about

My first Garage band creation ! Some of the music and titles inspired from our trip to Colorado and pictures we had taken along the way. Our trip to Colorado was a wonderful trip and when I went thru the pictures we had taken I thought it was a good theme for my c.d, as the main cover suggests , sometimes in our journeys the road is unclear ahead of us.
I would love to write soundtracks for film and shows some day. I have written a couple things that made it on a couple documentaries and a couple short films.

Track Name: Cowboy Lullaby
Cowboy Lullaby

Its been a long hard day, can't wait to see his face
leave this day far behind, and just try to unwind

when its time to go to sleep, but sleep just won't find me
he'll lay down by my side and sing a cowboy lullaby

when its time to close my eye's,but sleep I cannot find
he'll wrap his arms around me and sing me in to dreams

when its time to close my eye's,but sleep I cannot find
he'll wrap his arms around me and sing me in to dreams
Track Name: Isabella
Isabella

Isabella, Isabella, Why'd you go and take my man
I don't really think you love him, you just did it cause you can
Isabella, Isabella, is it all a game to you, when your tire of your boyfriend and go find somebody new

waltz right in with your long red hair and your big green eye's and the men just stare, and they all wanna drink, and they all wanna dance and you act like they all have a chance, pick one out and ya take one home and you do watcha do until your done
time goes buy and the new wheres thin and your off to find another man

Isabella, Isabella, with my boyfriend on your arm
there's no Jezebel or Jolene that can compete with your charms
You make breaking homes into a wretched form of art
somebody's got to stop you for you break another heart

waltz right in with your long red hair and your big green eye's and the men just stare, and they all wanna drink, and they all wanna dance and you act like they all have a chance,
but I know something you don't know, we've all decided you must go, women of this town are through with broken hearts because of you

Isabella, Isabella,the woman with no shame
there's a bullet in my pocket engraved with your name
one day i'll have the guts to go and find myself a gun
and wait for you behind the bar where there's no where to run

have no fear i won't get caught, the sheriff is our only law and Izzy it looks bad for you, the sheriff is a woman and she hates you too
you stole her husband and wrecked her home, she tops the list that wants you gone , the moral of my stories song is hell hath no furry like a woman wronged
Track Name: Fathom
earth and sky sun and moon
the oceans and their life within
in all their beauty and majesty
architecture and grand design
there's and order i can't deny
i look into this world and see
the work's of God i can't perceive
how did you create such a plan
i cannot fathom or understand

in your likeness from the dust
with your breath gave us birth
we push our limits we turned out backs
still you care for this child of wrath
for all our trouble for all we're worth
You sent redemption threw a virgin birth
i look into my eye's and see excuse for
wrath poured out on me
why did you create this stubborn man
i cannot fathom or understand

the brightest minds and philosophers
explain away your wondrous works
how could these men be so blind
they shut their eyes and close their minds
from the beginning threw eternity
You reach out to humanity
i look at mankind and i see
spiraling downward in depravity
You open Your heart hold out Your hand
i cannot fathom or understand 3 x
Track Name: When I Wake Up
when i wake up

written by rjw
1st. verse

i fell in a trance when i asked you to dance
you smiled and agreed
we’re out on this dance floor, dancing real slow , such a romantic scene
that look in you eyes say this must be true love
surely this must be a dream, when i wake up , i wanna wake up with you in my arms

chorus

dreams may come and dreams may go, some are too good to be true
just like this dream i am in with you

2nd. verse

we’ve come a long way since that special day, it’s such a beautiful place
i’m afraid if i’m shaken ,i will awaken , you’ll be gone without a trace
i’ll then spend my day’s sleeping my life away trying to get back to you ,
cause, when i wake up ,i wanna wake up with you in my arms

chorus

2nd chorus
dreams may come and dreams may go ,some are too good to be true
just like this dream i am in with you
no ,please don’t shake me don’t awake me , i wanna see where this leads
cause when i wake up i wanna wake up with you in my arms
Track Name: Sad Sad Moon
Sad Sad Moon

1st vrs

closer to the earth are you lonesome tonight
sad sad moon not shinning very bright
don’t you think the stars will miss you tonight
won’t you join them in the sky and bless with your light
illuminate our hearts you will , when you take your rightfull place

chorus

don’t feel so alone, your not so far away
the world has it’s eyes, gazeing at your marvelouse view

2nd vrs

you set the mood for a romantic night
across from the lake shines your beautiful light
as you rise into the night how bright you have become
illuminate the stars you are the glory of the sun
illuminate our hearts you will , when you take your rightfull place

chorus

don’t feel so alone, your not so far away
the world has it’s eyes, gazeing at your marvelouse view
