The Jez Lowe song. A Google search yielded no lyrics, I have no JL CDs and I can't hear the words on the Youtube clips because the audio quality n this laptop is abysmal. THanks, punters

I bought the CD and got the song from that, lots of others too.

We all owe Jez a great deal and he's the genuine article

Found em think I learned it back in 1991

The weary winter had me back on the streets,of the tired old town I was born in
And my hungry heart was only happy to meet , the girl I'ld left for me fortune

ch:
But now she's another man's wife
A hard drinking man's wife
They reckon I'm dicing with life
It'll only bring me trouble and strife


perhaps you ought to sign up to the cat?

I'm performing at the Loughton Folk Club on Thursday 15th of May

Thanks Breezy. I had actually worked out the chorus and most of verse 1. Now I need t'other 4.
I would come and see yer at Loughton this month but I'm about 20 thousand kms away.
Yes I will sign up to Mudcat. Ta, Simon

No connection then with the song appearing in Passiontide oratorios (based on John 15:13) which I have to control myself not to miss-sing:
"Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his wife for his friend"

Another Man's Wife - Jez Lowe

The weary winter had me back on the streets,
Of the tired old town I was born in.
And my hungry heart was only happy to meet,
The girl I'ld left for me fortune.

Chorus:
But now she's another man's wife,
A hard drinking man's wife.
They reckon I'm dicing with life,
It'll only bring me trouble and strife.

She was shining out like a light in the night,
By the harbour wall where we’d linger.
The girl I’d left for the big and the bright,
With another man’s ring on her finger.

The man she married is a clown and a curse,
A fearsome fighter and drinker.
He runs around with other women and worse,
Not a penny of wages he gives her.

He’s out to get me ‘cos her husband he says,
There’s parts of me I’ll be losing.
I’m not a coward but I’d rather they stay,
Down here where I know I can use them!

Sad eyes have never stained a prettier face,
I curse the day that I left her.
But forbidden fruit is much better to taste
And one day we’ll taste it together.



5 years late, but it's there for anyone in future.
