Words 
----- 

Half an hour, change your strings and tune up 
Sizing the room up, checking the bar 

Local girls, unspoken conversation 
Misinformation, plays guitar 

They say Jonah he was swallowed by a whale, 
But I say there's no truth to that tale 
I know Jonah, he was swallowed by a song 

No one gives their dreams away too lightly 
They hold them tightly, warm against cold 

One more year of travelling round the circuit 
Then you can work it into gold 

They say Jonah he was swallowed by a whale, 
But I say there's no truth to that tale 
I know Jonah, he was swallowed by a song 

Here's to all the boys who came along 
Carrying soft guitars and cardboard cases 
All night long 
Do you wonder where those boys have gone? 
Do you wonder where those boys have gone?
