Song: Wilson (2nd version)


Yeah, that was Wilson
He was fast on the draw
Yeah, that was Wilson
He was outside the law

1.In his white silk shirt
And his Spanish hat
And his black waistcoat
How he cut a dash
With his iron guns
Strapped to his side
And the way he walked
And the way he died

2.How he kept so clean
With a barbers cut
who knows how
there’s no barmaids love
all that you could smell
was the smell of blood
and his spurs would jangle
around his foot

3.if you got in his way
you would have to pay
he’d humiliate you
til your hair turned grey
and your time ran out
and there a no time left
when he made his move
it was sudden death

4.Yea that was Wilson
he was fast on the draw
then he met one faster
it’s a gunslingers law
his evil heart stopped
his life slipped away
no one remembers
how he died that day

Wilson chorus on guitar

Father fetch those chains

Father fetch those chains
This boy he’s no good
Father fetch those chains
He’s not our blood – anymore

1.He won’t go to school
He just runs away
He won’t do his work
He just wants to play

2.He don’t believe in god
Neither in god’s love
He won’t trust in sacrifice
or in Lord Jesus’s blood

3.He does not act right
He sings in the rain
He gets into fights
He has got a bad name

4.Sister wants to say
He just needs our love
But he breaks the rules
Swearing like a lug

Song: You don’t notice me

you don’t notice me
you think i’m no good
you don’t notice me
i wish that you would
You don’t notice me
even tough i’m in love
you know i was born
on a backwards farm
they put it on the news
to raise the alarm
the country was plagued
by fire and flood
they blamed it on me
like you know that they would
you don’t notice me
even though i’m in love

you don’t notice me
you think i’m no good
you don’t notice me
i wish that you would
you don’t notice me
even though i’m in love
you know that i live
with no penny to my name
your know when there’s a crime
i get the blame
what went wrong
it’s that kid in a hood
one look at me
ends shivers in the blood
you don’t notice me
even though i’m in love

mp3 of sibelius audio of you don’t notice me


A song with a country rock rhythm, muted strings percussive sound.
Not happy with the even though i’m in love bit, i would work more on it if it was any good, as it is its just a bit of fun to write anyway.
The PDF has come up nicely but i don’t know how, its the first time its come out like this.

Take that weight off of your mind

Take that weight off your mind

Take that weight off your mind
Take that wedge out of your heart
Instead of stone, sow seed
You can make a new start

The town you are in is a hard one
With streets of dismal drab
Come and see me, I will make you smile
Together we will never be sad

Take that weight off your mind
Come and follow the lines of signs
Everywhere you go today the sun shines
I’m yours and you’re mine

Pet dog blues

Pet dog blues
You give me Pet dog blue
I’ve been a part of you so long
I think I really am you

Pet dog blues
Only my empty bark echo’s in the wind
Only my serial number in the mirror
Shows I’ve never really been

My nuts and bolts are loosening
Soon your pet dog dies
Thinking only of you
Forgiving all your lies

I feel like a fountain motionless in the sky

I feel like I’m a fountain motionless in the sky
I feel I might start living ever since you came by

I thought you might desert me
After all that has been
I’m glad that you are with me
I’m your fountain, you’re my dream

Now I’m flying I was kneeling
Have you ever known such a feeling?

I’m your jack-in-the-box

Take me out, open me
I’m your Jack in the box

I’ve been stuck in the darkness
So lonely have I been
Then you came and found me
And opened up a dream

I’m your jack in the box
I’m bound to spring up out at you
It’s not that I’m being square
That’s only on the outside
Inside I really care

You’ll never know how much I cried
But no – I’m your Jack In the Box
But no I’m your Jack in the box
And I’m bound to spring out at you

A big buzz fly

A big Buzz fly comes into my room
And I lose how I felt about you
He’s so noisy like a buzz saw
He cut me up in two

I know that I might loose
That we’ve never really been friends
Go home to your buzz fly
I hope you make amends

There are many too many buzz flies
All around you
I try to swat another
Will I ever get to love you?

I don’t know what is wrong with me.
I should be sad and blue
But I woke up with the happiness bug
Feeling good and new

I’ll have to go back to my poetry

I’ll have to go back to my poetry
To sitting in chairs in dusty rooms
To human easels crying like rain
To mopping up the tears of the moon

There are a hundred and one dagger in my soul
I bleed so much I’m feeling very cold
How can it be the sun makes me lose the blues?
What should be, what should be my goal

I’ll have to go back to my journey
I’m like a pilgrim in the land of the night
I’ll have to go home to the wax works
To watch the dummies melt in their spite

There are a hundred daggers in my soul
I bleed like a murdered goal
There are a hundred daggers in my soul
How can I ever be whole?

I don’t feel like being miserable

I don’t feel like being miserable
I don’t feel like being sad
But what I need to be happy
Is a hundred miles away

Remember this day forever
When you climbed the mountaintop
It can’t stay this way forever
I’m not a have, I’m a have not

But I don’t want to feel like being blue
I don’t want to be so sad
But I watch the bird melting on the rooftop
I’m either dreaming or I’ve gone mad

Song: I’m in love and she won’t believe me

I’m in love and he won’t believe me
I’m in love and she won’t believe me
I’m in love and he won’t believe me no

Verse

It is true that inside my heart
That lonliness plays a part
That lonliness keeps me in the dark

When loves comes through I’m feeling good
The sun comes out and I’m in love
The sun comes out and I fall in love

Sibelius audio for “I’m in love and he won’t believe me”

PDF of “I’m in love and he won’t believe me”

I wrote this in 1994 about but finally got it worked out now.

Song: Train Rider

Song: Train rider

Train rider, train rider
Where are you going to?
Going to the end of the line
Going to the end of time

You’re watching the stations go by
Grasping at shadows, hiding your chains
Watching the birds how they fly
Hiding your thoughts, hiding your pain

Train rider, train rider
Do you think that you’re going to die?
Do you think that you’re going to die?

PDF of Train Rider

the numbers of scripture

The roman were awoken
In the year of his death
Amazed by an unusual picture
The Son of God
As he takes his last breath
Speaking the number of scripture

I came from the troubled
Country of old
I rambled through hurricane and twister
Then a leaf on the tree sang a bird song
Saying
Learn the numbers of scripture

I came to the cannon chain
Bleeding my gum
Then I heard the explosions
Whisper
Run from the battle
Get away from the gun
And learn the numbers of scripture

Into my room came
The stars of the earth
But I never learnt how to kiss her
I rolled up my carpet
And beat my toy drum
The many numbers of scripture

And down in the valley
Surrounded by hills
I could not find a brother or a sister
Yet the lake of eternity
Continued to be filled
With all the numbers of scripture

Song: I know the working class life

Am Em
I know what it’s like to feel insecure
Am Em
I know what it’s like not to dream
Am D G
I know what it’s like to go on strike
Am C G
Oh, I know the working class life

I know what its like on the new deal
Without a any future in sight,
The new deal is a lie in a suit and a tie
Oh, I know the working class life

I know all the lies that circulate
In the highest seat in the hall
And working class life is dripping and strife
Oh, I know the working class life



You can answer a poem with a poem

You can answer a poem with a poem
You can answer a song with a song
But if you have a fear of authority
Things like this will go wrong

Authority’s bomb away every day
In every way, spoiling your day
With your feet in the clay
With your feet in the clay
That you came from

You can answer a love with a love
You can answer a hate with a word
But if you have a fear of authority
You become part of the silent herd

The herd grows many and plentiful
And they roam the field all alone
When they take their teeth
Out of the meat
All you have left is the bone

I will lie down in the bracken

I will lie down to die in the bracken
I will watch the rainbow go by
I don’t want to die, taken care of
By the surgeon with a tray full of knives

To die in the city, is to die without pity
They rid you of your dignity and pride
I’d rather lie down in the bracken
My death I’d rather hide

In the big bad city
The last thing you will see
Is the concrete of the street
And the rumble of war
The windows full of meat
And chains on your feet
As they wheel you through hells double-door

I want to lie down in the bracken
With the beetle, the spider and worm
And the last thing I see – will be a rainbow
And the last thing I’ll hear – will be a bird

The disappearance

Am
Take the train up north
G
To the Roman wall
Am
Where the falcons cry
G
And the foxes call

Em
Am
Em
Am

Walk on up the hill
Afraid and all alone
Looking for the grave
Without a head-stone

And there by a stream
So cold and so remote
The signs of a struggle
And a bloodstained coat

The stranger on the path

Chorus

Am
There’s a stranger on the path
G
And he’s coming this way
Am
There’s a stranger on the path
G
And he’s coming this way

Verses

D G
There’ a stranger on the path
D G
With a patch on his eye
Am
He’s not going to let you pass
G
He’s not going to let you by


D G
Take out – your knife
D G
Take out – your gun
Am
The stranger has you trapped
G                                         D
He’s not standing there for fun
