I have no clue about this song except that I'm sure it's Jansch, and I got these lyrics from listening to the song...if anyone knows the title I would be so happy--this is a beautiful song!

A troubled wind has chilled my heart
Killed our love right from the start
And visions of your face
Twist my mind into knots of silken lace

A chance to win a hand so fair
Fades with night and a single prayer
Then a straw hat on your head
Brings morning dreams to a light upon my bed (?)

If dead men swam the waters deep
Then fish would cry all in their sleep
My love I can only try
To lift my head from the depths as you walk by

Now banjos ring and fiddles play
A candle burns to light my way
And turning in my sleep
I dream again of your love, your love to keep

Bert's original version is to be found on his amazing first album (1965 ). It would be difficult for a young person today to imagine how marvelously fresh and exciting that album sounded when it was first released. Unfortunately, Bert never did anything as good. Although, have been many "magic moments" down the years.
