Lyrics

Seagulls

Written By: James Connolly

Seagulls
by James connolly

Get up each morning for the seagulls on the shore
All this commotion and fighting this bloody war
All i want is lovin, that's for sure, all i want is lovin, that's for sure

Came across the ocean to this foreign land
Met a lot of strangers that took me by the hand
All i want is lovin thats for sure, all i want is is lovin that for sure .

Let us have some peace on earth and show that man above
That we love each other, just lioke the snow white dove
All i want is lovin thats for sure, all i want is lovin thats for sure

Tell the man right next to you that he will see delight
And the woman in your arms, you love her with all your might
All i want is lovin, that's for sure, all i want is lovin thats for sure

Met a girl named Lainey, on this foreign road
Told her how i felt here, would she help me share my load
All i want is lovin, that's for sure, all i want is lovin that for sure

Lead Break ..

Repeat 3rd. verse ...
Repeat 1st. verse ...

Hard Drive blues

Written By: James Connolly

Hard Drive Blues
by James Connolly

I'll tell you a story that happened to me
One day I was loading up some music for free
Now I don't want you to feel so highly amused
I got problems, I got hard-drive blues

I'm sitting here on my computa
Dont wanna feel like a big bad loser
But hey everybody, have ya heard the news
I got problems I got hard-drive blues

My hard-drive's wiped out, I'm feelin some pain
Looked out the window, it just started to rain
All my music deleted, what am I gonna do
I got problems, I got hard-drive blues

Called up the company with a question or two
Feelin frustrated, asked them what should I do
I feel your pain Sir and I know you're confused
You got problems, you got the hard-drive blues

My son's on the phone now, hey dad what's new ?
I just tried to email ya, couldn't get thru
I was just wondering, how you were doin
I got problems Son and I got hard-drive blues

Called up my baby she was taking a nap
Told her all about my little mis-hap
Hard-Drive's fried babe, aint in a good mood
I got problems and I got hard-drive blues

Repeat Verses 2 & 6

Hurricane Blues (Frances)

Written By: James Connolly

Hurricane Blues (Frances) by James Connolly.

Harmonica
Intro.

I feel so alone in this big bad world
I feel so alone when wild winds blow
Feel so alone and oh so cold
The feeder-bands of Frances
touched my soul.

Harmonica

I wanna go home in broad daylight
I wanna go home, without candlelight
Need no more storms and no more ghosts
The feeder-bands of Frances
touched my soul

Harmonica

Need no more boards on my windows
Need no more shadows in my home
Causing me shivers in my bones
The feeder-bands of Frances
touched my soul

Harmonica
Outro.

(James Connolly)
