See you in the spring

20 April 2003

I’d fallen onto hard times
I’d crumbled round the edges
The cheques I wrote weren’t worth the time of day
A man in my position
Must listen when the bells toll through the town

A hundred get rich quick schemes
Had dried up on the table
With the dusty flowers left there days ago
I thought of my old grandpa
He never let the worst outdo his best
I still hear his words in the air

I’ll see you in the spring
When the lights come rolling in
A dusty road will bring us back together
I’ll see you in the spring
When the lights come rolling in
A dusty road will bring us back together
I’ll see you in the spring

My grandpa knew the pitfalls
Of life on hopes and gambles
He lived through more than you and I could guess
But with the cards against him
He never let them weigh upon his chest

Clubs and spades and diamonds
Were useful in their own way
But there’s no dearer than the queen of hearts
And that’s why my old grandma
Stuck with him through all that’s thick and thin
She still hears his words in the air

I’ll see you in the spring
