Poor Cow

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


I dwell in the north in the green country
Faramir, Faramir
And I take to my rest at the end of day
Whilst o'erhead pretty stars do play

And then I dream along
Then I make a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt
Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day
The rain has gone away

Watching the children sing and play
In the garden and the roadway
Up comes a little one singing a song
About a friend she knows called Rosie
Off to the greenwood you must go
Bring a-me one fine posie
All of a sudden I'm light as air
I feel sad as a butterfly

Oh, I dwell with my pride and my songs and things
Wearily, oh, so wearily
And I dream of the girl with the sunshine eye
Sandy Lee, wherever she may be

And then I dream along
Then I make a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt
Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day
The rain has gone away

Watching the children sing and play
In the garden and the roadway
Up comes a little one singing a song
About a friend she knows called Rosie
Off to the greenwood you must go
Bring a-me one fine posie
All of a sudden I'm light as air
I feel sad as a butterfly

Oh, I dwell in the north in the green country
Faramir, Faramir
And I dream of the girl with the sunshine eye
Sandy Lee, wherever she may be

And then I dream along
And then I make a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt

Poor Cow (Donovan In Concert Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


[Introducing Poor Cow, only at the begining of this track in the 1968 original album version, for the 2006 expanded version it's at the end of There Is A Mountain]:

This next song is called Poor Love.

Oh, I dwell in the north in the green country
Faramir, Faramir
And I dwell with my pride and my songs and things
Wearily, wearily
And I dream of the girl with the sunshine eye
Sandy Lee, Sandy Lee
And I take to my rest at the end of day
Whilst o'erhead pretty stars do play

And then I dream along
Then I make a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt
Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day
The rain has gone away

Watching the children sing and play
In the garden and the roadway
Up comes a little one singing a song
About a friend she knows called Rosie
Off to the greenwood you must go
To bring a-me one fine posie
All of a sudden I'm light as air
I feel sad as a butterfly

Oh, I dwell in the north in the green country
Faramir, Faramir
And I dream of the girl with the sunshine eye
Sandy Lee, wherever she may be

And then I dream along
Then I make a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt
Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day
The rain has gone away

Watching the children sing and play
In the garden and the roadway
Up comes a little one singin' a song
About a friend she knows called Rosie
Off to the green wood you must go
Bring a-me one fine posie
All of a sudden I'm light as air
I feel sad as a butterfly

Oh, I dwell in the north in a green country
Far from here, wearily
And I take to my rest at the end of day
Whilst o'erhead pretty stars do play

And then I dream along
Then I make a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt

[Only in the 2006 expanded version]: Thank you

Poor Cow (Film Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


Oh I dwell in the town in the grey country
Wearily, wearily
And I live with my pride and my babe and things
Wearily, wearily
And I take to my rest at the end of day
Whilst o'erhead stars do play

And then I dream along
And then I hear a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt
Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day
The rain has gone away

Watching the children sing and play
In the garden and the roadway
Up comes a little one singing a song
About a friend she knows called Rosie
Off to the wasteground you must go
Bring me one fine posie
All of a sudden I'm light as air
I feel sad as a butterfly

Oh I dwell in the town in the grey country
Wearily, wearily
And I take to my rest at the end of day
Whilst o'erhead stars do play
And I live with my pride and my kid and things
Wearily, wearily

And then I dream along
Then I hear a song
About everything that I've known and felt
And it makes my sadness melt
Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day
The rain has gone away

Watching the children sing and play
In the garden and the roadway
Up comes a little one singing a song
About a friend she knows called Rosie
Off to the greenwood you must go
Bring me one fine posie
All of a sudden I'm light as air
I feel sad as a butterfly
