The Tinker And The Crab

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


On the windy beach
The sun is shining through with weather fair
White horses riding
On the sea pasture onto the sand

Over the Dunes
Came a travelling man
Sack on back
Wild flowers in his hand

Old rusty cans
Pebbles 'bedded in the sand stand and stare
Scratching his beard
Through the grass he steered his sandy shoe
Disappearing in the dips
Pondering and wandering along

Nice as you please
Comes the travelling man
Drinking a bottle
Of milk in his hand

Speaking to no one
In particular but happily
Down where young gulls dance
Driftwood lying, drying for the fire
Yellow beak and sleek
Now the gulls are crying, flying higher

Out from the sea
Came a little green crab
Taking the sun
The morning being very drab

Old rusty cans
Pebbles 'bedded in the sand stand and stare

The tinker and the crab
The tinker and the crab
The tinker and the crab

The Tinker And The Crab (Donovan In Concert: The Complete 1967 Anaheim Show Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


On the windy beach
The sun is shining through with weather fair
White horses riding
On the sea pasture onto the sand

Over the Dunes
Came a travelling man
Sack on back
Wild flowers in his hand

Old rusty cans
Pebbles 'bedded in the sand stand and stare
Scratching his beard
Through the grass he steered his sandy shoe
Disappearing in the dips
Pondering and wandering along

Over the Dunes
Came a travelling man
Drinking a bottle
Of milk in his hand

Speaking to no one
In particular but happily
Down where the gulls dance
Driftwood lying, drying for the fire
Yellow beak and sleek
Now the gulls are crying, flying higher

Out from the sea
Came a little green crab
Taking the sun
The morning being very drab

Old rusty cans
Pebbles 'bedded in the sand stand and stare

The tinker and the crab
The tinker and the crab
The tinker and the crab

[Introducing Rules And Regulations, only at the end of this track in the 2006 expanded version. In the 1968 original album version it's at the begining of Rules And Regulations]:

Thank you. This next song... uhm... is called Rules And Regulations. And this... I'm sure everyone will identify with this one.
