White boy in town

Big black, blue sound

Night club, I paid in

I got a stamp on my skin

Main attraction dead on his feet

Black man rhythm with a white boy beat

They got him on milk and alcohol

They got him on milk and alcohol

Stay put I wanna go

Hard work, bad show

More liquor, it dont help

Hes gonna die, it breaks my heart

I decided eventually

This aint doing a thing for me

They got him on milk and alcohol

They got him on milk and alcohol

(Instrumental)

They got him on milk and alcohol

They got him on milk and alcohol

They got him on milk and alcohol

They got him on milk and alcohol

Got up, I walked out

To the car, start it up

Feel bad, sad night

I never saw a red light

Sirens were a screamin all around

I pulled on over and I shut her down

A black cop gave me a shove with his gun

Said up against the wall and dont make a run

They got me on milk and alcohol

They got me on milk and alcohol

They got me on milk and alcohol

They got me on milk and alcohol

A mate of mine used to be in a band with Gypie prior to him being with Feelgood. When Gypie had made it with Feelgood he turned up at my mates house one Saturday and said how about a gig, can you get a drummer and bass player? Gypie had organised a van with roadie, PA, lights etc. Gypie also supplied a large box of various harmonica's and told my mate to take his pick and keep what he wanted. He said he felt like a rockstar not having to load and unload the kit.

He said drugs, heroin in particlar had screwed his career at one point.

Funnily enough I'm just off out to see a local band featuring the drummer from a band that used to base their act on Feelgood type music. The Feelgood type band's [The Eric Olthwaite Gang] guitarist and bass player who are mates should also be there. The guitarist from this band had to sadly stop playing due to serious ill health; a bloomin shame as he was a good un.
