about

A tribute to an old van, Lucky

lyrics

We were in Victoria
When we heard news so horrible
Our old van she got so sick
So sick that she could not be fixed
Bad luck

So we made a call or two
But everyone done left us blue
Til an old friend stepped in line
And said "I'll help you, you'll be fine"
We got lucky

Just when things were going so bad bad bad
Just when sorrow made us feel so so sad
Ooooh we got lucky

Found a van so shiny clean
Played some gigs and hit the scene
Til we got to Kaslo town
And found the bar done been closed down
Bad luck

So we played there in the street
In just an hour came up neat
Took our ship on up to Nelson
Found a gig, and then we got some
We got lucky

Just when things were going so bad bad bad
Just when sorrow made us feel so so sad
Ooooh we got lucky

St. Albert's spirit cast a spell
Left the poor boys feelin' like hell
By Saskatoon, Jay's leg was limp
By Regina, he was a full-on gimp
Bad luck

Just when blood was startin to boil
We hit Red-town and struck some oil
Got treated to a killer night
That ended with the Northern lights
We got lucky

Just when things were going so bad bad bad
Just when sorrow made us feel so so sad
Ooooh we got lucky

Jason was in need of love
He was prayin' to the Lord above
Try he might all over town
Everyone would shut him down
Bad luck

Hog leg down to Brandon Town,
Jason's luck turned right around
Had his choice of plenty of women
But none of them sweet enough for his sweet puddin'
We got lucky

Just when things were going so bad bad bad
Just when sorrow made us feel so so sad
Ooooh we got lucky

about

Sarah Burton Toronto, Ontario

Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. ... more
