"The views expressed by others are not necessarily shared by Colin Andrews personally. All perspectives are respected"

This week I received a wonderful gift from the family of my friend Reg Presley (Pop band ‘The
Troggs’) whom I still miss greatly following his passing on February 4th, 2013.
Reg’s Wife, Brenda and Daughter, Karen had discussed an idea we had talked about a few
months ago concerning a possible re-release of  his song ‘
Dust Bowl’ and doing something with a
poem he wrote in very strange circumstances in 1990.  The poem he called ‘Mother Earth – The
Truth’.  The powerful messages conveyed in both pieces of work, are even more relevant to the
times we are now living than when they were written and we both shared the concerns and vision
together along with mutual friend Busty Taylor.

The family kindly gifted the poem for this presentation, not just to help focus his original intention
to reach his fans and the public generally with its message but to hope that it will encourage
donations to my long time research, now in its final and most important stage.

My dedication to Reg is

Donations, however small will be greatly received

Thank you to the family and to all of you for supporting my work and to the Troggs fans for
helping making Regs life a fulfilling experience, unexpectedly shortened as it was.

Dust Bowl
Written by Reg Presley

Some folks are living in a dust bowl
I've seen them on TV, ah
Some folks are living in a dust bowl
Don't love like you and me, ah

Some folks live in little boxes
Underneath the railway station
Some folks live in little boxes
What a way to run a nation

When after all is said and done
We've only got one earth, one sun
There's nowhere in our universe
Where we can go if things get worse
We'd better make a start today
The problems here won't go away
We'd better take just one step back
Cos our beautiful bubble is about to crack

Some folks are breaking down the ozone
Breaking down the ozone layer
Some folks are messin' with the ozone
Hope they're around when it's time to pay, ah

Some folks are cuttin' down the forest
Cuttin' down the forest station
Some folks are cuttin' down the forest
Do we need the devastation?

Cos after all is said and done
We've only got one earth, one sun
There's nowhere in our universe
Where we can go if things get worse
We'd better make a start today
The problems here won't go away
We'd better take just one step back
Cos our beautiful bubble is about to crack

Some folks are living in a dust bowl
Some folks live in little boxes
Some folks are breaking down the ozone
Some folks are cutting down the forest.
