Lyrics
Blantyre Blues

Born on the Coatshill delta grew up with holes in my shoes
hung around every street corner there was
i was smoking and drinking the booze
on the road to destruction fast oh i was living the way that i new
oh oh i woke up in the morning Yeh
i got the Blantyre blues

even if i could have i Dont think i would have changed what i done
everything that could have normally always would have
turned out so wrong
but i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long

way back then on the corner lower north side of Millands
anything goes when your hanging around
somethings could get out of hand
times they have changed and the faces are new
gone are the days and the things we would do
but i woke up in the morning Yeh
i got the Blantyre blues

even if i could have i Dont think i would have changed what i done
everything that could have normally always would have
turned out so wrong
but i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long

but i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long
Yeh i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long
Yeh i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long

Always wanting to showcase talent like this on Blantyre Project, I’ve ensured Jim has been entered into “Blantyre Explained”, a forthcoming definitive Blantyre book.

Good rolling beat. Full sound. Easy flow to the guitar solo. Warm vocal. Publishing the lyrics would help me get the flow of the song. Much enjoyed!
Check out my latest song called First Night Alone
