Tuesday Tune: Lady D’Arbanville

Today’s Tuesday Tune is one of Rugby Man’s favourites.

He introduced me to Cat Stevens (aka Ysuf Islam) or is it the other way around… I always get confused with it… anyways, he introduced me to the music when I was about 18. This isn’t the first time I have mentioned it, but Rugby Man had a big influence on my different tastes in music. I have a few favourites, but when I hear this song, I still remember the first time Rugby Man played it for me. The way he played the imaginary guitar. How I had to listen to the words. How he sang with.

It is a good memory and I thought I would share it as my Tuesday Tune.

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Lady D’Arbanville
Cat Stevens

My Lady d’Arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
I’ll wake you tomorrow
and you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

My Lady d’Arbanville why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent.
Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

My Lady d’Arbanville why do you sleep so still?
I’ll wake you tomorrow
and you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

My Lady d’Arbanville, you look so cold tonight.
Your lips feel like winter,
your skin has turned to white, your skin has turned to white.

My Lady d’Arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
I’ll wake you tomorrow
and you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

La la la la la….

My Lady d’Arbanville why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent.
Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

I loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
I’ll always be with you
This rose will never die, this rose will never die.

I loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
I’ll always be with you
This rose will never die, this rose will never die.
