This warm and pretty day


Well I’m out here
I could tell you
bout a thousand from my home
I could tell you I’ve been troubled
and I’m out here on my own
where the miles keep
the bottles empty
and the worry washed away
but the truth is
what’s the use when
I’m lookin’ out on
a pretty day

and the money
ain’t what it used to
be and many
are feelin’ down
and our dreams are
down the tubes while
there isn’t anyone around
I could tell you
bout the nights
without the lights
just lie awake
but the truth is
what’s the use when
the Lord has made us
a pretty day

I’ll pretend I’m goin’ fishin’
instead of wishin’ I was gone
and my friends you’re always welcome
to pack a bag and come along
we could talk about
the good times
set beside me
wash away
with a cold one
in the sunshine
of this warm and pretty day ©

My love she waits for me

A pain inside this world
where I reside won’t let me be
the grass is high the bee’s are biting
from my head to feet
I go to where my mind unwinds
and hide so I can breathe
I know I’ll be just fine tonight
my love she waits for me

a broken piece of glass beside
the road just cut my toes

a raven circling high swooped by
and pecked holes in my clothes
my guitar strings just broke
and now this super star won’t be
I smile in spite I know tonight
my sweetheart waits for me

you’d think I’d fall apart by now
but still I live the dream
and darlin’ I can’t help but smile
from what she does to me
the days soak through my heart
like sunlight brewing tea
the moon awaits the darkest night
my love she waits for me ©
