Every Inch Of The Way (Long Version)

This song is by David Byron and appears on the album On The Rocks (1981).

Met an old friend today and he told me he was real low
'Cause his music don't fit with the change of the time
So I asked him to join me that night for a free blow
Just like we did when we played for those nickels and dimes

He took a drink and told me that he'd think it over
Said that it was a while since he'd tickled the strings
So I told him to come along if he was sober
And get high on the energy rock 'n' roll brings

He said: "I'll tell you no lie
I'll give it one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music and I want it to stay
Just put me to the test
You bet I'll give my best
And I'll push her to the top every inch of the way"

Later on in the evening I was singin' and playin'
When up to the front of the stage came an old friend of mine
Said, he'd had it with moving and figured on staying
And if it was okay by me could he join for awhile

I said: "I'll tell you no lie
I'll give it one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music and I want it to stay
Just put me to the test
You bet I'll give my best
And I'll push her to the top every inch of the way"

I'll tell you no lie
I'll give it just one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music and it's got to stay
Just get me to the test
You know I'm gonna give my best
And I'll push her to the top every inch of the way, oh yeah

I won't tell you no lie
'Cause I'm gonna give it one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music and I want it to stay
Just put me to the test
'Cause you know I'm gonna give my best
And I'll push her to the top every inch of the way
I'll tell you, tell you, tell you no lie
I'll give it one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music and it's got to stay
