Endless Plain of Fortune

Verse 1

Old Taylor said
Old Taylor meant to cry, oh my
Field marshal meant
Field marshal went away again

Chorus

Look out below, the tides
Lean heavily like wine
We are all innocent in spite of you
And me

Verse 2

Then Martha went
Yes, Martha went away again
Down in Transvaal
Where crocodiles and men fight on

Chorus

They would have played all night
Even with loaded dice
It's gold that eats the heart and leaves the bones
To dry

Instrumental

Verse 3

Segovia watched
Gendarmerie and all, that's all
The radio man
Amanda, did you choose your tune?

Chorus

She walked away in time
She walked a crooked line
So gracefully she turned her head and smiled
Away
