first time that I saw you you couldn’t hear what I said I mumbled the jumble that was there in my head now it’s this much time later we’re still looking for words to capture our story to say what we’ve heard hey feast or famine day or dark night here or yonder clouds or blue peace and love struggle and fight all this time me and you yeah I’m strumming in the moonlight for revelers and knaves can’t stop now want the bills to be paid and oh how they pass by like moving scenery from time to time one may stop and say hey feast or famine day or dark night here or yonder clouds or blue peace and love struggle and fight all this time me and you there’s a whole long list of things on an old paper I have in my pocket crossed them off one by one with you baby took more time than we thought but then maybe what is it they say? the destination is the journey oh I get put through the paces out on that road you say I can do it I say I don’t know so I’m leaving the believing to you for a while I’ll pick up the slack when it’s my turn to smile feast or famine day or dark night here or yonder clouds or blue peace and love struggle and fight all this time me and you

want what I want when I want it that’s the spirit of the age you call it the zeitgeist when they write so many words upon the page you hear the tick tick of the clock clock then the click click then the shot shot another empire come to dance upon the world then fade away load up the back of the v dub bus sign on the back say ‘Hillshire Beach or Bust’ smaller and smaller in the mirror goes the town as we drop into this new sound down in JA we sing and dance in the pouring rain spirit moves through the crowd can you hear the sound now of my home island’s soul? warm you up when you feeling cold you don’t have to jump the next ship to bring it home! no! the night dark, the goat black, the gate pen is open what’s broke in the past cannot be unbroken well I miss her so very much, this bears repeating, so very much I miss the touch of the warm air - sometimes these things I cannot bear so tired you’re drunk in the evening time work is over just relax your mind hey young man what you got in your hand? you could lose it beating the bushes and then where would we stand? down in JA we sing and dance in the pouring rain spirit moves through the crowd can you hear the sound now of my home island’s soul? warm you up when you feeling cold you don’t have to jump the next ship to bring it home! no! down in JA we sing and dance in the pouring rain spirit moves through the crowd can you hear the sound now of my home island’s soul? warm you up when you feeling cold you don’t have to jump the next ship to bring it home

where’re you going? can i come with? I’m just here throwing my voice in the wind and no one shouts back so I assume it got lost on the way cuz the distance was too great it’s off a ways but not too far I go there often so I don’t lose the spark and the times that I have had some company never hurt me none so come on and join me if you want I’m falling down from the sky and I’m searching for thermals to rise I’ve had my near-death ride and no surprise - it’s hard to talk about it godspeed to you godspeed to me it’s funny God’s a word I don’t use usually and I’m feeling brave I’m feeling strong I don’t care if they think I’m right or wrong I’m falling down from the sky and I’m searching for thermals to rise I’ve had my near-death ride and no surprise - it’s hard to talk about it well I’m feeling brave I’m feeling strong I don’t care if they think I’m right or wrong

the dust has settled now so count your fingers and toes the dust has settled now why we were fighting nobody knows panic hit when the cannery in the coal mine fell from its perch group-think got synced and sunk the ship now we’re waiting for the lights from the search that’s OK man it’s just one big circle started turning long ago each generation thinks it’s dodged the bullet now we know what we didn’t know the dust has settled now so count your fingers and toes the dust has settled now why we were fighting nobody knows blue tides of tv light shimmering on your face talking heads from the box telling you what is and what isn’t the case the weatherman can’t always show you which way the wind blows sometimes you got to step outside and know it goes where it goes the dust has settled now so count your fingers and toes the dust has settled now why we were fighting nobody knows

funny thing about loneliness always comes when you least expect it always just tip toes in with all the other invited guests funny thing about love always is, always was even when you think it’s gone if you try too hard you might just break before you’re done if you leave just because you think they want you gone then you’re gone if you walk out the door saying that you won’t be back no more who you really hurting oh? funny thing about war each side seems to think it’s God they’ve got on board as they’re praying in their foxholes that one last time funny thing about peace chase it all your life you still end up on your knees begging please come shine a light funny thing about control that others don’t have it is easy to know but you can’t turn your eyes on your own face though and the image in the mirror ain’t right funny thing about a man’s soul ain’t his to sell yet the price is set so low follow me down to the crossroad at midnight you’ll have to wait in line

gone fishing gone fishing in my pond gone fishing it’s a thing of which I’m fond I jump over that hill that’s just beyond them trees gone fishing and I’m whistling a song well it’s not that I’m not social but I sure would be obliged if you waited here on the porch and didn’t come wailing by you see this is the one part of the week where it’s me, myself and I so grab yourself a lemonade and rest your feet a while cuz I gone fishing gone fishing in my pond gone fishing it’s a thing of which I’m fond I jump over that hill that’s just beyond them trees gone fishing and I’m whistling me a song this is my own personal eden wholesome, living and clean the water is teeming with trout that’s jumping just for me well there ain’t no place on earth where I feel such peace of mind if the lord chose to take me now I’d run off to his side well the first thing you’ll see is my nappy head of hair next thing my body will surely soon appear coming over that hill if it’s not too dark a time you’ll also see upon my face a smile a half mile wide cuz I gone fishing I gone fishing in my pond gone fishing it’s a thing of which I’m fond I jump over that hill that’s just beyond them trees gone fishing, I gone fishing gone fishing and I’m whistling a song

cold and cruel whistle back to me the worker’s song that made them strong so I can hear their story it’s a sign of the times when the wishing wells and the church’s bells cannot call us to their sides well this time if I choose I could just slip on a pair of old shoes could suffer and struggle cuz it’s what I do when the world is cold and cruel when the world is cold and cruel well a leech is a leech, when put to skin, sucks blood in without even giving warning if i put a fire to its back, how long before lust so bold is trumped by the pain? well this time if I choose I could just slip on a pair of old shoes could suffer and struggle cuz it’s what I do when the world is cold and cruel when the world is cold and cruel how long must I train the sun through this glass upon the leaves for there to spring a flame? ears to the ground, how far behind did I fall last night when I melted into the crowd? well this time if I choose I could just slip on a pair of old shoes could suffer and struggle cuz it’s what I do when the world is cold and cruel when the world is cold and cruel if I choose I could just slip on a pair of old shoes could suffer and struggle it’s what I do when the world is cold and cruel when the world is cold and cruel

His forthcoming LP, “I Was on the Moon” is his most ambitious in scope. It is slated for release early summer 2016.
