BITTERSWEET ADIEU (Ron Griffiths)
[Iveys demo from "Treacle Toffee World - Further Adventures into the Pop Psych Sounds from the Apple Era, 1967-1969" CD - recorded 1968 - released U.S. 2008]

Bittersweet Adieu
As the band plays its last set
'Specially for us
An offer we will not forget

There is no place
You can name
We've not been
Coast to coast
From Rochester
To Gretna Green

Bittersweet Adieu
To loving by your, by your side
Those good times are through
And even are the times we cried

There is no place
You can name
We've not been
Coast to coast
From Rochester
To Gretna Green

Bittersweet Adieu
Recording in a day

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

There is no place
You can name
We've not been
Coast to coast
From Rochester
To Gretna Green

Bittersweet Adieu
It's goodbye, not au revoir
Other things to do
Maybe, I will be a star

I won't marry
Settle down
Have a son
Not until
I've been around
Had my fun

Bittersweet Adieu
Let's call it a day
Bittersweet Adieu
Love's a gamble, anyway
Bittersweet Adieu
It's called another day
Bittersweet Adieu.
