The Blantyre Blues

From The Album “It’s Only Me“by local man Jim Donnelly, there’s a song on there called “The Blantyre Blues“. Its done well over the years featuring well in charts.

The lyrics are as follows:

Blantyre Blues

Born on the Coatshill delta grew up with holes in my shoes
hung around every street corner there was
i was smoking and drinking the booze
on the road to destruction fast oh i was living the way that i new
oh oh i woke up in the morning Yeh
i got the Blantyre blues

even if i could have i Dont think i would have changed what i done
everything that could have normally always would have
turned out so wrong  
but i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long

way back then on the corner lower north side of Millands
anything goes when your hanging around
somethings could get out of hand
times they have changed and the faces are new
gone are the days and the things we would do
but i woke up in the morning Yeh
i got the Blantyre blues

even if i could have i Dont think i would have changed what i done
everything that could have normally always would have 
turned out so wrong 
but i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long

but i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long
Yeh i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long
Yeh i’ve been walking these streets walking these streets so long


Always wanting to showcase talent like this on Blantyre Project, I’ve ensured Jim has been entered into “Blantyre Explained”, a forthcoming definitive Blantyre book.
