Chill Ride-not quite bro country

I was channeling bro country without the pickup trucks, friday night lights and fireball shots. Maybe this isn't really a bro country song. This is more of a this is how I feel, I'll tell you why I feel this way, this is why I feel this way type song about being free. I leave the conveyance, beverage, and day of the week of choice to the listener.  imagine a mid tempo, Lydian mode, happy heroic feels, maj. 6th harmonies in the chorus somewhere spotlighting "chill ride".

Let me know if you want to hear it!
 

Chill Ride (c)2014 Timothy Pratt

I like to work hard 

play the same way

addicting rush of mountain air

 

knobby rubber wheels

forever down hill trail

feels like i can do anything out there

 

touring spinning motion

clicking of gears 

addicting wind speed blur

 

gripping lightly 

but holding tightly 

I become the wind past the firs

 

my mind clears

theres only now

its just you and me and the sunshine

 

I’ve got a chill ride

the sun is so high

I feel free 

you only get one life

get one time

to make it right

make it a chill ride

got my chill ride

 

have you ever felt

like a cork on the ocean

no seatbelts on the boat of commotion

 

have you ever felt 

like you just wanna drown

just going crazy jumping up and down

 

spikey carnival lights

blurry eyes past 3 am 

with tales to spin you round

 

only wanna be where

 

I can clear the mind

cuz theres only now

its just you and me and the sunshine

 

I’ve got a chill ride

the sun is so high

i feel free 

you only get one life

get one time

to make it right

make it a chill ride

got my chill ride
I’ve got a chill ride
