Turnpike Warrior

This is one of my tunes, written in the summer of 2000. It celebrates the 200-mile round-trip journeys I would take each month to play a dance in Lewiston, Maine.

You are a true warrior. That kind of journey is nearly a day’s work in itself. Good tune, solid beat & should be great for dancing. Well done & keep up the good work.

Guitarist David Surette told me once that dance musicians play music for free but get payed to drive.
