lyrics

His eyes seemed to glow like the fire
In a switched off amplifier
As he gave his jacket to me
I said I’d see him here next year
He said something I didn’t hear
He was gone the following Tuesday

Back when this country still had coal
And decent rock and roll
He wasn’t building the Vulcan bomber
He was singing in the clubs
In the rain and in the pubs
Where they built your new McDonald's

Years spinning by like his old 45's
Too young for Korea
But too proud to wear a tie
DIY
Since 1955

Now he’s in the sky with his wife
Singing songs from a time
Before this was just a hair do
Some heroes don’t wear medals
Don’t carry guns they hold guitars
Don’t throw out their blue suede shoes

I can’t wear your jacket
I’ll never sing like you

Spend your life punching clocks
And wait for the golden watch
But there’s still a voice inside of you
We’ve used up all the coal
Still got no self control
Couldn’t stop this if we wanted to

He was a long player
