A Line is a Line (Live at the QEH Bristol)

about

This was recorded at the QEH Theatre in Bristol in the early 2000s when it was a regular part of my set. Unlike it’s more famous London namesake, QEH stands for Queen Elizabeth Hospital and is a private school in the heart of Bristol, £15K per annum, meals not included. It has a gorgeous little ‘theatre in the round’ which can be hired and don’t ask me who hired it because I can’t remember. I think I was the only one on the bill that night and we had a good crowd in, as you can hear!

lyrics

A Line Is A Line

Tuning: Open G (Slide) Strings (6-1) DGDGD No Capo Key G

Well pride that’s a wonderful thing
It makes a poor man feel like a king
Makes him stand 10 foot tall
Over triumph great and small
Well pride that’s a wonderful thing

But when you’re drowning a line is a line
When you’re drowning a line is a line
Do you worry who’s hand
Pulls you up on to dry land
When you’re drowning a line is a line

Well fame’s like a star in the night
The world looks up, and you’re in sight
No matter what you’re like inside
You’ll always get a free ride
Well fame’s like a star in the night

But when you’re drowning a line is a line.....

Well money, that’s the cream on the cake
The more you get, the more you make
When you’re rich you’ve got a voice
When you’re poor you got no choice
Well money, that’s the cream on the cake

But when you’re drowning a line is a line.....
