“Turn the Page”
Bob Seger

On a long and lonesome highway east of Omaha,
You can listen to the engine moanin’ out his one note song.
A                                                                                                   Em
You can think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before.

But your thoughts will soon be wanderin’ the way they always do,
When you’re riding sixteen hours and there’s nothing much to do.
You don’t feel much like ridin’ – you just wish the trip was through.

D                 Em
Say, here I am, on the road again.
D                         Em
Here I am, up on the stage.
D                         A
Here I go, playing the star again.
C   D                Em
There I go,   turn the page…

You walk into a restaurant strung out from the road,
And you feel the eyes upon you as you’re shaking off the cold.
You pretend it doesn’t bother you, but you just want to explode.

Most times you can hear ’em talk, other times you can’t.
All the same old cliches – is that a woman or a man?
And you always seem outnumbered; you don’t dare make a stand…


Out there in the spotlight, you’re a million miles away.
Every ounce of energy you try to give away,
As the sweat pours from your body like the music that you play.

Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers ringin’ in your head,
You smoke the day’s last cigarette, remembering what she said…

By Chris Moore:

Hello, all, and welcome to a little thing we like to call Chris Moore Monday!  I must admit, it’s weird, but pretty cool to have a day assigned to you.  It wasn’t so cool when I came home tired and not feeling all that well from work today and realized that it was, indeed, my day to post a video.

But, I did what any of us here at the Laptop Sessions would do — I took a deep breath, glanced at our list of bands that have yet to be covered, and started practicing.

Today, I bring you Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page.”  Listening to the songs from his greatest hits tonight really brought back some memories for me.  My father had a Bob Seger greatest hits cassette tape and played it often when I was younger.  Songs like “Roll Me Away,” “Night Moves,” and “Mainstreet” really take me back.  I love these songs; they may not be my favorites of all time, but they’re great fun to listen to.

And I learned tonight that another song I’ve always liked — “Turn the Page” — was actually covered by Metallica.  I found their music video online; it’s an interesting one, to say the least.  I really did like the Metallica version, but I of course enjoy Seger’s original version the most.

I hope you like my video — if nothing else, I hope I’ve been able to remind you of one more artist and one more song that you may have forgotten in the crazy rush that is everyday life and modern radio.

That’s it for me.  I’m off to fall asleep to the sounds of Golden Smog, a band I will cover soon for the blog.  However, I need to wait on that for a while and record some more well-known artists (such as Bob Seger).  After all, I’m still making up for last week’s Chris Moore Monday choice of the 70’s band Big Star.

WHO?  I know; that was my reaction, too.  But they’re great!

Don’t forget to hurry back for another amazing cover song music video on Jim Fusco Tuesday at the Laptop Sessions music blog…

See you next session!
