There are questions in the corner of my mind that lurk
Like how do the road gritters ever get to work?
Answer me that and you could win a lifetime of a cruise
But hold the phone, here’s Judy Tzuke to take us to the news.
So Tanita Tikaram remains obsessed with tragic Judee Sill
Said “Jesus was a cross-maker who’s making crosses still”
And Linda Ronstadt covered it and so did young Beth Orton
There may be better versions but most of them are now forgotten.
On a moon-lit night when nothing’s right I think of Warren Zevon
The werewolf riff we can’t forgive and a caravan in Devon
The Hollies didn’t make it right nor Dexy’s Midnight Runners
But I used to have a Telecaster not unlike Joe Strummers’.
