I recorded a couple of songs I wrote decades ago. I think I've posted one or both of them before, a year or 2 ago, but this time I've got .MP3 files to go with them. The songs are just me and my guitar recorded via my laptop's microphone . . . so it's not exactly hi fidelity :-).  But they're serviceable enough to listen to. I hope you like them.  Here's the lyrics to the 2 songs. The .MP3 files are attached.

SHE WANTED TO PLAY

The sun broke through the clouds
As she lay waking
A voice cried out from the crowds
Another heart breaking

She wanted to play
I wanted to say . . . I love you

I ran to her
Like the summer runs to fall
She began to purr
Like a kitten with a ball

She wanted to play
I wanted to say . . . I love you

The card she was dealing
Sure made it hard on feeling
The world would ever stop reeling

At a frantic pace
As she rode and I carried
A romantic race
To die or get married

She wanted to play
I wanted to say . . . I love you

We flew past the finish line
Not knowing we had crossed it
Blind, blind, to every sign
We had it all but lost it

She wanted to play
I wanted to say . . . I love you

The card she was dealing
Sure made it hard on feeling
The world would ever stop reeling

She wanted to play
I wanted to say . . . I love you

 


 

MIXED EMOTIONS

Mixed emotions and outside views
Everybody's crazy, now spread the news
We'll always be just what we are
A nasty cut leaves an ugly scar

Just laying around and soaking sun
Smoking grass is loads of fun
You can get along in so many ways
You can get things done on lazy days

My father was a gambling man
My ma stayed home, doing all she can
My sister was a one-night-stand
And I played in a traveling band

Cloudy skies and bright sunshine
What's yours is yours if it's not mine
Go off someplace to be alone
And count the things you've never known

Quit your job and take it easy
Spend the night with something sleazy
Be careful not to be too blunt
If you don't watch out, I'll see through your frong

My father was a gambling man
My ma stayed home, doing all she can
My sister was a one-night-stand
And I played in a traveling band

You claim I know not what I do
And I'll die before my life is through
Well I claim you know not what you say
Things have got to get better now, any day

Don't get too high, don't get too low
You don't have to try what you don't know
If you don't you pass, if you do you fail
Fight for what's right but keep out of jail

My father was a gambling man
My ma stayed home, doing all she can
My sister was a one-night-stand
And I played in a traveling band
