Seven Sisters by The Royal Vincident published on 2012/08/27 17:45:09 +0000 The Tube name 'Seven Sisters' refers to seven ancient trees, which were once a landmark in the area. Sadly they have long gone. They were planted in a circle and were mentioned in medieval texts etc. There is a picture of them made with tiles on one of the platforms. In this song, some medieval pilgrims have stopped off at the 'seven sisters' on the way to their destination - perhaps Canterbury, or somewhere like it. My wonderful wife Michelle is singing backing vocals in the verses. Lyrics: Over hill and dale, we come to worship you - Seven trees in bloom. Town and country hearth, we lift our hands to you: First he's dead, now he is alive! All my life I give, to be on pilgrimage, Peering through the gloom. Help me on my way, to be there on that day, Where there's joy and I am alive!
