lyrics

FIGHT THAT MONKEY 5:31

By Erick Hovey




I’m gonna fight that monkey, when I get it off my back (2 times)
But when it’s time for me to go, I won’t take one minute back


I’m goin stone cold crazy, right out of my head (2 times)
I lost my mind, just like my doctor said


Gonna tend to my soul, right after this go round (2 times)
I’ll come back a few more times, then I’ll be heaven bound


A dozen steps to freedom, or thirteen to the tree
Twelve easy steps to freedom and that monkey rides for free
I’m gonna roll right over, let that monkey carry me


I’m gonna fight that monkey, when I get it off my back (2 times)
But when it’s time for me to go, I won’t take one minute back

about

Erick Hovey Fort Dodge, Iowa

Erick Hovey's music is peppered with seasonings of blues, roots rock, jazz, funk, old power trio rock, reggae, and newer folk fusion styles. His lyrical content has not only good humored nods towards classic blues and rock clichés’, but spans the afterlife, and existentialism as well. Sometimes it’s spooky, sometimes it’s raw, spiritual, and sensual. Think Mark Knopfler, JJ Cale, and Peter Green. ... more
