Gwendolyn

Credits: 
Roger McNamee

Long ago and far away, in a farmhouse near Chisholm Abbey
There lived a girl, Gwendolyn was her name
Mother died when she was young, Gwendolyn took care of Daddy
Broken in spirit, Daddy took all she could give
Early morning, every morning ,Gwendolyn would toil at farming
She milked the cows, worked the garden, cooked the meals
Every time she met a young man, Daddy’s needs would grow again
No flame could last, with Daddy, no flame could last
Gwendolyn met many men , hoping she would find the man ,who filed her heart and soul
Helped to make her love unfold.
Gwendolyn met many men, but in the end
She, belonged to Daddy
Then one day near Chisholm Abbey, a soldier’s love would make her happy
They dreamed of life, they dreamed as one
After only weeks together, to war her true love was sent forever
By old men who smiled, with young men who cried
War was hard on Chisholm Abbey, farming failed for her and Daddy
Work in town was scarce, as Gwendolyn would learn
At night she did her neighbor’s laundry, she did their mending, she did their bidding
She made ends meet, begging money just to eat
Gwendolyn met many men, but none could ever replace the Man
Who filled her heart and soul, helped to make her love unfold
Gwendolyn met many men, but once again she was alone with Daddy

Daddy’s spirit was ever broken, his daughter’s fears were left unspoken
Gwendolyn struggled on, though hope was hers no more
Then one night she lit a lantern, to serve all men in need of comfort
She gave her soul, getting pennies in return
Gwendolyn lived to serve her Daddy in the farmhouse near Chisholm Abbey
It was no life, though she struggled till the end
Gwendolyn died near Chisholm Abbey. left behind her worthless Daddy.
Her spirit fled to fields where soldiers fell.
Gwendolyn knew many men, in spirit she rejoined the Man
Who filled her heart and soul, helped to make her love unfold
Gwendolyn knew many men, but she only loved on Man,
He filled her heart and soul, helped to make her love unfold
Gwendolyn embraced her Man, a love renewed inside the gates of heaven

"Gwendolyn," a folk song in the old English style, and the first song Chubby wrote specifically to create a soloing platform for Barry, including a turn around that could enable Barry to do something magic at the end. Chubby started from the classic notion from English novels of a daughter persevering through the hardships imposed by a cruel father. He made the true love a soldier, which allowed him to make a secondary point about the people who start wars, but don't suffer the consequences. Roger Mcnamee
