These Quiet Lands

From the self-titled album “Véloniños”

Download Stream

Out on the trail, a red sky is risin’,
Over the Sound, the high Ben’s aglow,
That mirror of glass below unbroken,
In the quiet lands I wonder…
When will we love again?

Lonesome the bird, like the loveless callin’,
Along the bank, the wild iris grows,
And high on The Pass a blaze of gold,
In the quiet lands I missed you…
When will we love again?

Hushed now and chilled,
Timeless and still,
Something’s lost in this splendour, will I find you?

Winter so long! The Spring now is waitin’,
Bells are in bloom, all violet and blue,
And high up above young wings unfold,
In the quiet lands I loved you…
When will we love again?

Wild is the Rose, the white sands are singin’,
Oh, bring back the songs, the laughter and you,
These words in the wind, remain unspoken,
In the quiet lands I loved you…
When will we love again?
In the quiet lands I loved you…
When will we love again?
In the quiet lands I loved you…
When will we love again?

Don’t knock the preacher man…
Believe, believe I, I believe,
He’s doin’ what he can…
Believe, believe I, I believe,
All power and all might,
Born to wipe all sin aside,
Hey, that’s alright!

Misfit in Devil town…
Believe, believe I, I believe,
All roads leading down…
Believe, believe I, I believe,
Temptation’s gotten hold,
Money is your king ain’t got no soul,
And the blood runs cold.

Came a long lean man in black,
The weight of the world there on his back,
He’s on a one man mercy mission to the rescue and he said,
“Hail love… hail love…
People get ready, show them what love can do!
Hail love… hail love…
Devil you’re the misfit, the loser looks a lot like you!”
He said, “devil you’re the misfit, the loser looks a lot like you!”

Hell town your wicked days are numbered…
Decide… you decide,
Get down upon your knees it’s over… or collide…
You won’t win this fight, no!
Go ring the mission bells…
Believe, believe I, I believe,
God’s risen, go and tell…
Believe, believe I, I believe,
Run devil, devil run,
Get back in your place the race is run,
May the Kingdom come!

Came a long lean man in black,
The weight of the world there on his back,
He’s on a one man mercy mission to the rescue and he said,
“Hail love… hail love…
People get ready, show ’em what love can do!
Hail love… hail love…
Devil you’re the misfit, the loser looks a lot like you!”
He said, “devil you’re the misfit, the loser looks a lot like you!”
“Devil you’re the misfit, the loser looks a lot like you!”
“Devil you’re the misfit, the loser looks a lot like you!”

Believe, believe I, I believe,
Believe, believe I, I believe,
Believe, believe I, I believe,
Believe, believe I, I believe.

Mad Cat Dynamo

Download Stream

What a man, what a face, that cat’s in outer space,
Rollin’ in the old “candee”… buzzin’ like an ol’ bum’ bee,
Had to fight his Alamo, got penned in Santa Mo’,
Rollin’ in the old main street… birlin’ like an ol’ dead beat,
Ah, don’t go near just leave him alone,
He’s lovin’ it, lovin’ it.

Just like your precious one and only,
He digs old Johnny Cash, hey, that’s alright by me.

Straight ahead, Anaheim, high jinx, party time,
Nothin’ the law can do… ah, stick him in the Hollywood zoo,
But don’t go near just leave him alone,
He’s a mad cat… mad cat… mad!

He’s got that wicked vicious side,
Give him a hand, he’ll take a bite… ouch..!

They call him Mad Cat Dynamo, who’s that dead beat where’d he go?
Way down yonder with the devil and the deep blue sea…
He’s gone way down yonder with the devil and the deep blue sea!

He blew a bank in Dallas, Texas, now he’s gone, gone, gone,
Took a slow train to Memphis but then it all went wrong,
They caught him down in New Orleans,
He blew the mall to smithereens, yeah!
Just don’t meddle with the devil or the deep blue sea…
I said, just don’t meddle with the devil or the deep blue sea!

They call him Mad Cat Dynamo!
Dead beat where’d he go!
Who is that Mad Cat Dynamo… Dead beat… where’d he go?
Way down yonder with the devil and the deep blue sea…
He’s gone way down yonder with the devil and the deep blue sea…
I said, just don’t meddle with the devil or the deep blue sea!

Hillbilly girl hear that song pretty Blue Bayou,
Right here and now should I ask, would you say I do?
I’d need a hook on a line just to catch you wriggle all the time,
Tame you, hell I would rather die,
Hillbilly girl… hillbilly girl.

Big city Sam he’s on the prowl he’s got his eyes on you,
Flash with the cash he’s worth a fortune what a playboy too,
But that don’t mean a thing, you told old money bags “don’t try that again”.
That hound dog you had him on his knees…
Hillbilly girl… hillbilly girl.

Hillbilly girl, blue skies sigh above ya,
You’re as free as the birds in the trees,
And pity he who wrestles with that Wild West wind,
He’s goin’ nowhere… nowhere… hell I’ve been there,
So let me tell you ’bout…
H-I-LL-B-I-LL-Y… Hillbilly girl!
H-I-LL-B-I-LL-Y… Hillbilly girl!

H-I-LL-B-I-LL-Y… Hillbilly girl!

Bully For You!

You’re never in a mess, you’re never in a jam,
Born with a dollar in the palm of your hand,
If I say black I know you’re gonna say white,
Hell, everything that you say’s just gotta be right.

So you’re all done and dusted, well that’s good…
Bully for you!
All done and dusted, well that’s good…
Bully for you!
Ah, there ain’t no flies on, donnchadh dhu…
Bully for you!

Fat as a cat, smug as a pup,
You had your cake and you ate it all up,
We’ll get by with that humble pie,
Your like a worn out record now, give it a bye.

Now you’re all done and dusted, well that’s good…
Bully for you!
All done and dusted, well that’s good…
Bully for you!
Ah, there ain’t no flies on, donnchadh dhu…
Bully for you!

Take, take, take, it’s all about you,
If I’ve got one, I bet you gotta have two,
You’ve gotta be the top, you’ve gotta have the best,
And everybody else had better settle for the rest,
I wish you’d slip, maybe trip and a fall,
‘Cos I just can’t get a kick of the ball.

Now you’re all done and dusted, well that’s good…
Bully for you!
All done and dusted, well that’s good…
Bully for you!
Ah, there ain’t no flies on, donnchadh dhu…
Bully for you!

All done and dusted, well that’s good…

Called the job on Monday,
Can’t come in it’s the Tuesday Flu,
Y’know I’m all a wreck on a Wednesday,
Thursday is a no can do,
Friday night, a glimmer of light,
Maybe I’ll go walk the dog or maybe sink a line become a live wire,
Saturday I’m up for you!

Maybe’s on the left, crazy’s on the right, hey!
Where am I? Where am I?
A sad dog gone, pinin’ all alone, no!
I’ll find a phone booth and tear off my clothes, now gimme…

Red diesel medicine, time to shed my second skin,
A long lost rockin’ daddy, that’s me,
A rhinestone rattlesnake, dressed to kill, gonna shake ’em,
What a transformation, look see!
Now I ain’t the fly in the corner no more,
No I ain’t the guy in the corner no more.

Called the job on Monday,
Told the boss my back, my bones, are breakin’,
I need a line from the medicine man or maybe just a bottle or two…

Maybe’s on the left, crazy’s on the right, hey!

A mad dog gone, pinin’ all alone, no!
I’ll find a phone booth and tear off my clothes, now gimme…

No I ain’t the fly in the corner no more,
No I ain’t the fly in the corner no more,
No I ain’t the fly in the corner no more,
No I ain’t that guy in the corner no more.

Levengrove Park

Download Stream

I know a place, the rhythm of life is low,
Yet all around it’s a race, time to cut the net – let go,
I want to hide out, for a while out, take a little downtime,
I want to lie low, feel the breeze blow,
The sun can dance on Levenvale too.

Now you can swing, stroll, rock the baby walk don’t run,
Feel the beat in your soul, tappin’ out a slow tempo,
Over yonder, we can wander, think about the good things,
We can pretend it’s the weekend,
I don’t care if it’s Old Blue Monday.

I’ve got a lot… a castle… a rock… a bridge… a river…
My pretty girl as ever… in between… I can dream…
I’m just a walkin’ in Levengrove Park.

The birds, the bees, the flowers and the trees,
A suped-up steam boat rollin’ down the river,
As far as I see it’s a live and let be,
Dumbuck driver stay away from me!
When times are tough and I’ve had enough,
I hit that old oasis it’s the prettiest place and as a rule… so cool,
Yeah, I’m talking ’bout Levengrove Park.

I’ve got a lot… a castle… a rock… a bridge… a river…
My pretty girl as ever… in between… I can dream…
I’m just a walkin’ in Levengrove Park,
Strollin’ in Levengrove Park,
Rockin’ in Levengrove Park,
Rollin’ down Levengrove Park.

Save your lips for someone,
Your kisses I won’t waste,
For by this time tomorrow,
Sails will have set, winds of regret… blowin’.

Summer’s touch was tender,
When on your shores we played,
But dusk can hide my fear,
The bridge I’ll cross this night is near… knowin’.

Helenstown,
Helenstown,
Rhu, Ardmore, your distant lights are fadin’,
Helenstown,
Helenstown,
Glen Fruin now your sons are lost… callin’… fallin’.

Mother as I write I dare not tell you,
Those thundershells that pound… for what?
No, there’s no glory,
The signal flares are risin’,
But in my heart… I’m home.

Helenstown,
Helenstown,
Rhu, Ardmore, your distant fires are fadin’,
Helenstown,

Glen Fruin now your sons are lost… callin’… fallin’.

And when I hit it down in Nashville

Hey Véloniño!

You rumble, you tumble, you stagger, you stumble,
Tap out a rhythm or your time’s up,
A rake, a whippet, you’re right on the rivet,
10k to go now move!

Hey Véloniño! You’re rockin’ on the Alpe D’huez,
Hey Véloniño! You gotta put this race to rest,
Jump and dance on the rims… brush ’em aside,
Hey Véloniño! 10k to go now burn ’em up.

You duck, you dive, you’re still alive,
Dig deep an’ keep a rockin’ the boat,
The legs, the limbs, what a pain in the pins, ow..!
Down goes the yellow, bang, boom!

Hey Véloniño! Watch out you’re slippin’ back,
Hey Véloniño! Big guns are on the attack,
There’s that man Anquetil, he’ll skin you alive,
Hey Véloniño! 9k to go now burn ’em up.

Up at the line, it’s a good time, ah c’est beau carnival,
But down on the slopes, there’s a guy on the ropes…
Two wheel top dogs sluggin’ it out.

Skin, bone, the big unknown is the road to Paris,
Blood, sweat, get out of the red,
You’re that cat, you’re the King of the Climbs.

You rock, you roll, you’ve beat ’em all,
Don’t die you gotta get to the top,
Spin, grin, get outta the wind,
Hey, you got the maillot jaune!

Hey Véloniño! You’re rockin’ on the Alpe D’huez,
Hey Véloniño! You gotta put this race to rest,
Where’s that man Anquetil he’ll skin you alive?
Hey Véloniño! 10k to go just burn ’em up,
Hey Véloniño! 8k to go now burn ’em up,
Hey Véloniño! It’s ok to go now turn it up!

Allez!
