Thread Name: Show of Hands - Roots - what a track!
Subject: RE: Show of Hands - Roots - what a track!
I thought you might like Falmouth Packet. It's very jolly and a good entertaining song...whereas 'Roots' of course is far deeper, that's why it means so much to so many people.

Thanks Liam. I got my original version of Steve's lyrics from someone else. And then when I got 'Witness' for my birthday we went to Dunster Castle for the day, took the CD with us...and when I got home I had the case...and the CD...but I'd lost the booklet with all the CD info and lyrics in! Grrrrrrrrrrr!

Somewhere in Dunster.........

"I've lost St. George from my CD rack
It's my booklet ooh! and I want it back"

I don't think they have an 'official' Show of Hands lyrics page on their site, although there is of course the Steve Knightley Songbook (both books in one now I think).....but 'Roots' is way too new to be in there.

It would be great if Show of Hands posted their lyrics up like George Papavgeris does on his site..and then all the correct words would be there for everyone to see anytime....and also to link straight into as well on various sites.

Glad to see the correct version. Amazing what a difference an 'in' and an 'and' can make isn't it? Because that sentence now is suddenly SO much more powerful.


Heck! I was thrilled with the words before....but now....I'm over the moon!!

"I've lost St. George IN the Union Jack
It's my flag too and I want it back!"

Oh YES!!! I'll be singing that at the top of my voice at Abbotsbury!

Apologies to Steve Knightley for that Dingbat of an Error! ;0)
