Just Another Empty Bar

Just another empty bar 

Dusty tables. Unchalked cue 

Just another empty bar 

No rocks and ain’t no whose who’s 

And I don’t know, who you are 

I can tell you paid you’re dues 

I don’t know who you are 


Moon Shine

Wake up, moon shine 

You’ve cast your spell on me 

It’s been a dark, dark night 

But I can finally see. 

Wake on up, moon shine 

Won’t you show your silver soul 

I had to walk downtown 

In a smile…

Sterling lines on  the roadway 

Like a thousand twinkling stars

December's Gone 

This is one I wrote back in 2014 about how the giving season seems to end after the sure to always look out for others, no matter the season. The late Kent Bilbrey recorded his version of this song…



One December night 

I saw a paper doll 

Standing in the rain... 

And I couldn’t believe the sight 

The storm did not at all 

Tear her apart in vain... 

I knew her from some other time 

Back when we were…


A Merry Christmas song...

Have you ever walked past a building or church and could hear what was happening inside but felt too awkward to go inside? Like you did not belong, yet you had as much right to be there as anyone else…

Mourning Sky

His hands were rough and ragged 

Working carpenter by trade 

Carving out his lonely world 

In everything that he made 

He strummed softly on his strings 

After hours in the sun 

And watched the full moon rise up 

Another day…
