Oh to be 18 again, starting out on life's rugged path, the open road of the unknown, if like me at that age all you were interested in were girls, cars, music, girls, beer...the exhuberance of youth is what this song is about, part 1 of mini opera "The Four Ages of Man" on my new album in progress "Keep Calm and Play Blues".

Guitar - Comedy & Tragedy G+D+G+b+
Amp - Dual Terror Fat Channel / Marshall 4x10 cranked to the metal!
Drums - Roland TD-12 V-Drums

PLAY LOUD!

READY FOR THE ROAD

GOT MY SUITCASE PACKED
GOT MY MARSHALL STACK
AIN'T TURNIN' BACK
GOT MY PLASTIC MAC
GOT A RUSTY JACK.....IN THE BACK OF MY CAR

GOT MY MOBILE PHONE
GOT A BANKIN' LOAN
GOT A TRAFFIC CONE
GOT MY DOGGIN' BONE
WANNA HEAR YOU MOAN....IN THE BACK OF MY CAR

CHORUS - I'M READY, I'M READY, I'M READY
READY FOR THE ROAD x2

GOT MY HARD EARNED PAY
I'M GOIN' AWAY
GOT MY BED TO LAY
WANNA HEAR YOU SAY
I WANT YOU TODAY....IN THE BACK OF MY CAR

GOT MY OLD JD
AND MY CBG
GIRL CAN'T YOU SEE
SO GOOD TO BE FREE
JUST YOU AN' ME....IN THE BACK OF MY CAR

CHORUS

GOT MY GUN
GOT THE MORNIN' SUN
AND WHEN DAY IS DONE
WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOME FUN
'CAUSE YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE....IN THE BACK OF MY CAR

I'M GONNA ROCK THE WORLD
WITH MY FLAG UNFURLED
'CAUSE YOU'RE THE KINDA GIRL
WHO CAN DANCE AND TWIRL
I WANNA SEE YOU CURL...IN THE BACK OF MY CAR

CHORUS

Digly -

The Dream: You buy a sparkling camper and spend the summer converting it into a Drag racer, you take it to Santa Pod where it sees off all the competition. You have hero status, but you are beaten up by angry competitors and have to buy a stick from the shop to fight them off. There's so much action that you run out of Sanatogen.

The Reality: You buy a sparkling camper.  You run out of money, the camper sits in your garage in pieces, depreciates and rusts. It springs a leak, so do you.  The Mrs nags you to trade it in for something sensible, like a Zafira.... (-;
