DOWN BY THE JETTY BLUES
(Will Birch/Dr Feelgood)
(Music also by Jimmy Reed - Omar & The Howlers: Down in Mississippi)

I'm going down by the jetty
Tonight the tide is high
It's tankers in the channel laying
Flames up in the sky

I'm going down by the jetty
(Be)fore I leave this world behind
'Cause that oil slick on the water
Is band to ease my worried mind

My face is slowly burning
My eyes are turning red
In the shadow of the refinery, baby
Tonight I'll make my bed

I'm going down by the jetty
(Be)fore I leave this world behind
(Fore I leave this world behind)
'Cause that oil slick on the water
Is band to ease my worried mind

- Harmonica and Guitar Solo -

The air is filled with poison
The sea is thick with grease
Somewhere in this hell on earth
I'll surely get some peace

With one foot on the water
And one foot on the pier
I'm ready for the next world
To get me outta here

I'm going down by the jetty
(Be)fore I leave this world behind
'Cause that oil slick on the water
Is bound to ease my worried mind

Bye bye, cruel world...

Album: PRIMO
