lyrics

A Kentish singer came
While late in bed I lay
I idled on the edge of sleep
And listened as he played

A voice of twisted branches
With tenderness perfumed
It was if a hawthorne tree
Had in the winter bloomed

As I came to he was telling
Of an endless morning light
I felt I’d woke to May Day dawn
That late November night

With a voice
Like a hook
Oh, he’s pulling me gently
To the old song book
And the dust blows away as he sighs
And the songs of Other England
Come alive

We comb the world for beauty
We pine for the unique
And then you hear a wealth of it
In England’s underneath

And this is how I found it
I let him be my guide
He led me up to the heavy doors
And flung them open wide

With a voice
Like a hook
Oh, he’s pulling me gently
To the old song book
We will hear what they left us to find
As the songs of Other England
As the songs of Other England
Come alive

With a voice
Like a hook
Oh, he’s pulling me gently
To the old song book
To be sung
All they need to survive
Hear the songs of Other England
The songs of Other England
Come alive
