about

As implied by the title, these are songs I've written with other writers/musicians. All instruments/vocals by me except on Tired Of Your Games (on which I play zero instruments), Down To Earth (on which I also play zero instruments AND sing zero background vocals) and You Lost Me At Veiny (on which every thing is me except for Duane's vocal interjections near the end).

Track Name: I Don't Need Good Lovin' That Bad (with David Graham and Vaughn Daniel)
You're always tellin' me what to do,
What to say, how to think, when to move
Well, let me just say this about that,
I don't need good lovin' that bad.

You always want to run the show,
But there's something you oughta know
Girl, my love is slippin' through your hands
I don't need good lovin' that bad.

I don't need good lovin' that bad,
I don't need good lovin' that bad,
You might be the best lover that I've ever had
You might be the best lover that I've ever had
But I don't need good lovin' that bad.

you're always trying to rock my boat
push me and pull me till I want to let go
That's how love can make a man go mad
I don't need good lovin' that bad

you always treat me like I'm blind
don't want to give me any more of your time
You're always looking for your next man
I don't need good lovin' that bad

I don't need good lovin' that bad,
I don't need good lovin' that bad,
You might be the best lover that I've ever had
You might be the best lover that I've ever had
But I don't need good lovin' that bad.

I don't need it, don't see it
but baby, you better believe it
There's a better woman waiting out there for me
that's why I'm setting you free
to hell with you baby

You're always tellin' me what to do,
What to say, how to think, when to move...
Well, let me just say this about that,
I don't need good lovin' that bad.

I don't need good lovin' that bad,
I don't need good lovin' that bad,
You might be the best lover that I've ever had
You might be the best lover that I've ever had
But I don't need good lovin' that bad.
Track Name: Down To Earth (with Paul Hudson and Rob Cooke)
I don’t have to make up stories
the truth is hard enough to believe
I thought you were waiting for me
you were waiting for the right time to leave

I’m just a cockeyed optimist
judging by all the signs I missed
when the plot began to twist
now that I think about it, now that I think about it

I was flying
you weren’t even trying
what was all my effort worth
you brought me down to earth, down to earth

It takes two to make a story
competing versions of the truth
but I’ve got nothing to bounce off of
you were obviously in it just for you

Looking back, as I recall
every time I tried to roll the ball
you threw up another wall
now that I think about it, now that I think about it

CHORUS

you brought me down to earth
you got me down to earth
you pulled me down to earth,
you shot me down to earth

now my memories insist
on reliving every sign I missed
when the plot, when the plot began to twist
now that I think about it, now that I think about it

CHORUS
Track Name: By This Time Tomorrow (with David Graham and Vaughn Daniel)
You got what you wanted
You're finally alone
Now you're free to go on with all your plans
I'll rise above it
Try not to let it show
That my world has just slipped through my hands

chorus:
By this time tomorrow
I'll be miles away
Away from the sorrow
Away from the pain
I'll probably miss you
Even though I won't know why
By this time tomorrow
I'm gonna be alright

We found love and lost it
Made every mistake
Somehow we thought forever’d never end
We fought it and thought it
Like we could make it stay
But a lie is never easy to defend

repeat chorus:

The good 'ol Days.. are what make
Lovers hold onto the night
And that's why...I couldn't say goodbye
In this morning light
But I know I'll be fine

repeat chorus:
Track Name: Tired Of Your Games (with TomS and G Slade)
Why do you lead me on,
Just to let me down,
Why can’t you just come out and say, you don’t want me around,

Why do you keep making plans,
If you’re just gonna cancel them,
There’s nothing in the world more annoying than a girl that’s fakin’,

Verse 2

Why don’t you let me go,
Why do you hold on,
Why are you wasting our time and my minutes on my telephone,

Well I gotta plan,
This is one you can stick to,
Don’t make any plans with me, I won’t make any with you

Chorus (harmonize if possible)

What do you want,
What do you need,
Why do you keep,
Playing games with me,

What do you want from me,
Is this all just a game,
Well if it’s all the same,
Don’t play with me again,
Track Name: Put Me Down For Life (with David Graham)
I hope I'm making it clear
you ain't got nothing to fear
I've been there and seen it all
No way I'd ever let you fall
I'm right there when you need me
the truth is love so believe me
don't fight your fighter...
Put me down for life....

Put me down for life
Let me fight your fight
Let me right your wrongs
Let me be your strong
turn up the lights...
Put me down for life

I want to be the one for you
Help you do what you do
I can be your stand up guy
Look you right between the eyes
I'm right there when you need me
the truth is love so believe me
don't fight your fighter
Put me down for life

chorus

when the demons and the dragons line up to give you hell
when everyone around you has failed to answer the bell
Just point me in the right direction... that you need that miracle done
cause this guy ...wants to be the one...

chorus
Track Name: Who Ain't Had The Blues (with David Graham and Vaughn Daniel)
You're down on your knees
Yeah, that's how it seems
I know what you're goin' through
It's a down dirty shame
But tell me who ain't had the blues?

You're sad and you're lonely
But you ain't the only
One it's ever happened to
Maybe it's fate
But tell me who ain't had the blues?

Who ain't had the blues?
Who ain't had the blues?
I don't know how you missed the news
Maybe it's your turn to lose
We've all been in those shoes
Tell me who ain't had the blues?

You feel like a joke
Love runs like a ghost
it ain't even gonna tell you boo
What can you say
tell me who ain’t had the blues

So I guess you just joined the club
Livin' this life and playing the games of love
You roll the dice, but you don't win
then you do it all over again

You walk through the dark
Just to see a spark
In the hope of something new
Yes, it’s all just a game
But tell me who ain’t had the blues
Track Name: You Lost Me At Veiny (with Duane Clancy)
I can take pretty much everything
A man can dish out
Another testosterone driven son of a bitch
With a drunk-ass wise-ass mouth
I saw him stumblin’ my direction
bumping tables along the way
My girlfriends headed towards the powder room
Before he could have his say

he put one boot up on an empty chair
He said, “What’s happenin’ girl”
I just looked up and didn’t say a word
His beer breath filled my world
He said, “Hey, I’m talkin’ to you, sister.
What’sa matter cat got your tongue?
Sittin’ there with them veiny legs …”
That was enough for her … she was done …

(Chorus)
she said, “You lost me at veiny”
And she kicked out his chair prop
He had a stupid expression on his face
When to the floor he dropped
I do believe he lost a tooth
When the table passed him by
And if he wakes up, she’ll remind him again
with a beer mug in the eye

(Verse)
You know a fool never learns their lesson
And this dude was the pride of fools
I seen him grinnin’ round the bar the next week
with a gap between his pearls
But he best keep his distance
Cause he done crossed the line
This country gal has had her fill
she'd be glad to hit him one more time

(Chorus)
She said You lost me at veiny (sing it with me …)
And she whacked him with her beer mug (whooo-hooo)
another stupid expression (looked something like this …)
on his face as he dropped (like a sack of … somethin’)
I do believe he lost another tooth (we call him smiley now)
When she hit him with the glass
And if he wakes up, she’ll remind him again (accentuated musical pause)
she'll put a high heel up his ass
Track Name: Don't Tell Me Tomorrow (with David Graham)
there's still a cross on the highway
Where we ran off the road
There was a dream I just can't face
a walk I can not go

Tears won't make it better
Being better won't change that night
So pour more of that something
that comes on the rocks...and makes the night stop..
Makes the ghost go onto bed..and eases this old head

Don't tell me tomorrow... I've never made it through that night
Don't tell me tomorrow... my darkness will never see the light

this does not fade, like a memory
Time they say has got some moves
Once a good love has gone to waste
they say the pain goes down so smooth

Tears won't make it better
Being better won't change that night
So pour more of that something
that comes on the rocks... and makes the night stop...
Makes the ghost go onto bed... and eases this old head

Don't tell me tomorrow... I've never made it through that night
Don't tell me tomorrow... my darkness will never see the light

I'm never going back to that time and place...
but some of me has never left... to this day

Tears won't make it better
Being better won't change that night
So pour more of that something
that comes on the rocks... and makes the night stop...
Makes the ghost go onto bed... and eases this old head

Don't tell me tomorrow... I've never made it through that night
Don't tell me tomorrow... my darkness will never see the light
Track Name: Don't Make Me Play That Song (with Peter "blindkiwi" Murphy)
Well I've played for paupers
And I've played for royalty
I've played for gold and silver
most times I play for free
Its fun to sing a hit song maybe once or twice
But the same songs every night,
Brother that ain't nice

So don't ask me to play black knight
Or old time rock and roll
You can take your long training running,
it don't move my soul
Stick your bad moon rising
Where the sun don't shine
And the next time I hear FREEBIRRRD!
I might just commit a crime

I wanna entertain you
Please don't get me wrong
Did I ever mention
I write my own songs
I know you wanna dance and
maybe sing along
But would it hurt you now and then
to hear a different song

So Don't ask me to sing anything
Written by jimmy buffet
Bob Seger or the eagles
Brother you can stuff it
I don't come from Alabama
That sweet home isn't mine
And the next time I hear FREEBIRRRD!
I might just commit a crime

I’m willin to sing willin
But I wont do cocaine
Peggy Sue and Annie's Song
Make me want to fly a plane
If You call out “Play Skynyrd”
I’ll take3 steps towards the door
No Please don’t ever ask me to
Play FREEBIRRDD
Any
More!
