about

Another play with classic americana themes. Here the black-sheep boy returning home. Based on people I knew in Didcot very loosely. Some added harmonica and guitar. One of the strange influences here was Chris Cacavas of Green on Red and later solo fame. Not very well known but well worth seeking out. Same generation as Steve Wynn and Peter Case who also heroes. Oh and a LOT of Bruce Springsteen...I worshipped Nebraska...still do.

lyrics

PRODIGAL SON



I WAS DRIVING WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN

ROUND THE STREETS OF MY HOMETOWN

PAST THE GARAGE THAT BURNED DOWN LAST FALL

NOW IT’S JUST SOME BLACKENED WALLS


AN OLD MAN WAS SHOUTING AT ME

‘AIN’T SEEN YOU ROUND HERE SINCE ’73

MUST BE THE PRODIGAL SON’


I GOT MARRIED BACK IN ’69

WE HAD TWO KIDS BUT WE BARELY SURVIVED

THEN ONE DAY I ROLLED THAT OLD FARMER’S TRUCK

SEEMS LIKE I STARTED ON SEVEN YEARS BAD LUCK


NOW I’M DRIVING WITH MY EYES TIGHT SHUT

‘COS I CAN’T BARE TO LOOK AT WHAT I LOVED

THERE’S A HOUSE ON THE CORNER OVER THERE

THAT’S WHERE SHE LIVES NOW, HELL I DON’T CARE
