Biography

A Generous Blend of Country & Folk with a touch of Classic Rock & a smidge of Comedy My BIO: The youngest of 5 children, Moyralyn grew up on a small farm near in Central Ontario, Canada, listening to her father play guitar in a local country band. Her older brother taught guitar and was the lead guitarist in her home town's only rock band. Although her musical roots go back to childhood, Moyralyn was a "late bloomer" and only began playing guitar in 1980, after the birth of her third daughter. Separated in '82 & divorced from her second husband by 1985, she wrote her first country song a year later and has written many more since. She began performing in 1988, taking her chances at "open mic" nights at local bars. In 1992 she graduated to larger venues playing at the Niagara Regional Exhibition, which became a lucrative annual affair, leading to performances at Canada Day events and Fairs throughout Niagara Region. In 1994 she was approached by the Fonthill Kinsmen to help get a sixty's style Coffee House off the ground. A venue that gained her distinction and a small following in the region. As a result, she was elected for a two year term as Secretary/Treasurer for the Board of Directors of the Kinsmen Coffee House. Subsequently, she stepped down, in 1996 when time became a problem after creating Three IV Arizona Publishing, to publish her own music as well as launch a monthly music publication, "The Coffee House News," devoted to interviews with local musicians and promoting the Kinsmen Coffee House. Being a single parent since 1982, Moyralyn established herself as a painting & tiling contractor to support her three daughters, now grown with families of their own. She relocated to Sarnia in February 1999, re-established her painting business and joined the Sarnia Lambton Musician's Club. In June of 2003 she moved to Fulton, Michigan to get married. Her husband retired and in 2006 they moved to Meadville, PA. In her "spare time she opened Crazy Canuck Painting in Meadville & is looking for local venues. Moyralyn aka Moey is a member of BMI. 2007

Lyrics

Snow On The Roof

Written By: Moyralyn J. Stephens-Radabaugh

SNOW ON THE ROOF
Verse 1
SO, YOU SAY I’M GETTIN’ OLD, AND MY HAIR IS GOIN’ GRAY,
AND THE LINES AROUND MY EYES, ARE GETTIN’ DEEPER EVERY DAY,
THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE, WERE SPENT GIVIN’ YOU YOUR WAY,
WELL DARLIN’, THIS IS ALL I’VE GOT TO SAY........

CHORUS:
JUST CAUSE THERE’S SNOW ON THE ROOF,
DON’T MEAN NO FIRE’S IN THE FURNACE
DON’T TELL ME I DON’T “CUT IT” ANYMORE
JUST CAUSE THERE’S SNOW ON THE ROOF
DON’T MEAN NO FIRE’S IN THE FURNACE
MAY BE OLD, BUT I AIN’T NO DINOSAUR

Verse 2
THE TIMES I USED TO THRILL YOU, YOU COULDN’T GET ENOUGH,
LATE NIGHTS, EARLY MORNIN’S, GOIN’ TO WORK WAS PRETTY ROUGH
I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKIN’, BUT IT’S TIME SOMEONE GOT TOUGH,
SO REMEMBER, WHILE YOU’RE PACKIN’ UP YOUR STUFF..........

CHORUS:

Verse 3
I’VE HAD IT WITH YOUR “PUT-ME-DOWNS”, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE,
IT’S GOOD-BYE, SO LONG, ARRIVA DERCHI, AU REVOIR,
HERE’S YOUR HAT, WHAT’S YOUR HURRY? I’M ENDING THIS HERE “WAR,”
SO DARLIN’, LOOKEE HERE, THERE’S THE DOOR

CHORUS:
