Couldn't Get It Right ~ Climax Blues Band 1977.
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 06:45 PM by jus_the_facts
Climax Blues Band...ahhhh reminds me o' bein' a weeee lass and lovin' the radio... :headbang:



Time was drifting, this rock had to roll
So I hit the road and made my getaway
Restless feeling, really got a hold
I started searching for a better way

But I kept on looking for a sign
In the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light
No I couldn't see the light
I kept on looking for a way
To take me through the night
I couldn't get it right
I couldn't get it right

L.A. fever made me feel alright
But I must admit it got the best of me
Getting down, so deep
I could have drowned
Now, I can't get back the way I used to be


New York City took me with the tide
And I nearly died from hospitality
Left me stranded, took away my pride
Just another no account fatality


But I kept on looking for a sign
In the middle of the night
But I couldn't see the light
No I couldn't see the light
I kept on looking for a way
To take me through the night
I couldn't get it right
I couldn't get it right

3. I remember it
But then again, I remember every pop song from the 70's - I was in high school '75-'78

I was watching HS Jeopardy this week, and one of the categories was "Disney Radio" (since Jeopardy is an ABC show - isn't synergy cool???) and I didn't know a single song they mentioned.

9. They're difficult to find on CD, though.
I've been trying for years.
