Subject: song about Weymouth Bay
From: Big Al Whittle

Its an autobiographical song . I take a lot of pleasure drinking milky coffee. Sitting in the Oasis café Weymouth staring out at the savage splendour of the sea. However I do feel a bit of a fraud. Recently three young fishermen were killed following their hazardous profession. The pub at which the folk club in Weymouth is held is called The Sailors Return. At their wake three drinks were left on the harbour wall for their return. Somehow it was very moving. Because the sea had taken them. Their relationship with sea as so much more vital than that of the silly old man sitting there in the café. and yet it is he who is alive - feeling something of a fraud. Hope you like the song.

Enjoyed listening to that - I love Weymouth and did this song about 4 or 5 years ago about an imaginary sailor thinking about his days at sea - there was also a pub called "The Sailors Return" at East Chaldon up on the downs that I remember well:-
