Biography

Newfoundland and Labrador’s own Gerald Butler has returned home. After entertaining and travelling across Canada for 14 years, the tried and true Newfoundlander has gone back to his roots and his native soil.

From his self-titled debut album, “SOMETHINGS CHANGED BETWEEN US”, Butlers first three singles“Done me, did me wrong”, “Somethings changed between us” and ,“My heart just hit the floor” all charted in Atlantic Canada and in Ottawa. Now finished his new CD called, “The Butler... Did It”. Gerald is poised for success with his rich vocals,
unique guitar stylings and dynamic stage presence.

With his own unique blend of New Country and Rockabilly, Gerald has earned top notch reviews and a dedicated fan-base. Gerald has spent the past two years writing and co-writing songs with a number of different writers from Canada and
creating some truly timeless pieces for his new album.

The first single, “Forever is as long as I’ll stay” is written with Gerald’s passionate vocals and haunting solo work.

“I’ve finally figured out who I am as an artist”, says Butler of the new album. “I’m returning to my roots, both in coming home to Newfoundland and in my music, which has a much more individual sound now. I think it captures who I am so much more than my first CD.”

Finally back home in the place where he feels he truly belongs, Butler hopes to continue in the tradition of passionate, insightful, Country songwriting that has been a mainstay of Canada’s East Coast and an inspiration to Gerald Butler.

Gerald is currently preparing his tour to support his new CD.

Done Me Did Me Wrong

Written By: Gerald Butler

DONE ME WRONG

Lyrics and music by Gerald Butler copyright 2001

I done got up on the wrong side of bed this morning
I’d been dreaming about the way you’d done me wrong
And you know there ain’t no room for forgiveness
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong

Now if you think I’m a’gonna take it easy
Sit around here and pout the whole night long
Well let me tell you that you are mistaken
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong

CHORUS
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong
Well you knocked me down but I won’t be down for long
Now I’m leaving you - there’s nothing you can do
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong

GUITAR BREAK

The fact is that you didn’t really love me
Now I know the love I had is gone
And you know there ain’t no second chance now baby
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong

So if someone ever turns the table on you
Or if someone ever tries to lead you on
Then you’ll know just what it is I’ve been through
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong

CHORUS
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong
Well you knocked me down but I won’t be down for long
Now I’m leaving you - there’s nothing you can do
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong

TAG
Now I’m leaving you – there’s nothing you can do
You done me, did me, did me, done me wrong

Kentucky Moon

Written By: Gerald Butler

KENTUCKY MOON

CHORUS
Kentucky moon - shine so bright
Shine your light down on these lonesome tears I cry
Kentucky moon - hear my call
‘Cause I can’t seem to shake - her memory at all

My nights are so lonely – when there’s no one around
Ah come on now stay – please don’t let me down

CHORUS
Kentucky moon - shine so bright
Shine your light down on - these lonesome tears I cry
Kentucky moon - hear my call
‘Cause I can’t seem to shake her memory at all

GUITAR BREAK

I’m so lost without you - you have broken my heart
And these tears keep fallin’ and I don’t know where to start

CHORUS
Kentucky moon - shine so bright
Shine your light down on - these lonesome tears I cry
Kentucky moon - hear my call
‘Cause I can’t seem to shake - her memory at all

TAG
No I can’t seem to shake her memory at all

Somethings Changed Between Us

Written By: Gerald Butler

SOMETHING’S CHANGED

Lyrics and music by Gerald Butler copyright 2001

Give me something to believe in
Give me something I can see
‘Cause you know that it would hurt me
To see you up and leave

Give me something to hold on to
Give me something that is real
‘Cause I’d love to know you need me
Give me something I can feel

CHORUS
Something’s changed between us
I don’t know what it is
Won’t you just sit down and tell me
Exactly what it is I’ve missed

GUITAR BREAK & MODULATION

TURN AROUND
Remember when you used to hold me
Instead of letting go
I can even say I’m sorry
But I just can’t go

Give me something to remember
Give me something to forget
‘cause I need to know the answer
But I’m afraid of what I’ll get

CHORUS
Something’s changed between us
I don’t know what it is
Just sit down and tell me
Exactly what it is I’ve missed

TAG
Won’t you just sit down and tell me
Exactly what it is I’ve missed
