Green On Red – Time Ain’t Nothing

Another blogger  turned me on to this band and I’ve enjoyed them.

Green On Red were made up of Dan Stuart (vocals/guitar), Jack Waterson (bass), Van Christian (drums, later of Naked Prey) and Chris Cacavas (organ). They part of a California musical scene called Paisley Underground…it basically marriage of classic rock, punk,  psychedelia, and garage rock…Green on Red brings in a Country element and more in their mixture.

This band is hard to describe because over their 7 studio albums and 3 EPs they changed and ended up more toward a rock/country feel.   This song was released in 1985 on the EP  No Free Lunch.

Time Ain’t Nothing

Walking down dusty roads
Looking for horny toads
With the sun on my back
Thinking about people past
Memories that never last
When you’re young and naive

Chorus

Time ain’t nothing
When you’re young at heart
And your soul still burns
I’ve seen rainy days
Sunshine that never fades
All through the night

Had a motorcycle at 10
Never got into heroin
I guess I want to live
Maybe get a house someday
Find a wife raise a family
That don’t mean you have to die

Chorus
