Dedicated to the memory of Steve Varosi.


Farewell old friend

I wish I'd got to say goodbye

This ain't the end

I'll see you in the by-and-by



I'll hear your drum beats pounding

Like a thousand beating hearts

As your cymbals crash like thunder and that's just for a start

We'll crank the amplifiers and begin another song

We'll rock until the daylight

We'll be young and free and strong


Goodbye my man

I'll see you on the other side

I know I can

Make it if I only try




Be free my friend

I hope things haven't been too rough

I know I tend

To never want to say enough
