This week I listened to nothing but The Doors and tried to write a similar style rock song. Here is a YouTube video of the recorded performance: https://youtu.be/AbJnFbik1VI

Lyrics

A moonlight beaten road
Where Summer air has turned cold
You put on a hell of a show
Lights went out before you got too old
Wise by book and street
Where the mind and body meet
The crowds were all in heat
To see your leather jumping feet

Mr. Mojo Risin'
The poets are alive and well
Mr. Mojo Risin'
They're stuck between Heaven and Hell

Your carnival is in town
They release you into the crowd
They painted you like a clown
But your demons held you down
Tomorrow they're gonna take you
Somewhere far away and new
A spectacle for all to view
Just don't break any of our rules

Mr. Mojo Risin'
The poets are alive and well
Mr. Mojo Risin'
They're stuck between Heaven and Hell

A moonlight beaten road
Where Summer air has turned cold
You put on a hell of a show
Lights went out before you got too old

Mr. Mojo Risin'
The poets are alive and well
Mr. Mojo Risin'
They're stuck between Heaven and Hell

(where will tomorrow take you, down another trail of tears
how long will the money last, with your golden years stuck in the past
I see the world through headlines and billboards, let you drink my wine)
