He is the Pegg Man

Author and long-time friend of Fairport, Nigel Schofield has penned this ode to 'the Pegg Man'. It seems familiar, but we can't quite put our finger on what it reminds us of. Maybe you'll have better luck!

A to D to B to C
Now play them all together
See how they run like riffs in a strum
See how they glide:
He's playing

Standing at the Cropfest
Waiting for the band to come
Cropredian t-shirt, Thursday through to Sunday
Man, you've been a naughty boy
You let your head grow bald

He is the Peggman
Yes, he's the bassman
He is the bassist
Goo Goo Ga Job

Sitting in a Breton garden waiting for the sun
If the sun don't come
We think of one
Who's standing in the English rain

Played with the Tull man
Stand on one leg man
He was the bassist
Jethro to-do man

Fairporty Convention
Down by the Danube
Elementary peggman singing Jolly Springtime
Man, you should have seen him kicking little Matty Groves
