working blues...original version, w cello)

steve april vocal, cello, guitar (Melody, Lyrics)
thank mark stein harmonies, lead guitar, piano, bass, percussion

there are a few different interpretations for the chorus, let your light shine, don't keep that under a bushel...

American Dreamer


johnny's got a heavy job workin' in a grocery,
lifts 50 lb. boxes to the top row,
george's workin' sponges at a carwash,
hops hot cars down in soho.
if you wanna call this a comin' of age song
alright, alright, alright
danny boy says 'i'm an american dreamer,
give em the day, take back the night...'

loretta works for a florist,
sends bouquets to her friend half price,
joni's an airline stewardess
serves the n.y. to paris-hong kong flight.
if you wanna call this a coming of age song
alright, alright, alright,
joni says 'i'm an american consumer (that's right),
give em the day, take back the night,
give em the day, take back the night...'

Nice new tune from Mr. April. Excellent chorus and great lead guitar tone.

new mix...


New Dimension Radio
For your trust-hauntingly melodic vox and lyric cuts right to the heart of the matter-is there someone out there anyone can truly trust with their heart to be treated always with respect and kindness?


LEGENDARY MUSIC II
Steve really lightens up life here!! I just love the way he sets the stage for the tune with his melodramatic 15-second countdown intro ... and then, kazaam!!! Up and away Steve goes on his "American Dreamer" trip with the coolest eclectic pumping honky-tonkin' piano guitar riffin' melody with lead vocals and harmonies fit for a king!! Great lyrics and arrangement painting a picture of the great American Dream with all the trimmings and excitement of a Coney Island carnival ... and then at closing time we're treated to one fine guitar pickin' piano poundin' outro that spells N-O-T-H-I-N-G M-I-S-S-I-N-G H-E-R-E F-O-L-K-S … NOTHING!!! Welcome to Legendary Music II Steve.
