I got a telephone call, the kind you never want to get By the time I put the phone down my face and shirt were wet I was in the car, and I had to pull, right over I cried, tears in my eyes on the hard shoulder A cop pulled in behind and walked up to the window He tapped on the glass and said you can’t stop here you gotta go I told him what happened, he said he was sorry, to hear But you gotta move on, you gotta move on you can’t stop here You gotta move on, you’re gone Now the neon’s lost its sparkle and the broadway ain’t so bright You gotta move on, you’re gone And I know it’s gonna rain in Nashville tonight I don’t know how I got home, driving in a daze I don’t know I got through, all arrangements had been made The cemetery gates, are closing but, I can’t leave The preacher said go home, you gotta go home, let them rest in peace It’s raining down in Nashville Raining down in Nashville Tonight

Turn your eyes away from me, baby Cos I am not the one you seek, Whatever it is you think you see is a long long way off reality . Don't listen to anything I’m telling you, baby When you hear my voice just walk away Stop hanging on my every word, don't believe whatever you just heard Cos I’d say anything I think you’d want to hear And I’d do everything just to keep you near I’d cheat and lie, steal and cry I’d double cross your lines in a heartbeat I’d do anything to make you mine and that’s the only true thing about me Your mouth can't trust the lips they're kissing, baby Your hands can’t trust the touch of my skin Don't believe your senses, don’t take down your fences to let me in I would kill all sense of right or wrong, baby I would steal you away from anyone I would swear to God above but then I’d go and lie to you for your love

If the sun is shining bright we just put our ray bans on If it's rain and thunder we just raise umbrellas and enjoy the storm If the fish ain't biting then we don't cry, just sit on the riverbank and watch the world go by If my girl ain't coming around tonight I'll just watch the game If she changes her mind well that's just fine we can set the bed aflame But if she just feels like holding hands and talking, we can go for a drive Cos we’re country, with country hearts and soul and that's how we roll CH: Hell yeah, that’s how we roll We just bend with the breeze and go with the flow We work and die, laugh and cry, love and let love go Hell yeah, that’s how we roll When it’s time to work we put our heads down and just get to it When it’s time to play there ain’t no shame if we completely overdo it But when it’s time to rest, to leave the stress behind, you’ll find us taking it nice and slow When there’s a life to live then we just get right on with it When it’s time to die, we cry then we get over it Cos the wheel keeps turning around and around, we get one spin only and that’s how it goes Cos we’re country, with country hearts and soul and that’s how we roll

Living Alone 04:29
I'm used to living alone but I don't like being lonely I'm not looking that hard but I'd love to find someone to hold me Who could fill the big hole in my world and the space in my bed But instead I'm getting too used to living alone I guess the internet's taken the place of a bar at the weekend I can hook up with suitable strangers twenty four seven And I've met some nice profiles, I've had some instant deletes The bitter and sweet, I'm getting too used to living alone I want somebody who knows where I came from Who knows all the same songs as me Who gets what I'm saying, who needs no explaining Someone just happy to be Soi if you're out there come find me, you'll recognise me I'll be in your comfort zone but don't leave it too long I'm getting too used to living alone I leave a light in the bedroom and the TV on when I go out So when I come home looks like someone is there in the house But when I open my front door nobody's waiting to greet me Just a voice on the TV I'm getting too used to living alone

about

I wanted to do something in the country vein but I have my own ideas about what can be country music. Main inspiration was the Metropolitan Country of the 70s which was as much mainstream pop as it was Nashville. I knew I wanted to play my banjo and resonator on this but I wanted a town and country production with strings and piano as well as pedal steel and guitars.
