    Sometimes


    2017 - 10.10

    Sometimes, my ears hear thunder.
    Sometimes, the darkness closes in on me.
    Sometimes, It’s so clear, then
    Sometimes, I can’t see a thing.
    I wonder what is true and where in the Hell are you? And I’m thinking….

    Sometimes, I hear the voices talk in the night.
    Sometimes, I just want to get away.
    Sometimes, the sun is so brilliant.
    Sometimes, I dwell on yesterday.
    I can see forward, I can look back and it doesn’t…. mean a thing.

    Sometimes, I hear the wind call your name.
    Sometimes, you’re in my dreams smiling.
    Sometimes, it’s the words you said.
    Sometimes, your memory makes me want to sing.
    The mark on my heart, was there from the start and I’m weeping.

    Sometimes, the world is so quiet.
    Sometimes, I hear billions of heart beats clamoring
    Sometimes, I grow so weary fighting it all….
    Sometimes, I feel time is….running away from me.
    In the beginning, I knew this for sure, just how to open the door. Now I’m left wondering…..

    Sometimes, the truth is so clear to me.
    Sometimes, the lies I see cause me so much pain.
    Sometimes, I know just where I’m standing then,
    Sometimes, It just happens…..again
    I put on a smile, carry it for a while, it’s lingering…..

    Sometimes, I got all the answers.
    Sometimes, I don’t know nothin’ at all.
    Sometimes, time is my enemy.
    Sometimes, my worries are so small.
    Another song, another day and the thoughts that get in the way, keeps me searching………

    Stellar Seas


    2015 - 01.13

    A winter day, but the sun came back
    To dance for a while before turning black.
    My mind is just starting to compose
    Some kind of new, typical prose.
    I hear a sound coming from over the hill
    A silent train is moving and another one still.
    Can’t keep my mind from drifting away
    Check my tether, I don’t want to stray.
    It’s all too much, yes indeed I see
    And it ain’t got nothin’ to do with me.

    Drifting now, in skies of Blue
    Half belongs to me and half belongs to you.
    I can’t tell you when, but I can tell you why
    Stop those tears, you don’t have to cry.
    Somewhere on the sea is where you’ll find me
    Escaping the invisible prison that I see.
    No longer held, no longer in the sway
    Floating free getting, outa’ the way
    On one hand I can count all I know
    The clock keeps spinning but time is so slow.

    Long past the point of turning back
    Keep going forward, adjust my tack
    Move the sails, pull the rudder in
    A brand new course to now  begin
    I got the strength, but I don’t have the time
    It has to work, It has to rhyme.
    Other ships are on this course
    I’m shouting Hail! Until my voice is hoarse
    But they cannot hear, the waves are too strong
    Hands are getting numb from holding on.

    Now in some eddy, away from the rocks
    I see many doors, but they are all locked.
    Keep on going, in uncharted seas
    Hoping that fortune smiles on me.
    And again, the skies are so Blue
    Showing me more, than I ever knew
    Ricochet between brand new days
    I just keep trying, there is a way.
    Steer by stars whispering sounds
    Pray that you live to say what you’ve found.

    June Solstice


    2014 - 06.21

    You know it in these times we just have to stop and look around
    Trying to find a way back and trying to move on.
    I see dreams, I see smiles, I see madness, talkin’ all the while
    I been a dreamer and I had my fun
    Took life as it came at me, spent my time on the run.
    Summer’s sun ya’ know its some kind of fun.

    But you know I have been stuck here, frozen in a fall
    All of my time gone, no home at all.
    Flirting with madness cause there is this call
    Ending up with sadness, living kinda’ small.
    But there has got to be dreams yes
    Got to be some dreams left.

    The sun beats down, my skin is ivory white
    I live in the dark, and now I hide from the light.
    Sometimes you get put down, put to the fright
    Sometimes the man scares you, in the middle of the night.
    Then the morning comes and you do it again
    All alone this time, no words from a friend.

    Big dreams rollin’ yeah they’re rolling by
    Thunder clouds on the horizon
    Begging me to try, Just one more before I die.
    It has got to be real, It has got to be real
    These things that I feel…..But what of the sadness
    When they go away? They go away…….

    Skippin’ skippin’ and a jumpin’
    Like I did when I was young
    My heart a thumpin’
    The shattered pieces of my life, will come together again
    And I’m gonna’ get it together, stop being a fool
    Get it together and stop waiting for you.

    In my time, did a little bit of it all
    Any day now, any day now, any day now
    Played guitar, wrote down words
    Tryin’ to make sense of it all.
    Who stole those things? Who stole those things?
    What happened to my life, my little schemes?

    I went down and didn’t care, No I didn’t care
    I would have died starving
    But for your care, but for your care.
    You don’t know me but you know who I was,
    That was a good enough reason
    To dust me off and listen to my cause.

    The longest day, the longest day
    I had to pick up my pen, write it away
    Reflecting on the road left behind…..
    Reflecting on the madness
    That you put in my mind…..
    That you put in my mind…..

    And all the new ones, they wanna’ dance in the street
    But its been barricaded, by Gov-Pigs on a beat.
    And the old songs still ring, yes they still call
    Get up and shake it, shake it, while you’re still warm
    ‘Cause you will fade, you will fade
    Gone…But not away, Gone, But not away.

    Wheel of Fortune


    2012 - 01.25

     

    I was on the road headin’ south

    The rain was pouring, I had a dry mouth

    I pulled into a drinking bar

    Stopping to rest after coming so far.

     

    The place was rough, kinda’ nice

    It had girls of every spice.

    I was talking to a woman next to me

    She didn’t say she wasn’t free.

     

    Her old man he called me out

    He’d been drinking and started to shout.

    I didn’t want no trouble here

    I just wanted one cold beer.

     

    So I put my jacket on, pulled the stool across the floor

    He called me a coward, followed me out the door

    I kept my face down all the way

    Thought it was time to get away

     

    I got to my bike and turned around

    That bastard  pulled a gun ,so I shot him down

    Yeah I shot him down, shot him down

    Fired my engine and got out of town.

     

    Now I’m on the run prison bound

    Wheel of Fortune is spinnin’ around.

    I’m no fool I got away

    Trouble follows me to this day.

    One for all you Lovers


    2011 - 02.14

    If I say I’ll still love you tomorrow

    And you know that’s just how I’d feel.

    If I say our love is a lifetime

    Surely you will know that I’m for real.

    And that life with you holds no pain.

    As we run hand in hand together, in the pouring rain.

     

    I if I say sorrow belongs’

    To the ones who don’t know love.

    And if say your beauty outshines the sun

    And you and I we were meant as one

    Aw….Oh….Life…it can sometimes be so fun.

     

    And if tomorrow brings my glory back

    There is nothing you would ever lack.

    For you my queen, are the only one.

    Oh I love you just like the Sun.

     

    You better believe it baby….

    Aw….Yeah…

    Just like the sun

    Aw….Yeah… 

    Just like the sun.

    It is a typical day

    In Oregon

    Mid -winter blues

    Got us all.

    Ain’t no sunshine

    Only bright clouds

    The days are chill and so

    I just walk toward the sun and go

    To those places in my mind.

    Places in my mind

    Just Do


    2010 - 12.15

    I am an older man, whose done the best that he can

    I was once a child, running beautiful and wild

    They tried to stop me, but still I, carried on.

    The highways are scattered, dead dinosaur dreams

    The air is poisoned, Industrial Revolutionary schemes

    I seen many strange things since I hit the road.

     

    Now my heart, I hurt it pretty bad

    It’s seen too much and its been, foolishly had.

    But I won’t complain, For I’ve known love

    Been inside Stone Castle, been here most of my life

    A prison I built to protect me

    From the scream of life

    I get a great sense of observation though

    A unique point from this castle view

    I spend much of my time now, trying to bring back it to you.

     

    I am a cosmic cowboy from the old school

    Ain’t gonna’ let the government make me a fool

    Gonna’ finish some plans

    The ones that I can

    The ones that have the best chance of coming to fruit

    Keep thinkin” about love

    Keep thinkin” about love

    Keep thinking about love………

    My Mind is Still in Winter


    2010 - 11.28

    My mind is still in winter

    But my heart is in the spring.

    I said, My mind is still in Winter

    But my heart is in the spring.

    All of this sufferin’

    Why it don’t mean a doggone thing.

     

    The Winter wind it howls

    But my feet are in the sand

    I said the Winter wind it howls

    But my feet are in the sand

    I’m wishin’ it were warmer

    Somewhere else in this land.

     

    My mind is still in Winter

    Ain’t no sunshine at all

    My mind is still in Winter

    Ain’t no sunshine at all

    I’m just waiting on my baby….

    Been waitin since the fall.

    Blow Away


    2010 - 10.18

    Watched my Heaven disappear in smoke today

    The fire I had spent years building, protecting, just got blown away

    Extinguished by someone else just ’cause it was different day

    For every last reason to go on. There some new excuse to make it wrong

    I look at all my efforts and wonder what have I done?

     

    Blow away, the dreams that tear at your heart 

    Blow away, and make a brand new start

    Blow away…….

     

    Ever give your life, to something you thought you had

    Only to find out it wasn’t good enough or bad?

    Seeing fate snatch it from your hand

    Nothin’ much to say but, “God that’s tough!”.

    It was supposed to be good, but now it’s so rough.

     

    Blow away, the dreams that tear at your heart

    Blow away, and make a brand new start

    Blow away…..

     

    Ever wake up alone in the middle of the night

    Wondering about all the things you didn’t do right?

    Realizing, you have lost the long, long, fight

    The struggle for someone to hold and love

    And a happy home that fits you like a glove.

     

    Blow away, the dreams that tear at your heart

    Blow away, and make a brand new start

    Blow away……

     

    A man and woman find themselves first as strangers

    And when they part, it gets stranger even still

    Two empty glasses always waiting, yet never getting filled.

    It’s like a practical joke played on you played by a God

    Who walks around pointing out paths that can’t ever be trod

     

    Blow away, the dreams that tear at your heart

    Blow away, and make a brand new start

    Blow away……

    Moving Slower (I can still try)


    2010 - 10.15

    Today I got up early, everything is hurting

    The clock said I was running late.

    It was fall with a clear blue sky

    Colors are turning, summers gone by

    Green colors fade…….

    I can still try, I can still try.

     

    Opened the curtains and looked out

    Fog was on the fence in the yard.

    I’m livin’ in the city and it’s so hard

    To get it together and move away

    ‘Cause in the country, it’s a brand new day……

    I can still try, I can still try.

     

    But I seem to be alive, starting  once again to thrive

    Trying to get by, with each new day

    I’m moving slower, moral feels a little lower

    But it’s a natural thing, that comes with age

    I think it’s time, I turn another page……

    I can still try, I can still try.

     

    When you get older, you gonna’ move slower

    And you have to accept the fact that it’s OK.

    Things change with the seasons

    I can’t give you any reasons

    On why it has to be this way……..

    I can still try, I can still try.

     

    Feel so tired, all the time

    Seems like it’s a crime

    To have your strength just run away.

    So much to do now, problem is I don’t know how

    To pick up the pace and finish the day…….

    I can still try, I can still try.

     

    I do things one at a time

    I continue to make my Rhymes

    Once in a while, I go out and play.

    Being alone makes it harder, that’s just for starters

    So many things now, get in the way…….

    I can still try, I can still try.

     

    But I still have some time, learned not to look behind

    I’m a little confused sometimes , but it’s OK.

    I’m still in a hurry, got no time to worry

    I will work it out, while I have the strength to shout

    About what’s wrong and right everyday……..

    I can still try, I can still try.

    This Ole Guitar of Mine


    2010 - 10.07

    This ole guitar of mine

    It’s been a friend for sometime

    For more than twenty five years

    The songs that I learned

    The color its turned

    The nights it held back my tears.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    We’ve done some time

    In dusty bars drinkin’ beer

    Through the good and the bad

    Over the miles we’ve had

    It’s always, always been here.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Taught me some rhymes

    12 strings to play the blues

    While women have come and gone

    As I learned new songs

    It was there to stop the tears.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Has made people dance

    And clap and drink all night long

    Some times it gathers dust

    And the strings may rust

    But we always would get it together again.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Has sang some songs

    In places where no one cared

    We’d strum some tunes

    Then sleep till noon

    And get up and do it again.

     

    This ole guitar of mine

    Go so far back in time

    But the future looks bright ahead

    With strings shiny and new

    My voice still rings true

    And I finally cleared my head.

     

    This ole Guitar of mine.

    Feel the Heat


    2010 - 06.17

    Gotta’ get back out on the Highway

    Feel the Asphalt Jungle Blues

    It’s motion in the  Rhyme

    Wheels spinning around  in time

    When it works out, it’s really cool.

     

    Give me a stretched out highway

    Somewhere I can slide away

    No more stop signs, parking meters, traffic fines

    Just a ribbon driving off into the blue sky far away.

     

    Signs of information glide through my eyes

    Getting caught in the brain

    You know what I been lookin’ for…

    Somewhere safe to play some tunes

    And a rest stop where I can sigh

    No more, lonely goodbyes

    No more, revved up Highway Blues.

    Just a nice little rest stop

    A place for me

    And you.

    Walkin’


    2010 - 05.29

    Just the other day I found myself walking on the road

    Headin’ south feeling my load of years

    The miles come harder than they used to

    I’m all tore up about the state of Blues

    Blue is what I feel.

    Blues come from my guitar

    Blue used to be my favorite color

    Until pain erased it from my eyes.

     

    Walkin, I’m walking, not talkin’

    These southern roads are so sublime.

    Yearning, hearts burnin’

    Will you ever be that kind?

     

    This road has taken my companions.

    Who turned off and went their own ways

    Some got lost in the canyons

    Some just gave up on the way.

    I seen all of these endings

    But begingings are very few.

    Just want to find a rest stop

    Someplace where I can enjoy the view

     

    Walkin, I’m walking not talkin’

    These southern roads are so sublime.

    Yearning, hearts burnin’

    Will you ever be that kind?

    Bare Bones Coffee Morning Blues


    2010 - 05.25

    Ain’t got no reasonable platfform

    Nowhere solid to sing my tunes

    Ain’t got no girl, in this whole wide world

    Not since the the day your love left you.

    Aint got no rhyme or reason

    For a Poet that’s a drag

    Though I’m still writing tiny little tunes

    And blowing up thought balloons

    I’m at the bottom of my bag.

     

    Thought I had backup

    Thought it was OK to not look behind

    I never will make that mistake again

    You know people can be so unkind.

    Don’t you give it a second thought

    Just do what you gotta do

    I be OK, sometime down the line

    Step back now I’m gonna’ play the blues.

    So many people goin’ crazy now

    So many people runnin’ late

    So many people goin’ underground

    So many people gettin’ straight

     

    That was a big mistake

    I took a lucky break

    And ran it through…..

     

    So many people burnin’ bridges now
    So many people passing away

    So many people hassle my way now

    So many people to pay today

     

    There was some clouds today

    They took my breathe away

    Had so so much to say this afternoon…..

     

    So many people gossip now

    So many people want more cake
    So many people taking what they found

    So many people in this place

     

    I saw a child today

    Who taught me how to play

    And wonder too….

     

    So many people scream so loud

    So many people look at them wave

    So many people count them now

    So many people gotta’ get away

    Midnite Avenue


    2010 - 05.14

    There is a place you can go if you choose

    Everyone there sings the blues

    It’s called Midnite Avenue.

    Everyone singing a different song

    Something dark in a minor key

    No one knows your history

    On Midnite Avenue

    Its not really a place

    But a state of mind

    Keep on moving or you’ll get left behind.

     

    You’ll get pulled over interrogated by the shoulder

    Even though your getting older

    The cops still hassle you in this town.

    On Midnite Avenue you can have anything you choose

    As long as your willing to pay the dues

    Life is cheap here on Midnite Avenue

    Truth is something everyone whispers about

    While they drink.

    That’s the offer you got to choose

    Do a little time

    On Midnite Avenue.

    Spirits in my yard


    2010 - 02.13

    Night was falling on the house of glass

    Look right in , you can see the past

    Silver shapes were spinning

    I had Spirits in my yard

    Trying so very hard

    To get the message through

    From the cosmic to the blue.

    Spirits in my yard.

    I must have dreamed of the past

    But was living in the future

    Silver shapes talk to me

    Telling me the things that could be

    Ghosttly figures from my past

    Made the journey but didn’t last.

    Now there are Spirits in my yard

    Trying so very hard

    To get the message through

    From the cosmic to the blue

    Spirits in my yard.

    Walk Me


    2009 - 10.30

    I am an older man now
    Named after my father
    Been alone in this life
    Since I can recall
    I’ve traveled all over
    Seen many things
    Some I’ll speak of
    Some I’ll just sing
    (Walk  in his footsteps when you get lost
    Walk in his footsteps if you are alone
    Walk in his footsteps when all else fails
    Walk in his footsteps he will take you home)
    I been lucky
    And I been had
    All in All it’s been a rough life
    Just wanna’ be a Dad.
    I still got my dreams
    Some are even close to real
    But I’ve lost my perspective
    On what needs to be dealed.
    (Walk  in his footsteps when you get lost
    Walk in his footsteps if you are alone
    Walk in his footsteps when all else fails
    Walk in his footsteps he will take you home)
    I’ve seen a lotta’ wins Lord
    All along the way
    Of my failures now, I got nothin ‘ to say
    I got me a woman
    I’d love to be in her life
    And have her in mine
    To pass the time
    I have other dreams
    These are like clouds passing in the the sky
    Dreams I work on every day
    I try and I try
    I write down some words, play a few songs
    Everything else
    I do seems to go wrong
    (Walk  in his footsteps when you get lost
    Walk in his footsteps if you are alone
    Walk in his footsteps when all else fails
    Walk in his footsteps he will take you home)
    But my day will come
    I have been told
    Things from my prayers
    Help me keep hold.
    (Walk  in his footsteps when you get lost
    Walk in his footsteps if you are alone
    Walk in his footsteps when all else fails
    Walk in his footsteps he will take you home)
