lyrics

I have been a Routemaster, I have been a Telecaster
I was Achilles’s spear, and the arrows at Agincourt
Still the frame of a Morgan car
Hidden underneath, not always the star

I could be a fishing rod, I could be a butcher’s block
A primitive bike or an old cartwheel
You could get a table made
From a single bough, and a single blade

His ash is a luxury, wood’s essential mystery
But as I turn to dust, my uses are now history
Ashes to ashes, disease in the heart of me
You grew up under an ash tree

I have kept your fires alight, kept you warm throughout the night
My blood is the Mead of Inspiration
I guided Scott to the South Pole
On bended frame, that was my role

His ash is a luxury, wood’s essential mystery
But as I turn to dust, my uses are now history
Ashes to ashes, disease in the heart of me
You grew up under an ash tree

Sometimes I’m known as the widow maker
The tree of life and the heart breaker
Beware my shadow, obey my lore
Fraxinus Excelsior

Now, not essential as I once was
I am just decoration, gilding to the fields
Your sylvan friend and charcoal core
But beware the Emerald Ash Bore

His ash is a luxury, wood’s essential mystery
But as I turn to dust, my uses are now history
Ashes to ashes, disease in the heart of me
You grew up under an ash tree
