Deep Purple - You Keep On Moving - 1975

When Ritchie Blackmore left Deep Purple in 1975, there was uncertainty over whether the band would continue, as they did when Ian Gillan and Roger Glover left in 1973. It was David Coverdale who asked Jon Lord to keep the band together, and Coverdale was also a major factor in recruiting Tommy Bolin to take the guitar slot after hearing Bolin's work on the Billy Cobham solo album Spectrum.

Come Taste The Band is the tenth studio album by the English rock band Deep Purple, originally released in October 1975 and "You Keep On Moving" is the ninth song of the album. It was co-produced and engineered by the band and longtime associate Martin Birch. It was the final Deep Purple studio record prior to the band's initial disbandment in 1976, therefore making it the only album to feature Tommy Bolin, who replaced Ritchie Blackmore on guitar, and the final of three albums to feature David Coverdale on lead vocals and Glenn Hughes on bass


You keep on moving Far away, far away You keep on moving Far away, far away Every day, wheels are turning And the cry still returning

Dawn will soon be breaking The day has just begun You put your arms around me Like a circle 'round the sun Dance across the seasons To a place that no one knows Where angels fear to tread
