songs you can't get out of your head, get you out of bed, crank up and sing with, dancin in the streets.

Biography

Write and perform songs that I hope make people find their groove, think, change, and act. Musician's shadings are deep--more than we can know, much less show with any true intention. We've been low sparks, lost in rock formations, turned our backs on sugar mountain, been tired of sitting, chased the freebird, rock and rolled like animals, been the boxer, looked for the yellow brick road, and a love supreme. But in the end and the ongoing...we're all born to run 'cos that's what it is--changes along your own hiway 61.

Children of War

World at war again…Children play
Opened that sore again…what can we say
World at war again…Let the children play
Even the score if you can…Have you hugged your kid today
World at war again…I’m down on my knees
Can you hear me prayin lord…someone help me please

I’m a desperate boy and you don’t know how many many tears I’ve cried
But I wouldn’t want to drown anybody so I’m cryin deep inside
To soak the rage that burns for those who lied
When they said that there’d be Peace in my day
Hey—I don’t see that we’ve tried

World at war again…Children play
I wanna be your friend…no matter what they say
World at war again…stop complaining…it’s always been this way
World at war again…Let the children play
You want salvation…How much can you pay

I’m a desperate boy and though I’m young this gun is not a toy
And I’m surely gonna waste somebody if I don’t get what I want
I want an explanation when I walk into that station--everybody hits the dirt
Tell me why do I feel this way…so nobody gets hurt

It don’t matter whose side you’re on…It don’t matter whose right or wrong
You’ve got to keep what you carry…You gotta do what’s necessary
World at war again…Children play
Open that sore again…what can we say
World at war again…Children play
Even the score if you can…have you hugged your kid today
World at war again…Let the children play
