Meet on the ledge

Tuesday, 6 December 2011

We used to say “There’d come the day we’d all be making songs
Or finding better words” These ideas never lasted long

The way is up along the road, the air is growing thin
Too many friends who tried, blown off this mountain with the wind

Meet on the ledge, we’re going to meet on the ledge
When my time is up, I’m going to see all my friends
Meet on the ledge, we’re going to meet on the ledge
If you really mean it, it all comes around again

Yet now I see, I’m all alone, but that’s the only way to be
You’ll have your chance again, then you can do the work for me

Meet on the ledge, we’re going to meet on the ledge
When my time is up, I’m going to see all my friends
Meet on the ledge, we’re going to meet on the ledge
If you really mean it, it all comes around again
Meet on the ledge, we’re going to meet on the ledge
When my time is up, I’m going to see all my friends
Meet on the ledge, we’re going to meet on the ledge
If you really mean it, it all comes around again

    That’s the one, Charles. You’ve got it in one. You bastards are all going to sing it at my funeral, or I’ll be after you for EVER!

    (Simon Nicoll,he at bottom left in pic taken, er, just a few years back now, said quite recently that he is increasingly often asked to sing it at funerals; Sandy Denny (she of the goose-flesh-inducing voice, praises to her memory)he ain’t, but in a different way, he does a grand job. Come to Cropredy Festival and find out!)
