Lyrics Timothy Buoys

Song Lyrics Timothy by Buoys


Trapped in a mine that had caved in
And everyone knows the only ones left
Were Joe and me and Tim
When they broke through to pull us free
The only ones left to tell the tale
Were Joe and me

Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Hungry as hell no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll have a swig
And then there's some for you."

Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

I must have blacked out just around then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light of the day again
My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding Timothy

Holmes picked the Buoys to record the song. The song wound up making it to Number 17 on the charts in the year 1971. Rupert Holmes would write another song for the band, entitled “Give Up Your Guns.” The song was not as successful on the charts as “Timothy.” Among other songs composed by Rupert Holmes for the band, “Tomorrow,” “The Prince of Thieves,” and “Blood Knot” are the best known....Buoys Bio
