NEW SINGLE: Paul McCartney "when winter comes" - CRAZY-HORSE - 02-01-2021





gorgeous little folk song from his "McCartney III" album.
previously unreleased from the Flaming Pie sessions and produced by George Martin.
can just imagine him sitting under an oak tree on his East Sussex farm strumming this one.
could quite as easily have been called "a day in the life (on my farm)"

Must fix the fence by the acre plot
Two young foxes have been nosing around
The lambs and the chickens won't feel safe until it's done

I must dig a drain by the carrot patch
The whole crop spoils if it gets too damp
And where will we be with an empty store
When winter comes?

When winter comes
And food is scarce
We'll warn our toes
To stay indoors
When summer's gone
We'll fly away
And find the sun
When winter comes

I must find the time to plant some trees
In the meadow where the river flows
In time to come they'll make good shade for some poor soul

When winter comes
And food is scarce
We'll warn our toes
To stay indoors
When summer's gone
We're gonna fly away
And find the sun
When winter comes

Must fix the fence by the acre plot
Two young foxes have been nosing around
And the lambs and the chickens won't feel safe until it's done

When winter comes
And food is scarce
We'll warn our toes
To stay indoors
When summer's gone
We're gonna fly away
And find the sun
When winter comes

And find the sun
When winter comes

Brilliant video ! This could have been on the white album (reminds me of Blackbird). Thanks my Macca fan mate !
