Lyrics & Information

From the Vagabonds of the Western World album. I don't usually do this for my other videos but since this is a song I dearly love I decided to put up some photos to accompany it. I hope you enjoy and that it reminds you of the special people close to your hearts.

Lyrics :-

In these words I wrote and play and sing for you

Do not convey the love I brought and bring to you

For this is a song for while I'm away

To say all the things I'd love to say

You are my life, my everything, you're all I have

You are my hopes, my dreams, my world come true

You're all I have

Please heed me now these words I have to say

Now I'm headed for the border

You see this song it ends right at the start

I swore when I was younger

No one would win my heart

And far away hills look greener still

But soon they'll all slip away

It's then I'll be returning

And I'll be coming home to stay

You are my life, my everything, you're all I have

You are my hopes, my dreams, my world come true

You're all I have

Please heed me now these words I have to say

RIP Phil, gone 29 years ago today but you remain as fresh as ever in our minds but especially our hearts. The rocker, the vagabond, a true poet. Rest in peace Philo.

Love all the early Lizzy stuff. It's more Phil the poet than Phil the rocker. Thanks for posting!

Yes I believe it was. It appeared on Side 2 of Vagabonds of the Western World LP released in 1973, the last commercial new album which Eric Bell would appear on (discounting re-releases and box sets), and also the last on Decca record label (info Wikipedia)
