Track Name: Above the Rain
Above the Rain

New covers don’t suit your threadbare chair
Where you’ve sat for thirty years
If I’d been that chair sitting witness there
I’d have crumbled beneath my tears
But that’s what’s happened and I suppose it’s true
I can suffer the burden but can’t suffer you

You left in June to go and live elsewhere
Your friends lead me to believe
But the pain while there Never lasted to be fair
I was too drunk and selfish to grieve
You’re a man who says you’ll love and be true
But its only reflecting love you have for you

But it occurred to me then
As it occurs to me now
That above this rain
there’s stormy clouds
And above these clouds there’s sunshine
And beyond that sun there’s stars
And if you’re gone you’re gone
but things go on and on and on
Things go on and on

What we should do is knock sense into you
And I try to tell them no
Because what’s done can’t be undone as they say
It was your house and you got your way
And what’s is said can’t be unsaid not then or now.
And I know the reason but I don’t know how
Track Name: You Done Me Wrong
I seen the solitary skerries littered round Iona’s head
And I’ve been round some parts of Galloway no-one’s seen alive or dead
I’ve sat on the top of Blacksidend with not a house for miles to see
But for me there’s been no place lonelier than in your company
Cause woman you doing it wrong wrong wrong
Woman you doing it wrong

You won’t play me songs about being alone, you never been by yourself I’ll bet
While I’ve gotten so goddam lonesome girl they ain’t thought of a word for it yet.
You used to sing about being a lover though you aren’t much of one its true
And I’d rather be the last man living on earth than spend my time with you
You done me wrong woman wrong wrong wrong
Woman you done me wrong

Now soon you’ll be all by yourself when I finish preparing this hole
And Jesus he might want you yet if he can find your soul
I’m glad I beat you with this Brick though I’d not planned to bust your head
But even these flames of hell licking my feet won’t make me sorry that you’re dead
You done me wrong woman wrong wrong wrong
Woman you done me wrong
