Backwater (Hammersmith Apollo, London 15th-16th March 2013) - Lyrics

Down at Backwater junction rolling down the line
In the dark early morning I heard the one-forty-nine
I was walking down the highway, needed somewhere to go
A lady laid beside me and she invited me home
She led me cold, tired and hungry down the backwater road

In a house on the corner looking over the track
I woke up with a fever and a pain in my back
She was lying there beside me, my fever started to grow
Had a funny feeling but the lady said no
My lover needs a doctor down the Backwater Road

Whatcha lookin' for, whatcha lookin' for
Lady do you know what cha' lookin' for
Was I wrong to play along?
Lady was I right or lady was I wrong?

Backwater doctor, you've got me breathing in time
It's ten-thirty in the morning and I'm feeling alright
I went back to my lady but I wasn't to know
Lady left this morning and she's not coming home
I was cold when she left me down the Backwater Road

Writer(s): Richard John Parfitt, Alan Charles Lancaster
