Story

THIS IS THE STORY OF HOW MY ELDER BROTHER, BILLY, WON HIS WIFE. THE TITLE SHOULD ACTUALLY BE AMY, AMY. THIS SOUND IS REALLY WHAT I DIG TO PLAY, STRAIGHT FORWARD AND STRAIGHT AHEAD UNPRETENTIOUS ROCK AND ROLL, LIKE COUNTRY MUSIC THE HARDEST THING TO DO IS TO BE SIMPLE AND MAKE IT COUNT,WHY? i WILL SHARE THIS WITH YOU, TO BE SIMPLE IT HAS TO BE PERFECT.IF I MAY SAY TO YOU MY BROTHER BILLY HAD AN IMPACT ON ME WHEN I PLAYED OTHER INSTRUMENTS BESIDES THE GUITAR.HE WAS FOOLING WITH THE HARMONICA FOR A LONG TIME, I MESSED WITH IT FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS AND SAID "DON'T YOU WANT TO SOUND LIKE THIS WITH IT? AND AH WOOO WOOO WOOO, I WAS COPPING LICKS FROM "2120" BY THE STONES WITH BRIAN ON THE HARMONICA THIS OF COURSE LED TO ME GETTING AN ASS-WHIPPING FOR BEING A SMART ASS,HE WANTED ME TO SOUND LIKE B.B. KING ON GUITAR AND WANTED TO GET ME A GIBSON 335 WITH VARITONE. YOU CAN SEE HIM IN THE MOVIE "WOODSTOCK" HE IS THE GUY RIDING A MOTORCYCLE WHILST A GUY IS TRYING TO BE A STAR ON ACOUSTIC GUITAR.I HAD TO WRITE THIS TUNE DUE TO THE TREMENDOUS IMPACT AMY HAD UPON OUR SORELY DISFUNTIONAL FAMILY. MY MOTHER WAS A WIDOW ATTEMPTING TO RAISE FOUR CHILDREN. AFTER OUR FATHER PASSED AWAY WE WERE ALL LOST LIKE A SHIP ON THE SEA WITHOUT A SAIL. THE INTRODUCTION OF AMY TO OUR FAMILY WAS AS THOUGH GOD HAD SENT AN ANGEL TO HELP US. THIS SONG WAS WRITTEN IN UNDER HALF AN HOUR. AS A WRITER YOU STRUGGLE SO MUCH TO WORK IT OUT AND IF YOU STICK WITH IT YOUR BEST THING COMES FROM A DIVINE INSPIRATION IN WHICH YOU ARE NOT A CREATOR AS MUCH AS YOU ARE A RELIABLE MESSENGER. OR ER..AHH...A PRODUCER AS IT WERE......I WORK HARD AT IT. AND THE STORY IS NOT FINISHED IF I MAY SAY THAT TO YOU BECAUSE I AM IN LOVE-REALLY HARD, WITH AMY'S LITTLE SISTER, SALLY ROBINSON ALL I CAN TELL YOU IS WHEN YOU KISS A GIRL ON HER SWEET LIPS AND THE WHOLE SKY EXPLODES WITH FIREWORKS AH, THAT HAS GOT TO BE PRETTY MUCH IT.HER LIPS ARE SO SWEET,I LOVE TO KISS HER REAL SOFTLY HARDLY TOUCHING MY LIPS TO HERS...THIS MAY SEEM REAL BORING TO MOST OF YOU, I DON'T CARE IT DOES NOT BORE ME I AM NOT A PLAYER TYPE OF GUY,IF A MAN CAN REALLY LOVE ONE WOMAN THAT IS AS GOOD AS HE S GONNA DO,PLUS THAT IS GOING TO TAKE ALL OF YOUR SPARE TIME TO KEEP IT WORKING..IF YOU REAllY LOVE HER.SHE HAS AGREED AND IS GOING ALONG WITH YOU SHE WANTS HER HAPPY ENDING.THAT IS HER RIGHT, EH?....WHEN ONSTAGE IT SEEMS THAT WAY TO THE WHOLE AUDIENCE AND IT'S OKAY TO THINK THAT WAY BECAUSE IT IS A PERFORMANCE...A FANTASTIC HIGH THAT I AM FIRMLY ADDICTED TO.AND BABY LET ME TELL YOU, I AM OLDER NOW BUT I HAVE STILL GOT THE MOVES THAT MAKE THE GIRLS JUMP AND SHOUT.SOME OF THE GUYS TOO.. YET WHEN THE SHOW IS OVER IT IS THE QUIET AFTER THE STORM AND IMMEDIATLY REALITY SETS IN. YOU MAY BE SPENDING CHRISTMAS IN VIENNA BUT YOU ARE ON TOUR AND AWAY FROM THOSE THAT NOT ONLY ARE CLOSEST TO YOU, BUT THEY ARE STILL ALIVE. SO AT ANY RATE, THIS IS QUITE THE SILLY LOVE SONG AND THEY NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE.
