'Chivalry' (by the Mekons)
"I was out late the other night
Fear and whiskey kept me going
I swore somebody held me tight
But there's just no way of knowing
I saw your face in a crowded bar
"Excuse me please!"
At least I thought it was you
Now I just don't know where you are
My suit was smart when I put it on last week
All I could remember as I walked down the street
Was the rain and tears on your face
Oh gee, I guess I'm just a disgrace"

Here's to absent friends, fallen heroes, and all the great pop songs that never were (hits that is).
The Mekons - Fear and Whiskey (1985) ; (UK post-punk, alt.country, pyschedelic rock, miner's socialism, slightly reminiscent of the Clash's Sandinista!). Highly recommended.
