about

That difficult second album, turns out to be rather easy (and rather good). The usual mix- English, French, Scandinavian, Galician and self written tunes, plus two songs from Andrew King in the guitar chair. and one trad.arr. song from Kevin.

Track Name: The Rebel Soldier
The Rebel Soldier
Traditional

One morning, one morning, one morning in May
I heard a poor soldier lamenting and say,
I heard a poor soldier lamenting and mourn:
I am a rebel soldier and far from my home.

It's grape shot and musket and the cannons lumber loud
There's many a mangled body, a blanket for a shroud
There's many a mangled body left on the field alone.
I am a rebel soldier and far from my home.

I'll eat when I'm hungry and drink when I am dry.
If the Yankees don't kill me I'll live until I die,
If the Yankees don't kill me and cause me to mourn.
I am a rebel soldier and far from my home.

I'll build me a castle on some green mountain high
Where the wild geese can see me as they do pass by,
Where the wild geese can see me and hear my sad mourn:
I am a rebel soldier and far from my home.
