Send For That Girl

Barter, 1966 (version 1), 1983 (version 2).  Recorded: 23-08-66

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Mick Stewart (lead) - Nick Simper (bass) - Roger Truth (drums) - Ray Soaper (keyboards)

The final topside, released after his death.  Two versions exist: one with only the Pirates accompaniment that remained unreleased until 1983; the other, with added orchestration courtesy of the venerable Harry Robinson (aka "Lord Rockingham") made up the released single a-side.  The basic tracks of each are from the same take, thus the lyrics are identical, except that in the released single version with orchestration, the extended (echo-ey) "yeeaahhh" at the end of each verse has been mixed out.

 
I've seen you around from town to town
And all I want to do is
Find out where you are, near or far
I've go to get to you-yeeaahhh

     Send for
     That girl
     Must be found
     But I'm bound to find her

Now you can see as plain as me
I've got to find that girl so
Help me on my way, must not delay
I've got to get to her-yeeaahhh

     Send for
     That girl
     Must be found
     But I'm bound to find her

(instrumental break)

Send
An SOS
To the girl I love the best

Now you can see as plain as me
I've got to find that girl so
Help me on my way, must not delay
I've got to get to her-yeeaahhh

     Send for
     That girl
     Must be found
     But I'm bound to find her
    
     Send for - that girl
     Send for - that girl
     Send for - that girl
     (etc to fade)
