Townshend, Pete - Love Ain't For Keeping Lyrics




Layin' on my back
In the newly mown grass
The rain is coming down
But the clouds have surley pass
You bring me tea
Say 'the babe's a-sleepin'
Lay down beside me
Love ain't for keeping

Black ash from the foundry
Hangs like a hood
But the air is perfumed
By the burning firewood
The seeds are bursting
The spring is seeping
Lay down beside me
Love ain't for keeping
Lay down beside me
Love ain't for keeping

    @bashu1357 could be a phase shifter that he had on his guitar sound but not sure..

  6. John Cleary

    This song is epic, so clean and beautiful, pure and easy...the air is perfumed by the burning firewood. One of my favorites of Pete, along with I'm One, I've Known No War, the Dirty Jobs, Let's See Action, A Quick One--aw, hell, they're almost all my favorites.

  7. colmas

    that whirring, shimmering, resonating guitar in the background sounds tight
