"Winter is Gone" as written by and John William Mark Renbourn....
Winter is gone
And the leaves are green
Winter is gone
And the leaves turn green
Your innocent face
I wish I never had seen**

Come on, my love
And fare thee well
Come on, my love
And fare thee well
You cheated me
But I wish you well

Rope is bought
And the bough is swung
Rope is bought
And the bough is swung
An innocent man
This day will be hung

Come on, my love
And see me die
Come on, my love
And see me die
See me dancing
Dance 'NEATH the sky**
'Neath those gallows high
Come on and see me die

Winter is gone
And the leaves are green
Winter is gone
And the leaves ARE green**
Your innocent face
I wish I never had seen**

    General CommentThis is actually a song by John Renbourn released on his 65 LP. But its a pretty good song with Nick Drake, i must say.

    General Commenti love Nick Drake as well...Cello Man and Northern Sky are my favorites. i let an english teacher at my school listen to pink moon and he thought it was pretty rad...this teacher; hoever, is a big pothead.
