Does anyone know where I can find the lyrics to Richard Farina's "Morgan The Pirate?" I've searched the web in vain for a long time. Thanks

Oh my ! what a great song! This s off the top of my head, but maybe it'll get the gang rolling.

So long buddy Thank you for the ride Don't know how you --- --- --- to survive.

Took your time to get adjusted and the feelings that got busted

only one or two hard feelings left behind

Oh Gawd - that's awful ! not even approximate.

Amazing how memory can fail after thirty years.

This was a very big favourite song and I do remember a sudden realization back then that Farina may have written the song about Bob Dylan!?

Since I haven't smoked dope for twenty years, I am a bit sheepish about my lack of long term memory - but this possible connection of Farina's "Morgan" to Dylan was very real in 1972.

Any thoughts??

MORGAN THE PIRATE

Hello hey buddy wanna thank you for the ride
Don't know how I would have made it without you
Had to push when you got busted had to help you get adjusted
Had to pick up pieces after you'd been thro'
But you had to have assistance in confirming your existence
And establishing resistance to the one or two hard feelings left behind

One or two hard feelings left behind

It's alright brother have to thank you for the fun
Don't know how I'll ever find my way alone
There were all the friends around you
There were some who claimed they found you
And a few who helped construct your favourite rôle
But you saw your queen embrace her, in the process you amaze her
And if I may paraphrase her there are one or two hard feelings

There are one or two hard feelings left behind

So sit tight buddy let me say it's been a groove
Don't know how I'll climb this ladder by myself
Just because it's kinda broke it don't mean you'd overlook it
Or expect me up above and giving hand
After all the lights were blinking
In the headline of your thinking, while your open eye
Was winking at the one or two hard feelings

One or two hard feelings left behind

Well so long brother let me say it's been a ball
But as long as you're still climbing I resign
You have been an inspiration to your image's creation
So I think I'll step outside and pass the time
You have been at your debuting
And you're ready for renewing
And there's no time for undoing just the one or two hard feelings

One or two hard feelings left behind

It's bye bye buddy have to say it once again
I appreciate your velvet helping hand
Even though you never gave it I am sure you had to save it
For the gestures of the friends you understand
Now you've gotten even higher
And become your own supplier
And the number one denier of the one or two hard feelings

One or two hard feelings left behind


Richard Fariña. (Warner Bros., ASCAP) Given without punctuation, as printed in the sleeve-notes to Ian Matthews' album If You Saw Through My Eyes (Vertigo VEL1002; early 1970s.)

Malcolm, THANKS!!!!!!! Been looking for a long time.

And yes, CB - it was written about Dylan and Farina's falling out, as Dylan's Positivly 4th Street was...or so went the stories back in the mid -ish 60s.

Thanks again, Malcolm.
