Rocky Mountain Way, a rock song by Joe Walsh remains a familiar (and popular) song to many, and though many don't know it's name, Rocky Mountain Way is a catchy tune that should be recognizable to most people.

Though with only two verses and the chorus (which is repeated once), a stunning five minutes of uniquely Joe Walsh rock will rock your world (forgive the cliché, but it will).

Rocky Mountain Way was released in 1973, featured on the Joe Walsh solo album "The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get", and also making an appearance on the 1997 solo album "Little Did He Know..."

Joe Walsh uses his strangely humourous wit to put together a great song that you won't forget. It begins with a 30-second guitar intro, then enters into the regular song, followed by two minutes of truly unique guitar work that rivals many of the musicians of today. Plus, it was written by Joe Walsh himself, something many musicians of today can't claim to have done.

Instrumental (as only Joe can do) ....

Also, I have heard from reliable sources that there was an 11-minute-plus version of Rocky Mountain Way, which I believe was done with the Eagles, but I'm not positive about that part... I assure you, you will like it if you listen to it.
