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'.....
