DON'T GIVE UP Released on: 'The Battle of North West Six" 1970

(Written by: Hewitson, James, Hartley, Thain)

I could not make it without you
I've got no reason to doubt you
you can light my way
but it's getting harder every day

don't give up
don't give up
don't give up

cause I can't make it
don't be ashamed of what you're doing
cause if you've left me you know that it woudl be my ruin

I can't make it on my own
I'm like a dog without a bone

don't give up
don't give up
don't give up

'cause I can't make it
there's many things that we can do and see
it's easy done if you will just stick by me
it can be so easily done
two heads are better than one

don't give up
don't give up
don't give up

'cause I can't make it




WAITING AROUND Released on: 'The Battle of North West Six" 1970

(Written by: Hewitson, James, Hartley, Thain)

You could bestow me with your lies
Lord knows how you tried
and you have many friends
to back up all your lies

yesterday you took me by surprise
I couldn't take it in
'cause I've done nothing wrong
and brought no one no harm

making promises for keeping
though I've never asked you for more
but please don't change them with the seasons
'cause seasons they fade and they die

so don't leave me waiting
no don't you let my light fade
try to change your way
don't leave me in the shade

cause I am so alone
and I ain't got me no one
I am just sitting here on my own
I am just waiting around
for you to call me

 

POOR MABEL Released on: 'The Battle of North West Six" 1970

(Written by: Hewitson, James, Hartley, Thain)

you're getting older now
your eyes are growing dim
your hearing ain't so good
that's caused by the gin

even your poor hair
it ain't as blue as it used to be
through your green eyelids
tell me what can you see

no one will notice you
as you walk through
and there won't be nobody there for you

well I wonder if there'll come a time
when I am like that myself
43 years old
and stored high on a shelf

now Mabel can you hear me
I'm worried for your safety
you been sitting there for 4 years straight
I know what's causing it

you pluck your legs you paint your eyes
and you dye your hair blue
and still there won't be
 no one there for you

you look like a fortune
that's behind the bar
smiling at the handful
my how cute they are

maybe one will love you
and take you for his own
but it seems more likely
that you'll wind up in some home

yes I think I likely
be like you myself
but if I can face it
I'll sit happy on my shelf

'cause growing old is one thing
but facing it is worse
so I let old age take me
or let it be my curse




BELIEVE IN YOU Released on: 'The Battle of North West Six" 1970

(Written by: Hewitson, Hartley, Thain)

someday I like to walk on
on my own
feel the wind
but hear no man's voice

some men say
that there is no peace
while others moan
that there is no choice

I can feel
that it's fatal fate
the race is run now
who will be last

I can't let it be me
who is to say
how it will be

who amongst us are
to say what's really true
so can you help me to win

watch the children singing
forget about this race
this glory of joy and winning

I can't challenge my destiny
the world will turn around
without me

there is no reason to change it
and I may have felt
to re-arrange it

who am I to wonder
to say what was really true
all you gotta do

is just believe
