You Ain't Goin' Nowhere

August 14th, 2009 + 12:08 PM  ·  DTF

Just thought I'd share a video from a show we played a little while ago. We did a large rendition of Dylan's You Ain't Goin' Nowhere for a finale. Enjoy.

Strawberries and Honey

June 4th, 2015 + 7:06 PM  ·  DTF

I  got the inspiration from the flavour on a bottle of kefir in the fridge but it worked. Here's a very fresh one, just wrote it in the last hour. Any comments welcome, thanks for listening.

She brings me,
Strawberries and honey
Juniper and tulips in bloom
Champagne and oysters
Fresh garlands of wildflowers and sweet perfume

But it, always takes me by surprise
That I should know her at all
Strawberries and honey and roses that's all

I bring her,
Sweet tea and oranges
Soft music and rose gold diamond rings
Fresh cheese and hot black coffee
Kind words and gentle winds

But it, always takes her by surprise
That she should know me at all
Strawberries and honey and roses that's all

And when asked,
How do we pray to that great maker above?
With strawberries and honey and roses and love, love, love

Christmas Song

December 14th, 2014 + 4:12 PM  ·  DTF

I wrote a small Christmas song as a present for my partner this year. I'm still working on the lyrics, suggestions are welcome! This is meant to be a short song, reminiscent of the short interlude tracks on prog albums like Wond'ring Aloud on Aqualung. Thanks for listening!

Christmas cheer is in the air
You can hear it beckon on the wind
And I can feel it wash good tidings out to sea

But I did not bring you gifts my dear
There's nothing slipped beneath the tree
Just this simple christmas song and melo-dy

So have a merry christmas and a happy new year
They'll be plenty more to come for you and me

Deep Down Lovin Feelin

August 7th, 2014 + 9:08 AM  ·  DTF

This is intended to be a cheesy bluegrass love song for my lady. Hope you like it, it's a clap-a-long!

I got sunshine on a rainy day
I got this deep down lovin' feelin in my heart
And I got your sweet voice to ease my pains
I got all this deep down lovin' feelin' in my heart


'cause my baby she takes care of me
feeds me chicken, wine, and weed oh my
lifts a soul when I feel blue
Nothin this world could tempt me so

I got your soft touch to raise me up
I got this deep down lovin feelin in my heart
and I got lightning spillin' from my guts
I got your deep down lovin feelin in my heart

'cause my baby she takes care of me
feeds me chicken, wine, and weed oh my
lifts a soul when I feel blue
Nothin this world could make me feel the way she makes me feel

And when your feelin lonesome at the end of a long day
You've always got that deep down lovin feelin in your heart
And the earth can wrap around itself and the distance melt away
When you've got that deep down lovin feelin in your heart   
You got that deep down lovin feelin in your heart
You've gotta have that deep down lovin feelin in your heart

In that Sweet by and by

August 6th, 2014 + 7:08 PM  ·  DTF

Here's a song I've been meaning to record for a year now. The recording quality could be better but it's a start. Let me know what you think. I performed this once and someone pointed out that the first two lines are ripped from a CCR song, I guess  that means I'm just as good a songwriter..?

There's a place
Up ahead where I'm going
Just as fast
As my feet can fly
In that warm mountain air
Where I won't have no care
I'm going home. To that sweet
By and by

In that sweet by and by
to which I'm bound
Far away
Up in heaven above
Where the cool waters flow
And the sweet grasses grow
I'm going home in that sweet by and by

I'm gonna meet all those friends I've been missing
Who made their way a long time before
Sniff that perfume rich breeze
'neath the magnolia trees
I'll be home in that sweet by and by

I'll be home when my loved ones surround me
I'll be home in the songs and the hymns
No more trials to bear
Just my faith and this prayer
To find my home in that sweet by and by

Deep Down Lovin' Feelin'

August 13th, 2013 + 7:08 PM  ·  DTF

So this a bluegrassy love song for my girlfriend. I wanted to write something happy and here it is:

I got sunshine on a rainy day
I got this deep down lovin' feelin' in my heart
And I got your sweet voice to ease my pains
I got all this deep down lovin' feelin' in my heart

Ch:

'cause my baby she takes care of me
feeds me chicken, wine, and weed oh my
lifts a soul when I feel blue
Nothin' in this world could tempt me so

I got your soft touch to raise me up
I got this deep down lovin' feelin' in my heart
and I got lightning spillin' from my guts
I got your deep down lovin' feelin' in my heart

And when your feelin' lonesome at the end of a long day
You've always got that deep down lovin' feelin' in your heart
And the earth can wrap around itself and the distance melt away
When you've got that deep down lovin' feelin' in your heart
