Under the Underground  from In this Life©2007
Hey old friend how you been? Been a while
Thanks for letting me sit in
Always did dig your sound and your style and I hear about you now and then
I get off the mountain every once in a while
But most of the time I’m around
Layin low, takin it slow

Under the underground
Under the underground you do what you choose
You don’t have to scream when you’re singing the blues
Under the underground you can make ends meet
The clubs can’t cut it you can work the street

We jammed, sho did, wish it’d been recordred
Could send this session off to Uncle Dave
He’d play it, sho would, then you know we sho could
Make it on the underground hit parade
Public access plays us every once in a while
Lets people know we around
Under rated, under stated
Under the underground
Under the underground you’re livin to play
You bring in a little business to the mom and pop café
Under the underground you ain’t takin no chance
You know you made it big when the little kids dance

The Way it Ought to Be  from Soul to Soul©2013
Tear of pain and fist of rage
Will the two of you agree
That what makes you carry on
Is the distance that we’ve gone
From the way it ought to be
Troubles cover every page
Of our rough draft destiny
But before the ink is dry
We’ll raise our glasses high
To the way it ought to be

And tell the wind
To take it easy
No hurricanes
Just nice and breezy
It slips away
When you think you’ve got the key
What you’ve been holdin in your hand
Is your own unfolded plan
For the way it ought to be

Sister moon and father time
Don’t forget your family
Every day you disappear
Re you hidin in my mirror
With the way it ought to be
Little songbird in a cage
Singin like you’re wild and free
You’re a stranger to the sky
But your melody can fly
To the way it ought to be

And tell the wind
To take it easy
No hurricanes
Just nice and breezy
A breezy summer’s day
All the world was feelin free
Yeah it was just a silly dream
But funny how it seems
Like the way it ought to be

 

We’re Rollin  from Soul to Soul©2013
We’re rollin
Comin from Higher Ground
We’re rollin
Most the time clownin a round
Most the world tryin to dig itself out a hole
But down here Bud’s got it under control
And we’re rollin
Comin from Higher Ground

Amazin
How he puts up with our mess
By day’s end
We sure put the man to the test
Yorkshire clouds puffin out of dad’s pipe
He’s got the know how without the hype
And we’re rollin
Comin from higher ground

We’re rollin
Comin from Higher Ground
We’re rollin
Victrola turnin around, and around
Same crazy voices in all of our heads
Hush up and listen for when Bud says
“We’re rollin” comin from Higher Ground

 

Wind Up Singin The Blues  from In this Life©2007
I see you say that your heart is achin
I say I see that you ain’t fakin
But you tied up with Mr. Can’t Get Tied Down
Wind up with the brake up brakedown
I’m like a fish that can’t quit floppin
I know you’re wishin I’d start stopping
But you tied up with Mr. Can’t Get Tied Down
You wind up singin the blues

Darlin don’t you diss me I didn’t intend to do you wrong
Mighty Mississippi and me was meant to travel on
Take a toke and tackle your time, don’t try to tag along
Magician of your vision divine was just a vagabond

Cool breeze just makes me hotter
I’m like grease and you’re like water
And you tied up with Mr. Cant’ Get Tied Down
Wind up springin for my Greyhound
Days are dissapearin abra catabra
Soon as you’re gone I’ll wish I had ya
But you tied up with Mr. Can’t Get Tied Down
Wind up singin the blues

Darlin don’t you diss me I didn’t intend to do you wrong
Mighty Mississippi and me was meant to travel on
Take a toke and tackle your time, don’t try to tag along
Magician of your vision divine was just a vagabond
