바쉬티 번연VashtiBunyan의 유일한 음반 Just Another Diamond Day(1970, Philips 6308 019)는 영국 포크 매니아들에게 정말 섹시한 음반이었다고 할 수 있다. 어쿠스틱 기타 한대 든 청아한 여성보컬의 앨범인데다 브리티쉬 포크의 쟁쟁한 인물들이 참여한 음반이다. 그런고로 입소문은 퍼졌는데 이 음반은 2001년까지 CD화가 되지 않았었으니 한번 빠지면 정말 헤어나기 어렵다는 영국 포크에 푹 빠져버린 이들을 이 음반은 얼마나 달구었겠는가. 바쉬티는 풋풋한 느낌을 물씬 풍기는 미인인데다 이후 잠적해버려 신비감까지 더했으니 더 말할 필요도 없다.

간단하게 약력을 살펴보자. 그녀의 홈페이지 http://www.anotherday.co.uk 에서 많은 정보를 얻을 수 있었다.
65년에 아트스쿨을 중퇴하고 소호Soho 근처의 클럽에서 노래를 하던 그녀는 롤링 스톤즈RollingStones의 매니저 앤드류 올덤Andrew Loog Oldham의 눈에 들어 싱글 Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind/I Want To Be Alone를 녹음한다. 바쉬티Vashti라고 성을 뺀 채 발매한 이 싱글은 롤링 스톤즈의 곡이었는데 그다지 히트를 치진 못했다. 다시 클럽을 전전하는 생활을 하게된 바쉬티는 그냥 곡을 쓰고 녹음하는 일로 다시 돌아갔다. 66, 67년까지 다른 이들에게 곡을 주기도 하며 기회를 바라보던 바쉬티는 일이 잘 안풀리자 전원생활을 하기도 했는데 그러던 중 68년 7월에 친구 도노반Donovan이 있는 스카이섬Isle of Skye까지 마차여행을 떠난다. 이 기간에도 그녀는 계속 곡을 쓴다. 69년에 닉 드레이크NickDrake의 프로듀서이기도 한 포크계의 대부 조 보이드JoeBoyd에게 곡을 보여줄 기회를 얻어 그녀는 런던으로 돌아와 앨범을 녹음하는데 그것이 바로 유일한 앨범 Just Another Diamond Day이다. 70년에 앨범을 발매하고 그것의 홍보를 계속하다가 음악 산업에 염증을 느낀 그녀는 음악을 접고 아일랜드Ireland로 이주한다.
가정주부로 살던 그녀는 인터넷을 접하고 자신이 마차에서 닭, 개 그리고 아이들과 함께 쓰고 녹음했던 그 곡들이 여기저기에서 들려지고 있다는 것을 알았다. 그리고 처음 발매했을 때 제대로 홍보조차 못해 사라졌던 음반들을 많은 이들이 찾는다는 것을 알고 여기저기 수소문하여 재발매를 하였다.
그녀는 피아노 매직PianoMagic의 6번째 앨범 Writers Without Homes(2002)에서 일부 보컬을 맡아 32년만에 음악계에 모습을 나타냈다.

70년에 소량 발매했지만 홍보미비로 거의 팔리지 않은 이 앨범은 얼마 못가 절판되었고 내용 자체가 훌륭했던 탓에 입소문만 커져서 결국 많은 이들이 애타게 찾는 희귀반이 되었다. 그리고 이제 재발매가 되었으니 명성에 걸맞는 훌륭한 음반인지 아닌지 가려볼 차례다.
아무래도 여성보컬이다보니 스파이로자이러Spirogyra의 바바라 개스킨BarbaraGaskin이나 페어포트 컨벤션FairportConvention의 샌디 대니SandyDanny 등이 자연스럽게 비교되는데 바바라 개스킨의 이지적 천사표 보컬이나 샌디 대니처럼 파워풀한 보컬이 아니다. 바쉬티의 보컬은 시골 처녀의 자장가같은 목소리 정도로 말할 수 있지 않을까 싶다. 굳이 비교하자면 페어포트 컨벤션의 첫 여성 보컬이었고 트레이더 혼TraderHorne에서 소박한 보컬을 들려준 쥬디 디블Judy Dyble이 비교적 유사한 보컬로 생각된다. 데뷔시에 그녀는 '제 2의 마리안느 훼이스풀MarianneFaithfull'이라는 평을 들었으나 그보다는 존 바에즈JoanBaez의 영향이 더 크게 느껴진다.
전체적으로 음반은 어쿠스틱 기타 반주 위에 바쉬티의 보컬이 담긴 형태인데 그것만으로도 얼마든지 훌륭한 음악이 나오는 것을 들으면 포크라는 장르가 가진 힘을 다시한번 느끼지 않을 수 없다. 켈틱 음악적인 바이올린 선율이 깔린 곡들도 조금 있는데 스코틀랜드에서 방황했고 이후 아일랜드로 이주한 그녀를 생각해볼 때 켈틱 포크의 영향이 나타나는 것은 어쩌면 당연한 것이다.
포크쪽에는 워낙 숨은 명 연주자들이 많아 딱히 튀지도 않지만 이 앨범에는 페어포트 컨벤션의 데이브 스와브릭Dave Swarbrick과 사이먼 리콜Simon Nicol, 인크레더블 스트링 밴드의 로빈 윌리엄슨Robin Williamson이 연주해주고 있다. 그리고 이 두 밴드의 프로듀서 이기도 한 조 보이드가 프로듀스를 하였고 스트롭스Strawbs의 멤버이자 닉 드레이크등의 현악 어레인저로 유명한 로버트 커비Robert Kirby가 현악 어레인징을 맡았다. 조 보이드의 전폭적 지원으로 만들어진 음반인 것이다.

전체적으로 곡들은 비슷한 느낌이다. 이건 대부분의 포크 앨범들이 마찬가지이니 그것으로 뭐라하면 안될 것이다. 각 아티스트의 스타일과 그 앨범이 녹음된 시대를 염두에 두고 한곡씩 떼어듣거나 하면 어느날 그 곡들이 귀에 들어오는, 그런 음악이 포크인 것이다. 아마 Lily Pond를 들을때 귀가 솔깃할 텐데 우리에겐 '반짝 반짝 작은별'로도 잘 알려진 'ABC송'이라서 그렇다. 그녀의 목소리를 들으면 동화에 나오는 소녀가 연상된다.
마냥 착한 첫곡 Diamond Day에는 이 앨범에 나타날 면면들이 다 들어있다. 서정적이고 따사롭기까지 한 보컬 스타일, 단정하게 깔리는 기타반주, 사이사이 나오는 플룻 반주, 현악 반주 등이 2분도 안되는 곡 하나에 꼼꼼히 들어있다.
당시에 그녀를 '여성 밥 딜런'이라고 했다는데 내가 듣기에 그녀는 '여성 닉 드레이크'라고 하는 것이 더 옳을 것이다. Winter is Blue나 Hebridean Sun에서 들을 수 있는 나직한 읊조림이나 조금은 우울한 서정성은 정말 그와 비슷하다.

이 재발매반에는 임미디에이트Immediate에 의해 녹음되기도 한 I'd Like To Walk Around In Your Mind와 싱글 Love Song, Winter is Blue 그리고 앨범의 마지막 곡이기도 한 14번곡 Iris's Song for us의 오리지널 버젼인 Iris's Song이 담겨있다. 이 곡들이 담긴 것은 무척 고마운 일이지만 그녀의 나머지 곡들 Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind, I Want To Be Alone, Train Song, Coldest Night Of The Year이 안담긴 것은 아쉬운 일이기도 하다. 이 네곡을 더하면 음원으로 발매된 그녀의 곡은 모두 갖추게 되는 것이다.

몇년전 시완레코드에서 전략적으로 브리티쉬 포크 음반들을 발매해 트레이더 혼, 휘슬러Whistler, 크로스와 로스KeithCross & Peter Ross, 스파이로자이러, 튜더 롯지TudorLodge 등의 수많은 명반들이 소개되었다. 나도 그 덕에 좋은음반들을 듣게되어 정서순화(?)에 큰 도움을 받았는데 이 음반 Just Another Diamond Day는 그 명반대열 속에 당당히 들어가도 좋다. -- 거북이 2003-2-16 12:17

Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind (Jagger /Richard 1965 (c) Mirage Music)

Why does the sky turn grey every night Sun rise again in time Why do you think of the first love you had Somethings just stick in your mind

Why does the rain fall down on the earth Why do the clouds keep crying Why do you sleep curled up like a child Some things just stick in your mind

Why when the children grow up and leave Still remember their nursery rhymes Why must there be so much hate in their lives Some things just stick in their minds

I Want To Be Alone (Bunyan (c)Andes Music 1965)

You know there are times when I don’t need you But you seem to think it means Don’t love you but I do But sometimes I want to be alone Somewhere on my own

I don’t know why it is but I sometimes feel That I have to get away yet I know I love you But sometimes I want to be alone Somewhere on my own

Don’t make me stay to walk aimlessly Hand in hand Just today set me free Let me be alone

Tomorrow I may feel that I can’t go through Even one more lonely hour Without you, yet its true That sometimes I have to be alone Let me be alone

Train Song (Vashti Bunyan/Alastair Clayre(c)MCPS)

Travelling north, travelling north to find you Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes Don’t even know what I’ll find when I get to you Call out your name love, don’t be surprised

It’s so many miles and so long since I’ve met you Don’t even know what I’ll find when I get to you But suddenly now, I know where I belong It’s many hundred miles but it won’t be long

What will I do if there’s someone with you Maybe someone you’ve always known How do I know I can come and give to you Love with no warning and find you alone

It’s so many miles and so long since I’ve met you Don’t even know what I’ll find when I get to you But suddenly now, I know where I belong It’s many hundred miles and it won’t be long

Painting by Whyn Lewis 1999

Love Song (Bunyan (c) MCPS 1966)

I love your eyes when you look away Thinking somewhere else of what ought to be When they’re suddenly blue for a moment of time Then the colour goes when you look at me

I love your hands as a part of you As they write a word just by staying still When you talk they move, painting what you say So I understand more than words can tell

I love your hair in the dark it’s soft In the light it moves, red and green are brown All the time it takes for a night to pass And a lifetime grows as the day comes down

I love you now as you don’t love me I can’t let you know you’re too far away But I wonder now just what did you see When you looked at me in that loveless wayWinter is Blue (Bunyan (c) MCPS) 1966

Winter is blue Living is gone Some are just sleeping In spring they’ll go on Our love is dead Nothing but crying Love will not find even One more new morning

Why must I stay here Rain comes I’m sitting here Watching love moving Away into yesterday

Winter is blue Everything’s leaving Fires are now burning And life has reason I am alone Waiting for nothing If my heart freezes I won’t feel the breaking

Why must I stay here Rain comes I’m sitting here Watching love moving Away into yesterday

v.b.1966

Coldest Night of the Year (Mann/Weill)

Baby baby it’s late and you’d better go, it’s after three Honey please have a heart, just look at that snow, take pity on me. I can hear that north wind blowing, and the fire is oh so warm Well I know you should be going, but how can I send you out in that storm

Baby its cold out there, and it’s getting colder Baby it’s cold out there, getting colder Matter of fact better cuddle up here It’s the coldest night of the year

Baby baby I know if you wanted to, you’d brave the snow But I haven’t been well I might catch the flu or a cold in my nose Lets snuggle close together while the whole world turns to ice Just the victims of the weather Sending you home now just wouldn’t be nice

Baby its cold out there, and it’s getting colder Baby it’s cold out there, getting colder Matter of fact better cuddle up here It’s the coldest night of the year Ok? Whynot..

Drawing by Whyn Lewis 1999

I’d Like To Walk Around In Your Mind (Bunyan 1967 (c) MCPS)

I’d like to walk around in your mind someday I’d like to walk all over the things you say to me

I’d like to run and jump on your solitude I’d like to rearrange your attitude to me

You say you just want peace and to never hurt anyone You see the end before the beginning has ever begun

I would disturb your easy tranquillity I’d turn away the sad impossibility of your smile

I’d sit there in the sun of the things I like about you I’d sing my songs and find out just what they mean to you

But most of all I’d like you to be unaware Then I’d just wander away, trailing palm leaves behind me So you don’t even know I’ve been there.

Diamond Day (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Just another diamond day Just a blade of grass Just another bale of hay And the horses pass.

Just another field to plough Just a grain of wheat Just a sack of seed to sow And the children eat.

Just another life to live Just a word to say Just another love to give And a diamond dayPainting by Jenny Richardson 1972

Glow worms (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Glow worms show the path we have to tread Dreamers we should be asleep in bed Moving slowly through the springtime air Holding moments in the depth of care holding moments in the depth of care

Whisper fairy stories till they’re real, Wonder how the night can make us feel Loving living more with love to stay Long past sadness that was in our way long past sadness that was in our way

Dawntime mist begins reflecting light, Waking sun will soon forget our night Love me through the day and I’ll with you go Into summer and the next year’s snow into summer and the next year's snowPainting by Whyn Lewis 2000

Timothy Grub (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Maurice Snail and Timothy Grub, Swanney and Blue and Emily Grub Decided one day to go into the wood And build them a house and live there if they could And they stayed there a while in the trees and the rain Till one day two Blue Men said you’re all insane And to please not come here again

They had a green car called ‘Happiness Runs’ Friday comes and Happiness runs Out of petrol and everyone gets out to push And suddenly see through a gap in the bush A real caravan, just like the one in their dreams The gypsy doesn’t want it for nowadays it seems His home stays in one place and gleams

He told them that he had a horse down the lane Saturday morning they went back again He showed them a shed that was built out of tin He opened the door and they all peered within And there lying on straw was a horse black as night With a star on her forehead and eyes full of light And they all fell in love at first sight

They thought and they thought about having Black Bess Timothy planted some mustard and cress They lived in a cupboard and made it their home And lay there and dreamed of the days when they’d roam Up and down all the hills of the North countryside With the dogs eating buttercups on the wayside And they’d wave all the cities ‘goodbye’

Where I Like To Stand (words John James/music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

The hound bays the sheep graze I’m counting the boats in the bay As they float they seem to say-‘I’m counting the waves, I’m counting the waves’ The men in the boats they wave to their wives and say ‘I’m counting the hours, counting the hours, counting the hours in the day’

I’m counting the gulls that sit on the waves Surrounding the boats in the bay I’m counting the miles till we’re there Where the sun and the rain and the snow Fall on the seeds and make them grow Fall on the rocks and make them crack into pebbles and into sand Which is where I like to stand

Drawing by John James 1968

Lily Pond (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

In a lily pond I lay all upon a summer’s day Then I chased a dragonfly all across an ancient sky Falling with a thousand stars down the Milky Way to Mars Back again in time for day In a lily pond I lay

And the only thing he said to me Was- ‘young lady I love thee’

Painting by Whyn Lewis 1999

Swallow Song (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

And there’s a sunset brimming over the sky And there’s a swallow teaching it’s young how to fly Up on high See how fast the summer passes by

And there’s an oak leaf turning green into brown And there’s a pine so proud of her evergreen gown Looking down See how fast the winter comes around

And there’s a rain cloud passing over our heads And there’s a cat on the doorstep waiting to be fed Milk and bread Day is done and now it’s time for bedPainting by Jenny Richardson 1973

Window Over The Bay (words Robert Lewis/music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

I wish I had a window over the bay And a black horse grazing on the green all day I wish I had a well to draw my water from And a warm log fire for when the summer is gone

I wish I had a window over the bay And a flock of white sheep to watch from where I lay I wish I had a little boat bobbing on the deep And a big wooden table all laid out for tea

I wish I had a window over the bay And a dreamy eyed cow to fill my milking pail I wish I had a cockerel to raise me at dawn And a little bed to sleep in when the curtains are drawn

Painting by John James

Rose Hip November (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Rose hip November - autumn I’ll remember Gold landing at our door, catch one leaf and fortune will surround you evermore

Pine tree very tall, waiting for snow to fall Mist hangs very still, caught by dawn in castle moats around the sleeping hill

Now a pipe is heard happy is the shepherd shepherdess and dog, father of the pastureland and mother of the flock

Rosehip November - autumn I’ll remember Gold landing at our door, catch one Leif and fortune will surround you Evermore evermore evermore

Drawing by Robert Lewis 1969

Hebridean Sun (words Robert Lewis/music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Travelling towards a Hebridean sun To build a white tower in our heads begun

The grass knows, the hills know, we all know Spring has come, the good fountain flows.

Each hoof fall brings us nearer the land Of peat and seabirds and silver sand.

The grass knows, the hills know, we all know Spring has come, the good fountain flows.

Come wind Come rain (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Come wind come rain we’re off again, Our muddy boots plod down the lane The snow has snowed now the grass has growed And it’s time that we were on the road.

Hey ho the wind and the rain The passers by wave their arms and grin

Come wind come rain we’re off again Our muddy boots plod down the lane The mare is shod the miles untrod Between us and the 'land of god'..

We’re on our way and everyday Is another ten miles and an armful of hay Hey ho the wind and the rain Another ten miles and a bucket of grain.

Drawing by Robert Lewis 1969

Rainbow River (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

The rainbow river is a laughing stream Down in a valley by a mountain that is pine tree tall The rainbow river has a small boy fishing with a worm And a jam jar by the waterfall Don’t make a sound don’t disturb the ground The biggest fish you ever saw is around And the rainbow river gives a rainbow fish As one small boy goes running proudly to his mother’s call

The stonebuilt farmhouse is a rough stone cottage Hiding close against the hillside up a winding track The stonebuilt farmhouse has a fair-haired farmer Wearing wooden shoes and building up a new haystack Run in the door stand on the stone floor The oven opens- there’s the biggest loaf you ever saw And the stonebuilt farmhouse gives a good warm welcome As he sits down in his own chair with a Windsor back

The magpie meadow is a glowing evening colour Sun is setting quietly and the boy is tired The magpie meadow has a sparrow hawk who hovers Hanging on the wind preying eagle eyed Sit by the lantern watch as the years turn Slowly bringing truth for every child to learn And the magpie meadow darkens gently blue now As the family sit their faces lit by ember firePainting by Jenny Richardson 1972

Trawlerman's Song (words Robert Lewis/ music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

I love coming home from far across the sea I pick my little wee wifey up and set her on my knee See how my eldest boy has grown whilst I’ve been away See here’s a boat I’ve whittled for thee, especially for thee I’ve thought of you everyday

I love coming home from far across the sea And taking up my walking cane and passing through the trees. I wander on the hillside, the doggie at my heel, The bracken waves a welcome to me ‘where have you been we’ve missed you a great deal'

I love coming home from far across the sea I pick my little wee wifey up and set her on my knee

Drawing by John James 1968

Iris’s Song For Us words Iris Macfarlane/music Wally Dix (version 2- music Vashti Bunyan) (c) Warlock Music Ltd/MCPS

I climbed the peaks of glass with you And walked a world of brass with you And gladly left the glaring streets To share a bed of grass with you

You made the elder burn for me And cut the bird filled thorn for me And through the ripening summer days You bade the white road turn for me

Lock up the lark love And pin back the sky We need a space in which to work And sing and die

I rode the dark green deep with you And drove our dreams like sheep with you And now my love please let me cross Brown boundaries of sleep with youDrawing by Robert Lewis 1986

Jog Along Bess (Vashti Bunyan(c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Jog along Bess hop along May Squeak along Blue it’s a walk along day It’s a long road and weary are we Bubble on kettle and make us all some tea

Once there was a gypsy man Selling flowers from a baker’s van Bess she pulled him round the town Pulled her wagon all old and brown Till one day we took her away Painted her wagon bright and gay Now she finds she’s travelling North No more wandering back and forth

Once there was an Afghan hound Loved by no one and pushed around Tied up in a stable yard Tangled and timid and howling hard Till one day we took her away Called her Magog shortened to May She hurt a paw made it sore Now she runs on three legs instead of four

There lived a dog in London Town With one ear up and the other ear down The neighbours said he mustn’t bark The only grass he knew was in Hyde Park Till one day we took him away Now Blue bounces through fields of hay But he sits and squeals like a squeaky wheel When the wheels are rolling that’s how he feels

Little green wagon in a deep blue sky Wheels like dandelions passing by With a picture by Sam a painting by John And a bonnie black hoss to lead you along Lucky green wagon you were raggedy brown Now there is red at the hem of your gown We brought you a pumpkin brought you a mouse We wished very hard and you gave us a house

Jog along Bess hop along May Squeak along Blue it’s a walk along day It’s a long road and weary are we Bubble on kettle and make us all some teaPainting by Lizzie McDougall 1995

They thought and they thought about having Black Bess Timothy planted some mustard and cress They lived in a cupboard and made it their home And lay there and dreamed of the days when they’d roam Up and down all the hills of the North countryside With the dogs eating buttercups on the wayside And they’d wave all the cities ‘goodbye’

Where I Like To Stand (words John James/music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

The hound bays the sheep graze I’m counting the boats in the bay As they float they seem to say-‘I’m counting the waves, I’m counting the waves’ The men in the boats they wave to their wives and say ‘I’m counting the hours, counting the hours, counting the hours in the day’

I’m counting the gulls that sit on the waves Surrounding the boats in the bay I’m counting the miles till we’re there Where the sun and the rain and the snow Fall on the seeds and make them grow Fall on the rocks and make them crack into pebbles and into sand Which is where I like to stand

Lily Pond (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

In a lily pond I lay all upon a summer’s day Then I chased a dragonfly all across an ancient sky Falling with a thousand stars down the Milky Way to Mars Back again in time for day In a lily pond I lay

And the only thing he said to me Was- ‘young lady I love thee’

Swallow Song (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

And there’s a sunset brimming over the sky And there’s a swallow teaching it’s young how to fly Up on high See how fast the summer passes by

And there’s an oak leaf turning green into brown And there’s a pine so proud of her evergreen gown Looking down See how fast the winter comes around

And there’s a rain cloud passing over our heads And there’s a cat on the doorstep waiting to be fed Milk and bread Day is done and now it’s time for bedPainting by Jenny Richardson 1973

Window Over The Bay (words Robert Lewis/music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

I wish I had a window over the bay And a black horse grazing on the green all day I wish I had a well to draw my water from And a warm log fire for when the summer is gone

I wish I had a window over the bay And a flock of white sheep to watch from where I lay I wish I had a little boat bobbing on the deep And a big wooden table all laid out for tea

I wish I had a window over the bay And a dreamy eyed cow to fill my milking pail I wish I had a cockerel to raise me at dawn And a little bed to sleep in when the curtains are drawn

Rose Hip November (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Rose hip November - autumn I’ll remember Gold landing at our door, catch one leaf and fortune will surround you evermore

Pine tree very tall, waiting for snow to fall Mist hangs very still, caught by dawn in castle moats around the sleeping hill

Now a pipe is heard happy is the shepherd shepherdess and dog, father of the pastureland and mother of the flock

Rosehip November - autumn I’ll remember Gold landing at our door, catch one Leif and fortune will surround you Evermore evermore evermore

Hebridean Sun (words Robert Lewis/music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Travelling towards a Hebridean sun To build a white tower in our heads begun

The grass knows, the hills know, we all know Spring has come, the good fountain flows.

Each hoof fall brings us nearer the land Of peat and seabirds and silver sand.

The grass knows, the hills know, we all know Spring has come, the good fountain flows.

Come wind Come rain (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Come wind come rain we’re off again, Our muddy boots plod down the lane The snow has snowed now the grass has growed And it’s time that we were on the road.

Hey ho the wind and the rain The passers by wave their arms and grin

Come wind come rain we’re off again Our muddy boots plod down the lane The mare is shod the miles untrod Between us and the 'land of god'..

We’re on our way and everyday Is another ten miles and an armful of hay Hey ho the wind and the rain Another ten miles and a bucket of grain.

Rainbow River (Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

The rainbow river is a laughing stream Down in a valley by a mountain that is pine tree tall The rainbow river has a small boy fishing with a worm And a jam jar by the waterfall Don’t make a sound don’t disturb the ground The biggest fish you ever saw is around And the rainbow river gives a rainbow fish As one small boy goes running proudly to his mother’s call

The stonebuilt farmhouse is a rough stone cottage Hiding close against the hillside up a winding track The stonebuilt farmhouse has a fair-haired farmer Wearing wooden shoes and building up a new haystack Run in the door stand on the stone floor The oven opens- there’s the biggest loaf you ever saw And the stonebuilt farmhouse gives a good warm welcome As he sits down in his own chair with a Windsor back

The magpie meadow is a glowing evening colour Sun is setting quietly and the boy is tired The magpie meadow has a sparrow hawk who hovers Hanging on the wind preying eagle eyed Sit by the lantern watch as the years turn Slowly bringing truth for every child to learn And the magpie meadow darkens gently blue now As the family sit their faces lit by ember firePainting by Jenny Richardson 1972

Trawlerman's Song (words Robert Lewis/ music Vashti Bunyan (c) Warlock Music Ltd)

I love coming home from far across the sea I pick my little wee wifey up and set her on my knee See how my eldest boy has grown whilst I’ve been away See here’s a boat I’ve whittled for thee, especially for thee I’ve thought of you everyday

I love coming home from far across the sea And taking up my walking cane and passing through the trees. I wander on the hillside, the doggie at my heel, The bracken waves a welcome to me ‘where have you been we’ve missed you a great deal'

I love coming home from far across the sea I pick my little wee wifey up and set her on my knee

Iris’s Song For Us words Iris Macfarlane/music Wally Dix (version 2- music Vashti Bunyan) (c) Warlock Music Ltd/MCPS

I climbed the peaks of glass with you And walked a world of brass with you And gladly left the glaring streets To share a bed of grass with you

You made the elder burn for me And cut the bird filled thorn for me And through the ripening summer days You bade the white road turn for me

Lock up the lark love And pin back the sky We need a space in which to work And sing and die

I rode the dark green deep with you And drove our dreams like sheep with you And now my love please let me cross Brown boundaries of sleep with youDrawing by Robert Lewis 1986

Jog Along Bess (Vashti Bunyan(c) Warlock Music Ltd)

Jog along Bess hop along May Squeak along Blue it’s a walk along day It’s a long road and weary are we Bubble on kettle and make us all some tea

Once there was a gypsy man Selling flowers from a baker’s van Bess she pulled him round the town Pulled her wagon all old and brown Till one day we took her away Painted her wagon bright and gay Now she finds she’s travelling North No more wandering back and forth

Once there was an Afghan hound Loved by no one and pushed around Tied up in a stable yard Tangled and timid and howling hard Till one day we took her away Called her Magog shortened to May She hurt a paw made it sore Now she runs on three legs instead of four

There lived a dog in London Town With one ear up and the other ear down The neighbours said he mustn’t bark The only grass he knew was in Hyde Park Till one day we took him away Now Blue bounces through fields of hay But he sits and squeals like a squeaky wheel When the wheels are rolling that’s how he feels

Little green wagon in a deep blue sky Wheels like dandelions passing by With a picture by Sam a painting by John And a bonnie black hoss to lead you along Lucky green wagon you were raggedy brown Now there is red at the hem of your gown We brought you a pumpkin brought you a mouse We wished very hard and you gave us a house

Jog along Bess hop along May Squeak along Blue it’s a walk along day It’s a long road and weary are we Bubble on kettle and make us all some teaPainting by Lizzie McDougall 1995
