nottamun town lyrics – fairport convention

in nottamun town, not a soul would look up
not a soul would look up
not a soul would look down
not a soul would look up
not a soul would look down
to show me the way to fair nottamun town
when the king and the queen and the company mourn
come a-walking behind
and riding before
come a stark naked drummer
a-beating the drum
with his hands on his bosom come marching along
sat down on a hard, hard cold frozen stone
ten thousand around me
yet i was alone
took my hat in my hands
for to keep my head warm
ten thousand got drownded that never was born
in nottamun town, not a soul would look up
not a soul would look up
not a soul would look down
not a soul would look up
not a soul would look down
to show me the way to fair nottamun town
