Here Comes The Band

Here Comes The Band (Soft Rock)

World is growing older – right before my eyes,
and there are songs I want to sing before the music dies.
And there are places I’ve still got to be,
to hear the band play rock and roll one time for me.

They say that life is for the young. I know just what they mean.
But life don’t owe you nothing. It can rain on every dream.
So turn the music up real loud and strong,
and listen close here comes the band with one more song.

Chorus
Here comes the band ....... Here comes the band .........
Don’t it make you feel good. Playing oh so strong.
Got to move with the music. Listen to the song.
Here comes the band.


The days grow short. The nights grow cold. The years begin to fly.
I turn my head and look behind at chances I let by.
Then music sparks a flame down deep inside.
I take the stand and join the band for one more ride.

Here comes the band …….. Here comes the band........
Don’t it make you feel good. Playing oh so strong
Got to move with the music. Listen to the song.
Here comes the band.


Been so many places. Reached up to the skies.
The road’s been long. The band’s stayed strong; no compromise.
‘Cause music’s in my heart and in my soul.
I’ve got to play just one more day that’s rock and roll.

Here comes the band …….. Here comes the band........
Don’t it make you feel good. Playing oh so strong
Got to move with the music. Listen to the song.
Here comes the band.

Love this Wazza! I can totally relate, as I believe life would be very sad indeed without music and poetry - plus I do love my rock and roll! Really well done, and I'd love to hear it some time!

Thanks Catherine. I don't have it recorded but might be able to do something about that. It's a song I used to do with a group I worked with for many years.
