Written by Grace Petrie

lyrics

Well it’s my first time tonight in Galway
And on every single street
I can hear the hometown players
And I know I can’t compete
I’ve got no audience to speak of
But I take it on the chin
Cos I’m the worst thing on in town tonight
And it’s 10 euros in

The promoter’s setting out all
Of the chairs that he can find
I tell him optimism isn’t
What I look for in his kind
Still he’s confident of walk-up
But I don’t think we’ve got much chance
It’s the first show of my life that was more
Expensive in advance

And I’ll never be Ed Sheeran
God knows I’m no Steve Earle
Four hundred miles away tonight
From my Hertfordshire girl
And if temptation should befall me
To overstate my worth
At least there’s always Galways
To bring me down to earth

I’ve played rooms of hundreds
That have never felt so loud
Because it’s not the size of the crowd that’s in the gig
But the gig that’s in the crowd
And tonight’s, they are heroic
Their response enough to seem
Like they could fill a football stadium
When they’re a few short for a team

And we’re halfway through the set list
And the finish line’s in sight
When in come five drunk fellas
And they’re making it a night
One hollers ‘are you doing classics?
Cos if you are we’ll pay’
He’s not convinced by my assertion
That they’ll be classics one day

And I’ll never be Ed Sheeran
God knows I’m no Steve Earle
Four hundred miles away tonight
From my Hertfordshire girl
And if temptation should befall me
To overstate my worth
At least there’s always Galways
To bring me down to earth

And I walked along the shoreline
Looked out across the bay
I felt the threat of creative juices
Overflowing to cliché
And I fought the inspiration
I swear I tried to hold it off
I said I’d never write a song here
Because this town’s suffered enough

And I’ll never be Ed Sheeran
God knows I’m no Steve Earle
Four hundred miles away tonight
From my Hertfordshire girl
And if temptation should befall me
To overstate my worth
At least there’s always Galways
To bring me down to earth

Guitar in hand I’m walking
To my hire car down the street
I can hear the hometown players,
and I know when I’m beat
Someone asks me what my act is
And I can’t suppress a grin
when I say ‘I was worst thing on in town tonight for 10 euros in’
