(Summer Night's)_Saint Helena's Step's
Hope to get this recorded soon. Been having some computer issues that are preventing me from doing any recording's

This is about the Summer Night's we would stay up almost all night long listening to the radio & playing .45's (records) on the front porch steps when we were Kid's


"(Summer Night's)_Saint Helena's Step's"

Verse 1
It was the summer 68'
Baby Boomer's
coming of age
that's when our
music was great
And now the
sun is going down
another day
we beat
Baltimore's heat

Verse 2
Radio news said
Neil and Buzz
will land on the moon
listening to
Casey Kasem's
top 40 Rock
Tune's

Chorus
it was the best
it was the best
the best days of our life's
summer nights
summer nights
Saint Helena's Step's

La La
La La
La La La
La La
La La
La La La

Chorus
it was the best
it was the best
the best days of our life's
falling asleep
playing .45's
Summer Nights

Verse 3
every night we sat
in our spot
through
thunder and rain
in our spot
we remained
Bertha,
Beautiful Queen
turns on her
Vintage Hi-Fi
to play her
45's

La La
La La
La La La
La La
La La
La La La

Chorus
it was the best
it was the best
the best days of our life's
we didn't know it then
we know it now
      --
(Chorus continuation)
Bertha, Mary
Helen, Bob
and I
name's and song's
carved in stone
summer nights, summer night's
on
Saint Helena's Steps
    --
(fade out)
La La
La la
La la la
La La
La la
La la la
La La
La la
La la la

"Those were the days my friend I hoped theyīll never end.................."
The past mostly seems been better in retrospect. 
   The airily days of our childhood never come back.

Those days when I sat with a cheap cassette recorder and mic at the radio and tried recording  my favs and new hits .

Those days when I got my first git and felt like Jimmy Page when I listened to "Stairway to heaven and played some "air guitar" to Jimīs solo.........wow..............and imagined being capapable playing such things once.......

Those were the days when my dad woke me up at 3.00 at night for watching the "Eagle" landing...............
......a big step for prospective TV-culture   

Those were the days when kids were jumping around in open air baths every day in summer with friends and looking at some cute girlies............

Sigh.............................a human can live a day only ONE TIME in life.

Good lyrics, Ralph. Do you wanna use it for the collab?

Hey ULI...Yeah..those were the days...eh?...I would like to use it for the collab...Actually, I've had these lyrics with the rest of the long forgotten put on the shelf stack of lyrics I have...I'm sure we could make them fit to the music ...of course just figuring it all out, setting it to the music is the trick....We'll se if we can pull a rabbit out of the hat somehow....I'll be in touch....

Hey ULI...I've been tinkering with my computer issues. I made a small recording not long ago(today). There were still some issues. I've seemed to have cleared up somethings. Like when I'm recording, my computer just shuts down. I've cleaned up some old files & created more space. Done some defragging..etc... It's still freezing up during recordings, but not as much. Just need to keep digging and try to get on top of all of this...

Hi Ralph
no prob. Doesnīt hurry . Iīm busy to explore my new git every day. Jamming around  8 hrs and more a day.
Itīs a good practice  and inspiration. And itīs PURE FUN & DELIGHT
Could you already listen to the last (raw) version with synth I sent? Do you have already an idea about the singing , the conception and structure? Verse, chorus etc?
