The Wurzels

"Sunny Weston-Super-Mare"
b/w instrumental version


This was the sixteenth 7" 45rpm vinyl single released by The Wurzels after Adge Cutler's death. It was released in September 1988 on the Far End record label, catalogue number FNS2.

  Song Lyrics

The Band:

At the time of the recording of this single The Wurzels consisted of Pete Budd, Tommy Banner and Mike Gwilliam and John Morgan. This was the last appearance of Mike Gwilliam on a Wurzel's single.

The Tracks:

Sunny Weston-Super-Mare - the 'A' side on this single - and Sunny Weston-Super-Mare (Instrumental) were both new and previously unreleased tracks. They were both studio recordings

Disc and Label Variations:

The examples below are taken from the collection of Professor Wurzel and represent what a collector should expect to find. Generally The Wurzels' vinyl single releases from 1975 onwards tended to have an initial pressing run and were then taken off the catalogue. Matrix, Mother and Stamper codes were still used on the vinyl and the information centred around Adge's 1960's recordings that can be found on the Main Menu under 'Vinyl Collecting Guides' remains relevant (with minor changes between different record labels).

          "Sunny Weston-Super-Mare"- Song Lyrics                        

  • I packed me bags and left the farm, I packed it up for sure
    I swore I'd never drive a tractor any more
    Old Mother said thee's must be mad, as I walked out the door
    And Father shouted lazy lout! Don't come back no more!
  • (Chorus)
    I'm off now, off to sunny Weston Super Mare
    Super Mare, Super Mare
    I'm off to sunny Weston Super Mare
    They say you'll always find a welcome way down there
  • A farmer's life is very good, as people often say
    Lots of clean fresh air, and cider every day
    But when the harvest time comes round, the sun it dries your lips
    I'd sooner lay upon the beach, and eat me fish and chips
  • (Repeat chorus)
  • Ah! T'is proper!
  • I'd long to walk on golden beach, where shady palm trees grow
    Forget the mucking out, and no more fields to mow
    The icy cold at Winter time that makes you freeze and shake
    I've left it all behind me, I've really made the break
  • (Repeat chorus)
  • If Paradise is half as nice then this is where I'll stay
    The farmyard's far away from this lovely sandy bay
    I'll walk along the promenade, forget that country lane
    Just write and tell the folks back home, I won't be back again
  • (Repeat chorus twice)
  • Come on boys
    Off to sunny Weston Super Mare
    Super Mare, Super Mare
    I'm off to sunny Weston Super Mare
    They say you'll always find a welcome way down there
  • Come on now
    Off to sunny Weston Super Mare
    Super Mare, Super Mare
    I'm off to sunny Weston Super Mare
    They say you'll always find a welcome way down there
