This is a song about people and heroes and change. Life in America. I hope you enjoy it as much as my dog. He is usually very camera shy but not in this video. Featuring Shakey Pictures' new "economy look" to go with the times!

Let's send Johnny to Detroit!

Enjoy,

Joe the Rock Star

a little more on the song:

Tonight, in the latest adventures in LincVolt, Neil Young and the LV Team went out for another test drive.

On this journey, viewers experienced an extraordinary first -- Neil debuted a song while driving. Singing to a soundtrack on his Mac laptop, Neil performed the new song "Johnny Magic" while playing air guitar.

The song is dedicated to Neil's mechanic Johnathan Goodwin.

"Johnny Magic"

Johnny Magic had a way with metal

Had a way with machines

One day in a garage far away

He met destiny

In the form of a heavy metal Continental

She was born to run on a Proud Highway

Then the whole world started running out of money

People losing their jobs

Right here in Wichita

Wichita

The home of the heavy metal Continental

Where the Motor-Head Messiah was tuning the system in

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

She burst from the garage in a blaze of silence

Disappearing down Douglas at lightning speed

Before the big metal door came crashing down

In Wichita

The home of the heavy metal Continental

Where the Motor-Head Messiah was tuning the system in

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

Wichita

The home of the heavy metal Continental

She was born to run on a Proud Highway

Now she goes long range on domestic green fuel

100 miles per gallon is the Continental Rule

Out on the Kansas two-lane flats near Wichita

Wichita

The home of the heavy metal Continental

She was born to run on a Proud Highway

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

The Motor-Head Messiah went to Washington

To show them what he’d done

The senators and congressmen came down

In Washington

And they rode in the heavy metal Continental

She was born to run on a Proud Highway

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

Johnny Magic, Johnny Magic

Wichita

the Motor-Head Messiah was tuning the system in

(repeat)
