about

Another song musing on military rank and the musicians identity. Leaders, captains in a scene of loners and rebels, Dottie.

lyrics

In my life, I have known captains
not the strongest or the fastest or the best
just captains
I was never captain stuff
follow me! don’t know where you’re goin’- twice!

I was no captain

Reed from the Fantastic Four
Tracy Braidwood – long dropkicks from full back
short back and sides and no teeth
Bob Shearman from Sturt
they were captains

I was no captain

I just liked to drift wide on the wing
float sideways over the pack for a mark and run
I was no captain

Duke Ellington
Count Basie
you’d follow those guys
listen to them - believe them

Chet Baker, Charlie Parker, Keith Richard
Those guys needed a structure
a house already burning
Brian Jones
he was a captain
he left maps and strategies for Mick

I was no captain
