I first played the pyramid stage
Back in 1984
(Karl and Kev, Barv on bass
/
Karl on keys, Kev on drums)
And Anto man made four

I stayed up all night wide awake
Wearing a mile-wide grin
Diggin' the transient city
And all that grooved within

Played a storm in '86
Felt like we were the kings
Fiddle bows and mandolins
Sure broke a lot of strings

We played "Purple Rain", "Medicine Bow"
And "The Healing has Begun"
I climbed the tor at the break of dawn
Just to salute the sun

And I'm goin' back to Glasters walkin' tall
Yes I'm goin' back to Glasters walkin' tall, walkin' tall
I'm goin' back to Glasters, I can't go any faster
I'm goin' back to Glasters, that's all

The next time was '89
With the raggle-taggle band
We were jammin' jigs and reels
In a backstage transit van

I wore a wedding suit
I sang "When you go away"
Sharon Shannon's accordion
Was the soundtrack of the day

And I'm goin' back to Glasters walkin' tall
Yes I'm goin' back to Glasters walkin' tall, walkin' tall
I'm goin' back to Glasters, I can't go any faster
I'm goin' back to Glasters, that's all

Five years later I returned
A different man of course
I guested with the boy Mcnabb
And the mighty Crazy Horse

I cranked up the red Les Paul
And I let the b*****d rip
I'm coming back this year for sure,
I might even be hip

And I'm goin' back to Glasters walkin' tall
Yes I'm goin' back to Glasters walkin' tall, walkin' tall
I'm goin' back to Glasters, I can't go any faster
I'm goin' back to Glasters, that's all
