Words & Music by Gas Wylde [aka Richard Lawson]


How, how how
How, how, how?
Did we both feel the same thing dividing us all
When along the winding road it's faded out
So I stood, and I watched, and I recalled
How it beat us down and nearly broke us all

Strange old thing, what a strange old thing this dying day
Strange old thing, strange old thing this dying day...

Well I knew how you felt, when you saw what you'd done
And I swear to God my father's ghost walked between us
So I watched while you cried by the side of the road
And he wanted to come on down to ease your load
Chorus: Strange old thing...
I got a taste, I got a taste of the one true fear
Saw it in your eyes when I went off my brain
I'll never do that to you, I'll never drag you under with me
Strange old thing this dying day, what a strange old thing!
Strange old thing this dyin' day... strange, how, how how
Chorus: What a strange old thing, strange old thing this dyin' day
Dyin' day, dyin' day, dyin' day...

Excerpt from music blog review of GWB's ‘Last Man Out’ from the most recent altcountryforum in the Netherlands.

"The great strength of the Gas Wylde Band’s "Last Man Out" is the fact that the politically critical words are supported by patiently crafted musical compositions. A brilliant album from a promising band based on Australian soil. Finger-licking good.”
