Sydney Carter, R.I.P.

Sydney Carter died this weekend, aged 88.

"One more step along the road I go,
From the old, on into the new,
I'll be travelling along with you."

Sad news, Linda; he'll be missed.

Like the Snow

Tell me, where did Helen go?
Here is where she had her dwelling.
She has vanished like the snow -
Where, there is no way of telling;
Here is where she had her dwelling.
All the while they come and they go -
Where, there is no way of telling;
She has vanished like the snow.

What became of Heloise?
Abelard - he was her lover -
Notre Dame or Saint Denys;
Where he went I can't discover.
Abelard, he was her lover.
All the while they come and they go -
Where, there is no way of telling;
She has vanished like the snow.

Joan came riding from Lorraine -
Everybody knows the story.
England burnt her in Rouen;
Theirs the shame and ours the glory,
Everybody knows the story -
All the while they come and they go -
England's shame and France's glory,
She has vanished like the snow.

Where the time and where the place is -
That is what I'd like to know,
Where their glory and their grace is
When they vanish like the snow.


Sydney Carter

Dance, then, wherever you may be;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said He,
And I'll lead you all wherever you may be,
I'll lead you all in the dance, said He.

He'll be remembered as long as his songs are sung.

The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn
Now is the time for a child to be born
He'll cry for the moon and laugh at the sun
If he's a boy, he'll carry a gun
Sang the crow on the cradle

I am urgently seeking the music for 'One more step' to be used a my partner's mothers funeral next Monday.

If anyone out there in cyber land has it or knows where I can download it we would be extremely grateful.

Bless you all
