Lyrics

Acoustic Addiction

Written By: Andy Layfield

May night it’s a shindig
Blundstones and no bigwigs
Strucky said “need a show”
Two weeks, ready to go
Two weeks, ready to go

Gez bar, it’s a big thing
Fire-pit’s and bingeing
Pint night, AJ and crash
Hear it for miles, what a bash
For miles, what a bash

Word is out, came in droves
Gerry’s bar at the end of the road
Came to drink, cheer and fun
Joint was pumpin, acoustic addiction

Next day its legend
Grape talk and sledging
Big yarns shrowded in grog
Big sip, hair of the dog
Big sip, hair of the dog
Big sip, hair of the

Word is out, came in droves
Gerry’s bar at the end of the road
Came to drink, cheer and fun
Joint was pumpin, acoustic addiction
