GUEST,Wolfgang Lyr Req: Emigrant(s) by the Fureys (18) RE: Lyr Req: Emigrant(s) by the Fureys 07 May 13

How much more easy it is to listen to an already transcribed song than to do the transcription from scratch. Thanks, Kenny.

I have that song on tape and don't know from where I copied it.

I also hear "days", "crimson", and "sea sand shore".

??? could be "golden" but that's more a guess from the possible sense than from what I actually hear. What I hear might just as well be "goddamned".

Three words I hear very slightly different. I have them in boldface below:

When sweet days they do arise
And you hear the sounds of butterflies
Or the spirit of some crimson rose
Or the echo of that sea sand shore
It is the hour I leave this place
Made fair by you but you alone
So here's Godspeed one last embrace
Way down below them stepping stones.

And in that stream long leaf flowers weep
Way down beyond that golden(?) strand
Like between a rainbow and the sun
My boat sets seaward from the land
And love may come and love may go
Just like that bird from tree to tree
But when she sleeps, her heart I know
Will wander with me on the sea.
