I think the lyrics thread needs some corrections now that http://www.pjharvey.net has all the lyrics to White Chalk (except for WUE, oddly) shown. For example, White Chalk:

"White chalk hills are all Ive known
White chalk hills will rot my bones
White chalk sticking to my shoes
White chalk playing as a child with you

White chalk south against time
White chalk cutting down the sea at Lyme
I walk the valleys by the Cerne
on a path cut fifteen hundred years ago

and I know, these chalk hills will rot my bones

Dorsets cliffs meet at the sea
Where I walked, our unborn child in me
White chalk, gorse-scattered land
Scratched my palms, theres blood on my hands"


So it was "the Cerne", and "gorse-scattered".

Also, the other one that gave us trouble, Before Departure:

"Farewell my friends
Farewell my dear ones
If I was rude
Forgive my weakness

Goodbye my friends
Goodbye to evening parties
Remember me
In the spring

Work for your bread
Soon we must leave
Remember your families
And work for your children

I dont need much
And the older I become
I realise
My friendships
Will carry me over
Any cause of strangeness
Any cause of distance

The friends that last
Will dance one more time
With me

I dont need much
But this, I need"

Thanks Dr, I'll correct it. I haven't checked the ones from the other albums either, so I should be copying everything again soon.
