Songbird Lyr Req: Here's to You (Oysterband) (5) Lyr Add: HERE'S TO YOU (Oysterband) 16 Jul 99

Heres the words, not one of their better lyrics I have to say, but good fun. From the Holy Bandits CD. Get hold of some of their records and enjoy them.

Lead singer is John Jones by the way.

Washed up in Coketown, down and halfway dead,
Holes in my pocket, holes in my head,
I was walking on water, I was staring at the blue,
I was walking down the street and I started falling through.


So here's to you, whoever you may be,
You that held me up when I was sinking in the sea,
If you were in Kiltartan, me in Katmandu,
I still would not forget you, I would do the same for you.

Half a million strangers, without a hand to lend,
Anyone I talked to, was my oldest friend,
A barman or a policeman, a lamppost or a dog,
I heard the Virgin Mary, singing in the fog.
