Music video for "Jesus I'm hitching a ride" by singer/songwriter Mark Handley, originally filmed 1989 by Richard Dixon, edited 2011 by Gordon McLean. www.markhandley.co.uk
Way on down the road of life there is hardship and strife
Who will lend a hand unto their fellow man
Though we may be strangers there will be no danger
Have nothing to fear the Lord is near
JESUS I'M HITCHING A RIDE
JESUS I'M STANDING BY THE ROAD SIDE
TOO YOU LORD I PRAY ARE YOU GOING MY WAY
JESUS I'M HITCHING A RIDE
I'm trying to catch the driver's eye but as the cars are rolling by
They turn their heads and look the other way instead
Passenger seats are empty but they've no room for me
Lord they're stepping upon the gas and racing past
Shinning automobiles with polished chrome wheels
Make me sigh as they go rolling bye
And I'm down on my luck not even a pickup truck
Will be so kind as to take me down the line
Until the judgement day comes I'll be holding out my thumb
You'll decide I should make my final ride
Lord wherever I may roam won't you please take me home
And don't hit the breaks 'til we reach them pearly gates

Hi there I'm Joe. I’m the drummer with rock/blues band Gunnrunner.
I am also a keen amateur songwriter and completely self-taught in all areas of my musical ability. I have a small home recording studio and spend many hours trying to come up with original ideas. I do not however make any claims of being a guitarist, keyboard player, vocalist or performer - although I do produce, record, sing and play a majority of the instruments on the recordings. Other than that, I am an idea's person; nothing more, nothing less.
The songs I write are in stark contrast to the material I play with Gunnrunner and are treated as a totally separate entity. The idea being that my music can be heard by someone in the music business, in the hope that they may hear something that appeals to either themselves, or even to an up and coming artist looking for songs.
I am prepared to work with anyone who may be interested. My aim is to use the internet as a promotional tool in order to get my songwriting noticed. So if you are an up and coming artist or someone who works within the industry and you like what you hear then do not hesitate to contact me or at least spread the word to others.
The tracks featured on my ROCK-TIL-YOU-DROP page's music player, here, are demos of my own original material, so any constructive criticism is always welcome! (but....keep it clean, eh!)
Enjoy. And please feel free to comment!!
