Here is the song the Fence sang at Gainsborough Folk Club last night. Well done Phil

Two Hundred Thousand

People working
Others laid in the sun
And for some, the day had just begun
Deep in the ocean
Mother nature stirred
And without even trying, shook the world

Chorus
And the wave came ashore
Through the towns and the valleys it poured
And two hundred thousand souls, entered heavens doors
The day the wave came ashore

In minutes it was over
The sea went away
Claiming so many lives that day
Nothing left standing
As far as the eye could see
An empty space where a village used to be

Chorus

We couldn't? believe our eyes
This used to be paradise
Now it's hell here on earth

Mothers and Daughters
Fathers and Sons
So many families, now are gone
Pictures on a wall
Show the missing and the lost
There's no way to ever count the cost

Chorus

Life still goes on
It's the will to survive
You do what you can to stay alive
We stretch out our hand
As we watch with a tear
While we pray that it never happens here

Lyrics and Melody by Philip Brougham 17th January 2005

I think I should allow Phil to play this number this Friday at Market Rasen Folk Club and we will have a whip round and any money collected will be sent to the relief fund.

What think yee all?

Two Hundred Thousand by Phil SHOULD be more popular than the song one of the Beegee brothers has released about the Tsunami!

Nice lyrics, Phil. But make that three hundred thousand. (And about as many again in Africa - every fortnight.)
