Coverdale might be responsible for writing one of the greatest anthemic songs of ’82

After leaving english rock band, Deep PurpleDavid Coverdale formed the lucrative hard rock band, Whitesnake.

While Whitesnake was formed after being a touring band for Coverdale’s solo album, it soon developed into a full-time band. Boy, did they write and perform some iconic 80’s rock ballads!

Coverdale wrote this song in Portugal. Typically thought of as an inspiring song about facing your challenges head-on, it’s really a song about heartbreak and the loneliness that comes with it. The song documents the breakdown of Coverdale’s first marriage to Julia, who he tied the knot with in 1974.

The live performance of this song is unbelievable. The notes this man is able to hit after all these years, and the fans response to this anthemic song will surely send chills up your spine!

+Here I Go Again lyrics below+

I don’t know where I’m goin’
But I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday
An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time
Here I go again, here I go again
Tho’ I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I’m looking for
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on
‘Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time

Just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love’s sweet charity
An’ I’m gonna hold on for the rest of my days
‘Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time
But here I go again, here I go again,
Here I go again, here I go

‘Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams
Here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind, I ain’t wasting no more time
Here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
‘Cause I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve
