Highway to San Luis
Highway to chess immortality

 8/24/2005 - The player interviews inspired me to write this song parody. They all seem determined for a tough fight and to bring forth their best game. These top 8 players represent the best of their kind. All of them are strutting down  on a highway to San Luis and one of them is on a highway to chess immortality.

Plotting and scheming, working on technical novelties
FIDE ticket on a one-way ride to chess immortality
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down to San Luis, Chess playing time
My rivals are gonna be there too

I'm on the highway to San Luis

I'm on the highway to  chess immortality

No stop signs, speed limit
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Like a wheel, gonna spin it
Nobody's gonna mess me round
Hey top rivals, paid my dues
Playing in a chess championship tournament
Hey Chess fans, look at me
I'm on my way to the promised land

I'm on the highway to San Luis

I' m on a highway to chess immortality
(Don't stop me)

And all my rivals are going down, all the way down
I'm on the highway to San Luis

I'm on a highway to  chess immortality
