From the album "Centerfield", 1985
Sometimes I think life is just a rodeo,
The trick is to ride and make it to the bell.
But there is a place, sweet as you will ever know,
In music and love, and things you never tell.
You see it in their face, secrets on the telephone,
A time out of time, for you and no one else.
Hey let's go all over the world,
Rock and roll girls, rock and roll girls.
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
If I had my way, I'd shuffle off to buffalo;
Sit by the lake, and watch the world go by.
Ladies in the sun, listenin' to the radio,
Like flowers on the sand, a rainbow in my mind.
Yeah, yeah yeah!
Fogerty was great I remember when i was a kid the parents would go out we'd throw ccr on the "HiFi" turned up to 10. We like Amercan music up here in BC. Not a lotta guys can play lead guitar and sing, very special person.
I remember being friends with a Record Store Owner and of course I bought a lot from his shop . This was in 1983 . We would talk music and Creedence came up one day and talk of John Fogerty. I said I am looking forward to John Fogerty making a comeback one day . He said ole cliche " Many times those are failures and it is better to let sleeping dogs lie " Well 1985 rolled around and when this song from the Centerfield LP was played on the Station Iistened to for the first time . DJ didn't introduce it , he just asked for callers to identify who this was. He said the switchboard got lit up . Needless to say my friend was wrong and only kept his shop around for 5 more years BUT I do miss his Store and all record Stores for that matter .
