For musicians, swing is a rhythm that gave life to much of the great music of the last century.

The song "So What" is a tribute to the upbeat attitude, the songs and musicians from that era.

"Unsung Hero" - most of us know one. Sorry athletes, politicians, pop stars,...not you.

For politicians, a swing state is where voter party affiliation is close to even and the winning party is difficult to predict in advance. Responsible citizens look are not swayed and work with their neighbors for a united state.

 

"Liberty Is Your Girl"  appreciates the freedom to pursue our individual dreams here. And also the freedom to pursue them elsewhere.There are nations happy to control the daily lives of residents. Most Americans want little of that.

It is individuals....people who have changed, become more accepting of the diversity of life, and improved many things in the last 75 years. Our individual actions say who we are.

"Get A Grip" ....the sky is not falling

People in power routinely deceive to keep and get more power. "Losing My Voice" is the loss of civil discourse. It is possible disagree and get along.

 

"Twitter Cruel" ...when we fail to think before stereotyping people and calling them evil! 

Freedom is a great and powerful thing where it belongs; in the hands of individuals, with limited oversight by states and federal governments.

A state of swing, a swing state, a united state.

Liberty Is Your Girl

you can go anywhere to make your world

choose to remain, liberty is your girl

take her there, and try to change her

don’t force no chain on me, I ain’t taken that

 

freedom taught me, freedom ain’t free

and power people not looking out for you and me

freedom taught me freedom ain’t free 

and little people learn keep that fire burning

 

on the light side. America is great

and all good people are not holding hate

happy living here, no fear

holding those close ones near

 

freedom taught me, freedom ain’t free

and power people not looking out for you and me

freedom taught me freedom ain’t free 

and little people learn keep that fire burning

 

on the bright side. America is fine

and I can keep or give away all that is mine

happy living here, no fear

holding those close ones near

 

you can run anytime and find your world

choose to remain, liberty is your girl

take her there, why try to change her

don’t force no chain on me, I ain’t taken that no

 

freedom taught me, freedom ain’t free

and power people not looking out for you and me

freedom taught me freedom ain’t free 

and little people learn keep that fire burning

Unsung Hero

in the heart of the night on a moonlit desert highway

saw sixteen shadows heroes gone by day

heroes are few,  fade fast into memory

those empty spaces and pain loved ones go through

 

being good at something, makes you famous

being famous only, makes you popular

when you the winner, someone a loser

but few people know,  you, my hero

 

in a dome of light we sit praying by your bedside

cancer cure waiting, asking God why

a hero comes through, make way for healing

and all our faces, grateful and smiling

 

being good at something, makes you famous

being famous only, makes you popular

when you the winner, someone a loser

but few people know,  you, my hero

So What

went down to the record store, piano man released one more

getting ready for Saturday night, got a, new shirt and pin point shoes

met a girl never looked so fine, found me a little valentine

she looks at me with dreamy eyes she is mine to lose

 

when you find your harmony tone, you'll never sing,  sing alone

someone to ride along, looking back at each worry gone

so what, start each day, 

so what, bills come my way

 

work hard, do your best, make a better world

you may be down but you’re back bigger than before

 

marching band blow through my door, this time worse than before, so what

curl up in anxiety, or say NO, this ain't my crazy street

to those voices in my head, I only hear, live life instead

power that created me, helps me be all I can be

 

when you find your harmony tone, you'll never sing,  sing alone

someone to ride along, looking back at each worry gone

so what, start each day, 

so what, bills come my way

 

work hard, do your best, make a better world

you may be down but you’re back bigger than before

 

went down to the record store, piano man released one more

getting ready for Saturday night, got a, new shirt and pin point shoes

met a girl never looked so fine, found me a little valentine

she looks at me with dreamy eyes she is mine to lose

Golden Get Away

quit your job left this place in a beat up blue winnebago

made a mark, gotta get free, and now away you go

along the way we learned that all change is not good

but change will come from those with nothing left to lose

 

Let me hitch a ride with you - golden get away

good people pay when change  - I’m afraid to say

Let me hitch a ride with you - golden get away

Let’s get away from the madness that shaking our world

 

cold cut vinyl, needle worn groove

 soul moving long before youtube

Warm days nights were long

take me back that summertime song

 

worn out words under that thumb,  beat up, you had to get go

played that card, enough is enough, time to let it show

and now you got your freedom, holding true to that pledge

Not gonna be the victim, working on empty revenge

Get A Grip

here you go again, crying me a river

hurt so bad, only was a sliver

big bad wolf coming for to get you

only this time, we gonna ignore you

 

when we panic easy to fear the worst

still small voice, can you hear it

never quite as bad as you think it will be

better in the morning - get a grip

 

ooh, ooh

 

there you go again, falling on me blue sky

the end is here, now we all gonna die

pessimist-er only know sorrow

lost today, already tomorrow

 

when we panic easy to fear the worst

still small voice, can you hear it

never quite as bad as you think it will be

better in the morning - get a grip

Twitter Cruel

and we play this endless gotcha game

and we say the most destructive things, 

and we play, and we play in the name I am right

 

and we tell, these endless hurtful lies

and we tell sins that make you want to die

and we tell and we tell I got you, I am proud

 

is there no kindness in your heart

has you’re anger killed your heart

do you know why you act this way, twitter cruel

 

and we claim, we wanna turn your head

in our rage, our words hurt us instead

and we say, stop, but we never do

 

and we tell, these endless hurtful lies

and we tell sins that make you want to die

and we tell and we tell I got you, I am proud

 

is there no kindness in your heart

has you’re anger killed your heart

ao you know why you act this way, twitter cruel

Losing My Voice

when we see through your disguise

you want to destroy all that is good

and when you capture the big prize

you will drive me from the neighborhood - oh yes you will

 

in freedom's name, you take away everything but my voice

in power’s game, you shame me when my choice is not your choice

 

from the look in your angry eyes

you call me the fool do what you will

and I’ll keep doing what I should

just don’t make me pay for what you kill

 

in freedom's name, you blame me for the color of my face

in power's game, call me stupid for sharing a little bit of grace
