James Gang – Walk Away

I’ve always liked the edge of the James Gang. I like the rawness they had and wish they would have stayed together longer. This song and Midnight Man

The James Gang released the album Thirds in 1971  which yielded this song their highest-charting single, “Walk Away.” It peaked at #51 in the Billboard 100. The band released live album James Gang Live In Concert in 1971. Walsh left the group in 1971 to form his own group Barnstorm. He then later joined The Eagles and made Hotel California.

The James Gang had many changes through the years after Walsh left including bringing in Tommy Bolin but the lineup they are remembered for the most is Joe Walsh, Jim Fox, and Dale Peters.

The classic James Gang lineup — Walsh (Guitarist), Peters (Bass Player), and Fox (Drums) got together again for the first time to perform for then-president Bill Clinton’s election rally in late 1996. The group also made appearances on The Drew Carey show during the late 1990s and performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio in February 2001.

The classic James Gang trio also toured across the country in the summer of 2006, where they were supported by backing vocalists and musicians.

Walk Away

Taking my time
Choosin’ my line
Tryin’ to decide what to do
Looks like my stop
Don’t wanna get off
Got myself hung up on youSeems to me
You don’t want to talk about it
Seems to me
You just turn your pretty head and walk awayPlaces I’ve known
Things that I’m growin’
Don’t taste the same without you
I got myself in
The worst mess I’ve been
And I find myself startin’ ta doubt you

Seems to me
Talk all night, here comes the mornin’
Seems to me
You just forget what we said
And greet the day

Seems to me
You don’t wanna talk about it
Seems to me
You just turn your pretty head and walk away

I’ve got ta cool myself down
Stompin’ around
Thinkin’ some words I can’t name ya
Meet ya half way
Got nothin’ to say
Still I don’t s’pose I can blame ya

Seems to me
You don’t want to talk about it
Seems to me
You just turn your pretty head and walk away

Walk away
