'Days Gone By' by Jon Boden, the ever so talented frontman of Bellowhead, half of Spiers and Boden, 
and one of Eliza Carthy's Ratcatchers.
This from his awesome Post-Apocalyptic-folk-concept-album 'Songs from the Floodplain'


C
Lying on the motorway this morning,
  C
I thought I heard a distant thunder rolling,
   Am       G            C    F
So I lay so still on the motorway,
          C
‘Till the cavalcade came screaming past like hellhounds in my ears,
       Am        G           C           F
It was over in a moment, the wind like a tornado,
    Am               G             C              F
The sweet perfume of petrol like a lovers parting kiss,
       Am        G           C    F
Then I closed my eyes on the motorway,
       C
And I dreamed about the days gone by, brave boys,
   C
I dreamed about the days gone by.

 C
Lying on the motorway this evening,
    C
The gypsies came up close while I was sleeping,
   Am      G        C    F
So quietly down the motorway,
C
Pulling their possessions in the cover of the night,
     Am               G              C                F
They too had seen the whirlwind, the shining black procession,
Am                  G              C                F
Screaming past like gods ascending through a tarmac sky,
   Am            G            C    F
So they hid themselves by the motorway,
    C
And dreamed about the days gone by, brave boys,
     C
They dreamed about the days gone by.

    Am              G            C              F     
And what were they doing, those people from the government?
        Am          G            C               F
Burning sacrificial gasoline to keep the dogs at bay.
               Am             G             C                       F
And there were shadows in the hedgerows and strange lights from the sliproads,
      C
So we huddle on the motorway, brave boys,
   C
We huddled on the motorway
