Inspector Mills By America With Lyrics Inspector Mills I'd like to tell you 'bout a girl I saw At a party just the other night in Beverly Hills Inspector Mills I hope you find her and it don't take long Watch my feelings for her growing strong in a war of wills Inspector Mills I can't attempt to point you in her direction I didn't see her walking out of the door If I had taken my time she'd be standing here still Inspector Mills I recall once in my life I felt this way before But I let her go and closed the door, walk away Inspector Mills I can't attempt to show the hurt in me And just how much I need the company; search the valleys and the hills You gotta find her Mr. Mills I can't attempt to point you in her direction I was blinded by the look in her eyes If I had taken my time she'd be sitting here still Inspector Mills Oo, someday soon I might be in love with her Inspector Mills I guess you've taken quite a look around Guess I've heard the word from underground, she's gone for good Inspector Mills is it any crime for a fool like me Try to use your time 'cause I wanna see; you just send me the bill Inspector Mills, Inspector Mills I can't attempt to point you in her direction I didn't see her walking out of the door If I had taken my time she'd be lying here still Inspector Mills, Inspector I can't attempt to point you in her direction I was blinded by the look in her eyes If I had just followed through then I wouldn't be calling you America Biography The History of America The year 2010 marks the 40th Anniversary of perennial classic-rock favorite, America. Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate Dan Peek) met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song "A Horse With No Name". America became a global household name and paved the way with an impressive string of hits following the success of their first #1 single. Forty years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound. America's journey has found them exploring a wide variety of musical terrain. Their best-known tunes, which also include "I Need You," "Ventura Highway," "Don't Cross The River," "Tin Man," "Lonely People," and "Sister Golden Hair" were cornerstones of 1970's Top 40 and FM rock radio. Yet beyond their impressive catalog of hits, listeners would discover there was always much more to America than surface perceptions. The combination of Gerry Beckley's melodic pop rock and Dewey Bunnell's use of folk-jazz elements, slinky Latin-leaning rhythms and impressionistic lyric imagery contrasted well with Dan Peek's more traditional country-rock leanings and highly personal lyrics. America's albums--six certified gold and/or platinum, with their first greatest hits collection, History, hitting four+ million in sales--displayed a fuller range of the trio's talents than did their singles. Their material encompassed an ambitious artistic swath; from effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys to soul-bearing ballads, America displayed a flawless blend of disparate genres and styles as wide-open as the great American plains. Enjoying massive success early in their career, America earned their stripes as musical soldiers on the battlefield amidst the excess, craziness and chaos of the 70's. The trio won the Grammy® for Best New Artist in 1972 and began working with George Martin and Geoff Emerick in 1974. This successful team went on to record seven albums and several Top Ten hits, including "Tin Man" and "Sister Golden Hair". By the mid-70s, inter-band conflicts combined with an exhaustive touring and recording schedule exacted its toll on the group. With Peek's departure from the fold in 1977, his band mates rose to the challenge and carried on as a duo. Shifts in sound and direction, changes in producers and managers, and a renewed dedication to the craft of songwriting helped rocket America to the upper reaches of the pop charts in 1982 with their smash single, "You Can Do Magic." During this tumultuous time in their career, Beckley and Bunnell immersed themselves in their craft, infusing a newfound maturity into their rich body of work. Their growth as singers, songwriters and musicians has continued into the present day as illustrated by landmark releases such as 2000's Highway 3-disc box set, 2002's Holiday Harmony, an album comprised of seasonal classics and live showcases, 2007's Here & Now and 2009's Live In Concert: Wildwood Springs.
