Lords of Port Nelson

 

The Hodgeson sisters are out tonight

Mike and I would settle for an apple fight

or shooting pool in his father’s den

playing Floyd or Led Zeppelin

 

those were the days, I still hear them calling me

those, those were the days…

 

skipping stones down by Nelson creek

skipping school by the end of the week

Billy would say the word that was all it took

footlong dogs down at Easterbrooks

 

those were the days, I still hear them calling me

those, those were the days…

 

We were the lords of Port Nelson

We set sail on the summer wind

And we left our youth on the western shores of Lake Ontario

 

Virginia, I did you wrong

Was held up at the crossroads, was gone too long

All these years you’d think I had learned

We receive what we have earned
