While Ralph McTell is best known for his classic folk song of the down-and-out, "Streets of London," it's far from being the only string to his guitar. Hesitation Blues," "Spiral Staircase," and the very dark "Michael in the Garden" all came from the same late-'60s period, and deserve equal stature as thoughtful, literate pieces in a time before it became truly fashionable. And they were just the beginning
Produced by Gus Dudgeon. Album Spiral Staircase. Streets of London Lyrics. Have you seen the old man In the closed-down market Kicking up the paper With his worn out shoes? In his eyes you see no pride Hand held loosely at his side Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news. So how can you tell me you're lonely And say for you that the sun don't shine? Let me take you by the hand and Lead you through the streets of London Show you something to make you change your mind
