Original Songs by Graham "Buz" Baker


The Shores of Nova Scotia - Graham S Baker

On the shores of Nova Scotia that's where I want to be
Where the thundering surf is pounding and the seagulls scream with glee
Where the surging tide is lifting sparkling waters in the bay
And the granite rocks are grinding when the sea swells sweep away

Refrain

Where wooden houses face the sea the salt spray clouds the dawn
And you live a life each and every day 'till the sun goes crashing down

I long to walk along the beach on silvery shifting sand
To see the pines and windswept spruce clinging to the land
Where blueberries and cranberries and bogs of lily pads
Adorn the golden meadows and the emerald pasture lands

Refrain

Where the wind is free and a man can be in perfect harmony
And time is but a fleeting dream of love and family

Destiny is calling me to a rockbound sheltered cove
Where the lobster boats ply to and fro and supper's on the stove
Where two brown eyes will greet me where roses crowd the door
And children speak their little rhymes and roll upon the floor

Refrain

For in my heart I know I 'll find the woman of my dreams
To share my life for evermore on Nova Scotia's shore

Lyrics: Graham Baker, November 1999, Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia




Hungry Man Blues - Music & Lyrics by Graham S Baker

When I get up in the morniní Iím a hungry man
When I get up in the morniní Iím a hungry man
But my moneyís all gone
I gottaí put out my hand

Well Iíve got a guitar Iíve got 500 songs
Oh Iíve got a guitar Iíve got 500 songs
Put a bottle on the table
Friend you canít go wrong
Iíll do a little Hank Snow or maybe Johnny Cash
Yea sing a little Hank Snow or maybe Johnny Cash
If you like Jimmy Rodgers
Friend this is your chance
(yodel)

Well a man needs a woman when the sun goes down
Oh a man needs a woman when the sun goes down
The nights are cool and the blues creep around
Well I found a woman up in Halifax
Yah I found a woman up in Halifax
She gave me what I needed now brother thatís a fact
( love & affection)

Then I met her sister she said she loved me too
Then I met her sister she said she loved me too
But when I met their mama
It was more than I could chew.
(yodel)

(Always take you business to a well-established firm)




Lose the Blues - Music & Lyrics by Graham S Baker, November 26, 1999

My baby left me one cold night
We had a loverís quarrel, a little fight
She said Iím through with you and I donít care what you do
She left me alone with the blues

Iím all alone with the blues
Theyíre all around, they fill my shoes
Sheís with another man, thatís something I canít stand
What can I do to lose the blues

Chorus:
How fast must I go to lose the blues
How far is that place where I can choose
Someone whoíll ease my mind an forget that gal of mine
O what can I do to lose the blues

The blues surrounds me every day
It donít matter what my friends all say
I smoke and drink and eat, and try to get some sleep
But the blues are always in my way

I drink down at my favourite bar
Where the women all greet you with a smile
I shout and dance and sing, but I donít feel a thing
Thatís how it goes when you got the blues

Repeat Chorus Two/Four Time..boom chickie..Fast Tempo
