BEFORE THE WELL RUNS DRY

I'M PAYING MY DUES
AND WORKING OVERTIME
DOIN' WHAT I CHOOSE
IS THAT SUCH A CRIME

I KNEW MY TIME WOULD COME SOMEDAY
I WAITED ALL OF MY LIFE
AND NOW ITS MY TURN TO PLAY

BEFORE THE WELL RUNS DRY
I'LL REACH FOR THE SKY
BEFORE THE WELL RUNS DRY
I'LL TRY, YES I'LL TRY

WE ALL NEED RESPECT
THAT'S THE WAY IT GOES
I'VE GOT SOMETHING TO PROTECT
AND I THINK IT SHOWS

I'VE HAD MORE THAN MY SHARE OF PAIN
BUT THAT'S ALL IN THE PAST
SO EXCUSE ME WHILE
I PRAY FOR RAIN

BEFORE THE WELL RUNS DRY
I'LL REACH FOR THE SKY
BEFORE THE WELL RUNS DRY
I'LL TRY, YES I'LL TRY

SOMETIMES I WONDER
HOW MUCH I HAVE LEFT TO SAY
THEN I REACH DEEP INSIDE MY SOUL
AND FIND A WAY

I DID THINGS THE HARD WAY
AND EARNED EVERYTHING I'VE GOT
YA KNOW I SLEEP EASY AT NIGHT
AND BABY THAT'S A LOT

EVERYDAY BRINGS ME CLOSER TO YOU
AND I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU'RE HERE
TO SHARE IN EVERYTHING I DO

BEFORE THE WELL RUNS DRY
I'LL REACH FOR THE SKY
BEFORE THE WELL RUNS DRY
I'LL TRY, YES I'LL TRY

Song Comments

IAC Folk Scene Presented by JP Sharpe
Another nice tune written by Mr. Scotti.


It's UNFAIR!
Very pro. Of course, it's from Mr. Scotti! A solid AOR song, with a really good melody that just ain't getting much play. It's unfair!


SILVERWOODS TOP 50
Richard has 20 songs in the Top 50 of the IAC Classic & Progressive Rock Chart, more than any artist or band has in any genre and his songs are played on more than 150 radio stations. Richard Scotti play most of the instruments on the songs and does all the mixing. He works very closely with the vocalists to produce vocals that capture his personal vocal vision for each song.


GONE FISHIN'
Think I'll take this one to the river bank and just contemplate. Love the lyrics!


KIAC Easy Listening
Well written tune. Really like this artist very much.


Groovy Music Monsters
Also a former #1 in Classic Rock! But don't worry Richard; the well will never run dry here at IMP! You want a bigger compliment than the last song? Here goes: this belongs amongst the era of The Moody Blues comeback of the 80's, i.e. "The Present" and "Long Distance Voyager." And the Moodies are MY #1 and my bro's #2! The count is now 100 songs from 37 artists. Tally for my featured artists: 10 each from the MonaLisa Twins and David Nyro, 9 each from DeMonicka and Bryon Tosoff, and 7 from you, Richard Scotti. No worries though as I understand more songs and/or stations are possible. A little pause though as I roll-out this station nationwide to further promote IMP and all the incredibly talented artists here in "Groovy and 60's Style." Thank you Richard and all! Thank you; thank you very much! P.S. My original intent was to make a 50 song station, but I soon found out I had to keep going and grooving! 2nd P.S. This also has a bit of a Neil Diamond vibe to it; and I love him too!
