Walk Away

walkawayguy1.jpg

Takin' my time
Choosin' my lines
Tryin' to decide what to do
Looks like my stop
Don't wanna get off
Got myself hung up on you

Seems to me
You don't wanna talk about it
Seems to me
You just turn your pretty head and walk away

Places I've known
Things that I'm growin'
Don't taste the same without you
I got myself in
The worst mess I've been
And I find myself starvin' without you

Seems to me
Talk all night, until the mornin'
Seems to me
You just forget what we said
And greet the day

I've got to cool myself down
Stompin' around
Thinkin' some words I can't name ya
Meet you halfway
Got nothin' to say
Still I don't suppose I can blame ya

Seems to me
You don't wanna talk about it
Seems to me
You just turn your pretty head and walk away
Yeah, walk away
Walk away
Walk away

-- Mr. Joe Walsh

"Walk Away" is an old favorite. Very funny to see what you've done with it (I'm imagining the guy vanishing around the corner as that great distorted instrumental plays at the end of the song). By coincidence, I was looking at some YouTube videos of original James Gang performances and more recent ones by Joe Walsh; judging from the Eagles' induction performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a few years ago, this guy actually might be Joe Walsh.

LOL, but true. I was looking at some videos of Joe (and others) through the years, too, and it occurred to me it's a good thing all these old rockers made their hits during the times they did. Because if they had to get past the looks over substance standard in today's music world, we'd have never heard of them.
