I am a solo writer who is part of a band. I love music more than just about anything and I love hearing my songs start as a few chords or words and take shape into something (I consider) wonderful. Our motto is to never take ourselves too seriously and never forget to have fun. Music is to be enjoyed and I surely do that.

Written By: Sian McMillan

LIMPET LAD, BARNACLE BOY
Intro A, D, A, D, A, E........A,D,A.D,A.E.A

Chorus
A D A D A E A A
‘Limpet lad, barnacle boy, there ain’t no room for you anymore
A D A D A E A
I’m walking out I’m shutting the door, there ain’t no room for you anymore

Verse
E
You hold me tighter than I’ve ever known
A
You got a grip on me like a vice
E
Though the tide’s come in I’m washing you out
A
The waters about to rise
D A E stop
I follow the sun on a daily basis, I need to chase my life

You gotta let go

Chorus

Verse 2
The waters clear now, you’ve done your job
I think I need to hang you out to dry
Close your mouth it ain’t breeding time
You really gotta let this slide
If I have the chance I’ll pry you off
And leave you alone to die
You gotta let go

Lead break, chorus chords

Verse 3
I’m like a sailboat in the breeze
You’re clinging on to my hull
I like to live the higher side
You like the lower side of dull
I scrape you off, you crawl on back
You take advantage of my lull
You gotta let go

Chorus
Repeat first line of chorus for end

Ball and Chain

Written By: Sian McMillan

Verse1
You hold me under, you make it hard to breathe,
You keep asunder, everything that's free.
Chorus
Your like a thorn in my side
You're like a saddle on my back
You keep it short back and sides
You keep it all on the right track
On the right track
Verse2
You're like a freight train
Holdin me on track
My ball and chain
Breaking my back
Chorus
Lead break
You're like a desert
Dryer than the sun
You steal my water
Dam the rivers run
Chorus
You're like a pain in my head
You're like a torture on the rack
You keep the sunshine from me
You keep it all on the right track
On the right track.
