Commentary

Comments from the “Natural Selection” liner notes (by Mark Seymour):

Labour relations down at the depot. This cover of a Ronnie Lane song given a slightly wistful Hunters swagger.

 

Lyrics

You know I left you on the debris
At the Sunday morning market
You were sorting through the odds and ends
You were looking for a bargain

I heard your footsteps at the front door
And that old familiar love song
Cause you knew you’d find me waiting there
At the top of the stairs

I’ve been there and back
Just to see how far it was
And you, you tried to tell me
All I had to learn for myself

There’s more trouble at the depot
With the general workers union
And it’s said they’ll never change a thing
Oh, they won’t fight, they’re not working

Oh you were my hero
Now you are my good friend
I’ve been there and back
And I know how far it is

And I left you on the debris
Now we both know we got no money
And I wonder what you would have done
Without me hanging around

 

[Ronnie Lane]
