Remember Jim Croce
Remember Jim Croce ? Some of you may be too young But have still probably heard his songs, What a great Musician And what a great story teller . I Really love the way his songs told very clear Stories about the people he wrote about.
For Jim Croce A Musical Career Meant Many Days And Long Nights On the road. A lot Of Out of the way College Campuses and playing in small towns. Sometimes close to 200 days a year.
On September 20 1973 in Natchitoches La.
The Small Plane not unlike hundreds he and his band used to get from gig to gig. Somehow caught a tree at the end of a dark runway. The Little plane got hung up crashed and killed the whole band. What A Sad day for music.
No Body could know what this world would be like had Jim Croce Been alive all these years. But we do know something This Man Wrote and sang some great music. In His time he had his share of great songs.
So Lets Remember Jim Croce a little.
Remember Time in a Bottle ?Operator ? Leroy Brown ? I still love those songs today. And Always will, Although when I hear this music I only Think About Jim Croce, And how sad is it he is not still here. What A GUY.
Like the pine trees lining the winding road I\’ve got a name, I\’ve got a name Like the singing bird and the croaking toad I\’ve got a name, I\’ve got a name
And I carry it with me like my daddy did But I\’m living the dream that he kept hid Movin me down the highway Rolling me down the highway Movin\’ ahead so life won\’t pass me by
Like the north wind whistling down the sky I\’ve got a song, I\’ve got a song
Like the whippoorwill and the baby\’s cry I\’ve got a song, I\’ve got a song And I carry it with me and I sing it loud If it gets me nowhere, I\’ll go there proud
Moving me down the highway Rolling\’ me down the highway Movin\’ ahead so life won\’t pass me by And I\’m gonna go there free
Like the fool I am and I\’ll always be I\’ve got a dream, I\’ve got a dream They can change their minds but they can\’t change me I\’ve got a dream, I\’ve got a dream
Oh, I know I could share it if you want me to If you\’re going my way, I\’ll go with you Movin\’ me down the highway Rolling me down the highway Movin\’ ahead so life won\’t pass me by
If I could save Time in a bottle If I had a box just for wishes And dreams that had never come true The box would be empty Except for the memory Of how they were answered by you..
But there never seems to be enough time To do the things you want to do Once you find them
I\’ve looked around enough to know That you\’re the one I want to go Through time with
The first thing that I\’d like to do Is to save every day\’Til Eternity passes away Just to spend them with you
If I could make days last forever If words could make wishes come true I\’d save every day like a treasure and then,Again, I would spend them with you
Enjoy Jim Croce every time u get a chance it will change your Day for the better….(*!*)
