Whenever I get down and feelin' real bad
I remember a pair of Harley's we once had
I reminince of visegrips attached to a busted shifter
And holding the surer hand of a favorite sister
Of laughter, love, shimmering silver moonlight
And the thunder of our engines on a California night
I can still feel the wind rushing to embrace
And I can remember the moon we chose to chase
The life that vibrated just above the road
The smile on my sister's face was all that needed told
A wicked wildness was our fate to tame
How we loved it so.....just our kinda game
How I miss you my sweet sister, my big Bro
Happy remembrances cast a bittersweet glow
I pack away my memories as the blues take fight
On down the road, once upon a California night.
