Local Boy Chops Wood
by Donovan
He got weights on his shoulders
He got chains round his neck
Before he get very much older
He be a nervous wreck
Got plenty hangers on
To keep him happy and high
You know, but deep down inside him
You can hear him cry

"Local Boy chops wood", headline read
"Local Boy makes good", watch him bleed
"Local Boy chops wood", what went wrong?
"Local Boy makes good", wasn't too strong

One riff of his guitar
Gonna change the whole scene
He's a rebel romantic
With a death-wish dream

"Local Boy chops wood", headline read
"Local Boy makes good", watch him bleed
"Local Boy chops wood", what went wrong?
"Local Boy makes good", wasn't too strong

He keep ice in his young veins
To cool the fires in his head
It'll take more than double brandies
To dry the tears he shed

"Rock Star found dead"
"Rock Star found dead"
"Rock Star found dead", what went wrong?
"Rock Star found dead", wasn't too strong

Read all about it, yeah, yeah, yeah
Read all about it, yeah, yeah, yeah

"Rock Star found dead"
"Rock Star found dead"
"Rock Star found dead"
"Rock Star found dead"...
