to shed a tear. The people are all smiling, And the letters are all too, The flowers they are all arranged And the notes they are all blue. Where are the words to say to you, Where do […]

Whispering Grass – Sandy Denny

Why tell the trees what ain’t so? Whispering grass, The trees don’t have to know. Why tell them all your secrets, Who kissed there long ago? Whispering grass, The trees don’t need to know. Don’t you tell it to the breeze, `Cos she will tell the birds and bees, And everyone will know Because you […]

Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor – Sandy Denny

Make me a pallet on your floor Make it soft, make it low, so your woman don’t know Make me a pallet on your floor. Come all you good time friends of mine, Come all you good time friends of mine. When I had ten dollars, you treated me so fine Where were you when […]

You Never Wanted Me – Sandy Denny

Not a word that passed between us comes to recall Just you shadow at the window as you pass on down the hall You never wanted me and never knew me at all I haven’t any picture to set before my eyes Nothing I can blame when the blues start to rise Just the memory […]

The Last Thing On My Mind – Sandy Denny

Made of sand, made of sand In the winking of an eye my soul is turning In your hand, in your hand. Chorus: Are you going away with no word of farewell? Will there be not a trace left behind? I could have loved you better Didn’t mean to be unkind But you know that […]

Friends – Sandy Denny

‘Til you’ve lost everything but what money can own. And you feel alright now, but for how long? You feel alright now, how long? Do me a favour, stay away from my door. I could use some good company but I don’t care for yours. No more pageants, no more. No more pageants, no more. […]

At The End Of The Day – Sandy Denny

You are the one I’m thinking of. You know it’s still a long long way, But I’ll be home at the end of the day. I’ll sing my songs just for you And I’ll bring my love home to you. I can hardly wait to see your face again, But I’ll be home at the […]
