Bachman-Turner Overdrive (1974)


Coming to you cross country
Hoping boogie is still allowed
You ask do we play heavy music
Well are thunderheads just another cloud, and we do
Not Fragile, straight at you

Then we vanish to the night
Still in your ears but out of sight
Not Fragile

Don't think we feel hurt or wounded
Or our egos are showing thru
It's our world that's been disrupted
And our strength reflects from you
Well its true
Not Fragile, over you
Try us when you're getting down
Feelin' high or just hangin' round
Not Fragile

The times we travel in our lives
Are hard and fast and give us drive
We may seem distant most of the time
But many thoughts are still on our minds
Not Fragile

Recording Notes from Frank Hannon
"One of the heaviest riffs of the “70’s, this tune starts with Brian’s Hofner bass only to hit you with some of the thickest tones we’ve ever recorded. JK used to listen to this song on an 8 track cassette back in the 70’s during his Oklahoma days. This riff rocks! At first we had trouble getting the middle jam section right."
