Rocktober Music Fest – 2019 – Song Lyric Sunday and other October Oddities

In this week’s #SLS installment, Jim gives us Drifter/Loner/Transient/Vagabond.  I immediately thought of Rod Stewart and his Vagabond Heart album. 

We’ve seen Rod Stewart a couple of times and he really puts on a great show.  He even kicks signed soccer balls out into the crowd and the hubby almost caught one!  There were a couple of people sitting next to us on the way home who managed to grab one and they let Bill hold them so I could take a picture.

Such energy he has, even at his age.  

He tells lots of stories during the show too.  

 
His autobiography is very interesting.  He spent a lot of time fixing his hair – LOL.  Just recently he announced that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in February 2016.  As of right now he is okay after treatment and is encouraging men to get checked. 

Rhythm of My Heart
Across the street the river runs
Down in the gutter life is slipping away
Let me still exist in another place
Running down under cover
Of a helicopter blade
The flames are getting higher
In effigy
Burning down the bridges of my memory
Love may still alive
Somewhere someday
Where they’re downing only deer
A hundred steel towns away
Oh, rhythm of my heart
Is beating like a drum
With the words I love you
Rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam
For I know my place is home
Where the ocean meets the sky
I’ll be sailing
Photographs and kerosene
Light up my darkness
Light it up
Light it up
I can still feel the touch
Of your thin blue jeans
Running down the alley
I’ve got my eyes all over you, baby
Oh, baby
Oh, the rhythm of my heart
Is beating like a drum
With the words I love you
Rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam
For I know my place is home
Where the ocean meets the sky
I’ll be sailing
Oh, yeah
Oh, I’ve got lightning in my veins
Shifting like the handle
Of a slot machine
Love may still exist
In another place
I’m just yanking back the handle
No expression on my face
Oh, the rhythm of my heart
Is beating like a drum
With the words I love you
Rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam
For I know my place is home
Where the ocean meets the sky
I’ll be sailing
Oh, the rhythm of my heart
Is beating like a drum
With the words I love you
Rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam
For I know my place is home
Where the ocean meets the sky
I’ll be sailing
The rhythm of my heart
Is beating like a drum
With the words I love you rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam
For I know my place is home
Where the ocean meets the sky
I’ll be sailing

The lyrics talk about where the ocean meets the sky and that is one of my favorite places to be too!

Are you a vagabond at heart?  I like to let my mind wander but definitely need a home to come back to.  Happy Sunday all.

  7. Sailing is a lot like being a Drifter/Loner/Transient/Vagabond. Great song Janet, it was good to hear this again.
