Me and My Guitar

A rocky road young love traveled,
she hit the brakes and life unraveled.
The music stopped and she left with my car.
The road now waits for me and my guitar.
~
Playing corner gigs for nickels and dimes,
ain’t got much voice but got good rhymes.
For every heart break there’s a song.
Then another and it don’t take long.
~
The sun’s sinking low and hungers on high,
when the loveliest of ladies caught my eye.
With twenty bucks or so in change,
necessity was now in range.
~
The weight of my wealth couldn’t slow me down.
I chased that lady half way cross town.
We shared a laugh and a quick bite.
I asked if I could crash for the night.
~
Her Benz was parked just around the block.
We both jumped in and started to rock.
Till the music stopped and she left with her car.
The road now waits for me and my guitar.

Ain’t Never

I ain’t never wrote a blues song
Don’ think it sound too good
But my baby did just leave me
And not the way she should
~
Our spring blossomed bright
Our summer was hot
But with those dyin’ leaves
I was forgot
~
I was tossed to the curb
like yesterday’s waste
Now just her memory
I’m forever to taste
~
Love was shared in our hearts
A future’s gone before a start
My baby just left me
And not the way she should
~
I didn’t get call
there was no little fight
I got shot a quick text
on a Tuesday night
~
Her “baggage too great
to groove with me
Just a couple of words
and that’s all I’d see
~
That’s how she left me
Not the way she should
Cos these blues I’m now feelin’
sure ain’t soundin’ good

Forecasting a Past

I’m too old to be a rock star,
too young to drive a big car.
With a Bugs Bunny brain and body of Fudd,
both barrels blaze, half’s a dud.

In my high fidelity cartoon I animate,
pages fanned, notes came late.
Rhythm’s slowed, meter’s now feet,
when the song remains the same chapter’s complete.

Yet I’ve albums to fill and records to break,
while my quill gently weeps for time I ache.

She’s too Nice to Play

~

I’ve waited for this moment

My whole short life long

I think about her everyday

And now to write her song

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

.

She’s a curly long neck blonde

And her moans so ever sweet

When I hold her in my arms

She knocks me off my feet

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

.

I saved up all my money

I ain’t been eatin’ right

But when I cash this paycheck

I’ll be takin her home tonight

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

.

I’ve been eye’n her now for years

And she’s waited just for me

Soon we’ll slip up the backstairs

So nobody else will see

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

.

I unwrapped her very slowly

My heart picked up a beat

Now with her curves in my hands

My life now feels complete

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

.

I wrap my arms around her

I hold her real tight

When I feel her around my neck

It makes me feel just right

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

She tempts me oh so very much

While she sits close and still

To have her rest upon my knee

She gives me the biggest thrill

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

 .

Though rarely is she picked-up

She never lets me down

She always leaves me breathless

I think I’m gonna drown

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

.

Now swaddled in golden satin

She does forever lay

Her beauty I’m unworthy

Cos she’s just too nice to play

.

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I want her any way

 .

Oh she’s my pretty baby

But she’s too nice to play

I know she’ll never love me

But I love her any way
