Hello Sundown (free) 02:38
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

Let Me Know 03:03
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

Red Room 03:01
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

On A Roll 04:52
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

Plain As Day 05:42
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

Six Shots 03:51
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

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
9.
Woe To Me 04:15
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

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

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.
