Dancing

you always wanna do, the do-si-do

dancing girl just ain't my thing

but I’ll go if you wanna go

I’ll be there to meet you

our love is gonna grow

you are my one and only

this town is gonna know

 

there will be dancing

on that star-lit floor

I’ll get there early

looking for my Lori Ann

we’ll spin round on

that big dance floor all night long

until the band is so darn tired

they can’t keep time, and-just-have-to-stop 

 

Hey pretty lady whatcha got going

hey my lady whatcha got going

hey little maybe whatcha got going tonight

hold tight

i got money no holes in my pocket

you gotta a photo of me in your locket

Hey pretty lade whatcha got going tonight

 

there will be dancing

on that star-lit floor

I’ll get there early

looking for my Lori Ann

we’ll make circles

on that big dance floor all night long

until the band is so darn tired

they-just-have-to-stop 

 

you always like the way

dancing makes you feel

dancing girl we’re to toe

to a spinning reel

I’ll be there to hold you

our love is gonna growk,

you are my one and only girl

the world is gonna know

 

Town dance tonight

Gonna dress up right

That Dancehall band

Well spin round and

You will take my hand

I Was

I was an angry kid

just started out that way

a mind for trouble, eyes turning red

thought the solution was in my head

 

Ooh, woah o - oh, i say no mo

Ooh, Yeah e- ah, ooh, git up and go

 

and then you spoke to me

that hate will tear you up inside

each morning when you greet this world

say love is a better way

 

I was an angry kid

just started out that way

a mind for trouble, eyes turning red

thought the solution was in my head

 

Ooh, woah o - oh, i say no mo

Ooh, Yeah e- ah, ooh, git up and go

 

I began to see

how my little life was so undone

at first I stumbled around some

then I found love is a better way

 

I was an angry kid

didn’t wanna end up that way

Found change in, my heart instead

had a revolution in my head

Frown Flew Away

I found your secret code

and took the long road

things went sideways

at the grand buffet

a clown routed traffic

through the zoo
turned at the zebra

found my way to you

 

threw the door open

in a split second

you looked at me

and yelled can’t be true
then our eyes met,
I said what I meant
then your frown flew away

Woohoo you and I, Woohoo

 

we ran the cornfield

our fate was now sealed

drew from the river

every drop she had

a politician stole all our cash

then came the friction

thought we’d never last

 

threw the door open

in a split second

I looked at you

and yelled can’t be true

then our eyes met,

you said what you meant

then my frown flew away

Woohoo you and I, Woohoo

 

door flew open

in a second

looked at you

can’t be true

our eyes met

what i meant

had to say

frown flew away

A Beautiful Future

I’ve seen the lights go down

in our little working town

the joy on mothers face

when I wander back around

she said chase your dreams

on this blueberry ball

be the bigger person

and rise above it all

 

be good and do good

for a, a better end

be one of the givers

inspire a beautiful future my friend

 

I’ve been greeted with blinding snow

driving through Loveland Pass

toasted by the fireside

when we got back at last

Good times

the outcome is not always oh so fine

hard days will find you

we all pay father time

 

be good and do good

for a, a better end

be one of the givers

inspire a beautiful future my friend

 

That’s some clean living

keep on giving

yeah you got that right

That’s some very good living

get on with that giving

yeah you got that right

 

look at all the wonderful people

you’re helping out there

I do believe I see

a bright little halo right over your head

Cross That Bridge

here we stand, ready to rumble

why can’t we tolerate a difference of opinion

whatever happened to civil discourse

why is it only about who lost and who won

come on, cross that bridge

come on, cross that bridge

move on, cross that bridge

let’s go

 

you ask me to tolerate, your particular interest

with no regard for mine?

in the end we can make this work out fine

we can come round to middle ground

 

we may crawl, we will stumble

whatever happens, we can get this done now

are you open to a forum of friendly discussion

i will meet you anytime, anyhow

come on, cross that bridge

come on, cross that bridge

move on, cross that bridge

let’s go

 

these are the most sensitive, delicate negotiations

I give, you give, we both feel pain

but in the end we got something to gain

can we come round to middle ground

is there any possible scenario

where we can work together,

can there be a place on God’s green earth

we can peacefully coexist

I tell you what

have your people, call my people

 

come on, cross that bridge

come on, cross that bridge

move on, cross that bridge

let’s go

 

I’m crawling, I’m walking

I’m stepping, I’m running

come on, cross that bridge

move on, cross that bridge

let’s go

Throw The World Away

jump a plane like a thunderbird

scream your lungs, say no word

climb a mountain and touch the sky

run from tears when you see me cry

walk the valley in those worn out shoes

been there so long, ya don’t know blue

dive the icy water, shake out your fear

back among the living

wish you were here

 

you pucker up so bitter

hide under all that glitter

straw man makes you angry

throw the world away

 

what’s with all the waiting

speak in colors so fading

caught up in that worn out gray

throw the world away

 

we live on propaganda

facts no longer matter

seek out the truth today

throw the world away

 

we do all the changing

laws just keep on failing

live and let live I say

throw the world away

 

what you talking about

Im just living it out one day at a time

I dont see no opposition

other than my own

I get my way on everything

just keeping it real

world gets so ugly

just keep to myself

keep to myself

I think I'll go find

a little island somehwere

I can disappear

stay for awhile

stay for awhile

Feather Light

my feet fell hard, on that narrow shore

the earth gave way, to my human form

I gave up the fight, I finally came round

My burden is light, I laid it all down

give it up, give a little give it up

give it up, give a little 

i gave up the ….

 

as I inhale, cold air burns my lung

this lion heart, burst on the run

I gave up the fight, I finally came round

My burden is light, I laid it all down

give it up, give a little give it up

take it up, give a little

i gave up the ….

 

I gave up the fight, I finally came round

my burden is light, I laid it all down

give it up, give a little give it up

take it up, give a little

i gave up the ….

I like to work the Crossing Crew idea by land and sea; crossing mountains, rivers, oceans, and intersections in life. This approach feeds a seemingly endless notebook of song ideas.
