GUEST,Guest Nancy of London (John Faulkner version?) (37) RE: Nancy of London (John Faulkner version?) 10 Jun 19


"'Nancy of London' is probably an error."
No reason in the world to suggest this came from an under-talented hack
It is a superbly reflective song - often referred to as "drunken-daft" - another example from the same source is "Ye Mariners All"
In both cases the singer is addressing himself and, in a few superbly constructed verses, is pouring out his loneliness
It lacks narrative because it doesn't need a story - the feelings expressed are those who appear to have "been there and done that" - no desk-bound pen-pusher could hope to make something as sensitive as this
