about

To my beautiful wife, thank you for your love, patience & support.

lyrics

When the band has played
And the crowd gone home
When the lights go out
And I’m on my own
That’s when the aching starts
As I think of her
Oh the widow of a travelling man

Tonight the crowd went wild
And they cried “one more”
How the room it shook
On that wooden dance floor
But they left me here
And I’m coming down
Oh the widow of a travelling man

As she lays there on our bed
Am I floating ‘round her head?
I wish I could hold her hand
Is this work or is this war?
‘cos there’s a cost for every chord
Maybe you might understand
Oh the widow of a travelling man

I long to hear her voice
On that telephone line
But it makes it worse
Each and every time
‘cos when she says my name
the distance is more real
Oh the widow of a travelling man

As she lays there on our bed
Am I floating ‘round her head?
I wish I could hold her hand
Is this work or is this war?
‘cos there’s a cost for every chord
Maybe you might understand
Oh the widow of a travelling man
