GALVESTON (J. Webb)

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
She was 21 when I left Galveston

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannons flashing
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston

I still see her standing by the water
Standing there lookin' out to sea
And is she waiting there for me?
On the beach where we used to run

Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
Before I dry the tears she's crying
Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
At Galveston, at Galveston

 

GLAD I DON'T KNOW (E. Dando)

I'm glad I don't know what you’ve been thinking lately about yours truly
I bet I don't know how or when I'll fall, or if I'll see a movie
I'm glad I don't know left from wrong, or just how far I'll get

I'm glad I don't know
I'm glad I don't know

You just play your tricks all day, and run back home to bed
I bet when you get there, you just wanna get out, wishing you were dead
Or maybe you're real happy, just thrilled to break your bread
Well installed or so enthralled, or fucking right out of your head

I'm glad I don't know
I'm glad I don't know
I'm glad I don't know

GONNA GET ALONG WITHOUT YA NOW (M.Kellom)

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, gonna get along without you now
Mm-hmm, my honey, mm-hmm, my honey
Gonna get along without you now
You told me I was the neatest thing
You even asked me to wear your ring
Then you ran around with every girl in town
You never cared if it got me down
Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, gonna get along without you now
Mm-hmm, my honey, mm-hmm, my honey
Gonna get along without you now

Got along without you before I met you
Gonna get along without you now
Gonna find somebody who's twice as cute
'Cause I didn't like you anyhow
You told everybody that we were friends
But this is where our friendship ends
All of a sudden you changed your tune
You haven't been around since way last June
Mn-hmm, mm-hmm, gonna get along without you now
Got along without you before I met you
Gonna get along without you now
Good bye, my honey
So long, my dear
Gonna get along without you now

 


GOTTA STOP (E. Dando)

I'm sittin' up in my room
Thinkin' about you
Guess I'm just a wasted boy
With nothing better to do
Try not to pick up the phone
Eleven times a day
When do I hope you're not home
I got nothing to say

I gotta stop
It really hurts
I gotta stop

8 ways to say you're sorry
20 ways to lie
8 days to say tomorrow
Something better change

I gotta stop
It really hurts
I gotta stop

Stop


HALF THE TIME (E. Dando)

There’s a crow flying down from over the hill
Cracked paint on my window sill
Each morning broke provides a girl
Forget my evening feeling world
When day gets dark it seeps into my skin
And I recall the spark that kept me sane

Can’t talk to you it’s plain
Won’t start to name my pain
Or forget I don’t why
You tugged the corner of my eye
Moving up the neck of my guitar
I turn the lamp off, I see where you are

You’re the one light slowly fading in my mind
Furthest from my head, half the time
Simple point, too bright to leave the sky
You’re dissolving in my eye
In my eye
My closed eye
Half the time

Mountain Dew and Malboro
While I stew over all I owe
My eyes set wet against the breeze
Guide the sun into the trees
Where squirrels are holding acorns in their teeth
I can't see into why I made you leave

You’re the one light slowly fading in my mind.
The furthest from my head, half the time
A simple point revolving in my sky
You're dissolving in my eye


HANNAH AND GABI (E. Dando)

Got me watching your eyes
Watching things go by outside
Out the window of a train
Easy sipping them
Just seeing it fly left to right
Pour the milk and I’ll say when

I’m out wandering around
You’re the one thing I’ve found
I don’t mean to bring you down
I’m out wandering around

Kinda hoped you wouldn’t blame me
I can’t wake up
Every day and find the same me
You can scream
But I’ll just dream how you might disappear
All I know is it’s never clear

I can’t hold you near
You just are not here
Though it wasn’t hard or far
I walked you to your car

 

 


HATE YOUR FRIENDS (E. Dando)

You got problems you can’t solve
It’s enough to make you start to hate your friends
You go to a show, they stare at your face
Don’t you know? You hate your friends

When you got problems you can’t solve
It’s enough to make you start to hate your friends
You go to a show, they stare at your face
Don’t you know? You hate your friends

Your face is blushing
Your temperature’s rising
Drink yourself silly
There’s no use disguising that you hate your friends, go!

Stare at the newspaper, nothing to say
There’s really no use in me going away
I think I’m going to the drugstore today
Maybe that chick’s working over there today

When you got problems you can’t solve
It’s enough to make you start to hate your friends
You go to a show, they stare at your face
Don’t you know? You hate your friends

When you got problems you can’t solve
It’s enough to make you start to hate your friends
You go to a show, they stare at your face
Don’t you know? You hate your friends

Your face is blushing
Your temperature’s rising
Drink yourself silly
There’s no use disguising that you hate your friends

You hate your friends
You hate your friends
You hate your friends

 

 


HE'S ON THE BEACH

He was just a friend of mine
I'd run in to from time to time
And long before he moved away
We used to share a taste for wine
Still I never knew that he was sad back then
He said, the time had come for him to take a holiday

And he says it's brilliant there
There's something in the air
And sunshine everywhere
He's on the beach
I know he's changed somehow
He sends us postcards now
I'm not sure where he is, but he is out of reach

When he called me up one day
And said that he was going away
I thought he meant a week in France
And not 12,000 miles to Sydney Bay
Still he had to take his chances
He said, the time had come, for him, to make a move away

And he says it's brilliant there
There's something in the air
And sunshine everywhere
He's on the beach
I know he's changed somehow
He writes us postcards now
He's on his own again
And he is out of reach (I bet he gets it on the beach)
And I don't blame him
Leaving was the best thing he could do
He longed for changes
I just hope he's happy when he does the things he thinks he has to do
And he tries, and he tries, yes he tries
But he's a little bit hard on himself
So now he's trying to be someone else

And he says, he says, he says it's brilliant there
There's something in the air
And sunshine everywhere, he's on the beach
I know he's changed somehow
It's in his postcards now
He's on his own again, so far out of reach
And he says it's brilliant there
There's something in the air
And sunshine everywhere, he's on the beach
I know he's changed somehow
It's in his postcards now
He's in Australia
So far out of reach
And he says it's brilliant there.

 

 

 

HEY JOE (traditional)

nb: sections marked [] are spoken.

Hey Joe, I said where [sorry]

Hey Joe, I said where you going with that gun of yours
Hey Joe [I've never played this song before], said where you going with that gun in your hand
Going down to shoot my lady
Said I caught her messing around with another man

Hey Joe, you know I caught her messing around with another man
That ain't too cool
Hey, hey Joe, I heard [shit]
Hey Joe, I heard you shot your lady down, shot her down to the ground
Yes I did, I shot her
You know I caught my old lady messing round town
I give her the gun, I shot her
[This is our first Jimi Hendrix impression]

Hey Joe, where you going to run to now
Where you going to run to, where you going to go
Hey Joe, where you going to run to now
Where you gonna, where you gonna go
Going down Mexico way, somewhere I can be free
[I don't know this song very well]
The hangman ain't going to put a rope around me.

 

 

 


HOME

See 'Your Home Is Where You're Happy'


HOSPITAL (E. Dando)

There’s a disease
Going round the hospital
Green, green leaves
Falling from the trees

There’s a disease
Going round the hospital
Green, green leaves
Falling from the trees

You gotta run away
You gotta spin a web
You gotta stay out late
You gotta stay in bed

 


HOW WILL I KNOW

There's a girl I know, she's the one I dream of
Look into her eyes, takes me to the clouds above
Yes I lose control, I can't seem to get enough whoa
When I wake from dreaming, tell me is it really love?

Tell me how will I know?
How will I know?
How will I know?
How will I know?
How will I know if she really loves me?
I say a prayer with every heartbeat
Falling in love is so bittersweet
I'm asking you ‘cos you know about these things
How will I know if he's thinking of me
I try to phone but I'm too shy - can't speak
Falling in love is so bittersweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak?

Oh, wake me, I'm shaking, I wish I had you near me now whoa
Said there's no mistaking, what I feel is really love

Ooh how will I know
Don’t trust your feelings - how will I know?
How will I know?
Those things they can be deceiving
How will I know?
How will I know if he's thinking of me
I say a prayer with every heartbeat
