about

A song inspired by the passing of an old mate and dedicated in the memory of all my lost mates from that era. Marty, Cocky, Fleas, Animal, Brendan, Richard, Flacky, Crunchie, Roland, Cooky, Al, Jezza...
The song was written as flash back to the mid 80s growing up on King Island young wild and free and how our worlds seemed invincible at the time. Only for the passage of time to remind us how vulnerable as human beings we really are. However sad the worlds get ultimately we have to be happy and the song is hopefully anthemic and uplifting.

lyrics

Wearing, no shoes, small town blues,
running around looking for clues
I remember days, left behind,
never a tear of thought on my mind, on my mind.

Skinny dipping, day tripping,
running around with my sidekick clocking
up those, country miles, behind the steering wheel we were singing
woo oo hoo woo hoo hooo

We thought those days would never end,
young heads young hearts so easy to pretend
But it aint me babe, I'me just asking, just asking for friend woo oo hooo

You and I we used each others shoulders,
we were young not planning on getting older
But time she comes around, breaks your heart and steels your crown
woo oo hoo woo hoo

We thought those days would never end,
young heads young hearts so easy to pretend
But it aint me babe, I'me just asking, asking for friend woo oo hooo

Now I am sitting at the bar of memory past
and the tales are coming out thick and fast
The barman has seen better men fall and the walls
the walls have seen it all of those old friends who walked out that door never to walk back into the room anymore

We thought those days would never end
Old heads old hearts now its not so easy top pretend
But it aint me babe I'me just asking just asking asking for friend
woo oo hooo I got the small town blues.
