Story

The opening cut from the CD Nobody's Angel.

Lyrics

I been through some trouble

but I ain't never quit

got myself together

didn't like it one bit

I'd rather take it easy

live out on a raft

be nothin' but a dreamer

but nobody would laugh

when they see my ship a' comin'

up the river one day

glory hallelujah, baby

love is here to stay!

 

this one's got to be real

this one's got to be real

no matter what you're thinkin'

no matter how you feel, baby

this one's bound to be real

 

It was on a Sunday mornin'

I remember it quite well,

I thought I'd do some fishin' 

put my feet up for a spell,

all at once it hit me 

there was somethin' on my line

I called the operator

and she answered just in time

the water started risin' 

the wind began to roar

I got a funny feelin' 

this had happened once before

 

and this one's got to be real...

 

When I woke up from my coma

I was feelin' kinda dead

I thought I saw an angel

standin' by my bed

she woke me from my slumber

put my feet back on the ground

I thought I was in heaven

every time she came around

people called me crazy 

told me somethin' wasn't right

I told them don't you worry now

I think I've seen the light!

 

and this one's got to be real...

Story

A new original song for the holidays.

Lyrics

The winter snows are fallin'

the longest nights are here

it's Christmas on the radio

time is drawing near

 

We gather close together

where we are safe and warm

with friends and family around us

we wait out the storm

 

But somewhere on this silent night

someone needs our love

it won't come from far away

no, it won't come from up above

 

So let us sing a Christmas song

for everyone to hear

and let us build a better world 

in the coming year

Story

This is the second song to be released from the upcoming CD, Nobody's Angel. The bluesy narrative is beautifully supported by the harmonica playing of Hatrack Gallagher and the vocal harmony of bandmates Robin Winter and Bill Mantone. Check out the Youtube lyric video here.

Look below for the previous release, The Old Violin.

Lyrics

down in an alley,

late in the day

I saw an old man

in a doorway

he didn't want my money

didn't ask for my spare change

he just looked through me

and I thought I heard him say

 

mister, you don't know me

and I don't know you

you don't know nothin'

about the things that I been through

there's no way to tell you

why I'm here by this door

but one thing I do know

and I know it for sure

 

everybody's lonesome tonight

everyone's got a heartache 

that won't come out right

and everybody's searchin'

for just one ray of light

but everybody's lonesome tonight

 

I went on my way

lookin' for a good time

couldn't get that old man

out of my mind

the sound of his voice

the look in his eye

came right back to me

from every stranger I passed by

 

I stopped in to a bar

to look up some old friends

but I could not connect

with any one of them

the mirror by the table 

when I looked in to see

there's that old man

starin' right back at me

and sayin'

 

everybody's lonesome...

 


the evening was over

I was feelin' kinda strange

back in the alley

only the light had changed

as I walked to that doorway

he flashed me a smile

and a wave of his hand

said come sit by me awhile

 

I never heard his story

never told him mine

but while we sat together

he opened a doorway 

in my mind

now when I'm lonely

and far from my hone

a voice in the night says

you can never be alone, 'cause

 

everybody's lonesome...
