Song Description

What a waste . . .

Broadjam Member Reviews

James Neilson Graham has the heart and soul of a 19th century poet. His imagery and music were a time machine that took me back to 1917 and WWI. His vocal and lyric were authentic to the time period.

    - Robert Dellaposta - Broadjam Pro Reviewer

Loved this! great storytelling and lovely chord progression and finger style guitar. Extremely original in style and performance, confident and easy delivery, loved every second of it. The lilt of tempo in both guitar and vocal works particularly well as a narrative device......GREAT, thanks, you've made my night. Good luck!

Lyrics

Bye bye, my Whitstable Girl,
Lord knows, we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl;
What else could we have done?

Remember those halcyon days in May
When all our cares seemed to fade away,
Two love-birds merrily making hay
Underneath the sun.

Bye bye, my Whitstable girl,
Lord knows, we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl;
What else could we have done?

High tide o'er-topping the harbour wall,
The fate of nations too close to call.
Lord only knows where the dice will fall;
Lives lost and won.

Bye bye, my Whitstable girl,
Lord knows, we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl;
What else could we have done?

Thick fog enveloping Abbeville,
Despatches feeding the rumour mill;
My love said, who is there left to kill?
Answer came there none.

Bye bye, my Whitstable girl,
Lord knows, we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl;
What else could we have done?
Why, girl, what else could we have done?
