John Illsley – Old Amsterdam Lyrics

High on the world, maybe just fate
The Paradiso 1978
Rock and roll with a touch of the blues
It was time to be a line in the news

Nobody knew nobody could know
Red lights offering a different show
Dawned on me how lucky I am
Hanging out in Old Amsterdam

Old Amsterdam
Old Amsterdam

Checking out the queens of the street
Angels we would all like to meet
Coffee houses and a roll of the hand

Getting high was maybe the plan

Power and the glory with the passage of time
It was a beauty of rhythm and rhyme
Watery ways a feast for the eyes
Golden moments no one could deny

Old Amsterdam
Old Amsterdam

Here was the future with a magical face
Something you could never replace
Now I know how lucky I am
Hanging out in old Amsterdam

Old Amsterdam
Old Amsterdam
