Another Forgetful Night



Another Forgetful Night

Not sure how it started , I expect how it ends
While starting with spirits , given by friends

We rode on our Harley's , to a place called Red Rock
And began our escape , a beginning Woodstock

The booze started flowing , as the party began
And soon I was wondering , how my clothes were in hand

Recollecting a girl , running round in the nude
and not wondering why , I thought it not crude

While beer and the moonshine , start talking to me
And sudden realization , that I couldn't see

The day turned to darkness , as the party went on
While trying to find sanity , but my mind was far gone

The laughter and crying , was a part of my life
A sudden escape , from my illusions of strife

I remembered imagining , what Mom and Dad thought
Then I lifted by glass , and the happiness brought ...

Who gives a “ rats ass “ , of what they would say
I'm living my life , and this is the way …

That life is a lesson , and I am the boss
But soon slamming jail cells , finds me blaming the sauce

My one only phone call , is soon on my mind
And calling my parents , and dialing while blind

My voice does now echo , and quivers within
And life is a lesson , that Dad will begin

To lecture and pardon , the horrible choice
That now ever haunts me , when I did once rejoice

Those drugs and the spirits , that entered my soul
And the sound of the music , that's great Rock and Roll …

Have now left me wondering , and thanking that I
Survived one more example , my defiant youth cry
