about

Recorded this in Champaign, Illinois on my original Fostex X-15 4-track. This was a bit unusual for me in that era since I did not multi-track and piece together the song. Its basically just two live full performances of the song with just voice and acoustic guitar mixed together. An early version of Tadpoles performed this live in 1991, but it was never revisited after that point and was never released other than to a handful of "friends."

lyrics

Somebody's walking uptown
With your friends
You look
They're not around
Doo doo doo doo

Someday with a friend
And then you turn around
Its the end
One day with a friend
And then you turn around
Its the end
Doo doo doo doo

They're not around
They're not around
They're not around
They're not around
When you
When you
When you
Need them
