BandCountryBluegrass

The sound is today's "Newgrass/Alt. Country" ala Pat Green, The Dirt Band, Jack Ingram. The players are all veteran musicians, professional and articulate in their approach. We're a bit edgy, while maintaining that country feel. Listen to the MP3 at www.daleeverett.com

Lyrics

Wonderful Life

Written By: Dale Everett

Wonderful Life © by Dale Selch 2003-BMI Silverheart Publishing. All Rights Reserved

V.1.

It’s a wonderful life
For I am truly blessed
Got the world as my canvas
And I’m painting it with memory
Run the fields in the Heartland
Use the Rockies as my pillow
And dream about the times that have past

Chorus:

And racing with the wind
Down these tracks to tomorrow
Got no reason to believe that things
Are ever gonna change
I am free as the snow
To fall then melt at will
And leave no trace of me

It’s a wonderful life
It’s a wonderful life

V.2.

Seen the yards at St. Louis
And the camps in High Sierra
Been branded by the summer sun
In southern California
Anywhere I roam
Is the place that I call home
The dusty fields of Kansas
And barn of new mown hay

Chorus:

SOLO

Chorus:

Simple South

V.1.

I been seekin’ work here throughout this simple southland
But the times ain’t what they used to be, and the cotton’s all but gone
I’m an honest workman and live by honest labor
The work for which I’m able just gets harder day by and by

Chorus:

Spare me a quarter sir
I’ll hop a southern freight train
For Tupelo or Montgomery…

V.2.

I was born in 1940, just outside of Mobile
Where the Alabama River meets the Gulf of Mexico
In tenant farmers quarters tended only by my Daddy
My Mother bore me there, I’m number seven in the line

Chorus:

Solo:

V.3.

Steel rails sang and clattered when the old Great Southern ran
Now the boxcars and the lightening bugs are very seldom seen
In the land where I been travelin’ seekin’ shelter and some warmth
The place I am accustomed to, the very Simple South
