John Otway - A413 Revisited

Song Rating: 8.20/10

Song lyrics:

Gonna drift on down to the county town
The place where I was born
Gonna ask my childhood sweetheart
To tell me how Ive done
I always used to worry a lot
About what Id become
I guess its really only her
Who will know if I have won

Theres a reunion at the Grange County Secondary School
Where theres a bunch of us
Thrown together at a formative age
We couldnt pa** our 11+
Strange lesson at the age of eleven
To find that life aint chance
And if at first you dont succeed
Youve already been a failure once

From Amersham, to Missenden, to Wendover, to the Vale of Aylesbury
Thats me, heading down the 413
From Amersham, to Missenden, to Wendover, to the Vale of Aylesbury
Thats me, heading down the 413



Im gonna wander into the Bell Hotel
At the bottom of the market square
Ill ask the girl behind the bar
If they still do bands in there
Ill tell her Ive written something new
Can I get my guitar
There might be someone who remembers me
From 1974

The Bucks Herald is the local paper
Serving the community
Im gonna ask the editor
If theyll do a piece on me
I can say that Ive had some new photos done
And Im sure Ive got some archive stuff
I guess they will do something
If a hit gets high enough

From Amersham, to Missenden, to Wendover, to the Vale of Aylesbury
Thats me, heading down the 413
From Amersham, to Missenden, to Wendover, to the Vale of Aylesbury
Thats me, heading down the 413
(repeat Γ—2)
