Whatever happened to Hot Rod Joe
Cruisin the town in his GTO
Now He's stuck in traffic with no place to go
Listening to talk radio

If He closes his eyes he will fall fast asleep
In the leather soft comfort of his new Jeep
And dream of the dreams that he just couldn't keep
When he was a younger man

He used to hear the truth in a Neal Young song
He is listening still but the truth is gone
Alive in a world where he just don't belong
He can see the road but he just can't
Get back home

Lakota shaman burning his sage
It's a cleansing act from an ancient age
Hears his grandfather's voice in the winds that rage
As he sits looking up at the condos

If he closes his eyes he can still see the sun
The bright flash smoke of a white man's gun
ten thousand buffalo on the run
being shot from the back of a train


He used to hear the truth in his grandmother's song
He is listening still but the truth is gone
Alive in a world where he just don't belong
He can see the road but he just can't
Get back home

We're all sailing on the same damn boat
never certain if we're gonna sink or float
I've been a shaman with visions of my own
I've been hot rod Johnny
Lookin' for a home

Stood outside in the cold last night
Fell on my knees in the full moonlight
Thanked the lord for my visions, my visions and my sight.[/font]

Stevie, been awhile

...outstanding song.

I would suggest a title change...
"He Just Can't Get Back Home"

This one could "go viral"... Mr. Furbish:

A super write with a Neal Young vibe... and your vocal is certainly "no slouch" my friend. Love the song and its story.
Ten!

Very meaty lyrics delivered in the manner they deserve. That means very nicely done.

I'd like to see a video with this one.

WOW Dave Rice that's a great compliment. I'm happy if my songs touch one person but I'd take viral with a big smile.

You have a great sound, Steve. I enjoyed my listen. The title puts more importance on Hot Rod Joe than the verses would suggest. It seems to me it's really about "you/he", the singer and how he Can't Get Home". That's the part I'll remember as a listener anyway. Just a thought. Well done.

Ricki

Hi,

I like the story and the sincere delivery of a very well written nostalgic lyric...Your vocals really are perfect for the story...
