Biography

When it comes to speaking her mind,  there's no beating around the bush with Reed Ferguson.  No, Reed takes to her guitar and clever lyrics to lay you out on the mat, sweetly and unassumingly.  From her 17 year old shyness comes a refreshing honesty and integrity devoid of pretense.  Like a softly swung sucker punch she leaves you flat out IN LOVE, not only with her music but with the quiet strength that IS Reed.


Lyrics

Wide Eyed Little Sly Guy

Written By: Reed Ferguson

Sly Guy
By: Reed Ferguson

Verse 1:
You keep your options open and want everythin’ to end, you look at other girls with their cute sunglasses and trends
You know I see it in ya but ignore it everyday, someday I will show them all just the cheat you are
You ask why you’re cheat, but I’ll tell you yet again, you act like your so perfect but your headin’ for dead ends
Gonna end up alone, no friends nowhere to go, cause by then you’ve cheated them out of their money, house, and car

Chorus:
You’re a dirty, rotten, no good, lying, cheating, stealing, jerk of a guy
You’re a jerky, nothing, no good, whining, goin’ nowhere, just say goodbye
You used me as bait so now you can wait
So I’ll say goodbye,
to you wide-eyed little sly guy

Verse 2:
You’ve kept your options opened and want to forget ‘bout me, you’ve looked at other girls and found the one that fits your needs
But the one you’re lookin’ at, she’s a dirty rotten girl, and when the day comes around when you want me too
You will then come to me, you’ll be beggin’ on your knees, mark my words, I will not turn around, not for you, for me
‘Cause I won’t forgive you, for all the things you do, cause I am not like those other girls, I’m way too good for you

Bridge:
And that girl ya looked at, she will run for the road
And you’ll come runnin’ to me and you’ll want me back
But I won’t take ya, I don’t love ya
I don’t want ya

Chorus (x2)

One Way Road Back Home (original)

Written By: Reed Ferguson

One Way Road Back Home
written by: Reed Ferguson

Verse 1:
Traveled a long way to find my way back home
Roads blocked with obstacles like sticks and stones
Stop signs and traffic lights blinded the way I see
The home I once knew was not left in me

Chorus:
There’s mountains to climb and dirt roads to travel
Oceans to sail and ties to unravel
There’s rivers to cross and valleys to roam
But it’s a one way road back home

Verse 2:
Lost along the road, no maps to guide your way
Stuck in the prairies in the middle of the day
But day turns into night, you’re lost and all alone
Nothing to turn to ‘cept that broken road

Chorus

Instrumental

Bridge:
No matter how far you stray
You’ll always end up back in the same old place
If there’s one path you’ll always know
It’s that one way road back home

Chorus (x2)

Fortune and Fame (original)

Written By: Reed Ferguson and Peggy Still Johnson

Fortune and Fame
written by: Reed Ferguson and Peggy Still Johnson

Verse 1:
This life is not what you thought it’d be now
You thought you’d be something big by now
Stuck at some rinky dink cafe in L.A.
Waiting for a record deal to come to your way

Chorus:
We all wanna be hot shot rockstars
And rock out on our Fender Stratocaster guitars
Pretend we’re so cool with our made up names
We all chase fortune and fame

Ride to the Grammy’s in a limousine
And be on the cover of a magazine
Pretend we’re so cool with our made up names
We all chase fortune and fame

Verse 2:
Your house will be what they call a mansion
Dress so hot in the latest fashion
You’ll sign a few autographs then go back
To your life of luxury when you sign that deal, that’s that

Chorus

Bridge:
Lindsay Lohan, Demi Moore, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen
Macauley Culkin, Amy Winehouse, Randy Travis, Michael Jackson
Marilyn Monroe, Brittany and Jamie Lynn
Miley Cyrus, Whitney Houston

Chorus

1922 (original)

Written By: Reed Ferguson

1922
Copyright 2013 by Reed Ferguson

Verse 1:

Flashback it through time to nineteen twenty two
He used to be a poor boy
But when he met her, he fell head over heels
And not once did he feel like
He could ever ever ever look back

Chorus:

So he got his money and silver and gold
In return for that something he sold
Just like he sold his soul to the devil
In return for his one true girl
Flappers in style, sleazy deals and fights
He’d been long chasing that green light
Gave him feelings that he don’t wanna lose
It's 1922

Verse 2:

Flash forward to the summer of the green light
But now he was a rich man
But she had moved on to her riches and greed
Big and better things
But he would never ever ever give up

Bridge:

How’d he get the money?
I heard he killed a man
How’d he get the money?
Is he really there?

And they all wonder and they all care
Why’d he get the money?
Where’d he get the money?
How’d he get the money?
Who gave him the money?

Chorus x2

Remember

Written By: Reed Ferguson, Emily Haber

Remember
Copyright 2014 by Reed Ferguson and Emily Haber

Verse 1:

Met you on Fourth of May, I remember

Bright blue skies, a perfect day, I remember

At eight years old, your heart was gold

I knew I’d hold your hand

I remember


Chorus:

I remember

Our little kid fun

Singing that Beatles song “Here Comes the Sun”

And I know our love is made up of these songs

As long as they play on and on

We’ll keep writing letters

I remember


Verse 2:

Your daddy’s tie and dressed up shoes, I remember

Heels that hurt and my dress brand new, I remember

At seventeen, you looked at me

And like a dream, we danced

I remember


Chorus:

I remember

Dancing in the rain

To James Taylor “Sing Me Sweet Baby James”

And I know our love is made up of these songs

As long as they play on and on

We’ll keep writing letters
G
I remember


Verse 3:

Those letters that we once wrote, do you remember?

Sometimes left me post-it notes, don’t you remember?

Yesterday, found one I’d saved

And your words made me smile

And it said


Chorus:

I remember

When we said our vows

Like that Taylor song when the preacher said “speak now”

And I know our love is made up of these songs

As long as they play on and on

I’ll remember

When we walked down the aisle

Played a song or two and then we said I do

And I know our love is made up of these songs

And they keep playing on and on

We’ll always write those letters

I remember

Do you remember

‘Cause I remember

I’ll love you forever more

Just like the Beatles said, even “when we’re sixty four”
