WESTGATE WIDOW

Words & Music: Phyl Lobl
Arranged and accompanied by Michael Roberts

Westgate you took my pal,
My laughing, drinking, joking pal,
You stopped his laughter when you fell,
When you came down.

You welders and you tough dogmen,
I beg you will you listen then,
When with concrete and steel you spin,
I beg you to take care,
For we'll be a long time lonely now,
A long time lonely.

Westgate you took my man,
How I curse your rotten span,
I'll have to manage best I can,
Since you came down.

You designing and you planning men,
I beg you will you listen then,
When with concrete and steel you spin,
I beg you to take care,
For we'll be a long time lonely now,
A long time lonely.
