From the recording Not Being With You
Written for a pair of 20 yr. old hellcats who swooped down on the David Thompson Resort while I was entertaining there in the early 2000’s. They were much too young for me, but the contemplation was a pleasant diversion.
Chetwynd Girls – Glenn Reid
Verse 1: (I been) everywhere across this great big land
Travellin’ with my buddies in a rockin’ band
Met all kinds of women from the east and west and in between
Some will take you places you’ve just dreamed about.
Some you will come back to someday. No doubt.
G D G G7
Some will leave you breathless if you know just what I mean.
Chorus: (But if you wanna) rock your world, get yourself a Chetwynd Girl
They’ve got something extra goin’ on. It just ain’t fair.
(And if you want your) toes to curl find yourself a Chetwynd Girl
Everything a boy desires and more to spare.
Verse 2: Chetwynd Girls have tricks of which you’ve only dreamed.
Two parts Holy terror mixed with one part steam.
(They) hardly give a man a moment’s peace in which to take a rest.
You can try Vancouver, T.O., Montreal.
You may even think you had yourself a ball but
I know where to send you if you’re really looking for the best.

Mid.8: They’re never really what they seem at first sight.

Guaranteed to make you scream alright…Alright…Alright!!!!
Verse 3: Must be something in the local water supply
Pulls a man towards them. They don’t have to try.
Boys will, after all, be boys. At least that’s what they say
You may think you have been but you ain’t been kissed
A total waste of time if you should try to resist
Better just to lean back and relax and let her have her way.
