Biography

Some people have described us as being like Steely
Dan...If so, then I think we're more Steely than Dan,
at least in my mind. There is thought that goes into
my lyrics and there is purpose with each song but
there is an effort to make each song sound different
from the others. I am different.
A denizen of 5 decades of being a student of Rock
n' Roll. Using guitars as the keystone of my music,
I draw upon my half-century of guitar obsessions
to inspire my song-writing, arranging, and
performing. I am self-produced, self-financed,
self-promoted, and self-driven to place his music
before the public.
It's like nothing you ever heard before.

Lyrics

This Ain't No Partnership

Written By: E.D. Ward

Prices rise, incomes dry
People try ? to live another day

Don?t get sick, buck a tick
Doctors pick your pocket everyway

Lawyers try ? to be sly
On both sides ? they win either way

They make laws, They make rules
Well, who?s the fools ? we or they

This ain?t no, This ain?t no, This ain?t no
This ain?t No Partnership (4X)

George?s kind, seems so blind
To the lives of jobless men

Trickle down, but what is found?
Nothing round from George?s friends

Break the trades, minimum wage
Factory salves to enrich a few

Bourgeois ? in their greed,
Plant the seed to ensure their coup


CHORUS

To the wall, one and all
Stand or Fall, with some Dignity

Law is fine ? but do you mind
If I sign on for Liberty

T.V. Scripts, Made-up lips
Missile tips ? hanging on Finger tips

What?s your name, mine?s the same
In this shame called partnership


CHORUS

Run 4 Cover

Written By: E.D. Ward

You can?t tell me about the war
What I don?t know, I?ve heard before
Save your money for what it?s worth
Invest in Wall Street or your Local Church

Run for cover, you got to run, run, run for cover
Run for cover, you got to run, run, run for cover

CNN or Quija Board
What to believe, I can?t be sure
Washington is such a WonderLand
Makes me Wonder just where I?ll land

CHORUS

This old world is getting small
You take a turn, You find a wall
Friend or Foe, We screw them All
Pride goeth before the fall

CHORUS

No Free Ride

Written By: E.D. Ward

Ah Marie, your Godfather
Just gave me five dollars
He say, ?Take your body (take your body)
Right out that door.?
Ah Marie, I ain?t gonna see you no more
Won?t see you no more

SpeedLine, gets you where you?re going
In ?bout half the time
Watch Out! (watch out) that
Engineer is blind
SpeedLine sure ain?t no Free Ride (3X)


Cause it?s No Free Ride
On that EveryDay Line
You got to make-up your Mind
You got to walk sometimes
It?s No Free Ride
On that Every Day Line
You got to make-up your Mind
I say make-up your Mind
You got to make-up your Mind
You got to walk some times

Big Change from a little dollar
Well, it makes no cents (sense?)
To beat your head (beat your head)
Against that wall
Big Change don?t cushion the Fall (3X)

CHORUS

Ah Marie, your Godfather
Just gave me five dollars
He say, ?Take your body (take your body)
Right out that door.?
Ah Marie, I ain?t gonna see you no more
Won?t see you no more
Ah Marie, I ain?t gonna see you no more
Ah Marie, I ain?t gonna see you no more
Ah Marie, I ain?t gonna see you no more

Gospel Truth

Written By: E.D. Ward

After the first day, they say man was alone
with the flowers and the beasts, and the sun and the moon
Well, he laid to rest with the lamb and the lion
He had everything he needed but his soul was a'cryin'

He said "Oh Lord, what's troubling me
I've got the beasts of the forest and the fruits from the trees
He said, "Oh Lord, what's holding me down"
From peace of mind I can't seem to find

So the Lord laid some sleep on the weary man's head
And thought awhile on what the man had said
He thought of himself and how He loved man as a friend
And saw the wisdom of creating woman

Cause it's hard, so hard to live alone (repeat)

And the man arose and saw what God had wrought
He felt fire and warmth and a spark in his heart
He said, "Oh Lord, can I be deceived
By this loviness in the image of me

On the first day the earth was made
Then the moon and all the stars
But on the day that woman was made
He gave to man his heart (repeat)

Watch Out! Beware!

Written By: E.D. Ward

You got to draw the right conclusion
Come to a final solution
You gotta slow your brain
Cause you're going insane, oh boy
You know that girl really had my number
I never looked so dumber
I got to take care
I better beware
I got to.....

Watch Out! Beware! That girl is there (3x)

You know she hooked her little finger
Then gave me a look that lingered
I got to slow this pace
Cause her pretty face is staying behind
You know that girl really had my number
I never looked so dumber
I got to take care
I better beware
I got to.....

Watch Out! Beware! That girl is there (3x)

You know we'll have a celebration
When we get our liberation
And that girl is gone
And we're feeling strong, oh boy
You know that girl really had my number
I never looked so dumber
I got to take care
I better beware
I got to.....

Watch Out! Beware! That girl is there (3x)
