about

Bourdon Willie Belgium

One listen to BW and you know that this band has roots that reach deep into a rich and fertile musical tradition. From the first notes their music leads you to the point where old style R&B and pop rock meet and flirt with gospel and country.
Dylan, Springsteen, J.J. Cale, Clapton, The Band and The Beatles, the music of all those wonderful bands is etched in their DNA.

Track Name: Southbound Train
Would you rather be a woman or a man
Live quietly or die making a stand
In the end it's all the same
We're all on a southbound train

Does time move along a straight and narrow track
Or does it bend and curl and always come back
In the end it's all the same
We're all on a southbound train

So, don't bring roses to my grave when I die
They'll have perished by the time I arise
Don't bring roses to my grave when I die
Bring 'em to me now

Don't put your hopes on the man driving the train
You can sing and pray, his course remains the same
Your efforts are in vain, your efforts are in vain
We're all on a southbound train

So, don't bring roses to my grave when I die
Don't bring roses to my grave when I die
Don't bring roses to my grave when I die
Don't bring roses to my grave when I die
Bring 'em to me now
Track Name: Tin Roof
listen to the sound of the rain on the tin roof
listen to the sound of the rain on the tin roof
it's been calling me all night
saying son you'll be alright
when you go

so i left home and headed for the horizon
so i left home and headed for the horizon
it's been calling me all day
saying son there is no way
you will make it

traveling these roads that go nowhere
traveling these roads that go nowhere
so i put my suitcase down
in this god forsaken town
'long this highway

listen to the sound of the rain on the tin roof
listen to the sound of the rain on the tin roof
it's been calling me all night
saying son you'll be alright
when you go
Track Name: Man Of Gold
A new day calls and all the guests have gone
Hold me now, don't let me fall
Take me to our bed, I won't get far on my own
The booze has taken over my brain control

Tomorrow I will be the man of gold
Now I'm just feeling way too old
Take me to our bed, I won't get far on my own
The booze has taken over my brain control

And when my guts stop turning
You can tell me I'm a fool
Unable to behave responsibly
But now please be still and see me through

A new day calls and all the guests have gone
Hold me now, don't let me fall
Take me to our bed, I won't get far on my own
The booze has taken over my brain control

And when my guts stop turning
You can tell me I'm a fool
Unable to behave responsibly
But now please be still and see me through
Track Name: Comfort Of Your Misery
isn't it a great place to be
your very own dark rabbit hole
it 's great to return
to the comfort of your misery

doesn't it feel like home
wrapped up in cellophane
so the air won't get in
in the comfort of your misery

take your time
nothing's rushing you
the only thing that's passing by is life

don't you listen to what they say
it's a great place to stay
here you're always right
in the comfort of your misery

take your time
nothing's rushing you
the only thing that's passing by is life
Track Name: Wish That I Could Fall In Love With You
it was the end of july
as i closed the door behind me
i knew that behind it you would cry
for love in vain although you tried

in the summer heat you gave me
your warm body one more time
it was your way of saying goodbye
never to forget what i left behind

as i walk out of the building
your sweet smell lingers on
there's only one thing i regret babe
i wish that i could fall in love with you

maybe when i'm old i'll be lonely
and i'll regret that i didn't stay
but baby my heart says it's the right thing to do
'though i wish that i could fall in love with you

woman you treated me nicely
woman you drove me mad
but when i leave it don't get me blue babe
oh i wish that i could fall in love with you

maybe when i'm old i'll be lonely
and i'll regret that i didn't stay
but baby my heart says it's the right thing to do
'though i wish that i could fall in love with you

find yourself a decent man
someone who pays attention to you
someone who treats you like you deserve to
and forget i couldn't fall in love with you
