Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
Old age has laid its hand upon me;
Cold as a fire of ashy coal -
And where is the lovely Spanish Lady,
That maid so neat about the sole?


Another great song, though I hope I can say I'm in the grasp of middle age rather than old age! Now Dominic Behan claimed that Joseph Campbell wrote The Spanish Lady, and it is indeed included in the Collected Poems of Joseph Campbell, but surely it goes back further than that?

I have heard Jerry sing at Bradfield, and his singing is indeed a great treat. (He's not too bad at dancing either!)
