Trouble with a capital T

Postby edwardkeenaghan » Sun Oct 22, 2006 3:42 pm

TROUBLE (WITH A CAPITAL T)

High on the mountain stands a boat,
But are they gods or real folk?
We can't see the fire but we smell the smoke.
Who'll take the plough? Who'll be the yoke?
Night after night I don't believe.
We are the ones you won't deceive.
Not a thing will you achieve
'cos we belong and we won't leave.

Trouble, trouble.
I try to chase trouble but it's chasing me.
Trouble.
Trouble with a capital T.

Lay down your silver and your gold.
I'm a man who can't be sold.
And, even when my heart grows cold,
I'll curse your evil stranglehold.
The waves are running much too high.
It's got so dark can't see the sky.
But a change is coming by and by
A time to laugh, a time to die.

High on the mountain stands a boat,
But are they gods or real folk?
We can't see the fire but we smell the smoke.
Who'll take the plough? Who'll be the yoke?

Been so long away from home,
I've almost made this place my own.
Now it seems I'll soon be gone,
Moving on and all alone.

Horslips are great - my Dad was a big fan of theirs and a few years ago I strated checking out his old LPs and tapes of them.

My favourite album of theirs is The Tain.

Malia,

I would highly recommend Patrick Ball.

He specializes in the Celtic harp, strung with wire, as opposed to nylon, which gives his music a very bell-like tone with each note.

Ypu can read more about him here.
