On Easy Street (Neil Cotton)

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13674961

We have losses no big gains
Written off as growing pains
Not alone in this big scene
Climbers chasing evasive dreams

A place that we can call home
A car that no ba-ank owns
Itís all an uphill drive
But one day weíll arrive

On Easy Street
Beside a sandy beach
On a lake or by the sea
The view is a dream
On Easy Street

Grab a coffee a piece of toast
Kiss the kids then hit the road
Off to work with good intent
Cover more than food and rent

The years go by fold in a fog
In a flash the job is done.
Did I save along the way
Enough to have a lengthy stay

On Easy Street
Beside a sandy beach
On a lake or by the sea
The view is a dream
On Easy Street
On a lake or by the sea
The view is a dream
On Easy Street

Easy Street sounds an idyllic road. Sadly most of us have to work our asses off for 40 years to pay the toll to walk there
Good song and theme

Hi Neil:

I enjoyed listening as I followed the lyric. I also agree with Travis... and I'm still looking for "Easy Street!" Thanks for sharing.

Never heard of such a place. Wouldn't it be nice if we could find it?

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Never been a fan of the beach (too crowded and too hot) unless it's my own private one with a lot of palm trees. A river bank will do it for me.

LOL...I hear ya, not big on crowds either, but I like to snorkel, lisen to reggae and Trop Rock (Buffett, Zac Brown, Alan Jackson) on the beach and the like.
My wife and I have joined a Parrot Head Club here in the Toronto area...they have parties and trips...should be fun...I wrote this with them in mind.
I have enough such song for a CD...12 songs....3 have been recorded for real, not work demos like this one.

BTW The group does charity work for children as well

Neil,

This is nice tuneóas mentioned above, the fiddle adds some warmth and substance to the arrangement; and I also really liked the little sprinkle of piano in the chorus. Well done!

Best regards,

Deej
