Rock Ballad of The Week: Eric Johnson “Bristol Shore”

16 Comments

There’s a place, I dream of, far away
There’s a girl living there by the bay
She works at sea, for the land propriety
It’s here duty, when they call, she’s got to go

Oh, now I’m waiting for you
Soon again we’ll meet
Yes, I’ve been hoping for you
I want to retreat to Bristol Shore

The Neptune World, she loves most, with ocean breeze
She protects the Trident Coast and seven seas
‘Till she returns, I must find somewhere to go
She’s been delayed at the Gulf of Mexico

Oh, I’ve been waiting for you
Soon you will arrive
Oh, yes I’ll be hoping for you
Underneath the sky at Bristol Shore
(Oh, at Bristol Shore)

There’s a light shining near, off the bay
Through the siren winds I hear, that girl say
Soon we will meet, there will be another time
That we connect, let it be another time

Oh, I’ll be waiting for you
Keep an open door
Yes, ’cause I’m hoping for you
There beside the sea at Bristol Shore

Soon we will meet, let it be another time
That we connect, let it be another time

Oh, I’ll be there waiting for you
Yes, I’ll be hoping for you
Oh, I’ll be waiting for you
Lord knows, I’m hoping for you

I’ll be there waiting for you
And I’ll be there hoping for you
Oh, I’ll be waiting for you
(Soon we will meet)
I’m only hoping for you
Down at Bristol Shore….
