I'm Gonna Ride by NorthPoint
Alan Crouch, lyrics and music

From the top of the world
In this dirty hotel room
I see a million lights but I don't like the view
The time has come time to move on
Just like the last time, I never lasts long
I believe the road's my only home so
I'm Gonna Ride

Walked around this morning up all night
Prowlin' with the tomcats I'll sleep when it's light
I can't seem to settle down Tumblin' from town to town
My spirit can't be tamed and trouble's my middle name
I believe the road's my only home so
I'm Gonna Ride

I need to wander, I need to be free
That road is the doorway, these wheels are the key
Milwaukee Iron, opened up wide
The wind in my hair and chills up my spine
I believe the road's my only home...
so I'm Gonna Ride

Roadhouse rules
I can see the stage behind chicken wire to keep the bottles thrown in the fights out front from hitting the band. Great biker vibe and blues tunes!

So, I got here late and they put me in front of the Bass amp over left of the stage.
I could make it out alright by the last verse, Keys to the Highway and all. Very Cool.

Wish I'd been more out front where I could hear the Vocals better, more center-forward and the lead guitar was on the other side of the stage, too.

I'll get there earlier next show.

best regards,

Head wagging blues.
Sometimes the vocal is fighting with the strong instrumentation, but even so, you got it going on. Thanks.
