I've got the guitar tab for this song down(more or less) but I can't make out the fourth verse, particularly the first few words. Its the verse following "just like a fly when its caught...". I've a bit of a problem with Bert's diction in a few of these songs. I'd requested the line about the beggars from "Woe is Love My Dear" but there were no takers. Maybe I'll be luckier this time,

Hoping,

John

Two versions of the guitar tab here here but as for the lyrics, your guess is as good as anybody's.

Runnin' runnin' from home
Breakin' ties that you'd grown
Catchin' dreams from the clouds

The city sounds burn your soul
Turn your head to the cries
Of loneliness in the night

Just like a fly when its caught
The spider soon takes its prey
Spins a dance round your heart

Give me your beauty and age
A pleasure pleasing my mind
Your heart will shatter and fall

Step on pavements so old
Cast a glance at the young girls
A-making their way

The passage image of you
Reflects a pain in my heart
And disappears in a crowd

John

I found the lyrics of "How your love is strong".
I hope are right...

OH HOW YOUR LOVE IS STRONG

Hey girl, oh how your love is strong
Weaves a tumble-in' tearless song
Tho' you don't seem to care that you love is blind.
You don't seem to care not realise.

Hey girl, oh how my heart is torn,
Hey girl, now that your baby's born,
What shall it cost? Is my freedom lost?
What is the price of nature's own way.

Hey girl, how could I dress your child,
When this life girl I'm livin' so wild?
Will your newborn child grow to be as wild?
And walk alone to meet his destiny?

Hey girl, see how I stand a man,
Hey girl, see I've no father's hand.
Would it be a crime to leave at such a time,
When you've many claims to make on me?

The passage image of you
Reflects a pain in my heart
And disappears in a crowd


That would be: the passing image of you . . .

when I heard him sing it in London several lifetimes ago.
