J.C. Brae – How High Did You Go

“How High Did You Go”, is the third track on the J.C Brae CD and was written by Mark Nesler/Tony Martin.

Lyrics:

Billy and his bicycle screamed down the hill

His school buddies yelled out you’re gonna get killed

Right as his wheels hit the ramp made of plywood and blocks

For a moment in time he soared above them

Evil Knievel had nothing on him

He was brave and foolish, young and carefree, he was launched

Flying over a ditch that was too wide to be jumped across

 

CHORUS

When he finally came down

Crashed into the ground

It wasn’t the stars that he saw

Or how far that he fell that they wanted to know

They all gathered ’round and said, “tell us”

How high did you go

 

The whole town said Billy would never get far

When he climbed on a greyhound with his old guitar

But he hopped off in Nashville, caught a song, headed straight to the top

He thought as he sang on the Grand Old Opry

Hank Sr and Jr.’s got nothing on me

He was fresh, had the look, had a hit, had a hat, he was hot

Flying up the new country charts until it all went  pop

 

CHORUS

When he finally came down

Crashed into the ground

It wasn’t the stars that he saw

Or how far that he fell that they wanted to know

They all gathered ’round and said, “tell us”

How high did you go

 

So to all you big dreamers and dishearted schemers

Who find yourselves back in the hole

Skip all the low points and tell us

How High Did You Go!
