The Tim Buckley Archives



Songs never sung

"He would write on hotel pads and things, cocktail napkins, tissues. He would grab something out of my purse if he had an idea, a line or a couple of lines.

"When he got home and clicked into that mode, he would gather up all these little bits and pieces. He would play his guitar, I would hear him vamping repeatedly on a piece, really focused and trying things out..."

Judy Buckley Llewellyn

On the Hook

I saw the Gypsy Woman
and drank her rum & coke
you'll never be a dream she said
till you go up in smoke

I'm walking on the clouds
I'm on the hook all night
I'll kick you in the mourning
oh love me up tonight

I saw the country doctor
and I showed him my star
your sick of rock & roll he said
haul out your old guitar
