(Blame It On) Frank Turner

Post by PatrickTaylor » Wed May 23, 2018 5:15 pm

This is the title to a song I recently wrote - it's actually an Homage to Frank and my way of thanking him for all of his hard work and sticking it out in the brutal music industry. I was introduced to Frank by someone from England who happened to be visiting Florida - we met at a restaurant bar and started talking about music, which lead to her telling me about Frank Turner - and the rest - is history - I love Frank and his music - everything about it - he's inspired me as a songwriter to Get Better (pun intended - that happens to be the first song of Frank's that I heard - I immediately fell in love with his music). I hope to record this song later this summer. And I'm seeing Frank for the first time in Orlando 10 - June - I'm so excited to see him live -

Since making this post I've seen Frank three times - and most recently got to meet him after the show in St. Pete, FL a couple of weeks ago. He was super kind and gracious - and he autographed my guitar. Here is the lyric to (Blame It On) Frank Turner

(Blame It On) Frank Turner

Blame it on Frank Turner
That I even met her
'Cause had he not persisted - with his bloody songs
Then perhaps, or rather
He'd of never mattered
And your and my existence - may not have come along

Yet that saint and sinner
Punk rocker or whatever
Else we might consider - as he takes center stage
Achieved successful status
becoming semi-famous
Thankful that his progress - further paved our way!

Frank Turner mate!
I hope it ain't too late
To thank you man!
We are your two biggest fans

Blame it on Frank Turner
Since I've come to know her
And we've shared together - our favourites of his songs
A shout-out and a holler
You gentleman and scholar
I'm straight away proclaiming - all this and furthermore

Your achievements are amazing!
Your tunes, epic - engaging!
Thankful for your sojourn - spirit - troubadour
I sense a certain kinship
You sparked a new-found friendship
Cheers to you Frank Turner! Here's to Sleeping Souls!

Frank Turner friend
We both thank you once again
For all your tunes
We hope to hear and see you soon

Hundreds and hundreds recorded songs - and counting...
Thousands and thousands of live shows - still counting...
Millions of miles
Countless cheering smiles
Frank Turner we're counting on -
You!

So thank you Sir Frank Turner
Your Knighthood is in order
This honour is forthcoming - in due course and time
You're England's modern poet
With confidence I know it
Brilliant and melodic - in both prose and rhyme

I shall never fault you
Indeed, I do exalt you
'Cause had you not insisted - on not acting your age
Then we may have never
Gotten past the weather
Instead I have penned new songs - upon Sloane's gilded page!

Frank Turner man!
Sam and I say thanks again
For all your songs
Together we will sing along

Frank Turner mate!
I hope it ain't too late
To thank you man!
We are your two biggest fans

Patrick J. Thompson
