From the recording The Great Unknown

A quieter folksy tune with a haunting cello part. Inspired by real life encounters with some of this planet's less fortunate folk, and the guilt generated by my good fortune...


An Old man in the dawn / just a running from the wild dogs
In the mist of Marrakesh / you thank your Djellaba for your flesh

Oh / oh oh / yah
Stay by my side / won’t you / stay by my side ? (x2)

Old woman all alone/ with a shopping cart / her own
she’s The mother of the street/ not someone that you wanna meet


Put a twenty in the ladies jar/ slipped away into my car
texting on my new iPhone / hashtag honey I’m a coming home


Passing by that electric gate/ where my cottage awaits
It’s Just another day/ before the people have their say
