Don't know what's got into me but this is the third song in a month.
I'm creatively spent.
I had an old one written/recorded in 1988.
I'm still pleased with the original for that time but wanted to bring it into the 21st century.
So....I was fortunate enough to collab with Ken Lasiane again and record an updated version.
He does lead guitar and the rhythm guitar panned left.
I played rhythm guitar panned right
It's called Roadman...is there such a thing as a light rock story telling song?
_CDRIVIN.STY CountryDrivin8s w PedSteel[150RS
Country Drivin' 8ths pedal steel, electric guitar and electric bass, joined by strumming acoustic guitar & the NashvilleEven8ths RealDrums style. (El.Bass, PedalSteel, El.Guitar, Ac.Guitar, Drums=NashvilleEven8^6-HiHat
To any that give a listen I hope you found it worthy of your time.
First song on the list: https://www.soundclick.com/artist/default.cfm?bandID=897733Roadman
Street lights shining down on me. I need to cover ground
Got to find an alley before the hawk is out
And I’ve been told, I’m a roadman running....out on the road.Verse 2
The midwest cold chills to the bone. The south sun has burned my skin.
Well I've known worse addictions, all I know is where I've been.
And I’ve been told, I’m a roadman running....out on the road.
Lead BreakVerse 3
Where I'll be I could not say. What I can carry, is all that I've got.
Still I keep my self respect, I always find a job.
And I am told, I'm just a roadman running....out on the road.Chorus
Am I chasing freedom, in fear of being trapped?
A way of reaching forward or running from the past?
I won't wear out my welcome....and I always watch my back.
The Roadman' Code.....know when to make tracks.
You've got to know when to boogie.Verse 4
I guess it's time to jump this train. I got a message from some old friend.
(She said) You've always got a place to stay, only a fool would not accept.
I left the road...but I still think about running.
Out on the road.Lead Break
Vamp to end....
