Wind in the Willows

Description
'willow' - When performing LIVE I sometimes also do the more traditional version - to benefit the dancers - which was also done by a guest vocalist with Candice Night and Ritchie Blackmore (Blackmore's Night)- which in turn has more of a distinctive waltz flavour . . .
the guitar and vocals - I did in one swoop - and altered the meldy line -
orchestration - I did later on . . .

Lyrics
" as I went a walkin' one morning in spring
I met with some travellers on an old country lane
one was an old man, the second a maid . . . .
the third was a young lass who smiled as she said -
the wind in the willows - the birds in the sky -
the bright sun to warm us - wherever we lie -
we have bread and fishes and a jug of red wine -
the share on our journeys - with all of mankind -

so I asked them to tell me their names and their race -
so I could remember the smiles on their face
our names they mean nothing - they change throughout time -
so come sit beside us - and share in our wine -
so I sat down beside them - with flowers all around -
we ate from a mantle - spread out on the ground -
they told me of prophets and peoples and kings -
and all of the one god who knows everything -

the wind in the willows - the birds in the sky -
the bright sun to warm us - wherever we lie -
we have bread and fishes - and a jug of red wine -
to share on our journeys with all of mankind -

we're travelling to glaston on england's green lanes
to hear of man's troubles - to hear of their pains -
were travelin' the wide world o'er land o'er sea
to tell all the peoples - how they can be free -

so sadly I left them - on the old country lane -
I know that I'll never see them again -
one was an old man the second a maid -
the third was a young boy who smiled as he said -
the wind in the willows - the birds in the sky -
the bright sun to warm us wherever we lie -
we have bread and fishes - and a jug of red wine -
to share on our journeys - with all of mankind."

Very nice folk vibe here
A little bit of John Denver in this I think. Very easy on the ears and mellow. Melodic and nuanced performance. Well done!

I Loved This
Very wistful and dreamy, with a bit of a Celtic feel to it. I just love songs in 3/4 time; it gives it such a lilt. I think the orchestration is beautiful.
