Written by Ed McGinley


When I’m all out of luck
And I’m battered and bruised
When I’m down on my knees
And there’s holes in my shoes
When I’m tired and weary
And I’m sick of these blues
And I’ve lost my direction
And I’ve got no excuse

When you going to love me?
When you going to love me?
When you find the time, just let me know
And you know that I’ll be there…

When I’m out in the desert
When I’m lost on the plain
When I’m found in some trouble
When I’m wishing in vain

When the storms have abated
And the sailing is plain
And the champagne’s on ice
And the taxman’s been paid
When my ship’s just come in
And I’m top of my game
I’ll be knocking on your door
I’ll be climbin’ up your drain

When you going to love me?
Well I know the time, I’ll tell you when…
You’re gonna love me when I’m … dead!

The Winters Norfolk Island

Steeped in the sound of classic American folk musics—blues, country, RnB, soul, Appalachian—they emerge with their own identity, some kind of hybrid of Roy Orbison and the Sir Douglas Quintet… oscillating between moody and clubby.
