A Lasting Spirit: The Collection album at
Fairport Convention's, "Rocky Road"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I've met with poor men who were kings and rich men who were slaves
And I've knelt beneath the spires
Why They're Inappropriate:
The song kicks along nicely with Simon Nicol and Chris Leslie singing the opening two verses. Dave Pegg, the Fairport basist, then takes over for the final verse and for some reason this non -sensical mixed up lyric appears with Pegg struggling to pronounce the final word 'spires' in rhythm with the rest of the song and it isn't just because he is an awful vocalist either!!
