Lyrics from My Upcoming Album

The first road trip of the summer has come to a close.   One thing that must happen on a road trip is sampling local radio stations.  Through one leg of our trip through very sparsely populated regions of the upper mid-west, we found 16 radio stations that came in without static.  Of those, nine were country stations.  Four were religious stations, two were public radio and one pop station filled the airwaves.  This is a lot of country music to take in.  I’m not really a country music listener, but after spending a weekend with the car radio’s ‘scan’ feature picking up thirty second bits of country songs, I am excited to soon drop my own country record.

Here now, the lyrics of track one, tentatively titled “Friday Night”.

(verse 1

Sitting on the back porch

It’s Friday night

Only sittin’ ’round till the feelings right

Then we kick it off. Yeah we kick this off.

(Boom. chorus time)

In our

blue jeans

Hugging us so tight

Drinking

Cheap beers

Cause the price was right

Watching

Old friends

Under full moonlight.

All on a Friday night

(Verse 2 following some guitar interlude)

As we watch this town get bigger and better

I can’t help feel that we’re all that matters

Cause if there’s one thing that I know

Is that one time I saw I UFO

(Chorus time again!)

In our

blue jeans

Hugging us so tight

Drinking

Cheap beers

Cause the price was right

Watching

Old friends

Under full moonlight.

All on a Friday night

 

Taken up high by an alien guy

It was Sasquatch, I’ll swear til I die

Bigfoot asked if we’re ready to go?

I said, not yeti let’s take it slow.

(CHORUS UP IN THIS ONCE AGAIN!)

In our

blue jeans

Hugging us so tight

Drinking

Cheap beers

Cause the price was right

Watching

Old friends

Under full moonlight.

All on a Friday night

(verse)

Making back to solid ground

Bigfoot walked, didn’t make a sound

Took us to the party we showed him the town

Couldn’t get enough, so we walked around

(IT’S CHORUS TIME!)

Then the chorus like 6 more times.  Three guitar solos and, time permitting, a trumpet breakdown and a guest vocal. The album drops next May.*

 

*It doesn’t.

 

Thanks for reading!
