Low Down Places: Sometimes Johnny's shows are in a concert hall or at lively festivals. This song was inspired by a performance in the stench and darkness of a dingy bar.
"THESE LOW DOWN PLACES"
He played his music in this low down place
It was worse than a dive, forgot the mace
But times are hard so he must go
Wherever gigs are booked but pay is low
It’s not just for money he gives his all
It’s the music he shares from inside his soul
I know from the look upon his face
Making music takes him to another place
But these low down places with dark empty spaces
Cause my spirit to break and run
They unravel my soul and take a toll
Until I’m completely left undone
I wish these places were concert halls
Or country fairs and lively festivals
Music playing under day time skies
People humming to the tunes or dancing by
In that dingy bar with beer breathe stench
Lit bikers and locals their thirst to quench
Some were digging the tunes while playing pool
Others stood and stared just to look cool
The boys in the band were playing tight
Their Rock’in blues filled up the night
In my mind I could see them all
On a well lit stage in a music hall
