So many songs, some forgotten
Sung on the road and the road was long
Lost, remembered nights of music
Lost, remembered days of song

So many songs sung to strangers
In weatherboard towns without a name
In the glory of the stagelights
Every town looks the same

so many promises that were broken
So many dreams got in the way
Torn up posters outside the stage door
Who ripped them down, I cant say

Olivia wrote to say that she loved me
I never knew her face or her name
She said every song that I sang I sang for her
If that is true I'll sing them again

I'll pack some bags and I'm goin
where I'm going ,I think you know
I'll go anywhere as just as long as they let me
let me play and sing my song

So many songs, some forgotten
I'll sing on the road and the road is long
Long nights, Long nights ofnights of music
And I'll make long days, days of song

Engaging story line. Interesting voice tone - sort of rougher than the lyrics suggest, in a way? Plenty of variety in the backing, although a sailing guitar solo would be good (where's Sig when you need him?!) Entertaining! Is it now in the repertoire?

Bit late, Franc. Sorry. I'm guessing life on the road is full of plenty of lows only partly counter-balanced by the fleeting highs of being centre stage under the spotlight. Yet for some the siren call is inescapable. You paint a vivid picture here, Franc, sung with heartfelt verve. Nicely done. Thanks. Take care.
