Grand Funk Railroad Time Machine

Grand Funk Railroad Time Machine

Hard Rock

The song “Time Machine” was released in July, 1969, backed with “High on a Horse.” It was also released as a track on their first studio album On Time in August 1969. “Time Machine” peaked only at #48 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. However, Grand Funk Railroad had charting success with their second album Grand Funk (aka The Red Album) later , which catapulted On Time to RIAA gold record status by 1970. Personnel for On Time were Marker Famer (guitar, piano, harmonica, and vocals), Mel Schacher (formerly of Question Mark and the Mysterians on bass), and Don Brewer (drums and vocals). The band originated from Flint, Michigan. The name was a play on words of a railroad line that went through their home town — that is, Grand Trunk Western Railroad. The lineup, of course, has changed over the years, but the group continues to tour and perform.

Here are the lyrics to “Time Machine” by Grand Funk Railroad:

Well a-hey there baby, do you want to make the scene?

I said a-hey there baby, do you want to make the scene?
Aw well come on over baby, step into my time machine
You best jump into my action, I’m gonna make you feel right
Aw, jump into my action, I’m gonna make you feel right
Don’t worry ’bout tomorrow ’cause I’m gonna love you tonight

Step into the front row, I’m gonna show you how
Step into the front row, I wanna show you how

Don’t worry ’bout no time we can always come back to right now
Aw and I’m gonna’ give it to you

When you wanna come back, we just a turn about
When you wanna come back, we just a turn about
But we ain’t gonna’ come back ’till there ain’t no doubt
Now don’t it get good to you, ah-do you know what I mean?
Said don’t it get good to you, don’t you know what I mean?
Well come on over baby, jump into my time machine
