Not my style so I didn't have it on my database. It's on Mike's "One For You" cassette available from New Zealand "Replay Radio'

INVERCARGILL by Wayne Gillespie

That's right, there's a car for sale
It's in good condition and motor is running
It was my wife's before she went away
She went to live in Invercargill

It's got everything you could ever need
It's got bucket seats and the tyres they're radial
Never said a word, I never thought she'd leave
I just found a note on the kitchen table

Don't really know what I can say
The engine's small but it's got tons of power
I know that we will never be the same
Once we could do a hundred miles an hour

Starts well on a winter's day
Seats look like leather but they're only vynil
She come home an see the kids in May
But soon went back to Invercargill

Did everything I could to make her stay
I even got a warrant of fitness
It's been a year now since she went away
She wouldn't even come home for Christmas

That's right there's a car for sale
It's got a little rust but it's really not too bad
Every day I check the mail
But it takes a long time from Invercargill

Cheers, Jack
