Paul & Russell

Paul and Russell have composed several songs together. One of these, On and On (recorded 2002), has not had any offical release.
A great little spiritual number, the recorded version has a wonderful Spanish/Mexican/Spaghetti Western feel. As I often say, recording is a mystery, and it is possible to create wonderful soundscapes almost without thinking. Often this is how the best material arises!

Here it is!

Chrous:

On and On, the story never ends
On and On it goes
On and On, the story never ends
On and On it goes

Tear down your barns
Build bigger ones
Check to see how your pension’s grown
You say you don’t believe in God
I say we didn’t get here on our own

 (Chorus)

You say you believe
Just what you want
And you know it’s true – true for you
But if you’re wrong – the Bible right
Then you’ve got so very much to lose!

Middle 8:

But wait a minute, my friend!
You can’t take it with you
Have we missed the point of life?
Wait a minute, my friend
We’ve got to face it soon
Your time is drawing, nigh…

 (Chorus)

Outro:

 On and On and On it goes
On and On it goes………..
