The Charlie Daniels Band – Reflections lyrics

I remember you back in nineteen fifty-six;
You had all the moves and you knew all the tricks;
You left all the ladies in a hell of a fix,
When your voice took wings.

Then you'd shake around and, oh, how you'd sing;
Just an old boy from Memphis with a big diamond ring;
A country girl's prayer and a city girl's dream;
Hail the king!

But it's all right now;
Keep on singin' loud;
It's all right now;
Heaven should be proud.

The fifties left town on a crowded dance floor;
The sixties came in with a bang and a roar.
The world heard a knock; it was Janis at the door;
They let her in.

And when it seemed like this whole world was fallin' apart,
The houselights would fall and the music would start;
She'd be givin' us all a little piece of her heart,
Once again.

It was October in St. Louis town,
When we heard that the "Free Bird" had fell to the ground;
And we all said a prayer before we went down
To play.

And Ronnie, my buddy, above all the rest,
I miss you the most and I loved you the best,
And now that you're gone I thank God I was blessed
Just to know you.
