Wings for Wheels 10/4: Joy Theater (Live)

by Greensky Bluegrass

Greensky Bluegrass is a five-piece American bluegrass/Country band founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan in Mid-2000. The band has evolved over the years, growing from 3 to 5 members, adding electric effects and touring with a full light show. "The whole notion of “traditional bluegrass” strangely remains a sticking point for plenty of the genre's faithful. Partly because of their name, every article written about the band addresses the fact that what Greensky does is “not quite” bluegrass. These depths have been plumbed. In fact, in their own promotional material, GSBG describes their sound as “their own version of bluegrass music, mixing the acoustic stomp of a stringband with the rule-breaking spirit of rock & roll.”

Trade your wings for wheels
Find your way through the world
Let your dreams come true
Let everything happen to you

I've been gone too long
Now everything feels the same
I'll give you my wheels
If you give me your wings

Turn yourself to the East
Feel the wind burning your feet
Let your engines roll
And turn those wheels on the road

Trade your wings for wheels
Roll through the world
Let your engines roll
On the broken bridge
Turn your wings
Down the road
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
