Story

    In 1992 this recording of mine won a spot on a compilation disc featuring Kingston, Ontario music acts called 'Foundation Of Rock'. The artwork for the disc was by Peter Quaife, who some might remember as the bass player for that great 60's British band 'The Kinks'. The song I think still has relevance today, considering the ongoing threats to our world's environment, and it's many species.

Lyrics

When The Whale’s Gone      lyrics and music(c)by michael k. myers

 

Well I raced all night and I tried to make it home            

But the rains came down,and chilled me to my bones                                     

I heard the news with the car radio on              

And the rains came down, I was feelin’ so alone

 

When the whale’s gone ,what you gonna do?

When the whale’s gone, where you gonna go?

When the whale’s gone,where you gonna hide?

Ain’t no place to hide           

 

Well the night cleared up,and a million stars appeared

I could see a light driftin' slowly ‘cross the sky

I closed my coat,and a million stars I feared

I could see a light driftin’ slowly ’cross the sky

 

When the whale’s gone ,what you gonna do?

When the whale’s gone, where you gonna go?

When the whale’s gone,where you gonna hide?

Ain’t no place to hide           

Ain’t no place at all 

 

'Gonna use my time, 'gonna plant some corn

'Gonna say my prayers, keep the children warm

I’m gonna use my time,gonna work in the mornin'        

‘Gonna work my fields,  ooh

 

Well I raced all night, and I tried to make it home            

But the rains came down,and chilled me to my bones                                     

I heard the news with the car radio on              

And the rains came down, I was feelin’ so alone

 

When the whale’s gone ,what you gonna do?

When the whale’s gone, where you gonna go?

When the whale’s gone,where you gonna hide?

Ain’t no place to hide
