Thread Name: ADD: Silver Coin (Hiscock)(from Archie Fisher)
Subject: Lyr Add: SILVER COIN^^
Joe, you're right, it is called 'Silver Coin', sung by Archie Fisher on 'Sunsets I've Galloped Into' which should be available as a CD. (Not quite sure, though!)


SILVER COIN
(Terry Hiscock)

Now that I'm older, though I'm not old enough to know
What it is to be lonely, what it is to be without a home
I've a friend nearby who loves me rain or shine
Don't ask me why
But her younger eyes are so much older eyes than mine

I thought I was well-read, wouldn't have to ask her for a lead
Till I read what her eyes said, then I knew there was nothing more to read
Nothing more to do and nothing more to say
But give all my words away
To someone who needs them who can't find a girl like you

And I ran all the way here to be the first to see the morning star
There were others before me for the sounds of beauty travel far
I hear it loud and clear and it rings like the silver coin
Thrown down on stone
Though I'm lost in the crowd I know you're around me somehow
