about

A song about going nowhere fast and waking up one day to discover that you've really been running in place your whole life. That you never "found" your true destiny or legacy. This whole album was really an examination of my life as seen through the eyes of my father and my brother. I'd lost my father the year before my brother. It was a very brutal one-two punch to the heart. And in some ways the first five songs are about my brother David and the second side is about my father Joseph. Drummer Mark Brotter and bassist Pete Hamilton are part of my performing quintet in New York and accompanied me on this track.

lyrics

ALL REVVED UP

CAUGHT IN A HURRICANE / DRIVIN’ IN THE POURIN’ RAIN
BURNIN’ UP THE INTERSTATE / FOR 40 DAYS

PLAYIN’ DODGE SMOKEY BEAR / SPEEDING’ UP WITHOUT A CARE
PASSIN’ EVERY KINDA RIG / FROM EVERY STATE

CHORUS:
ALL REVVED UP / RIPPIN’ UP THE ROAD
GOTTA LET OFF SOME STEAM
CUZ I’M READY TO BLOW

POP ANOTHER CAFFEINE PILL / WATCH OUT FOR THAT OIL SPILL
DOUBLE CLUTCH TO SLOW HER DOWN / I’M BARRELING’ THRU

BREAKER, BREAKER 1-4-9 / GOT GET AHEAD OF TIME
WHAT’S MY TWENTY ANYHOW / AND WHO ARE YOU?

CHORUS:
(I’M) ALL REVVED UP / BURNIN’ UP THE ROAD
GOTTA LET OFF SOME STEAM / CUZ I’M READY TO BLOW

Solo

DANCIN’ WITH A PRETTY GAL / FIGHTING’ WITH HER HUSBAND'S PALS
PASSIN’ OUT DRUNK AGAIN / IT NEVER ENDS

TOSSIN’ AND A TURNIN' / SWEATIN’ AND A BURNIN’
WAKIN’ UP LATE AGAIN / I GOT NO FRIENDS

CHORUS:
I’M ALL REVVED UP / RIPPIN’ UP THE ROAD
GOTTA LET OFF SOME STEAM / CUZ I’M READY TO BLOW
ALL REVVED UP…
ALL REVVED UP…
ALL REVVED UP I'M READY TO BLOW
ALL REVVED UP…
ALL REVVED UP…
ALL REVVED UP I'M READY TO GO
