Storyteller

Ray Davies, released on The Storyteller (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 1998

.

I'll tell you a story to pass on to the end,

as told to me so long ago by my good friend

As we hollowed round the log fire, we laughed the whole night long,

as he told me a tale passed on to him by a wanderin' vagabond

My friend told me the story and I'll pass it on to you

It was handed down this century and he swore that it was true

.

And in the morning I could see him fade

Was it fact or fiction? Who can say?

(Storyteller) I believe ev'ry word you say

(Storyteller) I bet you told a good tale in your day

.

He tried to tell the people, but the people wouldn't hear

him spinning yarns and telling tales from yesteryear

.

Then he smiled and finished his story

He said "Will you pass it on for me?"

(Storyteller) I'll tell that tale for you

(Storyteller) Somehow I'll get your message through

.

My friend told me the story and I'll pass it on to you

It was handed down this century and I swear that it is true.
