Artist : Greg Russell
Song : Rolling Down the Ryburn

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
