GREYHOUND BUS mpeg 4




I was singing and playing music with the band each week on Toronto stages. The band was
JOHNNY ROCK AND THE ANGELS.

 I'd often go to the north to see some rivers and mountains and clifftops where I'd built a hut with a woodstove in it for shelter.
         Often I'd hop the midnight bus for passage. And I'd take the 2:00AM bus back in four or five days. I have a lot of memories of those buses in the dark.
          This is where I wrote this song.

Note:  This is my folk singer's voice. In front of a six man band I kinda had to howl. This voice would not be heard in front of a full band. When you're singing loudly - your voice rises up an octave.
            I miss this voice.

"AND THAT GREYHOUND BUS ROLLS ON
AS SOON AS IT ARRIVES, IT'S GONE
AND THROUGH THE LEAVES I SEE
       THE DAWN
TURN TO LIGHTS OF NEON,
AS THAT BUS MOVES ON."
