About the song
The AcousticLife forum members try and meet up every year ... this year we met in Halifax.
Lyrics
We all came to Halifax to meet at the wool merchant
A hotel with a room that we could use
The water tasted similar to swimming pool detergent
And Caffreys or Peroni was the only sodding booze
But Keith and Martin they were keen to keep our spirits up
With Glenlivet and Glenmorangie in little plastic cups

With words and tunes and melodies the weekend quickly passed
With different styles and tunings all on show
With jigs and reels and ragtime tunes the fingers moved quite fgast
And melancholy airs and slide guitar that went quite slow
Guild, Tarans, Brooks, de Faoites, Greenfields, Sigmas causing mayhem
And a 1950s quiz compiled by that bastard Paul Graham

Thomson, White and Chesterton they launched they latest venture
A book of tunes that features a CD
The songs were writ on Butterfly as she had an adventure
Converted into tablature and even DVD
The hotel staff were pleasant and I don’t wish to be rude
But they couldn’t multitask with weddings and bringing our food.

Sunday morning came too soon and all the bags were packed
And cases filled with all sorts of guitars
We tried to pay by credit card but their machine was knacked
So paid in cash and sadly put our baggage in our cars
We parted after coffee clearly eager for some more
We’ll have to wait till somebody arranges HB4
