Terry Reid – Brave Awakening lyrics

Lyrics taken from

    This song, written in the mid 1970s probably means as much to Terry as any song he's ever written. It's almost a folk song, written from stories he had heard and been told by his family on his Mother's side, who were all from the North East and had worked the coal mines for generations. The old miners would sit in the working men's clubs telling stories, and the song is written from that perspective. It's also somewhat prophetic, as the coal industry closures began only a decade later.
