Let That Tape Keep Rolling
Words and Music by: Larry Norman C'mon, whoooooo! Well, I woke up in the morning, I said a morning prayer I washed my face with soap, I ran my fingers through my hair I went down to the studio on Hollywood and Vine The clock said seven thirty, I made it just in time I greeted a musician, I grabbed the nearest chair You know, I started playing my guitar, told the engineer. C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, c'mon! The first song that we cut was called "Lonely by myself" I'll do the vocal later, you can just leave it on the shelf The second song we cut was called "Unlucky Blues" The session's getting better now, we're turning on the juice You know, the first song took us seven takes, last one took us ten If Jesus came right now, I wonder who'd get in? C'mon, let that love keep flowing C'mon, let your faith keep growing C'mon, let your light keep shinning C'mon, be careful what you signing C'mon, let that love keep flowing C'mon, c'mon, c'mon! Do you hear me singing on your record machine? You know, the piano's banging The guitar is twanging The water cooler is clanging You know, the light bulb's hanging Yes, the music's playing, the production's clean Cross fade all the tracks, don't leave no spaces in between. C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, let your light keep glowing C'mon, c'mon, let your love keep flowing C'mon, c'mon, keep at it, c'mon, c'mon C'mon, c'mon, let your light keep showing C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon! I started out ten years ago, my guitar in my hand I took the message in my heart, I laid it on the land I went down to Capitol Record to record "Upon This Rock" I wanted to say something, I let my music talk I know who I'm going, I know who I must be I don't care how long it takes me, there's lots of things to see. C'mon, c'mon, let your love keep growing C'mon, c'mon, let your light keep showing C'mon, c'mon, let your love keep shining C'mon, c'mon, be careful what you signing C'mon, c'mon, let your love keep flowing C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon! You know, He come walking down my street He come up to my room He knock on my door He come into my heart He make me feel so good, so good So tough, so tough, so tough I said, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon C'mon, let the love keep growing C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon!
