Romieufgup

We walk through the countries,
Starting from Le Puy,
To where the sun grows sleepy,
Down by the sea.
We walk together, and we walk alone.
Look into the mirror, deep into the soul.

And you turn around and wear another smile,
My mind goes and walks another mile,
We all meet, help each other’s trial,
We are all alone,
We are not alone.

See the clothes I’m wearing
That shut out the light.
One by one they crumble
As they give up the fight.

And you turn around and wear another smile,
My mind goes and walks another mile,
We all meet, help each other’s trial,
We are all alone,
We are not alone.

I can feel Santiago,
I can hear the sea,
But it is here on the journey,
That we learn we’re free,
We know we are free
We know we are free

Here I stand with staff and pack
I’m going there and coming back
Here I stand with staff and pack
I’m going there and coming back
We know we are free
We know we are free
We know we are free
We know we are free

Celiafgup

Her father, a soldier man,
Always the boss,
Told her to knuckle down,
Your life was a loss.
“You’re no good, bow down to me”,
He would tell her so,
She lived a life above the line,
But was often low.

Celia,
Don’t let him keep you down,
Celia,
You can wear that diamond crown,
Celia,
You are a star,
Live your life and be,
Who you truly are.

She married a man,
Who had to control,
Loved the kids but lived a life,
Far from her soul,
One day she came home to,
No-one there,
He had took the girls and left her,
Alone in despair.

Celia,
Don’t let him keep you down,
Celia,
You can wear that diamond crown,
Celia,
You are a star,
Live your life and be,
Who you truly are.

Don’t let go,
Don’t let go.

I saw Celia the other day,
As she was walking by,
Flicks of grey in her hair,
And a bruise below her eye.
She told me she loved him so,
And she was doing fine,
But I could tell that she was,
Holed below the line.

Celia,
Don’t let him keep you down,
Celia,
You can wear that diamond crown,
Celia,
You are a star,
Live your life and be,
Who you truly are.

Don’t let go,
Don’t let go,
Don’t let go,
Don’t let go.

Celia,
Don’t let him keep you down,
Celia,
You can wear that diamond crown,
Celia,
You are a star,
Live your life and be,
Who you truly are.

Togetherfgup

Walking through the hills of France,
With doubts circling in my head,
The oughtas and should have dones,
Stop me sleeping in my bed.
Then by the waterside we posed,
And felt all alive,
Walking to the setting sun,
Free to look at all and one.

I’m not going to worry about the oughta,
Looking down here at the water,
Together we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow,
Together, we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow.

Thought the journey would be inside,
Quietness would make me wise,
And all that I did learn,
Took me quite by surprise,
But, then in deeper Spain,
I realised there was more to gain,
The friendships and the love,
To know below is above.

I’m not going to worry about the oughta,
Looking down here at the water,
Together we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow,
Together, we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow.

On the way we can’t hide,
From those feelings deep inside,
Let the healing sow,
Let the healing flow,
Let the healing show,
Let the healing glow.

Together we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow,
Together, we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow.

On the way we can’t hide,
From those feelings deep inside,
Let the healing sow,
Let the healing flow,
Let the healing show,
Let the healing glow.

Together we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow,
Together, we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow.

Together we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow,
Together, we walk to the sea,
Feel the people grow.

Judasfgup

Judas,
I see you now,
Walking away with your head bowed,
Where are you friends,
Those you betrayed,
Can’t take their love,
To your lonely grave.

Gone are the days you adored,
With a man they abhorred,
With a group who felt called.
Judas, don’t you cry,
You saved them with your lie.

Judas,
What for your now,
Pack your bags, with the fatted cow,
You lost all you gained,
With a sleight of hand,
You must live alone,
From your chosen band.

Gone are the days you adored,
With a man they abhorred,
With a group who felt called.
Judas, don’t you cry,
You saved them with your lie.

They say he swung from a tree,
Couldn’t face his place in history,
But for the story to succeed,
He had to do the deed.

Judas,
I know you feel.
Judas,
You can heal.

Judas,
I know you feel.
Judas,
You can heal

The Dancefgup

Here I was,
There you were,
It’s no ordinary day,
Times so good,
Times so bad,
There’s no ordinary way.

We were close,
Then waltzed away,
There is no ordinary way,
Times were then,
Times are now,
Our feelings locked away.

See you, be you,
Hold and embrace you,
Stay now, be now,
But turn on your way now,
And go
And go.
Life is the dancer,
And we are the dance.

See you, be you,
Hold and embrace you,
Stay now, be now,
But turn on your way now,
And go
And go.

Life is the dancer,
And we are the dance.

Kernow Callingfgup

Out the port,
In the fishing boat,
Tossed around, by the swell,
We were all together in our stories,
Part of a family tale.

I’m going down to the sea,
I’m going to where the rivers they meet,
I’m going down to the sea.

Misty dawn, by the harbour wall,
With a love that never flowered,
A lone seal shares a stare with us there,
We are far from the crowd.

I’m going down to the sea,
I’m going to where the rivers they meet,
I’m going down to the sea.

Where we were close,
Before the past it closed,
Where the waves they heave.
And the future breathes.

With my girl where the witches fly,
And the light mysteriously glows,
Becalmed now as the tide it has run,
But maybe there is still gold.

I’m going down to the sea,
I’m going to where the rivers they meet,
I’m going down to the sea,
I’m going down to the sea,
I’m going to where the rivers they meet,
I’m going down to the sea,

On the way to Burgosfgup

On the way to Burgos,
Quite far from home,
Groups of pilgrims we are not alone,
On the Camino,
Many years ago marched,
Bands of comrades fighting Franco,
Per libertad, per libertad.

Catalans, Castillians, Galicians, and Basques,
Folks from all of Europe,
United in one task,
To fight the tide of fascists,
That flooded Europe’s land.
To be together in a socialist band,
Ils chantent, Libertad, libertad

They fought bravely, and many fell,
Still Spain fell under the Dictator’s spell,
But they sowed the seeds of a Spanish dream.
To live in freedom and democracy,
Ils chantent, libertad, libertad
Libertad, libertad.

Season Songfgup

Graham Hooper

Hazy in heat in July,
Watching the swifts sweep the sky,
Lives fleeting by.

See fruit dripping sweet on the trees,
Hear autumn’s sharp whisper on the breeze,
So must this be.

We dance in the summer, but soon comes the fall,
The swifts fleeing south heeding their call,
But through it all a dance goes on,
Will we skip along?

Treading dead leaves in old grass,
Spring green gone to rust, fell at last,
All things must pass,

But under the frosts and the grime,
The slumbering bulbs wait their time,
To rise and shine.

So build up the need-fire and gather around,
We keep our dance on the cold ground,
And at sunrise we wake to the sound,
Of the birds calling the dawn,

For a new world re-born.

Hear the old song, the dance goes on,
Hear the bird song, the dance goes on,
All round the year, the dance goes on,
The dance goes on.

571fgup

Day by day, we walk each day,
And the Ks they slip away,
Day by day, we talk each day,
And the Ks they slip away.

But the sign says 571,
I don’t want to know,
If it could be 571 to Santiago.

Day by day, we walk each day,
And the Ks they slip away,
Day by day, the landscapes change,
And the Ks they slip away.

But the sign says 571,
I don’t want to know,
If it could be 571 to Santiago.

Down here, by the river,
Where the feelings flow.
I know you’re gonna turn away,
I know you’re gonna turn away,
I know you’re gonna turn away,
I know you’re gonna turn away.

Day by day, we walk each day,
And the Ks they slip away,
Day by day, we enter another place,
And the Ks they slip away.

But the sign says 571,
I don’t want to know,
If it could be 571 to Santiago.

Down here, by the river,
Where the feelings flow.
I know you’re gonna turn away,
I know you’re gonna turn away,
I know you’re gonna turn away,
I know you’re gonna turn away.

The Stormfgup

In the winter breeze,
The storm it starts to breathe,
Swirling from behind,
Like a whispering mind.

And now it can speak,
A voice not so meek,
Boats dance in the bay,
Street lights start to sway.

I saw the news,
Fools lit the fuse,
Troops go off to fight,
For what cannot be right.

And the mind it screams,
As the walls come down,
Nothing much to see,
Of the crumbling town.

I’m by the sea,
There’s only me,
I turn to walk away,
There are more games to play.

I’m by the sea,
There’s only me.
