CATCH THE RAINBOW (00:00)
When evening falls
She’ll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can see
Soft and warm
She’ll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the rays
We believed
We’d catch the rainbow
Ride the wind
To the sun
Sail away
On ships of wonder
But life’s
Not a wheel
With chains
Made of steel
So bless me
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
We believed
We’d catch the rainbow
Ride the wind
To the sun
And sail away
On ships of wonder
But life’s
Not a wheel
With chains
Made of steel
So bless me
Oh, bless me
Bless me
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

SHIELD (06:21)
Mama plays a queen on the hill built on a dream
While the children play in the field
Papa smokes the pipe of a sweet and better life
But how strong is the shield?
Can peace be found on the carpet above ground
Where sky is forever blue
So let it pass baby now, the slow and riding cloud
Which may take me from you
Many things a man can lose
His self, his rights, his views
But never his heart or his love
So take this hand of mine and climb baby, climb
To the hill up above
Now you can play a queen on the hill built on a dream
While our children play in the field
I can smoke the pipe of a sweet and better life
And trust in the strength of the shield
So trust in you love, and Lucy of above
And let light pass like a wheel
Don’t take the chance of life’s hectic dance
Kiss the strength of the shield
The seeker will be found by the looker on the ground
And to his wish he will yield
Fate will have it’s word, of course And time will change its course
And hold the strength of the shield

NO ONE CAME (12:30)
Maybe it’s because I’m only starting
That I think it won’t take too long
Maybe it’s because I can see you laughing
That I think you’ve got it wrong
Maybe I could be like Robin Hood
Like and outlaw dressed all in green
Someone said what’s he gonna turn out like
And someone else said never mind
Well I was big and bold and more than twice as old
As all the cats I’d ever seen
I grew my hair and bought a suit
Of shiny white or was it cream
I shook and shivered danced and quivered
And stood on a mountain top
No one came from miles around and said
Man your music is really hot
Well I knew what they meant because I was a freak
My throat was tired and worn
My pretty face just looked out of place
As they poured on the scorn
I wrote on yellow paper from a man who was the king
He said my boy we’ll have some crazy scenes
There weren’t any scenes at all like he was talkin’ about
He must’ve been the king of queens
Well I could write a million songs about the things I’ve done
But I could never sing them so they’d never get sung
There’s a law for the rich and one for the poor and there’s another one for singers
It’s die young and live much longer
Spend your money and sit and wonder
No one came for miles around
And said man your music is really funky
I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star
Nobody knows who’s real and who’s fakin’
Everyone’s shouting out loud
It’s only the glitter and shine that gets through
Where’s my Robin Hood outfit
Well I’ve come and I’ve gone before you wink an eye
No one ever cared enough to say goodbye
The money’s good and the time you have
Fun and games galore
But you spend your money and lie in bed forgotten
And you wonder what you did it for
No one came from miles around
And said man who’s he?

    Excellent!!!! Now, at the risk of sounding pedestrian, I need to go listen to “Highway Star”.

      ‘Highway Star’ will always be my favorite rock song. Old flames die hard!
