Inner City Boy by Mark Ramsey Gott released August 2017


Very pleased to release 'Inner City Boy' today. It started with a simple riff on the guitar and grew from there. I am reliably informed that it is a Cha-Cha-Cha, which made me smile, must have some Cuban roots somewhere! Maybe it'll get on Strictly...lol. Seriously though, it is my first song with social comment at its heart. I worked over 25 years as a teacher, many in the inner city, some of the lyrics are based on my own experience of the children I taught. What spurred me to write this song was a disturbing article I read in my local paper about a convicted gang of young men in the inner city of my town. It shocked me when I read the names and found that three out of the twelve had been in one of my classes years ago. Food for thought, because although one was a baddie the other two weren't. Hope you enjoy. Mark
