PREVIEW NOV 28 GIG CARAVAN CLUB – THESE PARTS

I thought I’d put up lyrics to material we’ll be doing at the gig. If you’re coming you can run over them or if you have the Suburbs in the 70s CD you will find it on there.

AROUND THESE PARTS was the first song we rehearsed in The Suburbs. It was a sort of mix of Desert with Ulysses. Stuart Davies-Slate did some really neat drumming and I knew the band was going to work.

AROUND THESE PARTS

Around these parts
There’s nothing but cowboys’ graves
And burnt out Chevrolets
Both tell the story
Of broken men who played their days away.

Wheels turning, wheels turning in the clay
Hope spurning, all is gone and drift away

River Thames, now coloured purple from the blood
Of King and Cromwell’s men
Suppose they chose to go wherever flows
Regardless of the end?

Wheels turning, wheels turning in the clay
Hope spurning, all is gone and drift away

Who am I
To think that ever I could come to something more than this?
The browning stains
On urinals where dead men used to piss.

Wheels turning, wheels turning in the clay
Hope spurning, all is gone and drift away.

  1. Dave,
    As soon as I heard about the ‘Caravan Club’ gig at the end of November, I immediately grabbed tickets. Thanks for returning so soon and for the ‘heads up’ on the inclusion of that pearler ‘Around These Parts’. Very much looking forward to the show (and to discussing Sydney and Hirdy afterwards!)
    Cheers, Simon
