One long day, one lonely night That morning sun don't look so right Cos I'm lost without you deep down in my soul I try to get some sleep Your memory still keeps on Haunting me baby deep down in my soul No matter what I try I'm stuck on your goodbye One day the truth will bite but for now I got to fight Don't know what I’m gonna do to get me over you 'Cos I'm lost without you deep down in my soul I promise to forget But I always lose that bet You’re still dealing’ aces deep down in my soul One day I guess I'll learn But for now a fire still burns Like a beacon – imagine that, a beacon in my soul! No matter what I try I'm stuck on your goodbye One day the truth will bite but for now I got to fight Don't know what I’m gonna do to get me over you 'Cos I'm lost without you deep down in my soul Another day, another night Another week and I just lose the fight ‘Cos I’m lost without you deep down in my Lost without you deep down in my Lost without you deep down in my soul Deep down in my soul

Don’t say nothin’, I can see it in your eyes No, not one word, I can guess goodbye I saw it coming like those storm clouds in the sky Trouble was coming, I just didn’t know how fast. Looks like this dry spell is really set to last. But who’d a thunk it - all we’re gonna share’s a past. What kind of fool would let things come to this To lose a lover, and a friend as dear as this? I’ll taste forever your last sweet, bitter kiss Come tomorrow, I wonder where, where will I be On some lonesome highway, a wiser man maybe. Our sweet love a sad memory. What kind of fool would let it come to this? To lose a lover, and a friend as good as this? I’ll taste forever that last sweet kiss

Spring is here, the grass has ris’. I wonder where my Baby is I got these terrible Spring fever blues. Yes I do The sun is high but I’ll stay in bed, Ache in my heart and pain in my head With these terrible Spring fever blues We loved the winter long, Now I wonder what went wrong Spring has come but my Baby’s gone from me I wonder where she is tonight. I long to kiss and hold her tight And end these terrible Spring fever blues Well, I’m down here by the harbour lights Watching ships pull out of sight Leaving me these terrible Spring fever blues Lovers pass me hand in hand. They could never understand My terrible Spring fever blues We loved the winter long. Now I wonder what went wrong Spring has come but my Baby’s gone from me I wonder where she is tonight. I long to kiss and hold her tight And end these terrible Spring fever blues She may not come back but then she might. If she does I’m gonna hold her tight And end these terrible Spring fever blues Gonna end these terrible Spring fever blues These terrible Spring fever blue

Never Miss A Day Of Your Love If I had an aeroplane, and I could fly, I’d write your name, in the sky I’d write I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love Sure there were times, and well you know, I packed my bag, said I’d go But I wouldn’t leave you. No I wouldn’t miss a day of your love You’re all the world to me. Our loves ev’rything love should be I’m so glad, out of the blue, all of a sudden there was you I know you love me, I don’t know why. I guess that I’m just, a lucky guy You know I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love You’re all the world to me. Our loves ev’rything love should be I’m so glad, out of the blue, all of a sudden there was you I know you love me, I don’t know why. I guess that I’m just, a lucky guy You know I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love You know I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love

Hey, Mama! You look so sweet The kind of woman that I’d love to meet Hey, Mama! You look so grand, I’d do anything just to hold your hand Hey, Mama! You look so fine The kind of woman that I want for mine Hey, Mama! Tell me what you say! Should I try my luck or turn and walk away? Hey, Mama! Can’t take much more Gotta know one way for sure Hey, Mama! Tell me what you say? Just a little clue would surely make my day Well boys, I guess that’s over now She’d be too good for me anyhow Hey, Mama! What’s that you say? Oh! Well bless my soul! The girl wants me to stay Hey, Mama! You fill me up Like a big, warm coffee cup Hey, Mama! Tell you what I say: I’m gonna love you girl until my dying day I’m gonna love you girl until my dying day I’m gonna love you girl until my dying day

Simon At Your Gate My boots are laughing at me I got newsprint for a bed Got no destination Just these voices in my head Crying “Rise up Simon!” Boots take me ‘way from here! Can’t imagine nowhere’s worse Don’t expect me any better than here My roof is Mother Nature My fuel methylate I keep my old army pocket knife For the stranger at my gate Won’t let no walls hold me That spirit keeps me warm And my knife is always handy If some fool tries to make me conform If you see a man of yesterday Shuffle by real late There’s no need to fear a spectre It’s just Simon at your gate Won’t let no walls hold him His spirit keeps him free, Could use your help but not your pity There’s more to him than anyone can see. There’s pity and puzzle in ordin’ry eyes Sometimes I see fear Lest foolishness or fickle fate Could one day land you here With no walls to protect you And on the street like me Doing all the best we can Rememb’ring who we used to be There’s pity and puzzle in ordin’ry eyes Sometimes I see fear Lest foolishness or fickle fate Could one day land you here With no walls to protect you And on the street like me Doing all the best we can Rememb’ring who we used to be. Could use your help but not your pity There’s more to us than anyone can see And if you look a little closer You’ll find people just like you and me

Well, you went away and left me high and dry You went away and left me high and dry You said you set me free but all I do is cry The days are long the nights are longer still The days are long the nights are longer still You left me emptiness I know I’ll never fill You been gone, you been gone, you been gone too long You been gone, you been gone, you been gone … Without you, what’s a man to do? ‘Cos I’m just going nowhere without you Might take a train, a bus, a plane, a car Might take a train, a bus, a plane, a car I’ll ride a camel if it takes me where you are My heart is broke and my head ‘ain’t right I lay awake alone each night Without you, what’s a man to do? ‘Cos I’m just going nowhere without you You went away and left me high and dry You went away and left me high and dry Now I’m just going nowhere without you

about

The melodies and some of the themes are influenced by my years playing in blues bands from Mississippi blues to modern. I owe much to walking-talking-writing-performing bluesman and friend, Mr. Jim Dowling and the late Tom Lewis.
