Dead Moon

Dead Moon was a United States punk rock band from 1987 to 2006, formed in Portland, Oregon. Fronted by singer/guitarist Fred Cole, the band also included bassist Toody Cole, Fred's wife, and drummer Andrew Loomis. Veterans of Portland's independent rock scene, Dead Moon combined dark and lovelorn themes with punk and country music influences into a stripped-down sound. Fred Cole engineered most of the band's recordings and mastered them on a mono lathe that was used for The Kingsmen's version of "Louie Louie".

(young/young/scott - arr. dead moon)

Riding down the highway
Goin' to a show
Stoppin' on the by-ways
Playing rock & roll
Gettin' robbed, gettin' stoned
Gettin' beaten, broken bones
Gettin' had, gettin' took
I'll tell you folks, it's harder than it looks

[chorus]
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock & roll
If you think it's easy playing one night stands
Try playing in a rock & roll band
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock & roll

Hotel, motel makes you wanna cry
Ladies do the hard sell, know the reason why
Gettin' old, gettin' gray
Gettin' ripped off, underpaid
Gettin' sold, secondhand
That's how it goes playing in a band

[chorus]
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock & roll
If you wanna be a star of stage and screen
Look out, it's tough and mean
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock & roll
[chorus]
