Morgan the pirate

1971

Eén van de mooiste LPs ooit, van een verder tamelijk onbekend gebleven
artiest.

Ik heb dit liedje gekozen, maar dat hadden er ook vier of vijf andere kunnen zijn. Prachtplaat.

Iain Matthews maakte trouwens deel uit van Matthews Southern Comfort, bekend van dit Woodstock liedje (ook niet slecht):

 

 
 

Lyrics

Hello hey buddy wanna thank you for the ride.
Do
n't know how I would have made it without you.
Had to push when you got busted, had to help you get adjusted.
Had to pick up pieces after you'd been thro'.
B
ut you had to have assistance in confirming your existence
And establishing resistance to the one or two hard feelings left behind.

One or two hard feelings left behind.

It's alright brother have to thank you for the fun.
Don't know how I'll ever find my way alone.
There were all the friends around you.
There were some who claimed they found you.
And a few who helped construct your favourite role.
But you saw your queen embrace her, in the process you amaze her.
And if I may paraphrase her, there are one or two hard feelings.

There are one or two hard feelings left behind.

So sit tight buddy let me say it's been a groove.
Don't know how I'll climb this ladder by myself.
Just because it's kinda broke, it don't mean you'd overlook it.
Or expect me up above and giving hand.
After all the lights were blinking.
In the headline of your thinking, while your open eye
Was winking at the one or two hard feelings.

One or two hard feelings left behind.

Well so long brother, let me say it's been a ball.
But as long as you're still climbing I resign.
You have been an inspiration to your image's creation.
So I think I'll step outside and pass the time.
You have been at your debuting
And you're ready for renewing.
And there's no time for undoing, just the one or two hard feelings.

One or two hard feelings left behind.

It's bye bye buddy, have to say it once again.
I appreciate your velvet helping hand.
Even though you never gave it, I am sure you had to save it.
For the gestures of the friends you understand.
Now you've gotten even higher
And become your own supplier,.
And the number one denier of the one or two hard feelings.

One or two hard feelings left behind.
