Left Hand Drive text/musik Robert Wachsmann
When we used to travel on the Irish mainland
we hoped there would be too much rain
for the terrible masses of sunfried chickens"
G D G
on the beaches of Italy and Spain.
So like many years before wed carried our packs
when the invasion came
along with thousands of stinking cars and caravans
G D G
and with aeroplanes.
We never would believe it, we never would believe it,
C G F em
we never would believe it, it wont get on our brains
oh Lord do release a holy flood
C D G
let it rain, let it rain and rain.
And when we tried to hitchhike in this crazy rush of traffic
from Bantry to Tralee
there was no time to pick us up for those people who hurry
around Ireland in only one week.
Sadly we looked at those parts of the country
where wed known almost all cliffs and rocks
now the scenery being spoiled by lots of sea-view-cottages
with No Trespassing" around each concrete box.
Ref: We never would believe it........
Sometimes we feel that even the ocean
is rebelling in foams
against all that distruction even at the loneliest places
which were never to be our homes.
Pray for a ceaseless storm that no caravans get over
eastward we will roam
cause we shall never follow these masses of people
and watch the ruin
of a country once almostd become our home.
