Soothes My Soul
by Charles Messina

Remember when "Suzie" wore her dresses tight 
When Elton John was Singin' 'bout "Saturday night" 
Singin' bout the rocket man and his old blue jeans 
While Arlo Guthrie sung a song 'bout a train down in New Orleans
Remember Led Zeppelin when they first came out 
The Beatles were Singin' songs that would make you "Twist-N-Shout" Pink Floyd was Singin' "Money"- wasn't off the "Wall" 
But "Mandy" hit the top charts...if I do recall 
Talkin' 'bout the era 'round nineteen seventy-five 
Right before the disco music came alive 
I don't know 'bout you, but I still like my Rock-N-Roll 
Jerry G. and Johnny Cash and Billy Joel 
Bruce Springsteen's got my number when I'm "Out On The Streets" 
Rolling Stones- "Painted Black"...has some really cool beats 
Elvis Presley was an influence ...he is said to be the "King" 
But Charlie Daniel's "That Devil" Well, he sure could sing 
Meatloaf came about like a "Bat Out Of Hell" 
Neil Diamond sung "Sweet Caroline" and he sang it well 
The Doors sung a song 'bout "The Soft Parade" 
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" really made the grade 
Eric Clapton picking on his lead guitar 
People say Jeff Beck was the best guitarist...by far 
So many great guitarist's it's so hard for me to to choose 
Johnny Winter and Muddy Waters sure can play those blues 
Remembering all the music from the good old days 
Jimi Hendricks Sang a song 'bout some kind of "Purple Haze" 
Jethro Tull was Singin' songs 'bout a "Locomotive Breathe" 
And Elton sung a song about "Diana's" death 
Bob Seger sang a song..."That good ole...Rock-N-Roll" 
Gotta love that music, that just soothes my soul 
Remembering all the music from my younger years 
So many great musicians- brings my soul to tears.
