A TURN OF THE TIDES

My favorite station
Is 94.9
I'm blasting out the country
All the time

Some kid pulled up next to me
Car shaking from his Rap
I was born in the sixties
I can't get used to that

~~~*Chorus*~~~
But I'm burning for a turn of the tides
Something shook loose
Couldn't be confined
Now I'm burning for a turn of the tides
A Native sensation
Veiled by the times
A sovereign awareness
Impressed upon my mind
Yeah I'm burning for a turn of the tides
~~*~~

Got me some "Led Zeppelin"
Rocking in my car
Loving that "Jimmy Page"
Commanding his guitar

Made me think of "Gilmour"
Another English Boy
Found myself lost with him 
In the magic of "Pink Floyd"

~~~*2nd Chorus*~~~
Yeah...
I was burning for a turn of the tides
Something shook loose
Couldn't be confined
I was burning for a turn of the tides
A native sensation 
Veiled by the times
A sovereign awareness
Impressed upon my mind
Yeah I was burning for a turn of the tides
~~*~~

Washed and waxed my car
Was shining up the chrome
Feeling satisfaction
For "The Rolling Stones"

Then I cranked "The Beatles"
Some "Marley" and "The Who"
My friends started asking...
Man what's got into you.....

I Said...

~~~*3rd Chorus*~~~
I was burning for a turn of the tides
Something shook loose
Couldn't be confined
I was burning for a turn of the tides
A native sensation
Veiled by the times
A sovereign awareness
Impressed upon my mind
Yeah I was burning for a turn of the tides
~~*~~

I'm feeling quite euphoric
Raising "The Grateful Dead"
Got "The Best of CCR"
That I'm inhaling next

"BTO" and "Boston"
"The Cars" and "Three Dog Night"
"The Doors" and "The Eagles"
"Rush"~"Earth Wind and Fire"

There are so many more
Playing in my mind
Yeah... 
It was time for a turn of the tides
~~~*Chorus*~~~
