Walk All The Way To The Moon


The sun comes up with a blinding light
but there’s no guarantees
I always look to the sky Like a sailor to the sea
Trying to make one last escape
let’s make our move tonight
Based on all the evidence
I think we’ll be alright

Boundaries blurred by the path of light
walk all the way to the moon
We can save what’s left of us
Lord I hope we get there soon


None of my business what you think of me
I guess I could care less though you may disagree
it’s always been it’s nothing new
That's what the old ones say
we’re simply passing through
Like rain moving cross the bay

Boundaries blurred by the path of light
walk all the way to the moon
We can save what’s left of us
Lord I hope we get there soon

This is a great listen, Tom.

A good Rock write. Everything about it works - at every moment.

Brings to mind every classic rock band one can think of - yet doesn't seem like a "copy" of any one in particular. That's cool - a little ZZ Top, a little AC/DC, a little BTO (mixed with some Guess Who), a little Skynyrd..

The mix is exceptional. Powerful instruments and a clean, clear vocal - professional in every way. Exceptional guitars! Love the stop! Super lead.

And... for a Country guy, you do one heck of a Rock vocal!

Top-notch.

Tom,

Great guitar driven sound- that chorus hook is so catchy and your vocal has just the right amount of attitude.
Loved this!

Cool tune. Some excellent chord progressions. I agree with Floyd. I grew up on the Guess Who and BTO and definitely has that vibe. Well done

Agree with the other posts on some of the bands this reminded me of.

I even got a "Hot Blooded - Foreigner" vibe on the verses a little bit.

I liked this a lot. Great work!

floyd, This one was a lot of fun for me. Going way back, for me Rock came first, then Blues, then Country. It all bleeds together somewhat. Thanks for the wonderful review. I certainly value your comments, Tom

YEAH!!!! Great hearing you rock out!

Guitars are perfect, as is the vocal. And the mix! Totally pro as usual.

Great song, better than most of the music I hear on my local rock radio station these days.

Oh yeah!! We are down with the hint of early Skynrd - the good original band. This sounds like it would fit perfectly on any radio classic rock show. It’s that good.

As you responded to floyd...rock to blues to country. And you retain the goodness of them all.

Great write, vocal and signature TA production to top it all off.
