Lyrics
I went down to Cheltenham
To meet my MacJams friends
When we get together
The music never ends

The only rule is to have some fun
And write the lyrics on the run
We should do this every year
Spending time with everyone

We can choose the songs we sing
While drinking beer and everything
We travel from across the land
And form ourselves into a band

Sitting in the living room
This really feels like being home
The only rule is to have some fun
And write the lyrics on the run
We should do this every year
Spending time with everyone

Leaving here is hard for me
But pictures kept and memories
Are all the things that I will keep
Close to me

At Caroline's House of Shiny Lights
We'll be singing through the night
Wish that we could all stay here
But we'll be back again next year

The only rule is to have some fun
And write the lyrics on the run
We will do this every year
Spending time with everyone

I can tell the effort here to deliver a more 'serious' approach to the fun you had. Yet it remains a stamp in time, good time for the gathering.

This is my fave
...of the one's we recorded. It has a really nice early Fairport kinda feel to it. Great 'mock bodhran' from Rebsie there. Glad we've got it here now for posterity!
Look forward to next year's meet up
Cheers

As soon as my back is turned
you go all serious.

Lovely sound. As Steve said, early Fairport.

Even some fledgling harmonies and neat noodling (JC?)

Cheers
