Do not recall the band, but the jukebox in my head is playing a song with the followup line "...eyes had a mist from the smoke of a distant fire."

'tis fun - Pip

One of the genres I learned to like as a child was old time Western music, aka Cowboy  music.

We sang the old standards in school like "Chisholm Trail," "Back in the Saddle," "Streets of Laredo" and "Cool Water."

One artist my dad especially liked was Tex Ritter.

I probably heard "Blood on the Saddle" (from which the last lyrics I quoted came) when I was an infant.

So, how about?

He was an amazing songwriter as was his mother too.  Elvis, 3 Dog Night, Ringo, Steppenwolf and the list goes on were just a few of the ones who benefited from his music talent.  I figured you would know this one!!!

I know the song writer, lots of bands preformed his work.

I did have to "Google" this, however; had to, neat lyric I did not recall.

thanks - Pip

1. Clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst...
"Astronomy" by Blue Oyster Cult off of the album "Secret Treaties" from 1974, which song Metallica did cover on "Garage, Inc" in 1998 ,-)

2. It's only been an hour, since he locked her in the tower...
"16th Century Greensleeves" by Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow on their self-titled album of 1975, with Ronnie James Dio on power-vocals

3. Tell your children not to walk my way...
"Mother" by Danzig off the self-titled album 0f 1988, some of the "darker" music I like.

------------

Music has been much a part of my life, mostly as a listener; from 50's Rock and Roll to Grindcore Metal, Classical from Baroque to modern era, Country and Western (particularly "Cowboy" singers), Bluegrass, swing, jazz, blues, folk...not so much disco, rap or modern corporate country.
