I just introduced my US partner to that marvellous duo and she wants to learn the words. Thanks Mick, I didn't expect such a Love Is Come Again - Graham & Eileen Pratt - Clear Air Of The Day response! Tonight I'll sleep Between your sheets, All soft and white, All through the The Golden Gate Quartet - Sings Great Spirituals. O tonight I'll rest On your love's breast, All soft and warm In your man's arms.
Then you'll be found All lying drowned. And my breast milk Lost in the silt. O woman there Beside the shore Reach out your hand Pull me to land.
It gives an unusual account of the eternal triangle. A drowning woman begs assistance of her jealous rival, only to discover that her pleas are wilfully ignored. Eileen added to the traditional words and Graham wrote the music. We're very grateful for this. BTW do you know if any of the others are available online, our Google searches seem to suggest not?
Thanks again Chris and Tamara. It omits the decoration mainly on the ho-lay and some tune changes in the Emanuelle In America Sweet - Nico Fidenco - Emanuelle In America verses for tune fitting.
I am sure some of their trad repertoire will be out there, but wondered if there is anywhere which has the lyrics of their early albums "To Friend and Foe" and "The Clear Air of the Day" both of which since divorce I have only as taped copies.
Chris P. Thanks for the tune too, I'll pass it on. There are a few sites devoted to Graham and Eileen, but not their lyrics that I know of.
