Biography

The latest CD from September 2006 "Change from a Penny" hit #28 and stayed on the independent radio charts for 16 weeks! The songwriting is unstoppable.

Sharing the stage with artists from Mississippi Heat to Joan Jett, to Spanky McFarland, South Side Cindy and the band is from Peoria, Illinois “where The Blues was not born” but they have been a major influence to make it what it is today. Cindy has a smooth and dominating voice that can reach inside you to sooth your personal spirits or instantly raise an audience to the edge of the stage to soak in her energy.

This song title and disc name comes from that kind gentleman who taught Cindy & Steve to play craps in Las Vegas. Yes, right after everyone stacks there money around the table and then Cindy rolled a 7. He said, "Don't that just make you feel like change from a penny?"

hmmm. time to write another song. . .

Lyrics

Change from a Penny

Written By: Cindy Youngren (words) & Steve Youngren (music)

For goodness sake,
Why do you make
Me feel like change from a penny
When I ain't done any
thing wrong but love you.

You took me where
I didn't wanna go.
You taught me things I did not want to know.
I played along
to be what you wanted me to be,
But now I've changed so much
I guess you don't like me.

For goodness sake,
Why do you make
Me feel like change from a penny
When I ain't done any
thing wrong but love you.

Lead

You made me think
I wasn't good enough.
You used to call me a diamond
in the rough.
But now your cuttin' and polishin' is
almost through,
I guess I changed so much that I
don't like you.

Chorus
Lead

And when you got rid of everything
that wasn't like you
You wondered "Where is that
sweet little, girl I knew?"

Chorus

Fo wo wo goodness sake
Fo wo wo goodness sake
Fo wo wo goodness sake
Why do you make me feel like
change from a penny? uh.

Peace In This World

Written By: Cindy Youngren

I need some peace in this world
Somebody tell me how to find it
I been from dirt floors to diamonds
And a whole lot more
But with all my bad livin
I'll be back to dirt floors
Somebody got to tell me
How to find some peace in this world.

Well you can fill up the night club
And sell out the gin
But the bar man don't call you
You still got to call him

I need some peace in this world . . .
