Trader Horne – The Mixed up Kind

Well, my grandfather spoke to me
And told me of his fears
And he smashed my tin soldiers
His eyes were full of tears

Well, a river flew down my face
And ran across the floor
And the people who jumped over it
Were washed up on the floor

Oh, the mixed up kind
Oh, the mixed up kind
The mixed up kind
The mixed up kind

Well, the stars fell like dust
And everybody died
And the sky shed a million tears
And everybody cried

Well, the singer sang his song
That had one word
And the runner came in far too late
From running ‘round the world

Oh, the mixed up kind
Oh, the mixed up kind
The mixed up kind
The mixed up kind

Well, the stars fell like dust
And everybody died
And the sky shed a million tears
And everybody cried

Well, the singer sang his song
That had one word
And the runner came in far too late
From running ‘round the world

Oh, the mixed up kind
Oh, the mixed up kind
The mixed up kind
The mixed up kind

Trader Horne biography
an acid folk group at the turn of the 60’s that is known for having vocalist Judy Dyble (ex-Fairport and Giles, Giles & Fripp) and former Jackie Mc Auley (ex-Them and Belfast Gyspies) in their ranks. Their sole album Morning Way, released on the Dawn label, contains a sometimes progressive folk, sometimes acid folk, featuring mainly acoustic guitars and keyboards (among which a harpsichord) but also the odd flute (played by another ex-Them member Ray Elliot) and typical crystal-clear female vocals.
As Dyble left to found a family, she was replaced by Saffron Summerfield.
