#1
Linky to Listen

Can anybody confirm a military link to this song or any of the stone roses. Duty rumour is this makes reference to somebody on a tactics course in Brecon.

Probably sh1t but i stand by for instruction oh Master DS.

not heard that rumour yet, but lyrics lend themselves to it

The gold roads sure a long road
Winds on through the hills for fifteen days
The pack on my back is aching
The straps seem to cut me like a knife
The gold roads sure a long road
Winds on through the hills for fifteen days
The pack on my back is aching
The straps seem to cut me like a knife

Im no clown I wont back down
I dont need you to tell me whats going down
Down down down down da down down down
Down down down down da down down down

Im standing alone
Im watching you all
Im seeing you sinking
Im standing alone
Youre weighing the gold
Im watching you sinking
Fools gold

These boots were made for walking
The marquis de sade dont wear no boots like these
Golds just around the corner
Breakdowns coming up round the bend

Sometimes you have to try to get along dear
I know the truth and I know what youre thinking

Down down down down da down down down

Im standing alone
Im watching you all
Im seeing you sinking
Im standing alone
Youre weighing the gold
Im watching you sinking
Fools gold

Fools gold

Im standing alone
Im watching you all
Im seeing you sinking
Im standing alone
Youre weighing the gold
Im watching you sinking
Fools gold

There are just a few that caught my ear.

According to Wikipedia (so take it with a pinch of salt):

Melody Maker magazine interview (December 9, 1989): "The song 'Fool's Gold' is about greed. Have you seen 'Treasure Of The Sierra Madre' with Humphrey Bogart ? Three geezers who are skint and they put their money together to get equipment to go looking for gold. Then they all betray each other. They all end up dead, don't they ? That's what the song is about. It's dead right man. But that song is history for us now."
