I wrote a new song about my "Omnibus". My "Omnibus" represents my close friends, my whole family and a possible "love" down the road.

Working on the music for this one.



Omnibus

V1

Not half the man that Daddy was,
perhaps I'm even less.
On cruise control, in my 'ole
Omnibus,
gonna drive myself to death.

V2

Relax I'm in no hurry
to die, dont hold your breath.
Jus' looking for someone else
to drive, so I can rest.

PC

And we'll go where you wanna go.
Stay where you wanna stay.
Share our music together
when we cant find the words to say,

Ch

Ride along, sing along, come along inside my Omnibus,
I figure the two of us
are here just for the ride.

Come along, ride along, sing along to the age of aquarius,
let it carry us
on this lonely road tonite.

V3

There's always a seat for family,
a few left in reserve
for friends who ride, from time to time
but never say a word.

"Shotgun" keeps for infant seats
with baby grand's abound.
Their laughter is music
when I cackle and lose it
on the turnaround.

PC

And we'll go where you wanna go.
Play where you wanna play.
Share our music together
when you drive Papaw insane.

Ch

Ride along, sing along, come along inside my Omnibus,
the blood in all of us
guarantees a ride!

Come along, ride along, sing along to Ollie the Octopus,
let 'em carry us
down the road of life.

Bridge

I wont ever stop this bus,
'cept for bathroom breaks
and "Toys R Us",
music stores and fast food junk,
and love, oh I'll always stop for love....

Come along, sing a song, ride along, inside my Omnibus.
Maybe all of us
will find a way to smile.

Ride along, come along, sing along to the songs in all of us,
and call on us
If you ever need a ride.

'Cause on my Omnibus,
you're on this bus for life!
