I am seeking the lyrics of Ray Hearne's 'Song for David', a song about an autistic lad. Can anyone save me the trouble of transcribing them? There is a video of Roy Bailey performing it on Youtube - not the best sound quality, but worth a listen.

Song for David.

Yep, here you go.

SONG FOR DAVID
(Ray Hearne)

There was a lad, a ranting lad.
Galavanting Galahad.
Run around about town lad,
Daily duffel-coated.

Summer sings me songs, he said
Autumn is the cruellest season
Winter has its reason
Spring might bring love David.

Theres a juke box jungle in my head
Music gets you girls, I read
DJ's think I'm sick he said
Dylan's most devoted.

Summer sings me songs, he said
Autumn is the cruellest season
Winter has it's reasons
Spring might bring love David.

It's a DIY world by your choice
Poor folk still pay highest price
Too many hearts cold as ice
Too few even notice

Summer sings me songs, he said
Autumn is the cruellest season
Winter has it's reasons
Spring might bring love David.


The emptiness of endlessness
The endlessness of emptiness
They just don't like my face I guess
Poetry is hopeless.

Summer sings me songs, he said
Autumn is the cruellest season
Winter has it's reasons
Spring might bring love David.

Well you can't do right for doing wrong
Some folks try too hard too long
Why don't you stick that in your song
Once I dreamed I'd write songs

Summer sings me songs, he said
Autumn is the cruellest season
Winter has it's reasons
Spring might bring love David.

Again refrain

Great in open G on guitar.

Al
