Thread Name: Lyr Req: She Touched You (Jim Herd/The Fureys)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Forgotten Fureys Song
Hi, thanks for replies but not the one I was thinking of... it was very early fureys when they used to do some songs by singer/songwriters on the circuit.
I think the opening verse went something along the lines of:
'You've sung your song as best you can there's no more you can do..
then basically he falls for girl in folk club audience, seems a bit of a hippy, hence the refrain - 'you don't even like the colour of her hair (something)... or the crazy clothes she wears.' Finally he is reconsidering after some post folk-club lovemaking that 'maybe you'll grow to like the colour of her hair... and those crazy clothes she wears'
My memory may be a bit hazy it is a long time ago. Got a feeling it was George Furey that sang it.
Thanks for help
