Cold Chisel – Cheap Wine

A song that really became something of an anthem for the pub circuit in Australia in the 80’s.  Cold Chisel’s “Cheap Wine”, featuring Jimmy Barnes and the band after a big night out.   This song is a track from the 1980 album “East”

 

 

“Cheap Wine”

Once I smoked a Danneman cigar
I drove a foreign car
Baby that was years ago
I left it all behind
I had a friend, I heard she died
On a needle she was crucified

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

I don’t mind takin’ charity
From those that I despise
I don’t really need your love

But you can’t meet my eyes

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

I’m sitting on the beach drinkin’ rocket fuels – oh yeah!

Watching the ocean, watching the shore
Watching the sunrise, and thinkin’ there could never be more
Never be more

Anytime you want to find me
I don’t got a telephone
I’m another world away
But I always feel at home
With my

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

  1. Interesting. I watched the song but I didn’t know it. That’s one way to cut down on video costs, though, taping everything in your own house. I’m glad nobody’s every tried filming me as I get ready in the morning. I think that might be more appropriate for a horror movie than a rock video.
