lyrics

Midnight Cowboy on a trip
Bobby Dylan singin’ Blowin’ in the Wind
Just his chopper, ridin’ with ghost horses
Nashville skyline, and nothing more

Rider, Ride on
Take your bike and chase the dawn
Easy rider, don’t take it slow
Each horizon will never know

He rides free and easy, becoming one with the wind
The long stretch of road is his best friend
He’s just a blank page, lives without a plan
He holds his baby close ridin’ every bend

Rider, Ride on
Take your bike and chase the dawn
Easy rider, don’t take it slow
Each horizon will never know

He’s called the Easy rider,
He’d give you the shirt of his back
Strong willed he rides again
And rides off in a flash

Rider, Ride on
Take your bike and chase the dawn
Easy rider, don’t take it slow
Each horizon will never know

There’s a river, flowing to the sea
Wherever it goes, he’ll always be
He said, na hey you, eat a peach for peace
All that easy rider ever wanted was to be free

His woman lets down her hair, as it falls right to her knees
With a daisy chain and some Indian beads,
He has many things to mend as he passes that milestone
He howls “ I will get by” as he rides off into the unknown

The two spent two years putting together talented musicians to create a revival of the old ways of music. In doing this, they found Louis Montgomery, and the twin sisters Willow and Savannah Patten and formed Pretty Odd. ... more
