Does anybody know the words to BACK HOME by Bert Jansch? Thanks. John. Here are the bits I know already –

When you see the rolling hills across the border,
And the heather smells so sweetly in the air,
You know you just can't be anywhere,
You know you're home.

Thanks again.
John

"Back Home" by Bert Jansch, is on his album "When the Circus Comes to Town," Cooking Vinyl CD #92, 1995.

It is also on "Cooking Vinyl Sampler Vol. 6," 1997.

The best I could do was to transcribe a few lines from a sound sample at amazon.co.uk. This wasn't easy. His diction certainly leaves a lot to be desired, and therefore the following words are highly questionable. I recommend you listen to the sample and judge for yourself.

    ...I was born.
    Stand on my high street, lookin' down to the sea.
    I'll take a drink from a friendly corner alehouse
    A more pleasant place you could never wish to be.
    Oh, to hear the women settle a bargain
    I see music sing and dance play in your air
    I'd look back home
    When you see the road...

That wouldn't be the England World Cup song from 1970, would it, John?

LOL, Skipjack

Back home they'll be thinking about us
When we are far away
Back home they'll be really behind us
In every game we play
They'll share every goal we are scoring
Out there We will still hear them roaring
And we'll give all we've got to give
For the folks back home


Back home they'll be watching and waiting
And cheering every move
Back home though they think we're the greatest
That's what we've got to prove
Once more we will meet with the best
Like before we'll be put to the test
Oh we will give all we've got to give
For the folks back home


They'll see as they're watching and praying
That we put our hearts in our playing
We'll fight until the whistle goes
For the folks back home

Hi, I have an official lyrics printed at the back of the poster of 'When The Circus Comes To Town' which was available by request
just after the issue of the CD. It shows as follows;

Back Home

I got a wish, I got a a yearning to be home
I got a longing to be walking down the street
To see the chimmy-tops smoking on the skyline
Feel the cobble stones hard beneath my feet

If you could see the town where I was born
Stand on the High Street, you can look out to the sea
Or take a drink from a friendly corner ale-house
A more pleasant place you could never wish to be

Oh to hear the women sweetly talking
Ah sweet music singing gently in your ear
Ah to be back home

When you see the rolling hills 'cross the border
And the heather smells so sweetly in the air
You know that you can't be, (just) can't be anywhere
And you feel that magic shiver in your bones
You know you're home

I hope and pray, nothing's changed since I was there
Fond memories still linger in my mind
I know that town like a preacher knows his bible
And I got to thinking, I'm gonna leave this road behind



Really beautiful lyrics !

What an amazing news!

I think is impossible to find that poster now!
Dear guest, if it's possible, could you put on this forum some other lyrics of Bert Jansch?

Many, many thanks from a Bert's fan!

Bert was born in Glasgow, if I'm not wrong, but I don't know if Glasgow is "that" town.

Bert was born in Glasgow

Yes, he was but the family moved to Edinburgh when he was but a few months old. The smoking chimneys sound like Auld Reekie...

I tried to get this poster after buying When the Circus Comes To Town a couple of years after it came out but Bert had switched record companies by that time and no-one knew where they'd got to.

It would seem to refer to Edinburgh as you can stand on Carlton hill and see the town surrounded by sea to the north and east.
