When You Fall In Love

LYRICS
What do you get when you fall in love?
Achin’ and shakin’ is what I’m thinking of
Finding I’m pining
Longing too long
Don’t need reminding
… livin’ a blues song

What do you get when you fall in love?
Quackin’ heart breakin’ is what I’m thinking of
What do you get when you fall in love?
Makin’ no mistakin’ is what I’m thinking of
What do you get when you fall in love?
Stakin’ breathtakin’ is what I’m thinking of

Freedom Train

LYRICS
Pulling out of the station
Headin’ down the track
No need to bother lookin’ back
If you are out there ahead
Don’t look over your shoulder
Lessons you learn growin’ older

I better pay attention
Or I might miss my stop
Pay attention… stay on top
Or find the end-of-the-line
No! Please not that… It’s not my time
I tell ya doctor, “I feel fine!”

Glass half-full of satisfaction
On my way to saturation
Cup overflows with jubilation
When every day’s a celebration
Thankful for all of creation
Reaching self-realization
Pulling into my destination

Follow The Bouncing Ball

LYRICS
Follow the bouncing ball
It’s a sing-along for all
The Bouncing Ball Ball
Be you picker be you grinner
Leave a glass slipper
Following The Bouncing Ball Ball

Follow the bouncing ball
Dance, twirl, sprawl
The Bouncing Ball Ball
Enormous for us all
Enormous with us all
The Bouncing Ball Ball

By chance would care to dance
Dip full? We’ll enthrall
I’ll catch you… you won’t fall
At The Bouncing Ball Ball

Carriage-pumpkin uninstall
Stroke of midnight call
Better get back to your house
Before your ride turns to mouse

Rustle In The Henhouse

LYRICS
There’s a rustle in the henhouse
Must be a fox… or maybe a louse
Or a wolf in sheep’s clothing
… worth bothering looking?

Is it worth taking a look?
He stole your mother’s pocketbook
Gonna poke her in the eye
And by the roadside… die!
We’re talkin’bout yo mama
Political drama gonna kill yo mama
(Oh, give my mama back Obama!)

#MyPresident

LYRICS AND CHORDS

A C   A            C   A
A gremlin from the Kremlin
Em             A
Wormed his way in
C A    C   A     C   A
Lyin', Cheatin', stealin'
Em               A
Any which way he can
Can? Con? Can con
King Kong
Right's wrong

D                      C
Who does he think he's foolin'
Em                A
With that foolish grin
D               C
Maybe it's good thinkin'
      Em                    A
If we go ahead and wall him in

The conman like King Kong
Swinging from a New York tower
Danglin', cryin', squeezin'
Tryin' to take away Her power
Flim... flam... flimflam
King Kong
Right's wrong

City slicker / rural grifter
Pennsylvania Avenue rotten few
Sighin', denyin', dyin'
Replyin' "Whatever you say, I'll do!"
Flip flop... flipflop

Spilling Over

LYRICS
Do you want to feel up
Well, if you uplift
Do you want to feel high
Can’t buy… give the gift
(Get by… give the gift)
Loving unconditional
Embracing all
Loving is medicinal
Embraced by all
Don’t ever give up hope in the future
Don’t ever give up faith in the kids
Do fill up your heart till it’s spillin’ over
So the “should haves” are always “glad we dids”

Outlast The Past

LYRICS
I ask you
When the sea turns
From a lovely blue
To the deepest of green
What does it mean?
Forecast fast
Outlast the past
Future for sure
Ensure future

I ask you
When the sky turns
From a lovely blue hue
To so grey… almost black
Time to stand back?
Forecast fast
Outlast the past
Future for sure
Ensure future

The lunacy of blasphemy
The insanity baffles me
No need for conspiracy
When it’s a bureaucracy

The lie-rd conspired
The liar conspire
Bureaucracy hypocrisy

I ask you
What’s a man to do?

The Closer To Too Late

LYRICS
You can choose your own rate
Commander of your own fate
The longer that you wait
The closer to too late
Opened starting gate
Focused staying straight
Trying to participate
Before the expiration date
All the world’s a dance floor
Always room for one more
Come on, jump up, jump in
Take a shot at swingin’

All the world’s a stage
No matter what your age
You can join with the band
Makin’ music hand-in-hand

Heartbeat by heartbeat
Beat-by-beat by beat-by-beat

Johnny B. Goode

Coversong originally written and made famous by Chuck Berry

Johnny B. Goode.mp3

[Capo 1 to play in original key of Bb]

     A
Deep down in Louisiana, close to New Orleans,
A
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens,
      D
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
      A
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
    E
Who never ever learned to read or write so well,
             A
But he could play the guitar just like a ringin' a bell.

A
Go! Go! Go, Johnny, go! Go!
                  D
Go, Johnny, go! Go!
A
Go, Johnny, go! Go!
A                   E
Go, Johnny, go! Go! Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack,
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track.
Old engineers would see him sittin' in the shade,
Strummin' with the rhythm that the drivers made.
When people passed him by they would stop and say,
'oh, my but that little country boy could play'
[Chorus]
His mother told him, 'someday you will be a man
You will be the leader of a big ol' band.
Many people comin' from miles around
Will hear you play your music when the sun go down.
Maybe someday your name'll be in lights,
Sayin' "Johnny B. Goode tonight"

Aft Daft

LYRICS
The more that I learn
I learn the that I know
With knowledge you earn
The wisdom to grow
The that I learn
The more I don’t know
If there’s a stern
Need a bow to row?

If you don’t know starboard
How can you know your port
Don’t be the man overboard
If you’re not the aquatic sort
Aft daft?

If you wanna take a peek
n’ head up $hit creek
Better master the paddle
Before you get back in the saddle
Aft daft?!?!?!
Awkward if you paddled ass backward
Worse rattle — forget your paddle
Aft daft?!?!?!

The Kinder Kind

LYRICS
I’ve traversed over the land
Mountain to the sand
I’ve traveled over the ocean
Just to long to be home again

My manners I’ve tried to mind
Go out of my way to be kind
And all the while I find
There’s way more kinder than I’m
From: my heart. Signed
(with a kiss like this)

I can see I need more humanity
I can see the possibility
I can see my synergism with society
I can see it’s time to be what I can be

Countless Blessings

LYRICS
Why count the blessing you’ve got
If a blessing’s at cost
In the time that’s allot
Each count’s a moment lost

If you try to please
What’s between the knees
Just to get some sleaze
Above all others’ needs
The blessing of bliss
Could all go amiss

If you try to please
The depths of greed
Collecting your fees
Above an other’s need
The blessing of bliss
Could all go amiss

Mother Said

LYRICS
Yes, Mama, it’s true
You are growing old, too
That’s the value
Of loving the whole time through
My Mother, the sun is shinning bright
My Mother, can you still see the light?

Yes, Mama, bones disintegrating
Yes, Mama, most devastating
Yes, Mama, the ear won’t hear
Yes, Mama, the plight of sight

Yes, Mama, it’s true
You are growing old, too
That’s the value
Of loving the whole time through
In the end, you get what you give
Cherish every moment you live
My Mother, the sun is shinning bright
My Mother, can you still see the light?
