Passing Thru

(Perry Bach)

This is a throwback Waylon style tune about womanizing good ole boys. Lines 1&2 are present situation, line 3 the Caddy, and line 4 an empty life lived. It is a humorous yet serious topic that I could relate to on a personal level.

Cruising thru life in a black Cadillac He's the King of the roads and he ain't looking back It's got cracked leather seats and a leaky sunroof He's rolling half empty with an Elvis tattoo. He puffs Swisher Sweets and blows smoke at the moon Dabs on Musk Oil and croons ole Hank tunes. It's got a polished gold trim and filthy ash trays He's living too fast with no power brakes. Chorus: He rolls thru new towns and honks at the girls The King of the roads is the King of his world So don't turn around when he's honking at you. He loves that black Caddy and he's just passing thru. He's waxes up the Caddy and it shines like a mirror Three wives are now ex's but he don't really care. It's a 454 with chrome dual exhaust The luster is now fading and his kids have moved on He pulls into Reno and orders tap beer His first love's long remarried and lives somewhere near It's got white wall tires and plays eight track tapes She's got a new home and he's locked at the gate Chorus: Still he rolls thru Reno and drinks with the girls The king of the roads near the end of his world So skip the next round when he's romancing you He loves that black Caddy and he's just passing thru Cruising down XXXX XXXXXX XXXX X XXXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXX X XXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XX XX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX

How do you count

By Adelina Stoyanova

It`s about time and how focused we are on its pace. It`s all calculating, scheduling, trying to make time, to stop time, to make plans according to time. Life is passing by, and we are butchering it, trying to make it fit where it doesn`t, in some man-made construction made out of measurements. It is (once more) a straight-forward song about a universal truth.
