This is my first BIB song not to be an imitation of another band. Rockin' was written in 1978, the chorus came to me in a dream. I had to jump out of bed, write down the words, grab a guitar and figure out the chords. Bob Brigham is singing.

Hi Will,

nice song.
I'd like to know what RTs you used.
Printed out lyrics would be nice.
Who is Bob Brigham?
I suggest you don't post too many songs at a time. A single song will get more attention.
Enjoyable listen.

No problem Floyd, I'll start printing lyrics with each new song.

ROCKIN' 1978


ADA Rocking, we were sailing. Oh how we were wailing
AC#mE Standing in the light, a thousand eyes looking at me
ADA Jumping, we were prancing. Oh how we were dancing
AC#mE And the notes made love together so heavenly.
AD AD ADE Oh so heavenly (chorus)

AD You might have heard about the band and me.
AD We had a hit back in '83.
AD It even played on MTV,
E but then we had some problems with the company

AD Terry wrote the songs and played a fast guitar
AD Now he tells his story from behind a bar
AD Sometimes he gets a check from the BMI
E but he remembers the days when we lit the sky

Chorus - solo

AD Dennis played bass and sang the harmony
AD He came to us from Harvard with a law degree
AD He might have done better if it weren't for me
E But now he owns his own record company

AD Ricky still is drumming in an Eastern town
AD He plays the bar mitzvahs and he gigs around
AD Nothing could ever bring him down
E A space-age clown, he put the meat on the sound

Chorus

AD The years go by, now I work the land
AD My daughter wants to sing in a rock and roll band
AD That's not exactly what I had planned
E but as I remember, I understand.

Chorus

Another very cool, well-written song!! The lyrics are really well done-great job of the bios of the band members-a sense of truth and humor. The live rockin' vibe is cool, and I think the vocalist has the right feel. Great job!!

P.S. Have to ask: Is Will Rockwell a stage name?

Take care. Greg

Will, this is a good sound and a good song. With all there is to choose from in Biab, there is no need to imitate anyone. I think you are on the right track and look forward to more. Tom

Good energy with the song. I enjoyed the lead vocalist. He does a nice job here.
