Hey Sorcha that was mighty fast. Thanks just what I needed. Would you think I was cheeky if I asked you about where I could find Lonnie Donigan ( i think that's How you spell it) music, another artist I am having problems finding lyrics and chords for.:)

OK, caz, first thing you do is go to the Main Forum (thread index)page. See the white box on the left called DT and Forum Search? Type in Lonnie Donegan and hit go. There will be a LOT of threads to choose from.

Which songs in particular are you looking for? You can type the titles in the same box also. There are none actually in the DT, but there may be some in the threads.

OK, don't know if Lonnie's version is same, but search for Waly Waly. There are 2 versions in the DT. I think Does Your Chewing Gum....is here somewhere. If not, I have it bookmarked.

You can hear this song at YouTube:


I WANT TO SEE THE BRIGHT LIGHTS TONIGHT
As sung by Linda Thompson

1. I'm so tired of working ev'ryday.
Now the weekend's come, I'm gonna throw my troubles away.
If you've got the cab fare, mister, you'll do alright.
I want to see the bright lights tonight.

CHORUS: Meet me at the station. Don't be late.
I need to spend some money and I just won't wait.
Take me to the dance and hold me tight.
I want to see the bright lights tonight.

2. There's crazy people runnin' all over town.
There's a silver band just marchin' up and down,
And the big boys are all spoilin' for a fight.
I want to see the bright lights tonight. CHORUS

3. A couple of drunken nights rollin' on the floor
Is just the kind of mess I'm lookin' for.
I'm gonna dream 'til Monday comes in sight.
I want to see the bright lights tonight. CHORUS

Take me to the dance and hold me tight.
I want to see the bright lights tonight.


[Chords and partial lyrics can be found in another thread.]
