Bellingham Blues/Song For Jake

Kev Gray 2010 All Rights Reserved

 

Flew over the cape this morning

Not a soul was around

Saw Mt. Olympia in all her glory

Vancouver lay there in the sound

 

Came back to find my sweetheart

Same old story from everyone

Been too long wed been apart

One too many needles and she was gone

 

Bellingham, Bellingham, Bellingham

Ever had a broken heart you'd understand

Aint Nobody got the N-N-Numaimo Blues

Just sitting here dreaming about you

 

Judge said to me give me a toke

Gotta check its the right kind of smoke

Let me tell you son, man to man

Better get away from Bellingham

 

Bellingham, Bellingham, Bellingham

Ever had a broken heart you'd understand

Everybody smells the green green grass of home

Sitting all by myself but I'm never alone

 

So I headed off to Montreal

Yeah, J'ai cherche les femmes all night long

It was a time of C'est la Vie and Ooh La La

Every goddam day was my own Mardi Gras

 

Manitoba, Saskachewan

Onto Alberta and Edmonton

Those Rocky Mountains never made me so high

Sitting by Lake Louise with a tear in my eye

 

So Back to Bellingham, Bellingham, Bellingham

Everybody got a doob pipe in their hand

Aint Nobody got the N-N-Numaimo Blues

Just sitting here dreaming about you

 

Back to back Bellingham, Bellingham, Bellingham

Ever had a broken heart you'd understand

Everybody smells the green green grass of home

Sitting all by yourself but never alone

 

.... Sitting all by yourself but never alone
