This is a solid rock and roll song, well performed live with a crisp guitar solo at the end, sung in key, without histrionics. Just another day at the office for the rock and roll everymen. Lewis' music might have bordered on bubble-gum at times but it was quality sing-along stuff.
BTW, Jacob's Ladder was written by Bruce Hornsby, whom Lewis helped introduce to the rock and roll scene in the 80s (Lewis put this song on his "Fore!" album). Hornsby's "The Way it Is" album came out in 1986 and is still a personal favorite, although his live performances tend to ramble a bit too much for my conservative taste.
