ROUTE 66 TO COPPERHEAD ROAD

 

 

 

WHEN I WAS LEARNING TO PLAY THIS SIX STRING
I DREAMED OF THE DAY I COULD MAKE IT SING
WELL I STUCK AT IT AND DID MY HOMEWORK
WHEN I GOT IT RIGHT I FELT MYSELF SMIRK
LEARNT ME A DIFFERENT CHORD EVERY DAY
NOW I MAKE MY CHOICES OF WHAT TO PLAY

(CHORUS)

NOW WHAT THAT IS ALL DEPENDS ON MY MOOD
IT COULD BE SOME COUNTRY AND THEN SOME SOUL
THEN MAYBE BLUES FOLLOWED BY ROCK 'N' ROLL
LIKE ROUTE 66 TO COPPERHEAD ROAD

NOW I KNOW ALL THE CLASSICS OF BY HEART
SO I'VE ALWAYS SOMETHING TO FIT THE PART
IN THOSE EARLY YEARS I WOULD JUST FLUTTER
TODAY IT'S BECOME MY BREAD AND BUTTER
BUT MY PASSION SHOWS NO SIGN OF SLOWING
AND WON'T AS LONG AS MY BLOOD KEEPS FLOWING

(CHORUS)

MOST OF OUR TIME TOGETHER IS JOLLY
SOMETIMES IT’S A LITTLE MELANCHOLY

(SOLO)

THIS JOURNEY'S HAS SOMETIMES CAUSED SOME DISMAY
BUT I CAN ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING TO PLAY
I KNOW WHAT I PLAY IS NO WAY UNIQUE
AND I'M CERTAINLY MY BIGGEST CRITIQUE
IF THERE'S ONE THING WITH WHICH I WILL AGREE
AND THAT'S THAT VARIETY IS THE KEY

(CHORUS X 2)

ROUTE 66 TO COPPERHEAD ROAD

(REPEAT TILL FADE)
