Song Lyric Sunday 5/21/17 – Rhiannon

Before we get going here, 5/21/17 is my one-year WordPress anniversary. Has it been that long already? Obligatory anniversary post to come later today.

This week’s topic for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song with a person’s name in the title or lyrics. Well, this is one of those admittedly I didn’t put any effort into at all and someone else will probably duplicate this one but that’s OK. I’ve had a miserable week, I’m emotionally exhausted and it is what it is. So sue me.

So the first song I thought of was this lovely little tune from Fleetwood Mac. I have to admit, Fleetwood Mac has been a favorite of mine from childhood. There’s just something so captivating about their sound; from the vocal harmonies to the chord structure of their music; it’s unlike anything else really.

Here then is “Rhiannon” by Fleetwood Mac (written by Stevie Nicks):

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
And wouldn’t you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover?
All your life you’ve never seen a woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised to you heaven?
Will you ever win?

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark
And when the sky is starless
All your life you’ve never seen a woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised to you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

Rhiannon

Rhiannon
Rhiannon

She rings like a bell through the night
And wouldn’t you love to love her?
She rules her life like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover?
All your life you’ve never seen a woman taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised to you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

Rhiannon
Rhiannon
Rhiannon

Oooooh
Taken by
Taken by the sky
Taken by
Taken by the sky
Taken by
Taken by the sky

Dreams unwind
Love’s a state of mind
Dreams unwind
Love’s a state of mind

There’s a wrap for this week. As always, hope you liked it. If you thought this pick sucked let me know too so I can try to do better in the future. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Fleetwood Mac is one of those bands that I never really listened to, but every time I listen to them I feel like I missed out. I suppose I could always catch up, but that’s what SLS is for, right? Great song, great post. Congrats on 1 year!! ๐Ÿ™‚
