No Spring Chicken

The record, starting with the overwhelming strength of “Baby Blue”, a deep celebration of a new born life, to “Welcome Home” with it’s ability to remind you how comforting the idea of home can be, to track three, a fun hillbilly party called “Ain’t That Alright”, “No Spring Chicken” covers enough variety (the spice of life) to remind you of bands like The Beatles. The final track really takes variety to the next level, being an early Christmas release called “Christmas 365”. This song is full of holiday reminders and touches on the idea that if Christmas was all year round then would it lose it’s special place in one’s heart.
 
 

Song Lyrics

Baby Blue

Why are there skies of blue, why are all the flowers beautiful
How are you able to amaze me not even knowing who I am to you

Water moves
Taking a path that leads it where it needs to follow through
As long as you laugh and stay true
Then your life will flow as the rivers do

My arms will surround you
Nothing’s in your way, always remember
This takes my breath away
Just look at you, little wonder in a bundle

Water moves…

Miracles, they come around
Magic clouds bring the rain on down
Rivers flow
My baby blue, life has, it has a way to start… anew

Water moves…

Miracles…

…life will, life will, life will take ahold

 
Welcome Home

Where have you been, welcome home, man how you’ve grown
What have you seen, how time’s flown, come on over here…

Hang your hat and your coat right there
Man let me tell ya bout answered prayer
Alright I’m puttin’ the coffee on
Sit and we’ll hang till the coming dawn

Well you’re more then welcome to stay
Welcome home out of the rain…
I was afraid that I’d never see you again

Throughout one’s life when you roam, there’s no place like home
Remember that smell, remember that tone, one could close his eyes…

Where’s the fella that lived next door
We used to run to the general store
Life was so simple compared to now
Go home and bring it all back somehow…

…my friend welcome home
welcome home

 

Ain’t That Alright
Where are, where are you right now
I just wonder, where are you

Well ain’t that alright, ain’t that just fine
Really it’s only when I think about you
Think of that night, ain’t that alright, alright

Just the other day I thought about the time we had
I see your face shining through the winds of time
So what today, the sacred try, the wall, the way?
Could really use the sound of good advice

Where are you…

Well ain’t that alright…

I think you left a hole a mile wide
I climb the walls and hope to see the ocean tide
You let time and how I feel go by the way?
I hope to somehow get through the day

Where are you…

Well ain’t that alright, ain’t that just fine
Really you took my heart and ran away…
Well that’s yesterday, you know what they say…
Live for today…

 

Christmas 365

Bring the bottle of Perignon, I have the mistletoe…

Everyone that I know, gathering and riding that Christmas day flow
Yeah we’re rockin’ that once a year festival

Those special times me and you
Wonderful feelings are true
Waving a flag call the truce
Willing to set aside all our foolish pride

Sugar plum, rum bum bum of a drummer boy
Memories, candy canes and Christmas trees
Silent night, star of Bethlehem and family

Laughing out louder then ya really know how
Find a comfortable spot the cider is hot
Never better wow, then right now

Well would ya change it if ya could
What if life was that good
Something to think about awhile
Why can’t this feeling last all year round

Sugar plum…
