I write my lyrics from the heart, usually about love and relationships, and how I think love works and how it'supposed to be. Becoming a professional lyricist is my dream and I would do anything to make that dream a reality.. All I'm asking for is a chance and the right opportunity. Thanks

Biography

I am a country music lyricist, I live in Worcester, Massachusetts and I've been writing for a little more than a year now. I think my writing has come along way since then. I'm just looking for the right opportunity to get my name and work out there for artists and people in the music industry to see. I hope you like my work and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or any feedback for me. Thanks again

Lyrics

Flower In Your Hair

Written By: Joe Nelson

Now you’re the type of girl that’s right for me
You make me laugh and you’re so pretty
I don’t know what I’d do without you in my life
When I first caught a glimpse of your pretty face
It felt like I was floating into space
I just wanna be right here with you tonight

The only thing I need to do
Is help you see my love is true

I wanna walk with you down an old dirt path
Help this love grow so I’ll know it lasts
And look at you with a flower in your hair
I wanna take your hand and watch the sun sink
I want you to say yes when I pull out this ring
You look beautiful tonight in the summer air
With a flower in your hair

Now I was working on the farm rolling up the hay
Just trying to put a good finish to my day
When there was something I saw that made me stop and stare
It was a beautiful girl picking wild berries
Staying cool in the shade underneath the trees
It was you with a flower in your hair

And I just wanted to stop and say right there

I wanna walk with you down an old dirt path
Help this love grow so I’ll know it lasts
And look at you with a flower in your hair
I wanna take your hand and watch the sun sink
I want you to say yes when I pull out this ring
You look beautiful tonight in the summer air
With a flower in your hair
Flower in your hair

And I don’t know why it always makes me stare
Every time there’s a flower in your hair
I hope you see, just what you mean to me
And I hope you know, I’ll never let you go

And I wanna walk with you down an old dirt path
Help this love grow so I’ll know it lasts
And look at you with a flower in your hair
I wanna take your hand and watch the sun sink
I want you to say yes when I pull out this ring
You look beautiful tonight in the summer air
With a flower in your hair

Heart In Nashville

Written By: Joe Nelson

Well I was seventeen living free and wild
I couldn’t help but stare when I saw her smile
She had everything I ever wanted in a girl
Every time I saw her she made my head swirl

And that girl had a hold on me
But then I had to watch her leave
She went away to college and left me far behind
Well I’m gonna’ keep my heart in Nashville this time

And I’m gonna’ have a drink at the local saloon
Tap my foot to an old country tune
And think about the days where she was mine
Yeah I’m gonna’ keep my heart in Nashville this time

Well I saw a girl singing up on the stage
She had a hell of a voice and man she could play
She had long brown hair and bright blue eyes
She was 5 foot 5 and quite the prize

Well that girl had a hold on me
And I didn’t want to watch her leave
So I went up and asked her if she would be mine
Because I wanna’ keep my heart in Nashville this time

And I’m gonna’ have a drink at the local saloon
Tap my foot to an old country tune
And dream about that girl and her bright blue eyes tonight
Yeah I’m gonna’ keep my heart in Nashville this time

Well we all have a moment that somehow changed our lives
Meeting that girl on the stage just might be mine

Well I married that girl with the bright blue eyes
We’re gonna’ be together for the rest of our lives
We’re gonna’ raise a family and have a nice home
And I’m never gonna’ leave that girl alone

Because that girl has a hold on me
And I know she’s never gonna’ leave
Well we still have many mountains left to climb
And my heart’s gonna’ stay here in Nashville this time

And I’m gonna have a drink at the local saloon
Tap my foot to an old country tune
And thank the lord above that she is mine
Well my hearts gonna stay here in Nashville this time
Yeah I’m gonna stay here in Nashville this time

I Can Be Your Man

Written By: Joe Nelson

Well I don’t have much to give you
All I have is just three things
I got a beat up old blue chevy
A good heart and a ring
So if you wanna give me just one chance
I can be your man

I wanna wake up by your side
In the early morning sun
We could walk down to the river
I’m sure we’d have a lot of fun
Girl I would love you more than anyone else can
I can be your man

And I’ll walk you into the sunset
When it’s sinking at dawn
I can hold you till’ we fall asleep
Or love you all night long
I’ll be there when you’re feeling down
And when you need a hand to hold
And I hope you know you’ll never be left out in the cold
I can be your man

I don’t need a lot of things it’s true
But what I do need is you
You’re the girl that I’ve been dreaming ‘bout
And I’m not sure what else there is to do
You’re the final piece that fits my master plan
I wanna be your man

And I’ll walk you into the sunset
When it’s sinking at dawn
I can hold you till’ we fall asleep
Or love you all night long
I’ll be there when you’re feeling down
And when you need a hand to hold
And I hope you know you’ll never be left out in the cold
I can be your man

Roll With Me Tonight

Written By: Joe Nelson

We started the night off with a walk on the sand
You cracked a smile as I took your hand
When I asked you what’s so funny you started to blush
I just smiled and said there aint no rush
We’ve got all night to get the feeling right
It’s getting cold out here baby let’s head inside

And if you wanna roll with me tonight
Baby the stars are aligned just right
There aint nothing wrong everything’s just fine
Now wont you come and roll with me tonight

One more drink wont hurt anyone
We’re both lonely and in need of some fun
Two shots of tequila in the fading summer sun
Let’s take these feelings and baby let’s run
Into the night with no regrets in sight
Gonna be wild so baby hold on tight

And if you wanna roll with me tonight
Baby the stars are aligned just right
There aint nothing wrong everything’s just fine
Let’s stop all this resisting, let these feelings collide
And we can take a chance on love if it’s right
Come on baby and roll with me tonight

You looked at me with those pretty brown eyes
I saw your beauty you’ve been trying to hide
You took my heart and you let me inside
We headed upstairs and told the world goodnight

And if you wanna roll with me tonight
Baby the stars are aligned just right
The sky is crystal clear with the moon shinning bright
I feel so free when I’m holding you tight
I’m casting out a line and I’m waiting for a bite
Now wont you baby just roll with me tonight
