I have finally gotten my humble, little recording studio setup down here in Houston Land and have recorded some new music just in time for the summer. And apropos of the season, the song is about roller coasters and the carefree days of youth, among other things. Play and sing along with the convenient lyric sheet below. Repeat and share.

Getting high inside the car
In the parking lot of the amusement park
Two days into that sacred month of July
Your neck was bronze, mine was red
I might have believed anything you said
Even if what you told me
Was just another lie

Stoner on a roller coaster
Loop the loop into that summer blue
In a corkscrew ninety-nine miles a minute
Life is a ride anyway you spin it
I wish I'd known you then
The way I still want to

Getting high inside the car
In the parking lot of the amusement park
Two days before they closed down for the season
In those midway lights, red, white and blue
I might have fallen hard for you
If you had not slipped away
For no good reason
