I absolutely love this song. Chords patterned after Tyrrell, god bless him!
Its black clouds scudding 'cross the midland sky
In the bedroom window, Sandy catches her eye
Full of tears as she watches the Texan's car fade away
In the distance.
He'd been tellin' her before that the mine's closing down
Soon her husband Jimmy would be home every day
The company was pullin' out he was heading back
To his own family back in Galveston
D A D
And he handed her a blue green bangle
D A G
That he found in the hills outside Slane
He said someday when this is all forgotten
You might pick it up and think of me again.
