The Ballad of Duluth (2/2)


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


And it all will come down to Duluth,

Where they first shot me down in my youth.

Yes, my friend, in the end, when it happens again,

I will say my goodbyes to Duluth.


One more time!


Well it always comes down to Duluth,

Just the place for the cruel and uncouth.

When they ask for a blessing, just commence your undressing

You and me, bare and free,

Catching flame one two three,

We'll pollute up the skies of Duluth!


You may pour out your heart and fill up with vermouth,

But we'll never escape from Duluth!

When the Moulton returns to the beach by the glen

And the sappers respond to the sea,

When the paupe…
