lyrics

South-East Cemetery
J. Sule/G. Rogers

There’s a place that is not dead centre
Though many stay there once they have entered
South-East of the City, out by the sea

Took a walk through my favourite haunt
Met the undertaker out for a jaunt
Like a bat out of hell in his long, black hearse

Bridge
Like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell in his long, black hearse

Chorus
There’s no rest at the South-East Cemetery
There’s no peace – hold onto your sanity
Lock your cars at the South-East cemetery
And close the gates

Carried on past the dogs with their owner
Past the dealers selling stuff to the stoners
Digging up the dirt looking for the bones

Up ahead beneath a clump of trees
Lovers meet surreptitiously
Who would ever think to find them here?

Bridge
Things are heating up
Things are heating up in the cold graveyard

Chorus – There’s no rest…

Harper, Willis, McCartney and Craven
All at rest in their concrete haven
Died in the year of nineteen-fifty-one

On her knees was a grief-stricken mourner
Unaware – cos no-one had warned her
Purse was stolen from out of her unlocked car

Bridge
South-East of the city
South-East of the city, out by the sea

Chorus

about

Both Sides of the Line Dunedin, New Zealand

Both Sides of the Line's cd, Sideshow, is " a record chock full of slinky country tunes, built upon 21st Century ‘adult contemporary’ bones. Digging a little beneath the surface you will find cooing swing come-ons here (Magical Man), fleeting touches of Americana there (Macs General Store), rockabilly beats and soft rock tendencies throughout." (Ricardo Kerr, NZ Musician). ... more
