Hush little baby, don’t you cry When we get to tucson you’ll see why We left the snowstorms and the thunder and rain For the desert sun, we’re gonna be born again What’s important in this world A little boy, a little girl
Hush little darling, go to sleep Look out the window and count the sheep That dot the hillsides and the fields of wheat Across america as we cross america What’s important here today The broken line on the highway
All the love in the world for you, girl Thumbelina in a great big scary world All the love in the world for you, girl Take my hand and we’ll make it through this world
Hush little baby, my poor little thing You’ve been shuffled about like a pawned wedding ring It must seem strange, love was here then gone And the oklahoma sunrise becomes the amarillo dawn What’s important in this life Ask the man who’s lost his wife

Richard Thompson's "Vincent Black Lightning 1952" Yes I know a Vincent's not a Triumph, but the feeling's the same"
Vincent Black Lightning 1952
by Richard Thompson
Said Red Molly to James that's a fine motorbike A girl could feel special on any such like Said James to Red Molly, well my hat's off to you It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952 And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems Red hair and black leather, my favorite color scheme And he pulled her on behind And down to Box Hill they did ride
/ A - - - D - / - - - - A - / : / E - D A / / E - D A - / Bm - D - / - - - - A - - - /
Said James to Red Molly, here's a ring for your right hand But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man I've fought with the law since I was seventeen I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22 And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you And if fate should break my stride Then I'll give you my Vincent to ride
Come down, come down, Red Molly, called Sergeant McRae For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside Oh, come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left He was running out of road, he was running out of breath But he smiled to see her cry And said I'll give you my Vincent to ride
Says James, in my opinion, there's nothing in this world Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl Now Nortons and Indians and Greeveses won't do They don't have a soul like a Vincent 52 He reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys He said I've got no further use for these I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome Swooping down from heaven to carry me home And he gave her one last kiss and died And he gave her his Vincent to ride
Says it all...

On the subject of songs about Triumph riders, I noted Sheryl Crowe wore a T-shirt with a Meriden Triumph logo in her video for her song, 'Steve McQueen', although the bike she was riding wasn't one Meriden ever saw ... :rolleyes:
