Rider On The Storm

 She gave the man her ticket stub
 To see the 'Doors' perform
 She always liked to hear them sing
 'Riders on the Storm'

 She got lost in the melody
 As the music took her higher
 The rhythms ignited her passion
 As they played 'Light my Fire'

 She loved lead singer Jim Morrison
 His poetry kept the music alive
 The band then took her for a musical ride 
 With 'Moonlight Drive'

 Then the music reached a fever pitch
 As rhythms began to spew
 She went wild when she heard
 'Hello I Love You'

 Then the concert ended....the music, died,
 Some weeks later, she heard the news....she cried
 Jim Morrison had given the Reaper his ticket stub
 And joined the infamous '27 club'

 He went away on a Crystal Ship with silver wings
 Sailing on waves of guitars strings
 In the distance, dark clouds began to form
 And Jim soon became, a 'Rider on the Storm'.....

Love your verse Joseph, a brilliant group for sure. My favorite is the end that they used for the intro in apocalypse now. Good luck. Tom.
