for Anon G, who likes wild geese

Did you ever see the wild goose sailing on the ocean
Ranzo my boys, oh Ranzo Ray
They're just like them pretty girls when they get the notion
Ranzo my boys, oh Ranzo Ray

Ranzo you'll rue the day
As the wild goose sails away
As I was walking one evening by the river
Ranzo my boys, oh Ranzo Ray
I met with a pretty girl my heart it was a quiver
Ranzo my boys, oh Ranzo Ray

I said how are you doing this morning
Ranzo my boys ,oh Ranzo Ray
She said none the better for the seeing of you
Ranzo my boys, oh Ranzo Ray

You broke my heart, oh you broke it full sore o'
Ranzo my boys, oh Ranzo Ray
If I sail like the wild goose
You'll break it no more o'
Ranzo my boys, oh Ranzo Ray
.

I was listening to this in the car this morning. Sadly I had to return the CD to its owner along with her daughter!

*happily humming*

Sooo, I gave it a listen.

sigh

I'd never heard her, or even heard OF her.

Kate Rusby. She is so lovely....

sigh

I, like the view, still said...

anon I had never heard of her either, until mel suggested her the other day, when my head was empty from the ECT. . .

I haven't yet actually listened to her yet (uTube being a bit difficult in my current environment) but when you said about liking the wild geese from tSoM I thought I'd take a look at some Rusby lyrics - and lo and behold! there were some about geese

it was obviously meant to me, especially if mig was listening to the very same song in her car

:-)

mel what could be better? sun tea, a sparkly straw, a little R&R after your busy stressful week and some great music. . . I'm glad for you, dearheart
