WILLIE NELSON AND BOB DYLAN - Pancho and Lefty

OL' BADSHOT LEA

I was visiting my daughter in Camberley and we took a little trip to visit a Bird Sanctuary with my Granddaughter Ripley. I was really taken with all the fantastic names of places, especially Bagshot Lea. Here is one for the kids. If you care to do illustrations for me, we have a children's book. What do you think?

OL' BADSHOT LEA

No panic or alarm
down Holt Pound Farm
walking happy and free
a fake Winchester gun
that he held just for fun

and they called him with affection
Ol' Badshot Lea

Walking with a cane
near Ringmead Lane
it was a new place to be
with slingshot and gun
no harm was ever done

and they called him with affection
Ol' Badshot Lea

His time was brief
visiting Oxdale heath
he was high up in a tree
dressed in his green
he was not easily seen

and they called him with affection
Ol' Badshot Lea

It was late in the day
near Strawberry Way
singing hi diddley dee
was followed by dogs
some squirrels and frogs

and they called him with affection
Ol' Badshot Lea

Crossing the bridge
along Slingshot Ridge
his freedom by decree
he talked to animals
the birds and the bees

and they called him with affection
Ol' Badshot Lea

Known to be seen
near Frimley Green
bag down to his knee
was filled with sweets
to give children treats

and they called him with affection
Ol' Badshot Lea

Way up in his hide
close to Heatherside
happy as he can be
with a tall pointy hat
and his whisby beard

And if you're not in the know
his real name was Camber Lea
