Looking for the lyrics of Roll back the Clouds, written and performed by Christy Hennessy. It appears difficult to find many of his lyrics on the web. Any chance?

God this one is out of the archives for me! good song though. The album i have on is C.H. The Rehersal. Believe he released it again afterwards& jazzed up a bit

I've been sitting here so long
For you to hear my song
But all you want to know,
Have i been on the radio,
And who's the biggest star I've seen,
And what's my favourite scene,
And if i got the job
Would i sing on mars

Yes sir i would sing on mars
I'd play upon a star
I'd sing songs of the sun
And when my job is done
I would say I love you so,
I'd like to play one more
Just for all young lovers
For the road.

Chourus
And tell me, sir
Yeah just how far
I need to go,
To be a star

I have known my highs and lows
I've worked in every show
I've played in every town
And brought some houses down
Yet critics never notice me
I'm not a star you see
And yet i give my heart
To every part

I would stand for hours & hours
I'd wait through sun and showers
With my dancing shoes
And my dreams and views
I'd walk upon an empty stage
With one line on my face
To be told "don't phone us
We'll phone you"

Chourus

Every day the same old scenes
The same old happenings
a hundred miles of shore
And yet no place to go
And when your luck has all run out
You're asked to take a bow
You've just stolen the show
But now you're on your own

Yes sir I,
Would sing on mars
My Dream scene,
If need a star,
To Be a star,
I am that star
