Danny Blackwell - A Song About Woodsetts

I grew up near the woods
The setting was alright for me
We moved there when my parents split up
The future would just wait and see

In Woodsetts, strangers smiled as they passed
In Woodsetts, where my dreams ran so fast

We did lot's of good things
And sometimes things that were wrong
But the bad trips and mushrooms we swallowed
I won't mention here in this song

In Woodsetts, the boy racers would ride
In Woodsetts, only speed was their guide
Hell, I didn't believe in religion, joined the church anyway
Just to get the free tea and biscuits at the end of the day

Sometimes they'd let our band practice
In the recreation ground
We'd turn up our amps to 11
With no neighbours nowhere around

In Woodsetts, where my mum took me in
She got angry if I drank all her gin
But she'd let me and my friends drink there all night
Said, as long as she could hear our voices she was alright.
All together we would play
Avoid the fights and smoke away
The girls in the fields with dreams in their eyes
And we were searchin' for songs 'tween their thighs

I grew up in Woodsetts!
