Biography

Im a simple man with simple ideas, i try to convey that in my song writing. My story is far too long to bore you with the details, maybe if you have the time one day i'll make you laugh cry and sweat with the gory details over copius amounts of alcohol

Lyrics

alba farewell

Written By: graham smith

well i was 17 when i left my home i was cold and hungry i was all alone but i was dreaming oh i was dreaming of you....

i sailed on open seas still i could find no peace and so i closed my eyes and dreamt of sunny skies but i was dreaming of you oh i was dreaming of you..

although the years pass by still there's a tear in my eye when i think of you

and so i found myself in this foreign land with just the clothes on my back and a case in my hand and i was missing oh i was missing you

i walked through streets of mean the likes i'd never seen still i was missing oh i was missing you

although the years pass by still there's a tear in my eye when i think of you

and so i've lived my life and i've lived it well but now im growing old and i've got stories to tell but im loving oh im loving you

its been near' 60 years i've shed blood sweat and tears and now im not alone you'll always be my home and im loving oh im loving you

and although the years pass by still there's a tear in my eye when i think of you (repeat)

modern love

Written By: graham smith

i asked her if she would be mine and she said baby i haven't got the time, well that cut me right to the bone 'twas then that i realised how i've never felt so alone

well baby i'm asking you i am pleading with you please, and if thats what it takes i will get down on my knees, cause now you've had your fun it is time you cut me slack and when you've finished playing wont you take this knife out my back

how can you do this find it so easy to be cruel, take my heart and stab it and play me for a fool, well now i cant take this pain oh my baby you will see oh just what it feels like when you mess around me

im sorry honey i didn't mean to shoot you dead oh lord im so fucked up what is going on in my head? well now i think its time it is time i met my fate, and then we'll be together honey open up the gates

steamboat blues

Written By: graham smith

well goodbye sunday hello blues wish i could go back to sleep again, spent all weekend on the booze, heads burst and my moods as black as sin, and i want to feel alright cause i've got a hard day ahead of me, but i feel like fucking shite, i need more coffee and nicotine

depression eats my soul, don't want to rock and roll i've got the steamboat blues but then come friday night i know i'll feel alright i'll kick the steamboat blues

well goodbye sunday hello blues, i need a drink just to cure the shakes, and i've got nothing to loose cause my teeth hurt and my body aches, im sick but i need to earn some money to pay my mortgage fee, an when will i ever learn, this lifestyle will be the death of me

depression eats my soul dont wanna rock n roll i've got the steamboat blues
but then come friday night i know i'll feel alright i'll kick the steamboat blues, i've got the steamboat blues, i've got the steamboat blues, i'll kick the steamboat blues
