Rocker’s Requiem

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett
Misc. Demo || Steve Casteel: Rhythm Guitar | Andrew Reid: Bass | Bobby Shiflett: Lead Guitar | Ken Shiflett: Drums | Laura Stansell: Vocals

I remember the day you told me John Lennon died
I rose up from my bed and I cried
That night as Judas waited by the front gate
And took our love to feed our hate

Christ you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
I still miss the big easy
And the way things used to be

I remember the day you told me Jerry had passed
I felt so sad but raised my glass
So may your cup be full and full once again
May your light shine to the end

Christ you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
I still miss the big easy
And those nights on Bourbon Street.

 

Here is a live video shot a little bit before we got around to recording the demo. It was from a performance at the infamous “Nick” in Birmingham, Alabama | This performance features: Rhonda Ellis: Bass | Shea Heatherly: Drums | Laura Stansell: Vocals | Steve Casteel: Guitar | Bobby Shiflett: Guitar
