Joe Offer Origins: Ballad of Grace Darling (various songs) (29) ADDPOP: Grace Darling (The Strawbs) 22 Feb 19


Here's a very different song from the Strawbs:

GRACE DARLING
(recorded by the Strawbs)

[Verse 1]
You have been my lighthouse
In every storm
You have given shelter
You have kept me safe and warm
And in my darkest nights
You have shone your brightest lights
You are my saving grace
Darling, I love you

[Verse 2]
You have been the pilot
Who guides me home
You have been the my rock
As on the seven seas I roam
And when I was becalmed
You were the strength in my arms
You are my saving grace
Darling, I love you

[Interlude]
And when I found my back
Was torn and broken on the reef
You sailed your tiny boat
Across the dark seas of my disbelief

[Verse 3]
You have been the anchor
And I the chain
Straining as we hold ourselves
Together in the rain
I have found you ever there
My constant keeper's daughter fair
You are my saving grace
Darling, I love you
