LET THAT TAPE KEEP ROLLING (C:12/L:5)

well i woke up in the morning
i said a morning prayer
i washed my face with soap
and ran my fingers through my hair

i went down to the studio
on hollywood and vine
the clock said 'leven thirty
well i made it just in time

i greeted the musicians
i grabbed the nearest chair
i started playing my guitar
and told the engineer

c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon c'mon c'mon

the first song that we cut was called
"lonely by myself"
i'll do the vocal later
you can leave it on the shelf

the second song we cut was called
"unlucky blues"
the session's getting better now
we're turning on the juice

the last song took us seven takes
the first one took us ten
let's give it all we got
and do the chorus once again

c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
let it roll

do you hear me singing
on your record machine
the piano banging
the guitars twanging
the water cooler's clanging
the light bulb's hanging
yes the music's playing
the production's clean
cross fade all the tracks
don't leave no spaces in between

c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon

lead guitars

well i started out ten years ago
my guitar in my hand
i took the music in my heart
and played it with a band

i went down to the tower
to record upon this rock
i sang it like i felt it
i just let the music talk
i know where i am going
and i know who i must be
don't care how long it takes me
cause theres lots of things to see

c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon let that love keep flowing
c'mon let your faith keep growing
c'mon get that Good News going
c'mon let your light keep shining
c'mon be careful what you're signing

c'mon let that love keep flowing
c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon
aoww hehheh
alright alright
He come walking down my street
He come up to my room
He knock on my door
He come into my heart
He make me feel so good so good
so good so good so tough

i'm going Home
bou bou bou bou bou bou
bou bou bou bou bou bou
bou bou bou bou bou
back Home
He'll come down make you feel alright
like a thief in the middle of the night
in the middle of the night
cha heh heh heh heh hah cha cha
ooh la la la ta ta la la sha la la la
ooh la la la ta ta la sha la la

c'mon let that tape keep rolling
c'mon c'mon
When the Lord gets ready
you got to move

heh heh wanna do it again?
