George Harrison Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll) Lyrics

Last updated: 04/17/2010 11:00:00 AM

Let it roll across the floor
Through the hall and out the door
To the fountain of perpetual mirth
Let it roll for all it's worth

Find me where ye echo lays
Lose ye bodies in the maze
See the lord and all the mouths he feeds
Let it roll among the weeds
Let it roll

Let it roll down through the caves
Ye long walks of Coole and Shades
Through ye woode, here may ye rest awhile
Handkerchiefs to match your tie
Let it roll

Let it roll, let it roll
Let it roll, let it roll

Fools illusions everywhere
Joan and Molly sweep the stairs
Eyes that shining full of inner light
Let it roll into the night

Let it roll, let it roll
Let it roll, let it roll
Let it roll, let it roll

For Devan: he is saying 'Sir Frankie Crisp' in a deep voice, if you listen carefully. Another way is to use out of phase stereo (by inverting one channel of the song in a digital copy for instance) to more clearly hear it. This won't work for half the time because his words are being panned from left to right, but you'll still catch it. Hope that helps!



question? | Reviewer: Devan | 9/29/06

This is not a review just a question. During the refrain of the song,
sort when the accoustic plays, theres a voice saying something, its really deep sounding(Billy Preston?), it sounds something "Your so fine.." i can't make out what its saying. If you listen to it loud enough you can hear it. Just wondering if anyone can clear this up for me.

brilliant, absolutely brilliant, i think the whole album is a masterpiece and why some of the songs especially this, (if it was written around george's time with the beatles) weren't used is beyond me, beautiful melody - george's voice is at it's finest.....really great song, 10/10 this and 'run of the mill' are george's finest moments on a record for me.....bar maybe 'it's all too much'......Kier Smith - Nottingham. kier.smith@hillarys.co.uk
