JACK CLEMENT ONCE SAID:
WE ARE IN THE FUN BUSINESS AND IF YOUR NOT HAVING FUN ON STAGE…
YOUR NOT DOING YOUR JOB
WELL I CAN HONESTLY SAY..I HAVE DONE MY JOB.. AN DONE IT WELL
( SOMETIMES TOO WELL )
I HAVE BEEN WRITING MY SONGS AND SINGING THE BLUES MOST OF MY LIFE….
WHEN I WASN’T WRITTING IT…… I WAS LIVING IT…AND LIVING IT HARD
AS A YOUNG MAN I WAS WILD AS THE RIVER AN TWO TIMES THE COLD
I TRUELY BELIEVE MUSIC SAVED ME FROM A LIFE BEHIND BARS…
AND OPENED MY HEART TO A LIFE MOST JUST DREAM ABOUT
I CAN REMEMBER BEING A KID IN REFORM SCHOOL…..
SITTING ON THE HOT BOX
(a metel box that went over the radiators so you wouldn’t get burned )
AND LISTENING TO BRUCE CHENNEL SING A SONG CALLED…HEY BABY
AND I WOULD PLAY THE HARMONICA PART OVER AND OVER
TILL I GOT IT JUST LIKE THE RECORD
( DELBERT McCLINTON play’d on the record )
A FEW YEARS AGO I GOT TO PLAY WITH BRUCE ON THAT SONG
( an so proud to have the privlidge to call him my friend )
…IT WAS A FULL CIRCLE MOMENT FOR ME
LIKE A DREAM.. MY DREAM…
HAD COME TRUE…HOLLY SHIT!!!
I KNEW RIGHT THEN IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO JUST BELIEVE IN GOD…
YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS
YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
AND IF YOU DO THAT…YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE
