about

This is a musical reflection of a show I did in Columbia, SC in 1979 on the "Neon Dreams" tour...For one day I was a "star"

lyrics

TOUR DE FORCE
By Mychael John Thomas

Like an electric wave…The sun came up
Beginnings of a perfect day
I met the Mayor…Got the key to the city
And everybody knew my name
Jim Squire had played my record for two full weeks
I was toast of the town…On a neon eve
We hit the first chord everybody started singing
The words right along with me

CHORUS
A tour de force in the spotlights glowing
All that I was hoping for
Livin’ the dream with my eyes wide open
I couldn’t have asked for more…Tour de force

I took a leap of faith and jumped in the crowd
Jammin’ for some happy faces
Lost in the moment…So I wasn’t thinking
How would I get back on stage?
That’s when I saw the trail boss waving his arms
Larry said “come on” with a helping hand
I dove thru the air as I felt him reaching
He flew me back into the band

CHORUS

BRIDGE
A night of nights…The pinnacle
The memory of a lifetime
On the same wave length…Hearts of us all
Making music as if one mind

SOLO

Well we played every single note that we knew
At the end they were still screamin’ one more song
I said good night and we love you all
But they’re tellin’ me I’ve played too long

CHORUS
A tour de force in the spotlights glowing
All that I was hoping for
Livin’ the dream with my eyes wide open
I couldn’t have asked for more

CHORUS
A tour de force…Famous for a moment
And feeling it to the core
Up to the skies on a cloud we were lovin’
And jammin’ forevermore…Tour de force
