😊🙌🏻😊 Woohoo!! The Fisherman’s Blues wish I was a fisherman Tumblin' on the seas Far away from dry land And it's bitter memories Casting out my sweet line With abandonment and love No ceiling bearin' down on me 'cept the starry sky above With light in my head You in my arms Woohoo! I wish I was the brakeman On a hurtlin' fevered train Crashing a-headlong into the heartland Like a cannon in the rain With the beating of the sleepers And the burnin' of the coal Counting the towns flashing by In a night that's full of soul With light in my head You in my arms Woohoo! Well I know I will be loosened From bonds that hold me fast That the chains all hung around me Will fall away at last And on that fine and fateful day I will take me in my hands I will ride on the train I will be the fisherman With light in my head You in my arms #thewaterboys#fishermansblues #nowplaying🎶🎶💕💕🎶🎶

Frances’ finger digital painting of The Waterboys at Bournemouth Pavilion. The band came to mind today with Karen’s leaving after two days of her being snowed in with us. She was in the village shop this morning and Pete behind the counter asked her about her stay, how it had gone. Karen explained about being snowed in and how she hoped to return to Swansea today by train. “Aaah” says Pete, being helpful, “no railway station in Burton.” Although she already knew this it still made her feel as though Burton Bradstock was a place that was impossible to leave. “Like Brigadoon” she said. It was through Karen and Vic that I first heard that name, thirty years ago. They’d been to a Waterboys concert and they introduced me to the cassette of ‘This Is The Sea’ and the song ‘The Whole of the Moon’ with its line ‘I saw the rain dirty valley/ you saw Brigadoon/ I saw the crescent/you saw the whole of the moon.’ The musical ‘Brigadoon ‘ first came to the stage ten years before I was born but I’d never heard of it and its legend of a magical Scottish village which appears every century. Maybe there’s been something a bit Brigadoonish about being snowed in and Karen’s stay. Late winter heavy falls are rare here...rare like Brigadoon. Or maybe Brigaburtonbradoonstock. #thewaterboys #brigadoon @karen.acton @francesahatch
