Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
The grass in Ashfield Park is dying
Where everybody dreams of deeds of crime
And the Tartan Coloured Lady walks
Behind the water colours of my mind
And the Tartan Coloured Lady she is mine
People speak of willow trees in autumn
And my cloak doesn't fit her anymore
And the Tartan Coloured Lady that I wanted
walked out of this place an hour or so before
And the Tartan Coloured Lady locked her door
chorus:
So if your crystal window isn't broken
And they've taken all the dust bins from your door
Take yourself to Tartan Coloured Lady
And smell the grass in Ashfield Park once more
See the trees in Ashfield Park once more
So I guess I'll read the comic books you've left me
And play marbles on the floor
And if the Tartan Coloured Lady calls me
Just tell her I won't be home 'til four
Or just tell her I won't be home no more
(repeat chorus)
