Look at Me
1.LILACS Lilacs was written for my now ex-wife, who loved lilacs, I remember when a friend of mine and I dug up an enormous lilac bush far out in the woods and replanted it at my farm. I believe the plant is still there, but the wife and marriage is long gone 2.PURPLE AND RED A song about the famous Red Hat Ladies. They sure know how to party . 3.YOU'RE DRIVING ME CRAZY Your Driving Me Crazy was written to pitch to Conway Twitty when I haunted Nashville. I don't know if he ever listen to it, but I was told by his sister that he had taken the tape with him on his bus. He died shortly after that. Enough said about bad luck. 4.REMEMBER Linda and I were walking back from a jam session in Aspen, Co. about 2 o'clock in the morning. The snow began to fall, and we found ourselves captured in a living winter post card. The song says it all. 5.BROKEN HEART, BROKEN HOME Broken Heart, Broken Home was the day the furniture and her belongings were loaded up into the u-haul and the kids were put into her van to venture onto a new life style a thousand miles away. It took a short while to write the song, and a lot longer to sing it all the way through without breaking down. Songs written from the heart have that tendency to lift you up or drop you so hard you never think your going to recover 6.TUFFS SONG My daughter Sara stumbled upon a young horse caught up in barb wire on a cold rainy winter night in South Dakota. She purchased the injured colt from the rancher and took it home to nurse it back to health. To make a long story short, the colt surrived, and she named it Tuff. I wrote a song about the incident. Thought she would be pleased. She hated it. Who knew. 7.HEART BROKEN COWBOY Heart Broken Cowboy, was written for the rest of us guys who find themselves out in left field long after the game is over and the lights have been turned off. Where do we go from here? 8.LOOK AT ME A song about artist who spend their whole life trying to make it to the top, and sometimes never realizing the cost. 9.AS LONG AS YOUR AWAY I wrote this on the road, sitting on a mountain side, looking down into the valley, wishing I wasn't there. 10.PURPLE AND RED (LIVE) Just having a good time on stage.
