Biography

Benji Allen's ten song cd is compromised of songs written by Marshall Hicks. The hands of fate intervened and brought them together, to what we think is the perfect tunes for the perfect voice and style of Benji. Benji Allen has sang at the Jonnie High Review and was wanted as a Tim McGraw impersonator in Branson, Missouri. But he didn't want to be Tim McGraw - he wanted to be himself. And what you'll hear on the upcoming cd is pure country music, and pure Benji Allen.

Lyrics

Mother Nature, A Cold One And Me

Written By: Marshall Hicks (words/music)

MOTHER NATURE, A COLD ONE AND ME

Sitting on a pier with a long neck of beer
That cool breeze blowing through my hair
Watching the cork as it jumps back and forth
That minnow, he’s trying to get somewhere
And the blue tick hound
Lord he’s busy making rounds
Giving little drinks to all the trees
I love the easy going ways of these summer country days
Mother Nature, A Cold One And Me

CHORUS
Mother nature, a cold one and me
A synchronized three part harmony-y-y
Like a turtle in a shell, Lord we fit together well
Seems like it was always meant to be
Mother Nature, A Cold One And Me

Lounging on the deck petting the pretty neck
Of the bottle that holds the amber fluid
Feeling not a pain as crickets serenade
Fiddling their hearts out in the woods
And while Buffett sings a notion
‘Bout mother, mother ocean
I close my eyes and hear the sea
I love the starry sounds and sights of these summer country nights
Mother Nature, A Cold One And Me

REPEAT CHORUS

This Bud's For You

Written By: Marshall Hicks (words/music)

THIS BUD’S FOR YOU

That TV commercial says
This Bud’s For You
And they show ya all the good fun things
That ol’ bud can do
Everybody’s smilin’, the party’s in full swing
But they fail to show, the watchin’ folk
What else their bud’ll bring

CHORUS I
They never show the handcuffs
Or those little holdin’ cells
And you’ll never hear ‘em telling’ you
Of how puke looks and smells
Nobody’s got a black eye
Nobody sings the blues
So be careful bud, when ya hear
This Bud’s For You

Well I’ve been known to sip some
And I know firsthand
The costly consequences
Of that buddy in a can
It ain’t always good times, like the TV portrays
‘Cause they don’t include, the red and blues
And that copper in your face

CHORUS II
They never show the food trays
Served up in county jails
And you’ll never hear ‘em braggin’ ‘bout
The sky high price of bail
Nobody’s in a courtroom wearin’
Funny orange jumpsuits
So be careful bud, when ya hear
This Bud’s For You

INSTRUMENTAL

REPEAT CHORUS I
