Uptempo rocker @ 153 BPM, written by Rodney Nichols, Male Vocal, BPBB album, Blue Moon Shine
Mood/ Anxious but happy feel. About; This aging rocker is feeling his mortality, " I wish I was 20, I wish I was 30, hell, I wish I was 40, but that was many years ago". He fears he's loosing his grip on reality as he happily wakes up with a long legged beauty sitting beside him on the bed him, the same girl he had seen early in the day. He turns around and she's gone. He gets a wake up call from the old grim reaper with an open invitation for me, RSVP. Sweet young thing saying goodbye to me. This is a fun, light hearted ,upbeat rocker, bringing to light the many underlying realities for us aging pickers.
I woke up this morning, crosstie walking with a long legged thing sitting beside my bed, messing with my head. She made me wish I was 20, wish I was 30, hell, I wish I was 40 But that was many years ago, now I’m down the road, Sweet young thing saying goodbye to me,
I must have been dreaming sleepy headed scheming, My head was off the hook, my mind was out of control I was on a roll, She was a vision of beauty a cyberspace cutie, I did a double take, turned around and the girl was gone, Left me all alone, sweet young thing saying goodbye to me,
I wake up by myself nearly every day, thinking about the good old times, I was quite the ladies man, I must say A legend in my own mind, Sweet Misery, the older I get the better I used to be.
Lead Ride 3rd verse:
Got up I was aching, my hands were shaking, I had to have a drink to get myself out of bed, Johnny Walker Red Phone ringing off the wall it was a wake up call, The old Grimm Reaper with an open invitation for me, RSVP Sweet young thing saying goodbye to me, Sweet Misery
Sweet Misery, Sweet Misery
