BARGES (Ralph McTell Ralph McTell - 1972 Me and my brother returned to the water I saw a pike that was two feet long Two small magicians, each with a jam jar Cast spells on the water with hazel twig wands And the country boys catch tadpoles, dive into water Made shy by their laughter, we wandered downstream And summer rolled over us with no complications 'Cept thinkin' of Mama sometimes in dreams We'd stand by the drawbridge, waiting for barges Waiting around for smiles from the men Lifting the bridge whilst watching the horses Dragging the slow boats up the canal And I do remember the times, but no number After the day, but before evening comes Waiting for castles and kettles with roses Painted on barges that sailed into the sun Oh, see the river run, that was by man begun Open the locks and let the boats sail on, Takin' their castles and kettles with roses With summers of childhood leaving smiles on the man (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2010)
