Thurnscoe rain


Tekst en Muziek: Ray Hearne
Bewerking Muziek: Coope, Boyes and Sim

She is standing at the busstop down the High street
A broken shopping trolley at her feeeeeet
She is calling to her kids but they're not listening
They are dancing round and round in the Thurnscoe rain

She is wond'ring where the two two six has got to
An empty Coal Board wagon soaks her through
As if all the years of giving without taking
were culminating in the Thurnscoe rain

Our Elaine, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine
Our Elaine, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine

She is sick of feighning pleasure at the busstop
Sick of bargainqueues and cheapo shooops
She is sick of penny pinching on the giro
And who can blame her in the Thurnscoe rain

Till the anger like a blister bursts inside her
Winter rants and rages down the Dearne
Tomorrow like a secondhand shop window
Dissolving in an endless Thurnscoe rain

Our Elaine, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine
Our Elaine, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine

Once upon a young dream
she wore summers in het hair
Lover's arms were all that she'd need
Circling the square
Summers in her hair

Our Elaine, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine
Our Elaine, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine
nothing lasts forever, our Elaine

Missing a final stanza (between 'summer's in her hair' and 'Our Elaine')

Now the broken shopping trolley's still there waiting
The kids are laughing, splashing everything
She turns the corner, calls and they come running
And they walk home hand in hand in the Thurnscoe rain.

Also one minor correction to the version aboveWhile thewinter rants and rages etc.

Musically I like the CBS version best, but it would be unfair to Ray not to include what he wrote.

Taken from the sleeve insert of Ray's 'Broad Street Ballads', NoMasters NMCD17

The 'arse that Jack Built - over a year left to listen.

Ian McMillan and Ray Hearne go in search of an isogloss.

Ian McMillan also wrote about the 226, which runs between Barnsley and Rotherham, in Workshop Days 1981/83;

"Outside, I saw my 226 rumble by, which meant I'd have another half an hour to wait in the raw night."

Not a lot of people know that.
