My friend Teresa Austin has just Passed away, she was a lyricist. I have just now put one of her lyrics to music in her memory. We will miss you Teresa, and we love you. I hope to do more of her lyrics soon. She was the gal of my co-writer J.D. Stenz
I’m ON THE HIGH ROAD NOW—Words by Teresa Austin Music by Steve Mornini
I Can’t change where I’ve been, or who I’ve met along the road,
But I can tell you where I’m heading, with a lighter Load.
When I say Arreverdeci! Cheerio!, I mean Adios Amigos, I’m on the High Road Now.
I won’t take up your time, I know you’ve got things to tend to
Remember it isn’t who you know
He see’s what you Do
I wish I could stay a little longer, but gotta catch that Cloud
So long! Sayonara, my friend, I’m on the High road now.
I traded a penny for my thoughts, a picture for a thousand words
I figured I’d be doomed if I tried to live Forever.
I buried a Fifty in the sand, Two Hundred went to charities,
I would’nt settle down before I Surrendered
Friend, I’m on the High Road Now.
What you think and do is where you’re going to go
Up or Down, You’re In Control.
