Filey Brigg


Didn't wanna go

But then, it's so good to be gone

 Here along the beach

The North Sea sings her song
Seagulls wake me
Make me shake the time 
Right the wrongs
Sometimes it takes a whole lot of nothing before something good comes along
Filey Brigg
Filey Brigg
Since I quit dancing with the devil
I walk upon your back instead
Beyond the dirt
In this sand and mud
Across the moors and in the hurt
We sing our song
Follow the lead of the heart
In the wild wind, 
Hear Justice call

Sometimes it takes a whole lot of nothing for something good to come along

                                                                                 
Then, 
Filey Brigg
Filey Brigg
Since I quit dancing with the devil
I walk upon your  back instead
Watch the tides
Read the news from home
Rising up on these rocks
Of the dragon's  bones
Thanks and praises
For my friends, for these changing skies 
For the sailors' song
Sometimes it takes a whole lot of nothing for something good to come along
Yeah, sometimes it takes a whole lot of nothing for something good to come along
                                                                                                
Filey Brigg
Filey Brigg
Since I quit dancing with the devil
I walk upon his/its/your back instead
Yeah, I quit dancing with the devil
Now I walk upon his back instead!

Would love to hear this song. I am an English teacher and HS football coach. Saw you in tahlequah 4 years ago. You are great. Have the 1000 pies cd.
