Lesson Or Two (free) 03:14
Lesson Or Two Everyday I got the blues Put on some coffee and tie my shoes Read the paper and make my bed Then I go straight out of my head I’m a rock n roller baby don’t you know People come to see me I really stop the show When it comes to loving you Baby maybe I could use a lesson or two Out the door and down the street Moving to the big rock beat There’s no work that I want to do Baby maybe I got a bad attitude I’m a rock n roller baby can’t you see Everybody wanna party with me When it comes to loving you Baby maybe I could use a lesson or two Come on baby I’m trying to explain Rock n roll just drive me insane There’s no work that I wanna do Baby maybe I got a bad attitude I love you baby and that aint no lie I never mean to make you cry But I won’t lay down my guitar ‘till my name;s in lights baby I’m a star I’m a rock n roller baby don’t you know People come to see me I really stop the show When it comes to loving you Baby maybe I could use a lesson or two

Oh Johnny Why I was talking with Johnny Walker ‘bout why I been so low How I aint got no one to love me No place to call my own How the devil conned my mama To spite her only son ‘cause she never will forgive me For things I aint never done Oh Johnny why Oh Johnny why Oh Johnny why Why do they treat me this way Me and Johnny was reminiscing ‘bout the way things used to be When I made love to my baby She said there aint nobody but me She said aint no way no body Could treat her like I do But I took her love for granted Now my baby is untrue I was talking with Johnny Walker He’s been my only friend He’ll stand by me forever At least until the end He calms me when I’m troubled He helps me carry on Everyday I need his courage ‘cause all of mine is gone

Looking Back As I was walking down the street A pretty girl did I meet She was looking oh so sweet Just an angel from her head down to her feet I was looking back to see if she was looking back to see if I was looking back at her She had a head of golden hair I'm going to follow everywhere She was looking oh so good Like them young girls should She had such a beautiful smile I wanna walk with her awhile She was looking oh so good Like them young girls should

I See Trouble When she leaves a room A room lies in ruin So nonchalant I know what she’s doin’ When she smiles at me I see the gears turnin’ I may be slow But baby I’m learnin’ I see trouble When she calls my name I know that I’m through ‘cause I got no defense For what a woman can do When she talks about love She’ already plannin’ A little flower garden And a house to put a man in I see trouble Trouble for the rest of my life I see trouble Trouble for the rest of my life When she kisses my lips A man lies in ruin A logical progression When you know what you’re doin’ When she talks about love It’s already decided Who sleeps on what side And how the closets are divided I See trouble Trouble for the rest of my life I see trouble Trouble for the rest of my life She’s counting on me to have a one-track mind ‘cause she knows every man is the marrying kind

Continental Breakfast I’ll have a continental breakfast In my usual chair A flower on the table At the booth of despair Waitress please don’t look like you care Might be more can I can bare I’ll have a continental breakfast For old time sake Equal parts coffee Tears and heartache Waitress please don’t make the mistake To set the table with a second plate I’ll have a continental breakfast And I’ll try to explain Why I’m through with love When I get on that plane Waitress please remove my name From that booth of regret and shame I’ll have a continental breakfast And never again Will I cry in my coffee ‘bout what might have been Waitress please forgive me for my sins I aint never coming back this way again I aint never coming back this way again I aint never coming back this way

about

DOMESTIC RELEASE OUT OF PRINT
Re-released as "I See Trouble" by Continental Records

In the late 80's and well into the 90's Dan Sause ran a business called "Locals Only" in Portland, Oregon that sold CDs and records by local musicians. I used to hang out there and talk shop. One day Dan says to me "Monti, what would it take for you to record an 'Unplugged' CD?" I thought about it for a minute and said "I don't know, $1500 or so." Dan wrote me out a check and I booked two days at Gung Ho, a recording studio in Eugene, Oregon. All the tracks were recorded live, including vocals. It was the smoothest recording session ever, where every track seemed effortless in it's execution. Trust me - that doesn't happen very often.

There wasn't much going on in P-town at that time so I moved to Los Angeles to see if I could shake things up a little. I've always been out of step with the L.A. shuffle. What's a no-nonsense guy doing in a place like L.A. anyway? Trying to get a record deal, that's what. But after a year of rejection letters and hangovers, I moved back to Portland. I got some money together and recorded a couple more acoustic tracks and made "Unglued" a stronger album. I hadn't initially wanted to shop this record in Europe because I didn't think it would fly over there. Fortunately I am a much better guitar player than I am a psychic because the newly renamed album was a hit in Europe.
