    We Were Havin' Fun

    WE  WERE  HAVIN’  FUN  (words & music by Grayson Hugh)

     

    Back when Summer was a feelin’

    and there was sunshine all around

    back in the day that radio would play

    and the music would never let you down

    We were so young and light-hearted

    back when life was on a roll 

    everything was right

    we'd be dancin' all night

    and the music it could never grow old

    Didn't know, didn't know

    didn't know where we were gonna go

    in the sun, on a run

    you and I we had nothin'

    but we were havin' fun

    Come home late from the party

    maybe not come home at all

    playin' those tunes

    lightin' fires in the dunes

    in the distance we could hear the foghorn call

    We were so young and excited

    there was nothin' that could keep us down

    stay up all night

    til the early blue light

    in the mornin' we'd get up and go to town

    Didn't know, didn't know

    didn't know where we were gonna go

    in the sun, on a run

    you and I we had nothin'

    but we were havin' fun

     

    You and me now

    so in love

    out by the sea and the stars above

    our hearts beatin' with all of our night

    waves kept comin' all through the night

     

    Didn’t know, didn’t know

    didn’t know where we were gonna go

    it was new, me and you

    in the dawn, in the field all full of dew

    didn’t know, didn’t know

    didn’t know where we were gonna go

    in the sun, on a run

    you and I had a nothin’

    but we were havin’ fun

    we were havin’ fun

    we were havin’ fun

    we were havin’ fun

(Excerpt from a review on iTunes by Leonard Pitts, Jr., Miami Herald journalist and author, winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary)

"In 2010, an ambitious 14-song set called "An American Record" heralded the return of Grayson Hugh. And now, five years later, comes "Back To The Soul".

"Back To The Soul" is about going through it all, surviving through it all, gathering the skeins of a sometimes-difficult life – the alienation, the loneliness, the brokenness – and …
