The Ballad of Morgan the Moon

A song/poem about an old man from the Rhondda who became the first man to land on the moon!

(F) Old Moc the Mechanic, (F) I remember him (F) well
(F) He once built a (F) rocket, (F) or so they will (G) tell…
(F) From and old winding engine that (F) he found on the (F) dole
(F) It was built in the (F) Rhondda (G) and powered by (F) coal.

Chorus:
Sing (F) Falderal (F) Dalderal (F) Day

Old Moc the Mechanic, I remember him well
He once built a rocket, or so they will tell…
From and old winding engine he found on the dole
It was built in the Rhondda and powered by coal. 

Chorus

And when it was finished, he painted it red,
and he called it (pause) Bethania.. or so it is said.
And they took up a mountain on a night late in June
To get that bit closer, said Morgan the Moon.
 
Chorus

Sleepy Treorchy was bathed in white light
when the shuddering hulk, took off in the night.
A deafening scream and then a great roar as up passed the houses old Morgan did go!
His heatshield was glowing… like anthracite coal!
And we prayed down in Cardiff, in mission control.
(F) And the barrow wheels dropped
(F) As was previously (F) planned and (F) old Morgan prepared for (G) Bethania to (F) land.
 
Chorus

He landed like linen on a crusty old crater,
Dai said he’d get there lunar or later!
(F) So off Morgan went in the (F) moon swirling (F) dust
(F) To collect some rock (F) samples from a (G) crater’s hard (F) crust.

Chorus

A strange piece of rock soon old Morgan found,
It was lying there shining on the dust covered ground
He picked it up closely and he let out a call…
‘Cause written right through it in Welsh was Porthcawl!

Chorus
