Because Friday was too busy.
I think it was Anne O’Dyne, or perhaps Caroline, who first pointed me to this lovely YouTube of Mike Rudd in the Olden Days.
I remember listening to that song when it first came out and riding our grey mare for hours down just such country roads, alone with my thoughts (or my friend Nicky) and the sounds of the crows and magpie song and the creak of saddle leather. The coolest boys at my high school looked like Mike.
Some of the roads I rode down have kerbs and gutters now. You can never go back.
Words and chords here – the chords are all over the place, but they’ll allow you to work it out for yourself.
