est. 1974...

 

the following lyrics should suffice to describe...

THE LONG ROAD OF SHARING

I REMEMBER THE CAMPFIRE AT DELAWANA INN
IT WAS THE SUMMER OF ’69
MARY’S JOHN WAS PLAYIN’ GUITAR
I WAS ENVIOUS THAT IT WASN’T MINE
I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN BUT IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG
TO KNOW THAT NIGHT WOULD CHANGE MY LIFE
5 YEARS LATER NEW YEAR’S DAY MY FIRST GIG
AND LIFE WAS ON THE RISE

THAT WAS 1974
A MATINEE AT THE INFAMOUS PINES
I MADE 20 BUCKS FOR THE FIRST 2 HOURS
AND 10 MORE FOR MY FIRST REPRISE

I KNEW MY WORLD CHANGED THERE AND THEN
I KNEW I WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE
I WAS DRIVEN ANEW MY GUITAR MY FRIEND
AND AN AUDIENCE TO SHARE MY SPACE

CHORUS

ON THE LONG - LONG LONG ROAD OF SHARING
OF THIS THING I DO - MY HEART OF ROCK AND ROLL
ON THE LONG - LONG LONG ROAD OF SHARING
MY SAME OLD FACES MAKE MY HEART GO “BOOM BOOM BOOM”
ON THE LONG LONG - YEAH YEAH
ON THE LONG LONG - YEAH YEAH
ON THE LONG - LONG LONG ROAD OF SHARING…

 

THERE ISN’T A VENUE I HAVEN’T PLAYED
I FELT WELCOMED IN THEM ALL
FROM REC-ROOMS TO CAMPFIRES BUSES AND BOATS
CHURCHES FUNERAL HOMES AND MALLS
FROM BARS AND CARS PLANES AND TRAINS
COLLEGE CAMPUSES COAST TO COAST
YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT STAYING IN THE MOMENT
WELL I’VE STAYED THERE MORE THAN MOST

ON STAGES OF GIVING AND FEELING THE RETURN
A SPARK OF ENERGY IGNITED TO A FLAME
MUSIC REQUIRES NO FAITH NO PROMISE
I PAY HOMAGE AS I TAKE DEAD AIM
