Gerry Rafferty again

Even before the band Stealer's Wheel this artist was in a group called The Humblebees. It's the same great voice though. This recording is kind of weak in quality, but it's from 1969 and not one in 100,000 Americans would know the song, so what can you say? (Maybe more Scotsmen would.)

Patrick was written about Rafferty's artist friend, John Patrick Byrne, who painted a bunch of Gerry's album covers, as displayed in the stills in this "video".




"Patrick my primitive painter of art,
you will always and ever be near to my heart.
I will never cross water, never cross sea.
We will always be with you, Jockie, Mally, and me.

The things that we have are all that we need
You have your painting, and I like to read books
by people of feeling, someone sincere.
They remind me of you and what we have here.

Patrick my primitive painter of art
You will always and ever be near to my heart.
I will never cross water, never cross sea
We will always be with you, Jockie, Mally, and me.

If in our lifetime we find peace of mind,
we'll remember the bad days that we left behind,
thinking only of love and what it can bring.
You paint songs for the children, a song we'll always sing.

Patrick my primitive painter of art
You will always and ever be near to my heart
I will never cross water, never cross sea
We will always be with you, Jockie, Mally, and me."


No, it's not AC/DC; sometimes you don't want that high energy.
