Lyrics
THE LORD HAS RISEN YOU’VE BEEN FORGIVEN
I THINK ITS TIME YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND
IT’S SACRILEGIOUS TO BE SO VICIOUS
I BET YOUR GLAD YOUR STILL ALIVE

CAUSE YOUR CAUGHT IN THE LIGHT
AND THE TIMINGS RIGHT
CAUGHT IN A RAGE OF FRIGHT
AND YOUR HAND STILL IN THE JAR

CAUSE YOUR CAUGHT IN THE LIGHT
AND THE TIMINGS RIGHT
CAUGHT IN A RAGE OF FRIGHT
AND YOUR HAND STILL IN THE JAR

NO MORE CONFUSION THEY CAUGHT YOU SNOOZING
I THINK IT’S TIME YOU PAY THE FINE
THE CRIMES COMMITTED THE SENTENCE GIVEN
YOU GOT TO LEAVE THAT LIFE BEHIND

CAUSE YOUR CAUGHT IN THE LIGHT
AND THE TIMINGS RIGHT
CAUGHT IN A RAGE OF FRIGHT
AND YOUR HAND STILL IN THE JAR

CAUSE YOUR CAUGHT IN THE LIGHT
AND THE TIMINGS RIGHT
CAUGHT IN A RAGE OF FRIGHT
AND YOUR HAND STILL IN THE JAR

FORGIVE ME JESUS THERE WAS NO REASON
BUT MAYBE GREED THAT STRUCK ME BLIND
FORGET EXCUSES MY LIES ARE USELESS
AND I’M CONVICTED OF THE CRIME

CAUSE I’M CAUGHT IN THE LIGHT
AND THE TIMINGS RIGHT
CAUGHT IN A RAGE OF FRIGHT
AND MY HAND STILL IN THE JAR

CAUSE I’M CAUGHT IN THE LIGHT
AND THE TIMINGS RIGHT
CAUGHT IN A RAGE OF FRIGHT
AND MY HAND STILL IN THE JAR

FORGIVE ME JESUS THERE WAS NO REASON
BUT MAYBE GREED THAT STUCK ME BLIND...

Hey Feter
Glad you enjoyed this. Yes! Tony was a pleasure to play with. I actually used a track from a jam with the old band FEEL. Human error was an issue but I managed to Piece parts in. Tony can really entertain a crowd just by himself.

Very cool track John
Like the whole thing, but the piano and guitars just shine on this one. Like the message in the lyrics too.

Keep up the good work my friend, you're doing some really fine work.

Glad you liked the guitars and the piano... this song has been worn like an old 45. Vocals definitely need some work. Thanks for dropping by.

I believe Tony was heavy on some pain killer when he played this. It didn't matter, he always played well. It was a great experience to play with a real piano player.

I remember this
Love the Logic tweak! Sound is much brighter- more clarity. This is still one of my favorites, John. Great message in the song too.

Very strong southern rock with shades of MTB and Skynyrd... and all Texas Feel at the same time!

I think you told me you were working on some vocals... he he. I'm glad you liked this version as well. I believe this is the 3rd version posted here on MJ.

Thanks for checking this out... I use to make the old band play this a lot. It's been tweaked several times. My friend Terry played a killer lead on this live. He did the same on another Logic version as well. Always a pleasure to read your comments.

This is a really simple song to play and I find some of the simplest the easiest for a band to build upon. I appreciate your comments and encouragement.

I'm happy you dropped by to take a listen. I guess it's better I keep my hands on the neck of the guitar than in the jar. Thanks for the encouragement.

One of my absolute favs
This is one of my absolute TEXASFEEL favs!
Thank you for a new mix .. or is it a completeley new take? I had my computer crash so I don't have axess to the previous version of the song right now .. but this sounds new, fresh and nice anyway, more clear than I remember the old one!

And the guitar solos you give here!!! .. I'm afraid I'm repeating myself, but .. I could listen to them for hours. That's no exaggeration. I completely LOVE them.

Nice, Nice
Everything rolls together, It almost sounds like a Marshall Tucker Band thing at first,(no offence hopefuly)
I do enjoy the little lead lines that get thrown in from time to time.
Keep it up.
