Glen Reid 'Life On the Road' songs (36) RE: 'Life On the Road' songs 11 Nov 03


I wrote a song years ago about "being on the road" It was from my own prospective, but written about my best friend, Blind Freddie McKenna.

Blind from birth, Fred shared stories with me, of his early days in Canadian country music, eaking out a living as a single, "one man band" hitchhiking from town to town, singing his songs and paying his dues.
Except in Canada, he was never that famous and sadly he died pennyless,but he was a true musical pioneer and wealthy beyond compare, in his short but colourful life.

My old pal,Rick Fielding recorded it "That old Man's Song" on his Lifeline CD a few years ago.
Needless to say,one of the best versions ever.

Cheers,Glen
