Music Game

There is a game going around the blogosphere where you post the first 4 lines to the first then everyone tries to guess then song and artist. Here is my version. There are a couple of give aways and a few that are so obscure it realy isn't fair.

1.In a westerly direction this car is my train
I'm driving and I'm wonderin what it is I'm runnin from again
I feel like an eighty year old man but I'm holdin on to twenty nine
And up ahead on that horizon is the California line.

2.Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl,
but she doesn't have a lot to say
Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
but she changes from day to day

3.Don't you feel it growing, day by day
People getting ready for the news
Some are happy, some are sad
Oh, we got to let the music play

4.I've got some pictures
Just some old black and whites
Everything was so simple
Maybe I romanticize

Had to leave these 2 out. Couldn't find the lyrics:

Eric Schwartz Coronation of President Schwartz
Brindle’s Under the Rainbow

5.In my room
On a table by the light
There is a photograph
An old black and white

6.Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground

7.My old man never left this town
Except when he went to war
Took a two week vacatioin
Every summer to the shore

8.If I had a magical lamp, with a genie at my command
I'd use my 3 wishes right now, to make you mine
And if I had a harp of gold, like one from the legends old
My songs of love would take, your breath away

9.Mister, can you spare some change for me
I’m a stranger on my own
I know there’s la lot of people out on the street
But now it’s you and me alone

10.My father said some things you learn
By only dong when it come your turn
Everything comes around
So be ready if you can

Yep, you got most of them but I was listening to Eric Clapton instead of Freddie King. #8 is not the song you are thinking about. It is by a group called Still on the Hill, pretty obscure stuff.
#4 Grey Eagle - David LaMotte
#5 is In My Room, Steve Fisher
#7 is by Edge City, TX
#9.Tom Paine- On My Way

All great songs but most of them are too obscure for anybody to guess. That's why I don't usually play this game.
