Take Me Away – Sandy Denny

Look around, these are troublesome times The sun beats down on our hunger and thirst It would soon all be over if we let it be worse Chorus Take me away, take me away Take me away, take me away If not for you how would I keep going No one to be near, no […]

I’m A Dreamer – Sandy Denny

I can’t imagine what it’s like to be you. It’s a mystery to me every day, And I’ve got to get away. I put a bet on with a bookie For the race they put on over in Kentucky. It’s lovely at this time of year, so they say, And I’ve got to get away. […]

Wretched Wilbur – Sandy Denny

Why it took so long to see That even if I do possess Some seeds of honesty, There is no garden, So how come I have no land? I shall be waiting here awhile To see what comes to hand. Misers mise and compromise; I know what I have seen. The wanderers are in the […]

Been On The Road So Long – Sandy Denny

Been tired and broke, so long I’ve been to the south where the winds they were warm Travelling the road of no return, so long I’ve seen what was war, so long The ruins and the scars, so long The mansions of mud, the wounds and the blood Seen the dying of all that was […]

Gold Dust – Sandy Denny

If your eyes are blue you know the rest Champagne if it’s very cool It’s never very formal how you dress For oysters by the swimming pool Then slip away into the mountainside Like the man in the Lazy E’ It’s great to have a place where you can hide Why you must amazes me […]

Silver Threads And Golden Needles – Sandy Denny

All I want’s the love you promised beneath the haloed moon But you think I should be happy with your money and your name And hide myself in sorrow while you play your cheating game Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine And I dare not drown my sorrows in the […]

Candle In The Wind – Sandy Denny

Though I never knew you at all You had the grace to hold yourself While those around you crawled They crawled out of the woodwork And they whispered into your brain They set you on the treadmill And they made you change your name Chorus And it seems to me you lived your life Like […]

Sweet Rosemary – Sandy Denny

Sweet Rosemary did say. She gathered flowers and she sang All about her wedding day. Oh when I was a lass at school I looked out at the sky, And now among the woodlands cool, Gathering sweet primroses I. I wish I was a little bird, With wings that I could fly, Then I would […]

Dark The Night – Sandy Denny

Without you. Warming like the sand upon the land. How can we doubt you? Dark to me the night and dim the morning light Tomorrow. How can we not see the simple melody Of sorrow? Oh to be with you, oh to see them through Those days when we think you are gone, They are […]

It Suits Me Well – Sandy Denny

I travel the land. There are no chains about me I am me own man. I can tell a fair old story which I’m sure ain’t no surprise Of the places I have been, oh, And they ain’t no lies. I’ve never had a proper home, Not one like yours is. I’ve nearly always had […]

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 […]

Pretty Polly – Sandy Denny

Polly, pretty Polly, come go along with me Before we get married some pleasure to see She got up behind him and away they did ride She got up behind him and away they did ride Over the hills and the valleys so wide They rode a little further and what did they spy They […]

Blackwaterside – Sandy Denny

Down by Blackwaterside ‘Twas gazing all around me When the Irish lad I spied All through the first part of that night We did lie in sport and play, When this young man arose and he gathered his clothes, Saying, “Fare thee well today”. That’s not the promise that you gave to me When the […]

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 […]
