Richard Harris - A Tramp Shining/Patsy Cline - I Fall To Pieces

Old Pa's Wednesday Club

...Everybody's got to learn sometime!

A down guy
RICHARD HARRIS - A Tramp Shining

  Destruction 2

The phone rang
it was her
she wanted to meet
my heart

my chest
went into explosion mode
i had difficulty to balance
it had been 6 months
since she walked away

6 months
 since the destruction

'she wanted me back!
did she want me back?'

'A tramp shining' came into my mind'

to think i used to be in control 
and used to run the show

'she wants me back
i want her back'

the day arrived

i was trembling with excitement
she looked even better
than the golden image

 she looked beautiful
the smile

the cynism
that is why I loved her 

everything I said was like a movie
my confidence was back
that old swagger was there

 'Oh! its great to keep in touch,
it is so good that we can still be friends,
 have you got a new girlfriend?

i have met someone
his name is Angelo
he's comes from Italy'
i crumbled
and i fell to pieces   

PATSY CLINE - I Fall to Pieces

If you get the chance to watch the Patsy Cline story it is a great watch. It is called 'Sweet Dreams' and stars Jessica Lange.

That's just too much, sir. Crushing. 'A Tramp Shining' is a complete classic. All the stuff Richard Harris did with Jimmy Webb is marvellous.

Patsy Cline - can add nothing to perfection.

"..good that we can still be friends?" - brutal

Ouch. Remarkably vivid verse Old Pa - it summons up some ghosts of my own that I'd rather let lie.

Break-up tunes. There's an idea for a feature, though too depressing perhaps.

SB - Webb and Harris like Gin and tonic, honey and lemon
TS - we do have a long running feature of break up sonks.....I love a good break up.

You ol' romantic, you. If the name Angelo can inspire a Brotherhood Of Man song then you know you can stand proud.
