Dan Modlin 2004 ASCAP
You had to know just where to turn
It was a little county road with a driveway that wound thru a cornfield
Out at 700 West, he gave the bands a chance and they gave it their best---
and it sure showed.......
If you get the chance to take it
Ride the county road, someone's gonna make it
Some played metal, some played steel
They played it from the heart and he caught it on reel---on an 8 track
I'd like to tell you if I could about the ones you never heard
They sure sounded good on that old farm
So If you get the chance to take it....
On summer nights, if the song was right
You'd feel there's nothing you can't do
When the light turned red, the lyrics in your head
You'd feel the magic inside you
Now collectors stand in line, bidding up the price on the records they're
from the old days.......
The bidding's up, the bidding's down, but the only thing that matters
Is the way that it sounds in the long run........
So if you get the chance.........
On summer nights.........
Even though the odds were long, everybody wonders how far they'd have gone
with some airplay
But I'd like to tell you if I could about the ones you never heard....
They sure sounded good on that old farm..........
