BandCountry

Writer of solid traditional and contemporary Country lyrics. I like to have fun with the lyrics and write about everyday situations. It is a great outlet from day-to-day life in the Army.

Biography

Career soldier/US Army aviator (UH-60 Blackhawk Pilot) with a love for country music and the art of crafting traditional and contemporary country lyrics. My interest in country and bluegrass music has developed since childhood. I've written poetry since the age of 15, and began writing song lyrics shortly after completing college, but have only recently entered a series of lyric writing contests. I want to team with a composer or group of composers/songwriters to develop lyrics into marketable songs. My goal is to become an established lyricist and develop long term agreements with music producers, song publishers and/or recording artists.

Chemistry

CHEMISTRY
Copyright © 2002 by Dwayne Hummel

It’s the way you say I love you
It’s the day we said I do.
It’s the meta-physical attraction that’s a constant ‘tween us two
whether chasing through the house, or racing through the woods
baby we’ve got natural chemistry and that’s real good…

[CHORUS] Molecular attraction, perpetual motion too
there’s no scientific explanation for half the things we do.
It can’t be diluted, cause our bond is strong
we set off a chain reaction that will last a whole life long.
Mix the two of us together…some never thought they should
the result’s natural chemistry and its real good.

We didn’t get it through osmosis…didn’t buy it from a store
don’t need a second opinion…it requires a little more
no equation can explain it, science has misunderstood
cause baby we’ve got natural chemistry and it’s real good.

[Repeat CHORUS]

No laboratory is required…the periodic table is askew
no elements describe the chemistry ‘tween us two.
Multiply it by infinity…then add a little more
it doesn’t really matter…its all been tried before.
Science can’t explain it…never thought it could
cause baby we’ve got natural chemistry and it’s real good…yeah – we’ve got chemistry and it’s real good!

Life is Better
Copyright © 2003 by Dwayne Hummel

Well you say you’re gonna leave and I hope that’s right
cause my poker pals are coming over tonight
and you say when you go that you won’t be back
well move over honey I’ll help you pack

[CHORUS] Life is better without you here
Life is sweeter without you dear
there’s no one following me around
I’m always up without you putting me down
and no one complains if I have a beer
yeah my life is better without you here

Now that you’re out from under my skin
I’m sowing my oats and living again
Out with the guys most every night
when I come home late there’s never a fight

[repeat CHORUS]

[Bridge]

Life is better and there’s no doubt
this has really helped my ego out.
I can lay on the couch and watch TV
don’t have to worry ‘bout you nagging me.
Leave the toilet seat up and I can sleep in
I’m the king of my castle again.
Yeah life is better without you here
Well life is sweeter without you dear…
Yeah my life is better without you here.

What Doing Daddy?

Written By: Dwayne Hummel

What Doing Daddy?
Copyright © 2002 by Dwayne Hummel

A short two years ago he came into my life
what a blessing for me and my wife.
One of life’s true gifts…it was no surprise
he captured my heart with those big blue eyes.
Now each day’s an adventure…each day’s a chore,
each day I love him a little bit more.
Asking me daddy what can this be?
What makes it go…please let me see;
and my favorite words he’ll say
are the ones he uses when he wants to play…

CHORUS: What doing Daddy?...
Let’s play trucks, lets play trains
lets turn on the sprinkler and dance in its rain.
How long will it last?
I hope it won’t pass.
My they sure do grow up fast …What Doing Daddy?

Watching him grow, watching him learn;
practicing manners and taking turns.
He’s got me right in the palm of his hand;
Mommy’s boy…Daddy’s little man.
All of those questions…”Daddy what’s this?”
We’re on a journey that I wouldn’t miss.
If my heart is his target, his aim is just fine
as he looks up and asks me for the one-hundredth time…

[CHORUS]

When he falls down and skins his knee
he’ll come crying, running to me.
I pull him in close and say it’s alright;
Daddy’s got you and holding on tight.
I pray this is how it’ll always be;
if he has a problem he’ll share it with me.
I don’t know exactly how it’ll end,
but I’ll be his father through thick and through thin.

[CHORUS]

She Won't Let Me Have a Truck

Written By: Dwayne Hummel

She Won’t Let Me Have a Truck
Copyright © 2001 by Dwayne Hummel

She kept me waiting for that first kiss
so when we wed I thought I'd found true bliss.
Yeah I was so overcome with glee;
I never considered what might change for me...

[CHORUS] She won't let me have a truck, she won't let me have a Harley Hog, she won't let wear cowboy boots, and drew the line at my ole hound dog. A Stetson hat is never in style; I can't chew and spit a country mile. It's really cramping up my lifestyle...she won't let me have a truck.

I went to work and when I got back home she's standing there with two tickets to Rome.
Says some culture is what I need... thinks I ain’t getting it here in Tennessee.
Says hunt’n and fishing’s no longer in season.
I'd ask why but she'd have a good reason.
If you ask me this is bordering on treason…She won’t let me have a truck.

[CHORUS]

She said my friends have all become passé.
Made me sell my old Chevrolet.
I’m eating tiny meals she calls gourmet.
I never thought it would turn out this way.
Says we can compromise and get an SUV.
It doesn’t look like a truck to me.
She just doesn’t seem to understand;
my whole life I’ve been a pick-up man.

[Repeat CHORUS]
...Yeah, wouldn't you know that it’s just my luck...she won't let me have a truck.

Weekend Rendezvous

Written By: Dwayne Hummel

Weekend Rendezvous
Copyright © 2002 by Dwayne Hummel

Worked hard all week, did my share
don’t know that the boss man really cares.
Care or not, it’s hard to say
and it doesn’t really matter cause it’s Friday!
I’ll punch the clock and fire up my truck;
be home by five with any luck.
My little woman’s waiting there at home
and we can’t wait to get our weekend on…

[CHORUS] Worked hard all week with one thing in mind
how to spend the weekend with that girl of mine.
Yeah, I’m always willing to do my part
But I can’t wait for Friday night to start.
Spent five days thinking ‘bout what we’d do…
Let’s plan a little weekend rendezvous.

Friday night and we’re ready to go;
let’s dance all night at the Do-si-do.
We’re off to the lake on Saturday.
The weather’s looking good, hope it stays that way.
We’ll visit our little secluded strip…
Gonna fish, gonna ski, gonna skinny dip.
Saturday night it’s off to the race;
yeah when I’m with my baby I’m in first place…

[repeat CHORUS]

Sunday morn it’s off to church
a healthy dose of religion never hurts.
My little wife sings like a dove;
thank God for her…thank God for love.
Sunday night with her at home;
can’t believe the weekend’s almost gone.
Good things go by way too fast,
but we’ve done our best to make it last.
Monday morn it’s back to work;
planning for the weekend’s my only perk…

[FINAL CHORUS] I’ll work hard all week with one thing in mind
how to spend the weekend with that girl of mine.
yeah, I’m always willing to do my part
just waiting for Friday night to start.
I’ll spend the work week thinking ‘bout what we’ll do
we’ll have a little weekend rendezvous…yeah we’ll just plan a little weekend rendezvous.
