“WE’RE ALL HERE”

by Desmond Kelly ‘the Star of eLanka’

There is always “a first” for everything & this is a “first” for me. A “Country Song” sung by Doug Supernaw(naw, I don’t think that is his real name), however, he is a great “Country-Vocalist”& written by many, including Allen Huff, Kenny King, Justin White the IV(if you don’t mind)& Don Crider, is a song, simply about “drunks”. I have known quite a few myself & was.one, during my Royal Ceylon Navy days, as well. Talk about life, here is a song I wish I had written myself.

Good listening & on “You-Tube” for all eLanka readers.

“WELL, IT’S GOOD TO HAVE OLE BOB BACK
FOR A WHILE, WE THOUGHT HE’D FOUND HIS MIND
BUT ALL HE FOUND WAS HEARTACHE
OUTSIDE THESE WALLS
FROM FRIENDLY CONSOLATION
TO TOTAL HUMILIATION
HE AIN’T FIT FOR THE REAL WORLD, NO, NOT AT ALL

BILL TRIED TO ESCAPE US
HIS NEW WIFE THOUGHT HE’D WALK THE LINE
BUT SHE WALKED IN, TO FIND HIM HERE
ALMOST EVERY TIME
SHE HAD HIM COMMITTED
BUT THIS JURY HAS ACQUITTED
ANY WRONG,
THAT MIGHT HAVE COME FROM DOIN’ RIGHT

AND WE’RE ALL HERE, ‘CAUSE WE’RE NOT ALL THERE
SOME RAMBLE AIMLESSLY, SOME SIT & STARE
BUT THERE’S ONE THING, THAT WE ALL SHARE
WE’RE ALL HERE, ‘CAUSE WE’RE NOT ALL THERE”

AS FOR ME, I FEEL AT HOME HERE
AND I LIKE THE FOLKS WHO CARE FOR ME
CAUSE THEY DON’T CARE,
IF I’M HALF THE MAN I USED TO BE
IT’S NOT YOUR NORMAL INSTITUTION
JUST A RUNDOWN BAR IN HOUSTON
WITH A SIGN ON THE DOOR THAT PROUDLY READS,

“AND WE’RE ALL HERE, ‘CAUSE WE’RE NOT ALL THERE
SOME RAMBLE AIMLESSLY, SOME SIT & STARE
BUT THERE’S ONE THING, THAT WE ALL SHARE
WE’RE ALL HERE, ‘CAUSE WE’RE NOT ALL THERE”

What lyrics, what a song. Telling it like it is. Personally, I’ve been through it folks, , but it wasn’t a bar in Houstan,just a toddy tavern in Kochchikade.

Those were the days, I always say.
