Truth and Fiction

Ride the Sky

There's music to be found
Not just in Nashville
Kelowna hanging 'round
Moon was on the bill
Then again up in T O
Set the tour alarm
Again they hit the road
To the country and a barn

Spirit on the road
People find the link
You cannot tame a tiger
With animal instinct
The moon’s a constant force
And no one ever asks why
It waxes and it wanes
Hangs and rides the sky

Crossed country on a train
A long and rolling gig
No fortune little fame
Free spirit living big
With karma comes the play
Out on feathered wings
Flying the high way
And everything it brings

Spirit on the road
People find the link
You cannot tame a tiger
With animal instinct
The moon’s a constant force
And nobody’s asking why
It waxes and it wanes
Hangs and rides the sky

Music is a fragile art
Played on and on and on
Sharp edge is the craft
Here before it's gone
Rhythm rides the rails
Guitar mandolin
Following the tracks of
A song that keeps comin'

Spirit on the road
People find the link
You cannot tame a tiger
With animal instinct
The moon’s a constant force
And nobody’s asking why
It waxes and it wanes
Hangs and rides the sky
