    Default Lord Elgin Lyrics

    I realize this is way off the subject of this forum but I came across mention of a song by the name of "Lord Elgin" which was recorded by the British folk group "Steeleye Span" in their "Bloody Men" album. Supposedly the song appears to be a love ballad but is supposed to refer to watches. I tried looking for the lryics but couldn't find them. Does anyone know of the song and lyrics?

    Regards,
    Bruce

    I tried with all the power of Google to find lyrics to the song a while back, without success.

    No lyrics to be had on the internet, but iTunes Store sells the album, and you can listen to a 1 1/2 min. sample of the song. This is what I heard-definitely about a watch:

    Every day of your life, you'll touch me
    Every day of your life, you'll watch me
    But I'll be with you each and every morning
    To the end of the day

    Take a [look at all] my diamonds and gold
    I will show you the way hour by hour
    Just give me somebody's hand I can hold
    I will follow the day hour by hour
    Every second of every minute of every hour of every day
    Lord Elgin will save the day (English pronunciation, hard 'G')

    Never spoken one word, to you
    Never heard a word back, from you
    Gave you all my time without a reason
    Another hour for a changing season
    Take a look at my face, believe me
    At the end of the day, you'll leave me
    But I'll be with you each and every morning
    Till the end of the day

    Sounds like a nice song, and I like Maddy Prior & Steeleye Span; now I've got to check out the rest of the album.

    Thanks Curtis, I didn't think to look on Youtube.

    That is too cool! I never heard a song about a watch before, maybe it should be made the NAWCC theme song!
