Arc Of A Diver (111/365)

Arc Of A Diver - Steve Winwood: Puts me right back into April, 1981. Ronald Regan had just been shot. Always the experimental type, I worked a variety of odd and unusual jobs in college. One was as a roadie for a local band and before every show they played this LP.

Watch While You See A Chance (from Arc Of A Diver):


Stand up in a clear blue morning until you see what can be
Alone in a cold day dawning, are you still free? can you be?
When some cold tomorrow finds you, when some sad old dream reminds you
How the endless road unwinds you

While you see a chance take it, find romance fake it
Because its all on you

Don't you know by now no one gives you anything
Don't you wonder how you keep on moving one more day your way

Always funny when I see a song title and can't come up with any memory. Then I play it and think, oh yeah, I heard that all the time.

A roadie, eh?

This puts me right back on to the first floor of Coffey Hall with Aily and Barb and Mary Kay and Ellen et al. Those were the days, my friend!
