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

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?

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

Angel mother

Dad has got a rifle
I’m sure he’ going to shoot someone
Dad has got a rifle
I’m sure he’ going to shoot some one
He watches from a distance
Mr, you had better run

He lives in a cave
He walks about the countryside
He lives in a cave
He walks about the countryside
He’s a perfect shot
With a lot of anger in his eye

Angel mother
Where have you gone to now?
Angel mother
Where have you gone to now?
Even if you’ve gone to heaven
I’ll find you there somehow

Snow blues

Snow blues

Trudging through the snow
On my ay to school
Trudging through the snow
On my way to school
It comes up to my knees
It gets inside my shoes

Walking over the ice
On my way to school
Walking over the ice
On my way to school
Somewhere I am bound to slip
Somewhere I’m sure to fall

Battling thru the icy wind
On the way to school
Battling thru the icy wind
On my way to school
Baby I’m all done here
Baby don’t treat me like a fool

True blues

I try to do what you say
But you confuse me
I try to do what you say
But you confuse me
I wish there was another way
Or that you’d free me

I do everything you ask
But it breaks me
I do everything that you ask
But it breaks me
I wonder is it love
Or do you hate me

You’re as sweet as sugar in a cup
That’s how you train me
You’re as sweet as sugar in a cup
That’s how you train me
I’m thinking that something must be up
The way you cane me

I can play

I can play like I’m havinf a stroke
I can play with my facein a poke
I can play like I’m having a stroke
And I’m about to die
I can play while bleeding from my heart
I can [play while I’m bleeding from my heart
And I’m about to die

I can play with a knife to my throat
While I’m standing in a sinking boat
I can play with a knife to my throat
And I’m about to die
I can play with a disease in my blood
I can play like I’ve never been loved
And I’m about to die

Let love

Let love come out of your mouth
Do not hide it
Let love come out of your mouth
Do not hide it
Love will make you want to shout
Do not mind it

Words float like bubbles
Soon to pop
Words float like bubbles
Soon to pop
Keep them on the water
Don’t throw heavy rocks

If you want to know how love begins
It’s in her voice
If you want to know how love begins
It’s in her voice
Say it only once
You don’t need to say it twice

Song: Go into love

Go into song
Go into fire and water
Go into caves
Go into the graves of the solar system

Go into song
Go into the bellies of fishes
Go into elephants
Go into the wishes of finches

Go into song
Go into gondoliers
Go into the hammer and sickle
Go into grizzly bears

Go into song
Go into my love
Go into my lovers dreams
Go into my lovers heart

Go into love

Sweet nothings

I used to love
Sweet nothings
When the sun shone
In the fields
I used to love
Sweet nothings
When she burnt
Our swords and shields
I used to play
With sweet nothing
And we’d walk
The avenue
I tried to capture
sweet nothing
But then
Away she flew

Now in comes
The Irish band
They play
Their songs of love
I go in search
Of sweet nothing
I leave
A trail of blood
I followed her
Into a mirror of debt
And I never came out alive
Now I’m tied
To these steakhouse blues
With sweet nothing
By my side

With sweet nothing
In my ears
With sweet nothing
And so many tears
Do you despise
The proof of your eyes
The sweet nothing of your fears

I longed for sweet nothing
I believe
She might have died
Perhaps to go
To heaven
Perhaps
A place to hide
Chances come
And chances go
They dance
Around the floor
While sweet nothing fades
In morning light
And disappears too soon
