about

Boyd Small (ex-patriot singer, drummer and producer) called me on the phone from Amsterdam. He said that "Me and My Records" was interested to do another CD with me and would be willing to pay for 3 or 4 days in the studio, mastering, etc. Would I be interested.

Well, of course I was interested. Just for starters putting out a CD on A European label would help my agent over there get better gigs. And if it was good, who knows? Maybe start the ball rolling again.

I didn't really have any new songs. I had some lyrics but I hadn't been playing much guitar. My hands had been bothering me and I just wasn't interested to play (I found out later it was Carpal Tunnel Syndrome).

I flew over in November of 2005 and we made an album in 5 days. I think it came out great. Bart Kamp has been my European bass player for a number of years now and he and Boyd are a really fine rhythm-section.

This CD is Boyd's baby. He really wanted to see me back in the game. And you have to have something new if you want to tour. Besides, we all needed the work. So he brought in some songs and I wrote a couple on the spot. I don't know how good my songs are here, but I kind of need a little pressure now and then to keep me honest.

Track Name: Hello Sundown
Hello Sundown

Hello sundown so glad you’re here
We’ve been waiting so long for you to appear
‘Cause I know when the sun goes down
That’s the only time my love can come around

Hello sundown goodbye pain
We’ll be here tomorrow down on lover’s lane
She belongs to another man
That’s why I’m going to see her any way that I can

Hello sundown we know it’s wrong
We try to fight it for oh so long
Temptation and desire sets our hearts on fire
We’re chained and bound that’s why we’re waiting for you to come ‘round

Hello sundown
Hello Sundown
Hello sundown
Hello sundown
Track Name: Somebody's Happened To Our Love
Somebody’s Happened To Our Love

I can’t reach you baby on the telephone
When we’re together I still feel all alone
Write you love letters that aint enough
I got a real bad feeling somebody’s happened to our love
Somebody’s happened to our love

I can’t touch you baby when you sit so far away
I can’t learn you nothing if you don’t hear a word I say
When it’s time for loving you don’t feel like being touched
I got a real bad feeling somebody’s happened to our love
Somebody’s happened to our love
Somebody’s happened to our love

I can see I’m losing you and I don’t know why
Only make it worse the harder that I try
Please tell me baby you owe me that much
I got a real bad feeling somebody’s happened to our love
Somebody’s happened to our love
Somebody’s happened to our love
Somebody’s happened to our love
Track Name: Let Me Know
Let Me Know

What’s the matter with you baby lately all you wanna do is cry
What’s the matter with you baby lately all you wanna do is cry
You just sit around and ball won’t give me a reason why

If it’s something that I’m doing baby tell me and I won’t do it no more
If it’s something that I’m doing let me know and I won’t do it no more
If you want me to go say the word and I’ll be out the door

You got to let me know
You got to let me know
You got to let me know
Please let me know
Let me know what I’m doing wrong and I won’t do it no more
Track Name: Red Room
Red Room

Red hair red shirt
Looks like this is going to hurt
Lost dogs sneaking through the haze
Just thinking ‘bout the good old days

Take me to your red room
Keep your curtains closed
Don’t want no sunshine
Don’t want that anybody knows

Red port red wine
Feels like I’m committing a crime
Lost dogs haven’t any plans
Looks like we’re going down again
Track Name: On A Roll
On A Roll

Don’t you worry baby honey never fear
I’m only drinking whiskey and I’m chasin’ it with beer
I’m on a roll tonight I’m on a roll tonight
You know you never stop me
You might as well not try
I’m on a roll tonight

Don’t you worry honey I do it all the time
I’m drinking tequila and I’m sucking on a lime
I’m on a roll tonight
I’m on a roll tonight
You know you never stop me
You might as well not try
I’m on a roll tonight

Well I can’t lose now baby you know I never fail
I never drink the cheap shit I only drink fine, fine ale
When I’m on a roll
You know you never stop me
You might as well not try
I’m on a roll tonight
Track Name: Plain As Day
Plain As Day

I was just lying in my bed
Tucking my pillow under my head
I started drifting off to sleep
But before I got too deep
Yeah it was strange I heard you calling out my name
I heard your voice as plain as day
You was calling out my name

Shocked my eyes wide open
Sent a jolt right through my head
I tried fallin’, fallin’ back to sleep
So I can hear all the things that you said
It was strange I heard you calling my name
I heard your voice as plain as day
You were calling out my name

I spent the next few hours
Countin’, countin’ all the cracks
In the pane on the ceiling
Just tryin’ to get the feeling back
Track Name: Six Shots
Six Shots

I woke up lower than I have ever been
You know I push off the bottom every now and again
This time is different, the needle’s in the red
No matter what I do can’t get you outta my head

Give me six shots
All in a line
I been mistreated and I don’t mind dyin’
Give me six shots and I’ll be fine
Just give me six shots

I knew from drop one it was going to be bad
All that I’ve lost that I once have had
I don’t like feeling the way that I do
How long baby ‘till I’m over you

I don’t need someone to tell me - it’s understood
The way I live my life - it’s just no good
Gave everything I had ‘till there was nothin’ left to lose
What I do from here on out is for me to choose
Track Name: What's It Coming To
What’s It Coming To

I tried to tell you but you would not hear
Went in one and out the other ear
I tried to reason but you made it clear
You’re not as bright as you first appear

Ah-ooh what’s it coming to
Ah-ooh what’s it coming to

I tried to tell you but your mind was set
Heartache and trouble is all you’ll get
I tried to warn you that my love is true
Just so happens that it’s not for you

I tried to tell you that my heart is cold
I won’t be there when we get old
I don’t know why I’m even standing here
Like a fool for all these years
Track Name: Woe To Me
Woe To Me

Woe to me the damage I have done
Like I myself was in orbit ‘round the sun
I beg for your forgiveness but I don’t expect it none
Woe to me the damage I have done
When the sun is shining it don’t shine on me

Woe to us the heartache we have caused
Everything we touched simply dissolved
I am left with nothing all trace of you is gone
Woe to us the heartache we have caused
When the sun is shining it don’t shine on us

Woe to them that know a thing or two
Always guess the ending but cannot take a que
I beg for your forgiveness there’s nothing you can do
Woe to them that know a thing or two
When the sun is shining it don’t shine around here
Track Name: Thinking About Crying
Thinking About Crying

Walked up the street nothin’ on my mind
Walked up to the corner to see where you and I
Used to drink, laugh and have a good time
But I aint even thinking about crying
Aint thinking about crying

Went on down by the candy store
But I don’t care to eat your candy any more
I aint waisting, waisting anymore time
I aint even thinking, thinking about crying
Aint thinking about crying
Aint thinking about crying

Wandering around by the candy store
But I aint even thinking about you anymore
I aint thinking, thinking about crying
I aint thinking about waisting my time
Aint thinking about crying
Aint even thinking about crying
Thinking about crying

This is the last time I’m going to say this is the last time
