Biography

Milton has been writing since his teens during his time with the rock group Phase Four. While continuing his writing, Milton spent 15 years in business & away from performing until returning as lead singer of the GTO Band in 2000. Touring Atlantic Canada as the headline act at major festivals and corporate functions, he currently performs with the Overdrive Classic Rock Show. In what many have described as his best vocal performance to date, Milt teamed up with World Elvis Champion, Thane Dunn, paying tribute to the legendary vocals of Roy Orbison. This theatre tour included stops at the historic Imperial & Savoy Theatres. While Milton has been writing for many years, until recently his creations have been heard by only a select few.

Lyrics

Unconditionally

Written By: Milton Jerome

Unconditionally
Written by Milton Jerome (McAllister) 1995

Verse 1

I was a young man, goin' through life without a plan,
Wandering aimlessly
Since I met you darlin', I've wanted to leave the bags behind,
'Cause you made me complete.

Chorus 1

But I just can't seem to find the words,
To tell you what I'm feelin',
And I just can't seem to find a way,
a way to love you.
To love you, to love you, Unconditionally.

Verse 2

I wanna learn to love again, after a love that's gone wrong
Because you mean so much to me.
Since I met you darlin', I've wanted to put the past behind,
I don't want you to ever leave.

Chorus 2

I don't want history to repeat,
When love it turns to need.
I've got to find a way,
A way to love you,
Oh to love you, to love you, Unconditionally.

Days Go By

Written By: Milton Jerome McAllister

Verse 1
I'm gettin' a little tired of this old town,
I don't know how much longer I'll be stickin' around.
With the same old people on Main St.,
And the same old road at my feet.

I'm gettin' a little tired of this old town,
The cold grey sky's kinda draggin' me down.
Year after year as the seasons go by,
The geese have got it right when they're takin' to the sky.

Chorus
But every time when I see you,
WIth that twinkle in your eyes,
I know it's just the season,
That makes me cry. (And Days go By - Verse 2)
