Bringing Back A Meme

Take_This_Tune

Once upon a time I tried to start a meme called “Take This Tune”.  The idea was to take the lyrics of a song and tell me a story about your life that responded to the posted song.  It may have been a little too much honesty for some, so I’m trying something different.  Just comment on the song I’ve posted.  This one is the title song from the Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris album “All The Road Running”.    It may be a simple description of a musician being on the road or it may be about the whole of your life.  What do you think of the song?

“All The Roadrunning”

A million miles our vagabond heels
Clocked up beneath the clouds
They’re counting down to show time
When we do it for real with the crowds
Air miles are owing
But they don’t come for free
And they don’t give you any for pain
But if it’s all for nothing
All the road running’s
Been in vain

The rim shots come down like cannon fire
And thunder off the wall
There’s a man in every corner
And each one is giving his all
This is my fife
This is my drum
So you never will hear me complain
And if it’s all for nothing
All the roadrunning’s
Been in vain

All the roadrunning
All the roadrunning

Well if you’re inclined
To go up on the wall
It can only be fast and high
And those who don’t like the danger
Soon find something different to try
When there’s only a ringin’ in your ears
And an echo down memory lane
But if it’s all for nothing
All the roadrunning’s
Been in vain

All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning

The show’s packing up
I sit and watch the convoy
Leaving town
There’s no pretending I’m not a fool,
For riding around and around
Like the pictures you keep of your old wall of death
You showed me one time on the plane
But if it’s all for nothing
All the roadrunning’s
Been in vain

A million miles of vagabond sky
Clocked up above the clouds
I’m still your man for the roaming
For as long as there’s roamin’ allowed
There’ll be a rider
And there’ll be a wall
As long as the dreamer remains
And if it’s all for nothing
All the roadrunning’s
Been in vain

All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
