    Take a listen to some of my latest tracks. I'm bigger into choirs these days :lol:

    Probably because I'm a lot closer to an age when I'll be singing in one....

    Mind you, not sure which team I'll be singing for

    I always liked that song, especially the choral bits.

    Thankee, Pard, thankee! :D

    Old maybe, but it stands the Test of Time: it Rocks!!

    I also love 'Octopus.' Frequently on my playlist on the CD or on my guitar.

    One of these days, I'm gonna study up and learn the solo.

    Not bad, not bad at all. Ya did a lot better than I've done lately and I wrote the damn thing

    Times I have been asked what this song means and I still have no idea. Hey, it was that kind of time, ya know...

    Nice to know someone likes to rock out to my old chestnuts :!:

    FERRIS WHEEL (STEVE GILMORE)

    With the release of Roller Coaster Holiday, and the version of the song therein, I can make out some of the lyrics to this here song.

    '???' are words I can't make out; '( )' are what it sounds like to me.
    '< >' are the chorus repeats, 'cause I got tired of repeating them, and it makes the whole less messy ( I hope!)

    For the entire structure, please consult my earlier posting of this song.
    Turn on, tune up, rock out! 8)

    [Am]Like a jeweled[C] ?????????turn [G]on and on, [D]on and on, Children of the[E] Sun

    [Am]Ever since time began,[C] ever since time began,[G] on and on, [D]through Eternity’s [E]door

    <[G]Earth hurts [A]so long ,[C]just a trick gone [D]wrong

    [G]Too bad it [A]didn’t last,[C] too bad it [D]didn’t last

    It didn’t [Am]last long>

    [Am]Stars they cry, and [C]stars they cry out loud fo[G]r rain

    So[D] strong and[E] proud

    [Am]Now lies[C] ?????????? I lay, [G]quick and short, oh

    [D]Quick and short[E] (I lay)

    < . . .no> [Am]

    [Am]Like (an ulcer)[C] facing the sun [G]apple jar [D](burned[E] on)
