#SayNoToTrump



In July 2012, The Trump Corporation (of Donald Trump fame) opens an executive golf development on the Menie Estate in Aberdeenshire, just south of the Ythan estuary. It’s been a massive political controversy here in Scotland, destroying forever the unique and dynamic Balmedie Dune System, an erstwhile Site of Special Scientific Interest. Anthony Baxter’s beautiful, witty and enraging feature length documentary You’ve Been Trumped inspired the song (and incorporates it now into its end credits). It tracks the development through the stories of local residents at Menie, including Susan Munro, Michael Forbes and his family, David Milne and Mickey Foote (former producer of The Clash). Despite vilification and harassment, they maintain dignity and fortitude. Though the environment cannot be restored, the weather on this exposed northern coast might nevertheless get its own back (haar, if you’re not from these parts, is sea mist …) Find out more http://www.youvebeentrumped.com


lyrics


I was Farrah Fawcett, you were Steve McQueen
And we rode your silver Grifter
Half the way from Aberdeen

And the waves fall
How they fall

I kept lookout in the marram grass
U-boats on the skyline
Commandos at the pass

And the waves fall
How they fall

The tide still ebbs and flows
where the Ythan meets the ocean
And not even God himself
can stop the northerlies from blowing
You can tear these dunes asunder
Pound this wonder into dust
with your cruel hands and crooked hearts
laden with lust and expensive lies
But the haar will stumble in to cover your eyes
The haar will stumble in

You said “Michael blew the clouds away”
And sure a scarlet shard of sunset scores the granite grey

And the waves fall
How they fall

And the tide still ebbs and flows …
