Greg Russell And Ciaran Algar - Rolling Down The Ryburn


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[INTRO:] C ~ Am    F

[VERSE 1:]
           Am                     F                 G               C
Now you've heard the songs that I love to sing, the tunes I like to play
           Am             F                     C             G
Well, it's some of them I wrote me self, others met along the way
            Am                      F    G            C
They're all friends to keep me company until my dying day
        Am               F             G   C
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[VERSE 2:]
        Am              F                 G                  C
And the stories in your newspapers, some (fair) and some are lies
         Am               F             C             G
For it's working folk who suffer as the businessman denies
            Am          F                 G             C
But through poverty and scandal, I have a will to stay alive
            Am               F             G   C
It keeps me rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[CHORUS:]
                                 Am              F            G
And there's a lot more songs I'd like to sing if only I could stay
      C              Am           F            G
But I must be headed homeward, perhaps another day
        Am               F            G                 C
For the road that I must travel lies across the Pennine Way
        Am               F             G   F      G
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[VERSE 3:]
         Am         F                        G             C
And I'll never be a wealthy man, though I've never courted fame
         Am            F            C               G
Soon too old to be the rising star, always miss the game
          Am             F         G            C
Or please maybe you'll remember my music and my name
        Am               F             G   C
As I go rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[VERSE 4:]
         Am                 F                   G            C
And I've travelled roads in Holland through the bitter wintertime
           Am                 F                    C               G
I've spent springtime days in Flanders, I've spent summer down the Rhine
         Am          F               G             C
But when autumn is approaching, it's then I have a mind
      Am               F             G   C
To go rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[CHORUS:]
                                 Am              F            G
And there's a lot more songs I'd like to sing if only I could stay
      C              Am           F            G
But I must be headed homeward, perhaps another day
        Am               F            G                 C
For the road that I must travel lies across the Pennine Way
        Am               F             G   F      G
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[VERSE 5:]
        Am                 F          G                 C
Now, of friends in far off places and times that I've enjoyed
          Am              F                  C         G
I've seen more than seven wonders, I've seen images destroyed
      Am                   F          G          C
For tonight you'll find me working, tomorrow unemployed
        Am               F             G   C
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[VERSE 6:]
        Am       F          G           C
Now I'm not sentimental, nostalgia I disdain
      Am                F                 C               G
Those good old days are with us, I am the first one to complain
             Am               F                   G                   C
There's no offence in looking backwards, it's the moral that keeps me sane
            Am               F             G   C
It keeps me rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[CHORUS:]
                                 Am              F            G
And there's a lot more songs I'd like to sing if only I could stay
      C              Am           F            G
But I must be headed homeward, perhaps another day
        Am               F            G                 C
For the road that I must travel lies across the Pennine Way
        Am               F             G   F      G
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[VERSE 7:]
         Am             F             G              C
Now it's miles upon the motorway, the dawn before me still
            Am               F                C              G
Through the sleepy towns and villages and the mists upon the hill
          Am               F                  G              C
There's reflections in the reservoir, there's shadows on the mill
        Am               F             G   C
As I go rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[VERSE 8:]
      Am               F               G                   C
And I hope my engine's faithful and my headlamps they burn bright
            Am       F                C                   G
For there's many a musician who never made it through the night
       Am                  F             G                 C
Oh, so spare a thought for travellers as you turn out your light
        Am               F             G   C
Keep us rolling down the Ryburn in the morning


[CHORUS:]
                                 Am              F            G
And there's a lot more songs I'd like to sing if only I could stay
      C              Am           F            G
But I must be headed homeward, perhaps another day
        Am               F            G                 C
For the road that I must travel lies across the Pennine Way
        Am               F 
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn
        Am               F 
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn
        Am               F             G   C
I'll be rolling down the Ryburn in the morning
