Transistor Radio and Me

by Bob Davoli

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

Daddy was a bulldozer, mama tried to keep her pride
The only thing I did was try to hide
Way up in my tree fort, deep down in my snow cave
Transistor radio and me

Lying on my back, staring up at the sky
Simply trying to figure out why
Daddy?s scream and mama’s cry
Children shaking in the night oh those silent screams and black and blues

Oh kindred spirit where are you, kindred spirit please be true
Kindred spirit I feel so blue; let me sing to you

How could anybody steal the magic lantern
Shining in a child?s eyes
And leave them all alone throughout the cold, dark night
Clinging on to their fright

I hear the cries and whispers from a lost childhood
Oh family veins they run deep
And the blood it weighs heavy
It soaks and stains and can?t be washed away

Oh kindred spirit where are you, kindred spirit please be true
Kindred spirit I feel so blue let me sing to you

Daddy was a bulldozer, mama tried to keep her pride
The only thing I did was try to hide
Way up in my tree fort, deep down in my snow cave
Transistor radio and me, just my transistor radio and me
