Oh D'you see that Table in the corner Scarred and weather worn? I’ve heard a hundred stories A thousand times or more It was the first thing that the landlord Brought from his own home But how he came to own it No-one seems to know No-one seems to know. Oh D'you see that Table in the corner, the one where no-one sits? We've all heard the stories, and it’s not quite worth the risk For they say that it was cursed once, many year ago But no harm will befall you, if you leave it well alone Leave it well alone. And it’s always been 'round here And it’s always been, revered And it’s not like it’s a test And it matter even less, but I’d like to know From where about it came. Oh D'you see that Table in the corner, where it’s always been? And bear in mind this warning It’s not quite what it seems It was the thing that brought the landlord, fortune, flair and fame And now he understands it, there it will remain There it will remain. And it’s always been 'round here And it’s always been, revered And it’s not like it’s a test And it matter even less, but I’d like to know From where about it came. And it’s always been 'round here And it’s always been, revered And it’s not like it’s a test And it matter even less, but I’d like to know From where about it came.

Well, I know you've heard my name Whispered in the streets And if you listen to the stories I’m the worst man you could meet. You'll have heard about the time That I broke out from the jail Killed the guards, climbed the walls Escaped the town by rail. And they'll have told you of my wife, how I Stole her from her home Sold the family diamonds then Kicked her to the road. Liars, liars, liars Liars, liars, liars Liars, liars, liars As far as I can see. So now you know my name What think you of that? Those stories filled with nonsense Make me sound like quite the catch. But that time I fled the jail Though it makes me sound a bore The guard had fallen drunk asleep His keys next to the door. And the one they called my wife That I swindled fair and fine Was a working girl from London and I paid her for her time.

He used to tell us stories, when we were young The childhood games he played, and his time at school And his school is sounded dreadful And his teachers sounded awful And the violence then was shameful, in those days. So then he joined the army, and he learnt to shoot a gun The 'Enfield' he was given, held ten rounds He-said-they-had to lie, upon their backs And shoot at passing planes And try to bring them down from half a mile away And, Sam did run As fast as he could run The bullets clipped his heels, but still he ran. The day he met his bride, he knew she was the one Swore that he would keep her by his side Then he went to Palestine and left her on her own Never meant to break that promise made And his General was a madman The Lieutenant just a farm-hand So a Sergeants job was not a happy one And, Sam did run As fast as he could run The bullets clipped his heels, but still he ran

I used to write you songs But I haven’t done for years I used to write you letters To tell you what I thought, of being here Feel older now And the nights are cold, without you around. Being older now I can see the reasons That you’ve gone to ground. And now you've gone to ground Where you will never be found And now you've gone to ground Where you will never be found …but at least I know with you I'm safe and sound. But it’s strange what you remember, The memories and thoughts of where you are from But it’s nearly mid-November And all the friends I’ve had are dead and gone. I feel older now And the nights are cold, without you around Being older now I can see the reasons That you’ve gone to ground. And now you've gone to ground Where you will never be found And now you've gone to ground Where you will never be found And now you've gone to ground Where you will never be found And now you've gone to ground Where you will never be found
