This is the best song written by Lal Waterson for the "Bright Phoebus" album. It 
features Norma Waterson on vocals but there's a demo version sung by Lal herself.

G                         C      Em
Fell in the street in a drunken heap;
Am                              G
There's bright water all around me.
G                              C      Em
And the cheap red wine in me drunken brain
Am                               G
Has left a burning flame in me belly.
Dm           
I don't need nobody helping me;
   C                   G
I don't need nobody's arm around me.


G                         C     Em
If I was a black beetle upside down,
Am                               G
I could kick all night long and never turn around.
G                                C      Em
But I'm flat on my back in the rainbow rain,
Am                                          G
Still I know, in the morning I'll be on me feet again.
Dm 
Just can't get a grip on the ground;
C                     G
I'm upside down the right way round.


G                     C      Em
I promise thee my shameless lady,
Am                          G
Who laughs out loud in the sad patient night,
G               C      Em
Always to be honestly thee,
Am                          G
In me waking dreams or me drunken nights,
Dm
I don't fear the yawning sunshine morning;
      C              G
I'm forward running back again.


G                         C      Em
Fell in the street in a drunken heap;
Am                              G
There's bright water all around me.
G                              C      Em
And the cheap red wine in me drunken brain
Am                               G
Has left a burning flame in me belly.
Dm           
I don't need nobody helping me;
   C                   G
I don't need nobody's arm around me.
