about

Lyrics written circa 1980 as a personal emotional outpouring.

lyrics

Working all day
Iin a long hot summer
Got no money
And what’s for another
I’m leaving you along the line
Leaving you to ease my mind
Leaving you to ease my mind
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black

Playing around in a band
Relive some rock’n’roll if we can
Keep our feet on the road
Won’t get tied down by no rope
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black

Working all day in a long hot summer
Got no money and what’s for another
Baby’s gone said she had wasted her time
Took all my money and left not a dime
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black

Playing around in a band
Relive some rock’n’roll if we can
Keep our feet on the road
Won’t get tied down by no rope
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black

I wonder where it’s leading me
I wonder where I go
I may not be covered in riches
But I’ll have the wealth of al I know
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black
Paint me black

about

KCJ RAR York, UK

Independent artist, song creator and musician
KCJ RAR Project Retoons, recreating songs I wrote as a wannabe back in the 1970's and 80's. Now home recording guitars and virtual instruments to create classic rock numbers that never were; symphonic prog epics that could have been; and avant-garde psychedelic art rock grooves that surely fill a gap in music history today? Maybe not, but lots of fun! ... more
