Lindisfarne - North Country Boy lyrics

I'm just an ordinary north country man
I had a dream that made me come here
Although naive I thought that I'd made my way
But fairweather friends is all that I had
They took from me all that I had to give,
Replenished me with their reasons
Now don't you talk to me about your sacrifice,
then asking me if I'm leaving

I'm going down to the water today
I've got to wash away my sorrow
I'm going down to the water today
Got to get me clean by tomorrow

I'm just an ordinary north country man
My dream has edges that are fading
This year that's passed its not such a waste,
Its just a hard way to be learning
We've got no choice in the lives that we're born to,
Our only choosing is in its living.
Now people in their own time will show just what they are
I hope this time I know who I am

Chorus to fade I've got to get me clean
