about

A song about London's River Fleet.

lyrics

When I feel that loneliness
I take a train down to Shoeburyness
I will leave what I possess
For your land of emptiness

From the marshland’s boggy chill
Further on down by the rill
Coming through a foggy swirl
I can hear my Essex girl

She’s calling me
From the land to the sea
From the town of East Tilbury
To the lady of Leigh
Oh Leigh I love you

Where the fresh and briny meet
Creek and gutway dyke and fleet
Saltmarsh and German Sea
Powerlines and industry

Little gull and merlin bird
Whistle wind and whisper word
Fly into your mystery
Sing your lowland history

And ferry me
Down the estuary
From

Fort and field and factory
And the oil refinery
Broken shell and tarnished pearl
Essex girl my Essex girl
