"Uncle Pat" as written by and Tim Wheeler....
I sent off this morning
Down the road along the river
Which I take but once a year
My walk will take me by the shore
Then inland for a mile or more
From the cold sea spray

A small wood stands upon the hill
An old house near it lies in ruins
Forgotten long ago
And here in a clearing,
overgrown with moss and ivy
Is your lovely grave

A dusk I will make my way
Along the lanes and through the fields
To where my cottage is
But before I step inside for bed
I'll look up at the stars as we had
All those years ago

So here's for Uncle Pat

    General Commenthmm im not sure bout this song. I like it because it doesn't seem to have any meaning to it and it's just for fun, but that's also why i hate it - i can't get my head around it!

    General Commentto me its just like when you walk about where you grew up - like for me in the countryside in the arse end of nowhere in northern ireland, you walk about where you used tom play and everythin is deserted and the houses are totally dilapidated and you know who used to live there and now theyre gone. all bout the melody.

    General CommentI think Tim's brother is called Pat. But, maybe this is his uncle's name.
    However, I think uncle Pat is someone who helped them to become well-known.
