i wrote this song this month March 2015 and recorded it straight away. i sort of taught myself the song while i recorded it. the vocals wernt happening so i came back to it the next day and got them in a couple of passes... a couple of clunker notes but in the end a new song was born about a bad man...... Casey Leanza did a great painting for the song... thank you many times over.


These Terrible Things

A long time ago when the words came real slow
and time stretched out on an endless line
If the spirit ever moved me I would not undo these
terrible things that I have done

I gave it a rest and I tried my best
to be good to my fellow man
But that slow slow ache set my heart at a pace
i don't know what happens and I can't help what happens next

please dont erase the smile off the face
of a world that's turning cold
nowhere left to go and i cannot un know
It's knowin' that's hodin'
keeps me cocked and loaded
it's the knowin' that's holdin my hand


released April 1, 2015
g.d guitars and vocal... Casey Leanza artwork
