LSD



For those who think you cannot tell a simple story.
For those who want their minds to wanter.
For my fellow Chicagoans of a certain era..
and no, I did not and do or encourage drugs,,
but I did music...theatre and film,,,
in a very creative and energy bursting
blue collar city...
the greatest city on earth...Chicago...

-Art Lynch


"There's a road I'd like to tell you about,
lives in my home town.
Lake Shore drive the road is called
and it will take you up or down.

From rats on up to to riches,
fifteen minutes you can fly
pretty blue lights along the way
help you ride on by.
With the blue lights shining with a heavenly grace
help you ride on by

There aint not road just like it
anywhere I found
putting yourself on Lake Short drive
heading into town
just slipping on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound.

It starts up north from Hollywood
Water on the driver's side
Concrete mountains rearing up
throwing shodows just aout five
sometimes you can smell the green
if your mind is feeling fine
there aint no place to be
Then running Lake Shore Drive
and there's no peace of mind
or place to see
than riding on Lake Shore Drive

There aint not road just like it
anywhere I found
running south on Lake Short drive
heading into down
just slipping on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound.


It's Friday night and your looking clean
too early to start the rounds
a ten minutes ride f rom the Gold Coast back
makes you sure your pleasure found
Now its four o'clock in the morning
and all the people have gone away
just you and your mind on Lake Short Drive
Tomorrow is another day
and the sun shines fin in the morning time
Tomorrow is another day

There aint not road just like it
anywhere I found
running sout on Lake Short drive
heading into down
just snaking on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound.


Lake Short Drive is the road to drive
