ERROL FLYNN (Gordon Hunt / Amanda McBroom) Amanda McBroom - 1994 Christine Lavin - 1997 Also recorded by : David Campbell; Barbara Cook. In a hall, on a wall, in a house in Rosita A poster's held up by two nails and a pin It's her Daddy, the actor, 'bout to die with his boots on He's the man standing up there, beside Errol Flynn He got third or fourth billing at the end of each picture "And that don't mean much", he would say with a grin But he'd hold her hand tight as he pointed his name out Only four or five names down below Errol Flynn Fame, it is fleeting and stars, they keep falling And staying right up there, that's the business of art And luck kisses some and she passes by others Disappointment and bourbon are hard on the heart Oh, the women and beers, and the years with old Errol They took their toll, they took her from his side And he kissed her goodbye at the old Union Station It's the last time she saw him, the last time she cried Now she's sitting alone in that house in Rosita Watchin' the Late Show as the moonlight shines in And up on the screen, yippee, here comes her Daddy It's a sad, funny feeling, now she's older than him Oh, you daddies and daughters, you sons and your mothers Remember life's over before it begins Love one another and stand close together As close as her Dad stood to old Errol Flynn Fame, it is fleeting, and stars, they keep falling And staying right up there, that's the business of art And luck kisses some and she passes by others Disappointment and bourbon are hard on the heart Oh, you daddies and daughters, you sons and your mothers Life seems to be over before it begins Love one another and stand close together As close as her Dad stood to old Errol Flynn (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2005)
