Song Story for Back in Winter Town
In 1970, Steve Harrison (drummer of the Coventry band - The Mick Green Blues Band - later with L'homme de Terre in the 80's) ask me to write some lyrics for the Mick Green Band. Back in Winter Town was one of them. In Middlesbrough 1985, I put together this cassette demo, playing all the instruments with a different feel - Synth bass, keys and acoustic guitar / multi-tracked vocals - with a view to my little band developing the song. However the demo got used for my 2007 Gnome Label album ' Songs from the Coventry Underground'. It's a bit unusual I think about that searching we all do - could be love or fame or whatever but when you find it - it dazzles you and you're Back in Winter Town again! Vid hosts some of my photos - 

BACK IN WINTER TOWN
I persevered through
Persistent rain
Believing that the sun must shine.
Through the thunder clouds,
I kept my head
Wishing that the sun would shine.
I was isolated
by deep frozen snow
Believing that the sun would shine.
And the sun did shine,
and it shone so bright
that it dazzled me.

Chorus
And the rain came down
Now I’m back in Winter Town
And the rain came down
Now I’m back in Winter Town

(Bridge)
I'm a child of the snow. I'm a child of the snow. I'm a child of the snow

I dug my way through fields of hurt
Believing I would find the key.
Through the gates of pain,
I kept my head
Believing I would find the key.
I was left alone,
In that nowhere zone
Believing that the key I'd find
And the key did shine
and it shone so bright
that it dazzled me.

Chorus
And the rain came down
Now I’m back in Winter Town
And the rain came down
Now I’m back in Winter Town.

(Bridge repeat)
