lyrics

ROCK N ROLL MAN
Verse 1

Years ago a wise man said to me,
“Young boy a rock n roll man you’ll be”
Travel far and wide from town to town,
When you feel down the blues will be your sound,
You’ll meet a brother, who feels the same way,
And together they’ll be hell to pay,
Beer, joints and whisky,
I don’t know how the hell ill play...

Chorus

Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
Load the gear
Crank up the volume till I become...

A rock n roll
A real rock n roll man
At home on the open road (x2)

Verse 2

Years ago a wise man said to me,
“Young boy a rock n roll man you’ll be”
Travel far and wide from town to town,
When you feel down the blues will be your sound,
You’ll meet a brother, who feels the same way,
And together they’ll be hell to pay,
Beer, joints and whisky,
I don’t know how the hell ill play...

Chorus

Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
Load the gear
Crank up the volume till I become...

A rock n roll

Guitar solo

Chorus

Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
Load the gear
Crank up the volume till I become...

Breakdown

A rock n roll
A real rock n roll man
At home on the open road (x2)
Another city goes by...Another neon maze in my eyes.
Ahow, how, how
Ooooh

Double Chorus


Time after time
Keep the gear rolling
Transits and truck stops...Oh Lord!
Drive all night
Sleep through the morning
Hangovers and headaches...Oh God!
The gears held together with duct tape
Missed another sound check...Oh Lord!
Sleep in the van
Sore backs & strained limbs
Another god dammed headache...Oh God!
Time to play
Crank up the volume
Till I become....A rock n roll man

about

Bacchus Baracus Glasgow, UK

After writing a few songs locked away in a cottage in Highland Perthshire. Gaz decided to undertake a recording project in the Bottling Plant studio with a bunch of mates.
After a few Jams the guys thought they had some good tunes to offer up, and it was decided to make it a full time band out of the project.
With Mr MacDuff at the helm, 4 songs were recorded for the first E.P.
