lyrics

Oh I wish had leather skin so I wouldn't get hurt,
Fall in love a million times, roll in the dirt
Oh I wish an easy mind that went with the wind,
Then I wouldn't really mind if I didn't have a friend!
Oh I wish I had a simple life like the man in the moon
Travellin' around everywhere with just a cow and a spoon,
I wish I had somethin' new took away time
Made everybody in the world feel warm and kind!
Hold me tight! Baby I gotta go in the night
Hold me still babe, c'mon hold me still...
Yeah I wish I had a simple life like the man in the moon
Oh travellin' around everywhere with just a cow and a spoon,
Yeh I wish I had somethin' new, that took away time
I wish I had leather skin 'round this poor man's mind!
Wish I had leather skin so I wouldn't get hurt
Yeah, fall in love a million times, roll in the dirt,
Yeah I wish I had somethin' new took away time
Made everybody in the world feel warm and kind!
Oh oh woh, I gotta go in the night!
Hold me still, let pure love fill the air,
Let pure love fill the air!
There's one more thing I wish...
I wish I had leather skin so I wouldn't get hurt
Fall in love a million times, roll in the dirt,
Yeah I wish had leather skin! Wish I had leather skin!
Yeah, wish I had leather skin! Wish I had leather skin!
I wish I had a million suns boiling in my heart,
Yeah wish I had a million suns blazin' in my heart...

Gas & the General Sydney, Australia

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.”
