'Forgive the erring character who's blemished none but their own soul'
- Sandy Denny

And Who Knows Where

Sandy Denny. 1947 - 1978

She gave us so much , with her words and her music, and we gave her our love.Her voice will live on forever in her songs. She lives, for us, in one particular piece, written by Dave Swarbrick, White Dress, a touching, heartfelt song, that invokes Sandy's image, so well. She left us far too soon, and the loss was and still is, felt deeply, but, she left us an amazing legacy, that you can hear anytime you want, if you go out a purchase the records. Do yourself a huge favour and do that, and in remembering Sandy heed the words of the lyrics to White Dress by Dave Swarbrick, written for and sung by Sandy ...remember and be joyful and be glad.

 White Dress
(Dave Swarbrick)

Feel how the wind blows, December despair,
Bring me a ribbon to tie up my hair,
I’ll be your bride, go where you go,
All of my life, you’ll be my beau.

Kiss me and I might
Put on a white dress,
If you’ll take me dancing tonight.
The night’s in your face, sky’s in your eyes,
The day’s in my arms when you’re by my side,
Whenever you’re weary I’ll sing you a song,
Whenever you’re lonely I’ll show you you’re wrong.

Come from the window, let’s climb the stairs,
All of my sorrows are none of your cares;
While life is in us, let’s love all we can.
I’ll be your women, you’ll be my man.

Kiss me and I might
Put on a white dress,
If you’ll take me dancing tonight.
The night’s in your face, sky’s in your eyes,
The day’s in my arms when you’re by my side,
Whenever you’re weary I’ll sing you a song,
Whenever you’re lonely I’ll show you you’re wrong.

Sandy

Reinhard Zierke's (Mostly) English Folk
Music Website.
 massive thanks Reinhard...!
 

her page on our
Fairport Convention website
 

lyrics to one hundred
and forty-eight songs
written and/or sung by her

Although she only spent 18 months
with the band Sandy Denny remains,
for many, the abiding voice
of Fairport Convention.
During 1969 alone,
Sandy and Fairport released
three extraordinarily accomplished
albums and the second of these
 “Uhalfbricking” showcased the
definitive version of Sandy’s finest song.
