~three Colorado poor boys & a Les Paul totin’ guitar man from New York~the Fly by Night band~one of our first original songs~an agent heard it when we played the Sabers’ Hotrod Club gig~ Currigan Hall~he had to put the band in the musicians’ union to access our material~the drummer & bass player ran away~I woke up with my face in the mud~now me & my boyz~Shadow Danse~we still play~try not to get too damned serious about it~

~I’m Bound To Ride Again~

Oh oh, morning finds us crying
we’ve come to see the sight
I know that soon we’ll all be dying
and that will make them right
Mister, carry my story down
won’t you take it to the one

You know I’ve got to hand around
until they find the Sun
(I’m on a journey in the night
on a horse both black and white

I’m bound to ride down to the end
I’m bound to ride again)

Well, the people saw me living there
as one they did proclaim
he ascends the sacred stair
we shall do the same
So they climbed into the night
and they fell into the sound

Somehow it just wasn t right
and the world spinned around
(Chorus)

Yes, I saw the Children falling
hunger was in their eyes

and their frail voices calling
begging to the wise
But the wise men fell upon them
answering with death
and the Children, silence on them
they bled among the rest

(Chorus)

So I sit and watch the Children play
all the games they learned inside
Society has turned a page
let the sweet young Children die

They will ride here next to me
on this journey in the night
Then we all may smile and see
a world that only thinks it’s right

(I’m on a journey in the night
on a horse both black and white
I’m bound to ride down to the end
I’m bound to ride again
Down by where the Children play
I’m bound to ride again

Wisdom comes at any age
I’m bound to ride again)
