On My Way

Here's a nice little song, with lyrics by William. It's a mood piece that are just vague enough for you to assign whatever meaning that makes it personal to you. The original lyrics don't have a date, but I'd put them somewhere around 1980 - 1982. This is the first they've been set to music, though, and they were re-tooled for that.

This is just me on the piano, but if I were to produce it, I think I'd do it as Bluegrass... banjo, fiddle, guitar, double-bass, and and brushed percussion.


On My Way

-- William Hoover

There's a grassy knoll I've been dreaming to
And a fountain not too far away
And I'll be sipping that water
As soon as tomorrow
'Cause I'm leaving today
I'm On My Way

There's a cool water summer on my mind
And a breeze blowing over the bay
And by Tuesday this week
I'll be off of this street
And settling down to stay
I'm On My Way

On My Way
And soon I will be far away
Ain't gonna stay
Sometimes here -- always on my way

There's a shady tree I've been thinking of
And a sunset to follow that day
And I can't wait to go
Into my Tomorrow
Say goodbye to Today
I'm on my way

And there's a moon in the river staring at me
From the eye in the glare of a wave
And I don't even know where this river is flowing
And don't really care what they say


On My Way
And soon I will be far away
Ain't gonna stay
Sometimes here -- always on my way

On My Way
On My Way
On My Way
On My Way
