Drunk (Spinning Wheel Blues)


Two o’clock

and feeling so high.

Walking on walls

and touching the floor.

Spinning wheel blues

in the back of your mind.

Knowing you can’t take



Churning stomach

in time with each spin

as the room turns over

and throws you aside.

You clutch to the bed

as though you would fall

and – somewhere

another night died.


Three o’clock

and feeling so high……


Four o’clock.

Four o’clock.

Four o’clock…..

I Like this, Ian.
I'm teetotal these days but have vivid recollections of watching the walls slide away and then putting them back again; then they slide away again.
I like the circularity of it and the roundabout music suits it so well.
