She liked the wind I never did She liked the wind I never did She’ll forget but I never will I could stand the cold she never could I could stand the cold she never could She'll forgive but I never would I hope you say that I was kind I hope you say that I was kind I might not get out this time I’ll wait for you like I always do I’ll wait for you like I always do Long as sorrow I wait for you Now I stand like a tree on the plains I stand alone like a tree on the plains Wind never stops like a promise made Wind never stops whispers your name

I know the road is dark and lonely This time no one can say I’m wrong I feel the endless sky above me I float on angel wings of song I’m ridin’ a magic wind, ridin’ a magic wind Ridin’ a magic wind, I’m ridin’ a magic wind And all the times that I was leaving I knew that I’d come back somehow Through darkened shadows now I’m seeing No harm can ever find me now I’m ridin’ a magic wind, ridin’ a magic wind Ridin’ a magic wind, I’m ridin’ a magic wind Fast wing now take me straight and true Fast wing now take me straight to you I float through emerald skies of blue I know my song will see me through

There was a time when I had no fear Climb any mountain just to be near But now we’re close and I’m on my knee Somethin’ make me tremble like a leaf in the breeze What does it take to visit your heart I’d treat it with care like a national park I won’t stay long like a passing star What does it take to visit your heart I know that love wasn’t always kind But we’ll go slow not so hurried this time A long forgotten wind still calls to me And there’s only one place that I wanna be Like a river that always flows Been on the move called nowhere home Seen the TaJ Mahal crossed the river Nile But you say the words that always make me smile What does it take to visit your heart I’d treat it with care like a national park I won’t stay long like a passing star What does it take to visit your heart

No heat in the van and I'm runnin' on fumes Been a hundred miles since I thought about you But I'm movin' I keep movin on Pushin' ahead I keep movin' down the road Bridge fallin' down up around the bend Ain’t had no good lovin’ since I don't know when But I'm movin' I keep movin on Pushin' ahead I keep movin' down the road I push the van up to sixty-five I should be happy I'm still alive And I'm movin' I keep movin on Pushin' ahead I keep movin' down the road Flyin' high just a rowdy and handsome I'm still smilin' I'm still dancin' And I'm movin' I keep movin on Pushin' ahead I keep movin' down the road No heat in the van but I'm singin' some tunes Been a hundred miles since I thought about you And I'm movin' I keep movin on Pushin' ahead I keep movin' down the road Pushin' ahead I keep movin' down the road

I ain’t so worried I ain’t so troubled And now my mind don’t seem so muddle Ain’t gonna worry ‘bout no loose ends Things ‘gone take care of themselves This time around I’ll speak the truth Anyway got nothin’ to lose I’ll be happy time will tell Things ‘gone take care of themselves On my own me alone Gonna let the river flow I’m gonna try to live a clean life Not get so lonesome on my mind I’ll find a place and look around Gonna be happy any day above ground Ain’t gonna worry ‘bout no loose ends Things ‘gone take care of themselves

I Miss You 02:56
Every drawer is full every door is stuck Every closet’s crammed with too much stuff All the bills are paid car is runnin’ too But there’s a hole in my heart you can drive a truck through I Miss You x3 At night I pretend to hold you close But like a dream it comes and goes I ask again and I wonder where Always seems to be my cross to bear I Miss You x3

I used to have me some Washingtons I had a little too much fun Now I’m exactaly back to zero Exactaly back to zero What’s gonna happen to poor old me Women used to call every night of the week I loved a couple exspecially But I’m exactaly back to zero Exactaly back to zero What’s gonna happen to poor old me bridge Whoever said less is more ain’t never had pockets this sore In a pretty soon time I’ll be back it the game I’m absitively sure you’ll be callin’ my name Girl won’t you tell me you’ll play your part Lend me a dollar finance this heart ‘Cause I’m exactaly back to zero Exactaly back to zero What’s gonna happen to poor old me bridge 2 It’s no use to sittin’ like a worried man got to get to calculatin’ just as best as I can I never have trouble knowin’ where I stand I can calculate what I’m worth on one hand Now if you got a nickel I’ll appropriate mine We’ll rub ‘em together make a lucky dime ‘Cause I’m exactaly back to zero Exactaly back to zero What’s gonna happen to poor old me Poor old me

They were all lookin’ for me this time when I left Seems I have to ‘pologize to every woman that I ever met For everyone I hope this time love won’t be so callous Maybe things’ll change when I pull into Dallas Why does it always seem colder when you’re leavin’ a place I wanna head anywhere where the wind ain’t in my face We had an opening and we let it slip right past us Maybe things’ll change when I pull into Dallas Well I’m a prisoner but the road just carries on Yea it ain’t like it seems I’m a prisoner to a song The loser was love I was tryin’ to make somethin’ happen Maybe things’ll change when I pull into Dallas Why does it always seem colder when you’re leavin’ a place

You left and now what will I do There must be more that’s not showin’ I can’t begin to see what lies ahead But I keep tellin’ myself chorus One door closes and another one opens There’s got to be love ahead One door closes and another one opens That’s what I’m telling myself Did our love fail fall by the side From the words that were not spoken Is it over now I hang onto a thread But I keep telling myself chorus I can’t hear you now you’re too far away It seems our love line is broken I don’t believe the words inside my head But I keep telling myself chorus
11.
It hurts my feet to walk I hurts my teeth to talk But I’m gonna keep walkin’, gonna keep talkin’ Till I find my way back home to you It hurts my eyes to see, and I don’t like the color of things But I’m gonna keep seein’ gonna keep believin’ That one day my troubles all will end One day I’ll lighten my load, one day get off of this road One day gonna point your way and I’ll sit right down and stay It hurts my ears to hear, and it always brings a little tear But I’m gonna keep listenin’ gonna keep fishin’ For one day the truth to all be clear One day I’ll lighten my load, one day get off of this road One day gonna point your way and I’ll sit right down and stay It hurts my brain to smile, and you gotta be insane to try But I’m gonna keep smilin’ gonna keep on tryin’ Till I lay my tune down by and by
12.
Mistakes will be made love lost too With luck a new heart will grow Hang on to your corner of dreams Any wind can blow Any wind, any wind, any wind can blow Hang on to your corner of dreams, any wind can blow Looking for answers with no road maps You will know when you know Don’t lose your ears for the stories of hope Any wind can blow Any wind, any wind, any wind can blow Don’t lose your ears for the stories of hope, any wind can blow And wind, any wind, any wind can blow Hang onto your stories of hope, any wind can blow

about

This album was recorded over a two year period from 2016-2017. My goal was to record an all original solo CD, but for a long time we weren’t sure if the songs needed more. So we demoed most of them with guitar, bass and drums. But I also wanted to highlight the sound of the guitars, sort of the way Georgia O’Keefe would magnify the view of a flower, so we kept coming back to solo renditions. Williamson Magnetic Recording Company (Willy Mag for short) is uniquely designed to capture a performance; analog recording decks, nothing digital, and reel to reel tape. Only one song had the guitar and vocal recorded separately, every other song was live into one mic, no edits, no fixes. Hopefully it will give the listener a closer connection to the songs and to the performance.

TO HAVE A CD SENT TO YOU SEE SHIPPING BELOW.
"STILL WATERS" is an all acoustic instrumental CD available for a free download.
"Magic Wind" is my most personal CD. After I wrote 'She Liked The Wind', I realized I had written several songs about a failed relationship that included or referenced the wind, and her. I think they make up a collection of songs that fit together and tell a story.
