While watching his grandmother and sister one Christmas playing piano and entertaining the family, he found what he was looking for, Music! The music was it. Got a banjo for Christmas and started to play. Wrote one song called “you can’t play the blues on a banjo” .Went to see Neil Young Play in Manhattan and got a guitar the next week. Traveled the country writing songs, playing in the street for change and anywhere else he could find work.Finnally in San Francisco formed the Jeff Jolly Band and released his first cd called “The Runner”.

Momma Said
Jeff Jolly 1995BMI

Momma said keep on moving
Keep those dreams in your head
Momma said keep on moving
Keep those dreams burning in your head
Only thing that will keep you going till your dead

Don’t hitch on no ones ride
Stay on a path of your own
Don’t hitch on no ones ride
Stay on a path of all your own
No matter where life will lead you
It will take you home

Get yourself a good woman
Keep her by your side
Get yourself a good woman
Keep her right there by your side
No matter what brings you down
She’ll keep you satisfied

Momma said keep on moving
Keep those dreams in your head
Momma said keep on moving
Keep those dreams burning in your head
No matter where life will lead you
It will bring you home

What's this World

Written By: Jeff Jolly

What’s this World

I stepped aboard a plane
Things just ain’t the same
I’m looking at every face
It’s a goddamn shame
I feel this way

I stumble through the aisle
Static in the carpet
Fear bigger than the pain
And I can’t stop it
I’m on edge

What’s this World
We’re on
I thought progression meant advancing
Look how far we’ve gone

I’m walking through Manhattan
Like a scene from World War 2
I’m smiling of the good times
I remember standing next to you
I miss your smile

I’m driving in my car
I can’t stay on the road
Visions of humanity
Radiator is blowing cold
Is this really necessary

I hope something good comes from this
I heard somebody say
I can’t believe I’m hearing it
Who thought there’d be a day

Does it take a face appearing on the sky
With hands raised in grace to stop and wonder why
Jesus Christ

Be With you

Written By: Jeff Jolly


Be With You
Jeff Jolly (Boff Music)©2000

I’m sitting here with my baby
She’s laughing something in my ear
She’s telling me stories of a long time ago
Struck her funny
People tell me hard luck stories
I just can’t help to feel lucky
Just to be with you

Her little daughter says I wanna tell you a secret
Come over here little darling’ and tell me what’s on your mind
A voice so delicate and so clear
She whispers softly in my ear
She says I love you

I’m walking’ down that road her hand in mine
And right next to her is another little hand in hers
People tell me hard luck stories
I just can’t help to feel lucky
Just to be with you
