Biography

I have always been one of those types of players that adhere to "Puttin some drive in your country". But,I also don't think that all country songs should nessacerily be country.Love,Joy,Heart Ache and Loss those emotions are shared by all and that's the stories I tell.Americana,Country Rock is just the tool I use to write them with.If you like Steve Earle,Willie and Waylon,Molly Hatchet,and Lynard Skynard then I am sure you will like what I have to offer.

Verse 1
In the quiet of the country,a shot rings out in town.
Blood is spilled a man is killed,and the people start to gather around.
The sheriff asks the question,did ya see what happened here.
A quiet fell upon the crowd they turned thier backs and disapeared.

Chorus 1
Lord ain't it a shame.
The way people tend to behave.
When it seems like they got it all they go and throw it away.
Lord ain't it a shame.

Verse 2
Later on in the evening,a man's comming home to his wife.
He's tired of all the rumors,so tonight he's gonna set things right.
She swears that it never happened,and swears she's been faithful to him.
He pretends that he believes her,but the proof was on the credit card bill.

Chorus 2
Lord ain't it a shame.
The way people tend to behave
When it seems like they got it all they go and throw it away.
Lord ain't it a shame

Solo(2 verses in length)

Repeat chorus 1
Lord ain't it a shame.
The way people tend to behave.
When it seems like they got it all they go and throw it away.
Lord ain't it a shame.

Verse 3
The next day after breakfast,he heard her stsrt to cry.
Figured it must be the paper or the story that it ran inside.
Local man found murdered,said he been stabbed at least a couple of times
He quietly said that's to bad as he cleaned the stains of of his knife.

Chorus 3
Lord ain't it a shame.
The way people tend to behave

Lord ain't it a shame.
