G'day Amergin,

It's in The Eric Bogle Songbook ... one of them ... in this case, the Music Sales MS1009 version (no date!). I don't have an OCR scan facility on this box ... I'll get around to installing one when I go off-line ... and, maybe I'll also key in the music and post it along with the song.

Regards,

Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: JUST NOT COPING (Eric Bogle)
From: Bob Bolton

G'day again Amergin,

Here is the lyric, from The Eric Bogle Song Book:

Just Not Coping
Words and music © Eric Bogle

1/
I'm glad that you can't see me darlin'.—
I'm glad you didn't write or call,
You would have seen how much I'm changing
I'm just not coping well at all.
Sorry if I hurt you darling —
Can't begin to explain it all —
In a spin with the devil driving —
I'm just not coping well at all.

2/
They tell me life begins a t forty.
Well, if that's true I hope life crawls
For on the down-ward slide fro thirty
I'm just not coping well at all.
Dreams all gone and lovers leaving —
Battles lost beyond recall —
No heroes left I can believe in
I'm just not coping well at all.

3/Tthe house is quiet since you left me.
'Cause there's no love within its walls
Only the lonesome sound of empty
In to the silence falls.
Other men can lose their lovers —
Bounce back like a rubber ball —
I'm just not like those other —
I'm just not coping well at all.

4/ (Different part of tune)
Look at my life, it's turning away from me
And I've not become the man that I once hoped I'd be.
Look at my life — it's just an empty sham
All that trouble and pain just to be what I am.

Repeat Verse 3 to finish

And here is the tune rendered into Alan of Oz's MIDItext program, from which you can reconstitute a MIDI file (and read an ABC version of the notation).
