about

The sound of waves caress the beach, moonlight throws a silvery glow and all of the King's men know the night belongs to the Scarecrow.

lyrics

On moonlit nights down by the coast
men move like so many ghosts
some are nervous, some cloaked in fear
their all waiting for the signal...the coast is clear....

Night creatures on the marsh
Phantoms of the coast
watch the wall as they go by
'tis they that risk the most

Brandy for one and baccy for another
bales of silk and gin for your mother
the good vicar plots with Mipps the wise
so hail the Scarecrow and damn the excise

Night creatures on the marsh
Phantoms of the coast
watch the wall as they go by
'tis they that risk the most

All the King's redcoats, the locals sang
they couldn't stop the trade of the Romney Marsh gang
but on who's orders did they win
was it Captain Clegg or good old Dr Syn.....

Night creatures on the marsh
Phantoms of the coast
watch the wall as they go by
'tis they that risk the most

Night creatures on the marsh
Phantoms of the coast
watch the wall as they go by
'tis they that risk the most
