Try these

Supply the previous two lines to these two lines in each case: 
1. Because a vision softly cree-ping Left its seeds while I was sleeping 
2. To feel you all around me And to take your hand, along the sand 

3. When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed With a word she can get what she came for 

4. Let me in your window Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy 

5. One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble Can't be too careful with your company 

6. 'Twas there that you whispered tenderly That you loved me You'd always be* 

7. And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy And God I know I'm one

*  Vera Lynn version in English.


  1. 1. Hello Darkness my old friend, I've come to talk with you again
    4. Heathcliff, it's me your Cathy, I've come home I'm so cold
    5.One night in Bankok makes the hard man humble, Not much between despair and ecstasy.
    7. There is a house in New Orleans, they called the Rising Sun (my grandmother used to sing a long with that - yes, really!)

  2. All good so far. Bet no one gets N6.

    N2 was our one in my early 20s. In the forest, wherever we were, the guys and gals, there was always some girl with a guitar and we'd singalong. Songs like that were far bigger at ground level than Beatles etc.

  3. I'm guessing N6 is Lily Marlene? Vera Lynn era. The lines above scan OK with the toon but I don't know the words.

  4. Pretty good going. The lines were:

    Underneath the lantern
    By the barrack gate
    Darling I remember
    The way you used to wait

    Just a bit before our time.

  5. Didn't we have Lily Marlene here a year or so ago? I do remember goolaging the words for some reason.

  6. 3< There's a lady who's sure
    All that glitters is gold
    And she's buying a stairway to Heaven

  7. 2. In the chilly hours and minutes
    Of uncertainty
    I want to be
    In the warm hold of your lovin' mind.

    Catch the wind, Donovan

    Ian J

  8. Yes we did have it some time back.

    N3 completes the set, post coming up on N2 later.
