Before Gas & TV

Before gas and tv
before people had cars
we'd sit around the fires
pass around our guitars

Remembering songs
when my daddy was home
he'd play along
on the spoons and a comb

We'd go with the flow
when the weather was fine
sometimes we'd go
collecting scrap iron

And we'd sit around the fires
pass a bottle of wine
in the tales of the road
since time out of mind

If heaven's like this
well that's OK with me
where the living is fine
and living is free

If heaven's like this
well then here's where I'll be
on the edge of the field
on the edge of the world
before gas and tv.

Look:

"man's broken down
man's broken down
on the slip road
got a slip load
and it's a hard shoulder
to cry on"

after "slip road" is "slip load",

mistake ?

Oh, sorry, maybe it's "slipped load"  -   his load slipped off.  It's a bit metaphorical!   :-\

Yes, just had another listen - definitely "slipped load" !   ;)

In England we have morris dancers who dance around a maypole, which has coloured ribbons hanging from the top and the morrismen, or other folk also, hold the ends of the ribbons and twist and weave under and over, around the maypole on the village green, to music.  It happens usually on May Day, or to celebrate Midsummer.
