about

"I'm gonna miss it" is my original song about the closing of the beloved Double Door Inn located in Charlotte, NC. The world famous club will close its doors forever in early 2017 after 43 years of hosting some of the finest musicians around the world including Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

lyrics

I'm gonna miss the Double Door, from the crowded bar to the wooden floors, and all you people that we're singing for, I'm gonna miss it.

And it feels like home, when we take the stage, and it feels like home, when we get to play,

I'm gonna miss those guys behind the bar, you know they are the real rock stars, and the guys working the door are the best by far, I'm gonna miss it.

And it feels like home, when we take the stage, and it feels like home, when we get to play,

I'm gonna miss those guys that run the sound, you know they are the best around, and they don't ever turn us down, I'm gonna miss it,
I'm gonna miss you folks that like to dance, and gave this band a fighting chance, it's right here where we made our stance, I'm gonna miss it.

And it feels like home, when we take the stage, and it feels like home, when we get to play,

They say Clapton played here I guess that's true, but so did a lot of my brothers and sisters too, for The Spongetones, Donna Duncan, and the Federal Boys, raise your beer now and make some noise,

And it feels like home, when we take the stage, and it feels like home, when we get to play,

I'm gonna miss the Double Door, and everything it stands for, and like so many friends not here anymore, I'm gonna miss it.
