fairgrounds rover


Star Dancer

SultryRose's Signatures

its a hard road to travel with folks to meet on the way
its a horse in the stirrup and a look caste away
there moonlight a shining and there's stars all aglow
with the rumbling wheels of their wagons on the Romany roads

so I'm off on the highway by the heather and dales
where the sun it comes up and the music is swell
there's dogs here a barking and boys at the fair
with gals to surprise you with flowers in their hair

oh the fairground wheels a spinning and the darts are in flight
with the roulette wheels churning by day and by night
the booths are all open and the rides are all free
on the first day at Blackpool down by the sea

the tellers of fortune have drawn all the pack
with their eyes on the client and the son in the sack
the night draws the seekers of wisdom and sights
with the songs of the crooners and the lights oh so bright

the music is awesome and the melodies spin
like the dreamers of old when the harvest begins
the accordion plays a sweet melody like the Parisian nights
with their words lost at sea

the gypsy rides in with his lingo and tan
like a thief in the night with his whispering band
the highways and bye ways have cursed the lament
whilst history has lost all its sacredness spent

the roads they had traveled and the sights they had seen
like a lost generation without their may queen
for its take to the hills and get off the land
only their footprints have left now of this regal band
