Fairport Convention

It All Comes Round Again

What We Did On Our Holidays 1969

Over the years that the annual Fairport Convention festival at Cropredy has built up a stronger communal spirit than any comparable event. For newcomer and old hand alike, being there engenders a sense of belonging, of tradition, of ritual. It was on Fairport's second album, What We Did On Our Holidays, that this anthemic and ultimately hopeful song first appeared. It has inspired ever since then

 Meet On The Ledge
(Richard Thompson)

 We used to say that come the day
We'd all be making songs
Or finding better words
These ideas never lasted long

The way is up along the road
The air is growing thin
Too many friends who tried
Blown off this mountain with the wind

Meet on the ledge, we're gonna meet on the ledge
When my time is up I'm gonna see all my friends
Meet on the ledge, we're gonna meet on the ledge
If you really mean it, it all comes round again

And now I see I'm all alone
But that's the only way to be
You'll have your chance again
Then you can do the work for me.

Meet on the ledge, we're gonna meet on the ledge
When my time is up I'm gonna see all my friends
Meet on the ledge, we're gonna meet on the ledge
If you really mean it, it all comes round again.

Meet on the ledge, we're gonna meet on the ledge
When my time is up I'm gonna see all my friends
Meet on the ledge, we're gonna meet on the ledge
If you really mean it, it all comes round again...
