Reflections

Album: Million Mile Reflections (1979)
  • I remember you back in nineteen-fifty-six
    You had all the moves and you knew all the tricks
    You left all the ladies in a hell of a fix
    When your voice took wings

    Then you'd shake around and oh, how'd you sing
    Just an old boy from Memphis with a big diamond ring
    A country girl's prayer and a city girls dream, hail the King

    But it's alright now, keep on singin' loud
    It's alright now, heaven should be proud

    The fifties left town on a crowded dance floor
    The sixties came in with a bang and a roar
    The world heard a knock
    It was Janis at the door, they let her in

    And when it seemed this whole world was falling apart
    The houselights would fall and the music would start
    She'd be givin' us all the little piece of her heart once again

    But it's alright now, keep on singin' loud
    It's alright now, heaven should be proud

    It was October in St. Louis town
    When we heard that the Free Bird had fell to the ground
    We all said a prayer before we went down to play

    And Ronnie, my buddy, above all the rest
    I miss you the most and I loved you the best
    And now that you're gone I thank God
    I was blessed just to know you

    But it's alright now, keep on singin' loud
    It's alright now, heaven should be proud Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
