Liner Notes: 

Another 70s kind of easy rock/pop song. Demo took most of last night. Shouldn't do that. I'm an old guy, I need my sleep. Smile But as the Challenge is winding down it propably won't happen again...this Challenge.

Thank you @Kristi for the lyrics and doing rewrites. Wonderful job you did.

Lyrics: 

Where I’m Goin’ by Kristi

The morning comes
For a new day now
As the fire ball
Burns through the clouds

I slowly rise
Feel the energy
Gonna get outside
So much to see

And I will do a little rockin’
Move while I'm rollin’
Sing more than I am talkin’
To get to where I’m goin'

Yeah, let’s do a little rockin’
Move while we're rollin’
Sing more than we are talkin’
To get to where we’re goin’
Yeah, lets do a little rockin', rockin'!

Some wildflowers
Nestled by the road
Try to make a mark
In this three ringed show

It feels so good
Out in the breeze
Gonna find the fun
In webs we weave

And I will do a little rockin’
Move while I'm rollin’
Sing more than I am talkin’
To get to where I’m goin'

Yeah, let’s do a little rockin’
Move while we're rollin’
Sing more than we are talkin’
To get to where we’re goin’

Gonna look up when I’m down
To find higher ground
On any given day
In many different ways

And I will do a little rockin’
Move while I'm rollin’
Sing more than I am talkin’
To get to where I’m goin'

Yeah, let’s do a little rockin’
Move while we're rollin’
Sing more than we are talkin’
To get to where we’re goin’
Yeah, lets do a little rockin', rockin'!

Oh I love it! Made all my cold symptoms go away while listening! Maybe I'll listen to this all day! Thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful collab!

Yeah! Nice work klaus/Kristi! Supa-catchy. My foot was tapping the whole way through. Loved the little break after the bridge to set up the final chorus and the little taste of keys that made it special.

Very nice! Your vocals sound great and inspired, and I'm sure Kristi's lyrics made you do it. Bass is very tasty too. Good stuff!

Catchy, smooth feel good song. I like the imagery lots. And I'm loving the bass too. It drives this along so well. That with the acoustic guitar is all you need to make me happy, but that organ is icing on the cake. Tasty touch.

Love the bass on this! The whole song really captures the 70s carefree-driving-down-the-highway feel. I like the laid-back vocals (really smooth!) and the cowbell (?) ... reminds me a bit of NRBQ. Drum break and organ adds to the fun. Lyrics really evoke a nice "free" feel ... I particularly like the "wildflowers nestled by the road" line. Great collab!

Oh such a wonderful Kristi/Klaus collaboration! A wonderful late 60s early 70s feel! Love the bass line in this one and splendid vocals! Great feel!

This is grrreat! I'm dancing in my chair. Seeing people dancing and strobe lights flashing... Yeah! Let's do a little rocking! Wheeee! Yahoo

I can't record at night (I would like to), my neighbours would kick my ass. Indeed cool bass and your vocal really sound like you went back to the 70s. Kristi's lyrics are well suited for the song, the chorus begs for a little rockin' treatment :-).
