A Dream of England

Notes:

The song came out of patriotism born in childhood. Heroic tales and myths that I was reading at school while Nobby Stiles and Ringo ruled the world. Then touring the country in a Transit van – overwhelmed by the hospitality we received in towns and villages that had seen the heart ripped out of them by Thatcherism. I was always dreaming that this country could be great again.
