Bachman & Turner – Let It Ride (Live At The Roseland Ballroom NYC)

February 18, 2019 Leave a comment

Goodbye, I lied
Don’t cry, would you let it ride
Goodbye, I lied
Don’t cry, would you let it ride

You can’t see the mornin’, but I can see the light
(Try, try, try to let it ride)
While you’ve been out runnin’, I’ve been waitin’ half the night
(Try, try, try to let it ride)

And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye or would you let it ride
And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye or would you let it ride

Seems my life is not complete, I’ve never see you smile
(Try, try, try to let it ride)
Baby, you want the forgivin’ kind and that’s just not my style
(Try, try, try to let it ride)

And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye or would you let it ride
And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye or would you let it ride

I’ve been doin’ things worthwhile, you’ve been bookin’ time
(Try, try, try to let it ride)

And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye, would you let it ride
And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye, would you let it ride

Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride (yeah, yeah)
Would you let it ride

Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride
Try, try, try to let it ride

Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride

Book Review: An American Saga – Juan Trippe and His Pan Am Empire

February 15, 2019 Leave a comment

This biography was such a long read, it felt like passage on the Pan Am China Clipper. But the story of Juan Trippe was worth the ride. Here is a man whose career in aviation spanned the years between the World War I rag wing Curtiss JN-4 “Jenny” to being instrumental in the development of the Boeing 747 as the launch customer. An American Saga is a fascinating read on the commercialization of airplanes, so often overshadowed by war stories. (4 of 5 Stars)

Heart ~ Live ~ Dreamboat Annie ~ 1976

February 14, 2019 Leave a comment

Heading out this morning into the sun
Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin’ one

Warm wind caress her
Her lover it seems
Oh, Annie
Dreamboat Annie my little ship of dreams

Going down the city sidewalk alone in the crowd
No one knows the lonely one whose head’s in the clouds

Sad faces painted over with those magazine smiles
Heading out to somewhere won’t be back for a while
