The Far Side of the Fray

Dada Paradox
Ian M Roure


Here's a health to Sir Tyler...Wat Tyler & the 1381 Peasants' Rebelion...

Ian: acoustic guitar, lead & harmony vocals, bass, mandolin (overdubbed twice)

Liza: melodica


All the banners have fallen & all swept away

Like the flags & the standards we hoped would hold sway

The cause seems so lost at the end of the day

Looking back from the Far Side of the Fray


Now it's back to the manor and knowing your place

Though we tried to win change the unjust won the day

Down under the feet of the rich we remain

Going on from the Far Side of the Fray


Here's a health to Sir Tyler and all he would save

If not in our time there will come a day

If the cause is worth winning some will find try again

And find a way on the Far Side of the Fray
