Lyrics

Touch of Outlaw 
(Dalson/Kelley 2016) 
Verse 1 
You never gave up the bike, 
the cigarettes or whiskey, 
you’re precise in what you like, 
and it needs to be risky. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw. 

Verse 2 
I’ll be with you on that bike, 
drinking, smoking, I’m right there, 
even if the worse should strike, 
I will always be right there. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw. 

Instrumental 

Bridge 
Ohhhh, we’re going to ride on. 
Ohhhh, don’t care where we’ve been. 
Ohhhh, we’re going to ride on. 
Don’t know the meaning of sin. 

Chorus 
My man needs a touch of outlaw. 
Time becomes the real buzz saw, 
but can’t force the glint in his eyes to thaw. 
He’s not older, he’s an outlaw.

One More Crime
(Shields/Kelley 2016)

Verse 1
Turn off the lights,
Come back to my bed,
I know it’s not right.
Hold me instead . . .
One more time,

Verse 2
One more crime.
Hear my soul cry,
Make me believe
All those lies . . .
for one more crime,
Share my dreams,
when the night get cold,
Comfort me,

Chorus
Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Instrumental

Verse 3
One more crime,
Before you go,
One more thing
I need to know,
Why can’t you love me?
One more time,
to say goodbye to me,
would be the real crime.

Chorus
Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Don’t say goodbye
‘Till the morning.
Forget about leaving,
I need holdin’

Persian invader Xerxes Video and Song Lyrics

Where there’s no evidence this is a true story, it certainly could be one. Xerxes slayed hundreds of thousands of Greeks during his invasion of the democracies, so it’s not a stretch to imagine a wealthy land owner making a suicidal stand against the invaders. This song has it roots in a poem I published 20 or so years ago, by the same name; I guess I felt compelled by the situation and the thoughts running through the protagonist’s mind as he stood in a small temple at night on his property, in a thunderstorm, knowing Xerxes and his murderous army waited over the next hill.

Why Write Poetry?

Why write poetry? Where Rilke’s answer to this question was, “Because it’s necessary,” I would like to suggest bumping it up a notch; I’d rather call it a compulsion. I write poetry because I’m compelled to do so. I’ve actually tried to avoid it for snatches of years...

Daughters Song by Don Whitaker

This song is a rendition of a father’s love for his daughters. Every father of an adult daughter – at some point – gets a phone call late at night from the daughter who got herself in a bad situation, and desperately needs the father to come help her. The father in the song runs to his truck and drives into the night to help his daughter, thinking about his relationship with her, and concluding ‘there is nothing better than a daughter.’

Matty Groves Brings Us Matt Groves & Rich Jane Song

“Matty Groves” is a Border ballad probably originating in Northern England that describes an adulterous tryst between a man and a woman that is ended when the woman’s husband discovers and kills them. This song exists in many textual variants and has several variant names

The Wild Mouse Roller Coaster Song

The Wild Mouse Song: The singer imagines the boundary between life and death as an amusement park ride, then conjectures communicating with ‘little dead souls.’

A Wild Mouse roller coaster (also Mad Mouse or Crazy Mouse) is a type of roller coaster characterized by small cars that seat four people or fewer and ride on top of the track, taking tight, flat turns (without banking) at modest speeds, yet producing high lateral G-forces. The track work is characterized by many turns and bunny hops, the latter producing abrupt negative vertical G forces.

Doc Holliday Books and Song

Books and song related to Doc Holliday. John Henry Holliday (1851-1887), known throughout the West as Doc Holliday ,was born in Georgia and educated as a dentist in Pennsylvania. Diagnosed with tuberculosis in 1873 and given only a half-year to live, he moved west, hoping to extend his life a few months in the dry climate. Already condemned to a slow, painful death, Holliday knew no fear in dangerous situations, and his fame grew; he teamed up with the Earp brothers during the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and many historians place the amount of men he killed in the 30s. The only fellow Georgian Holliday continued to contact after he went west was his cousin, Mattie Holliday. Shortly after Doc contracted tuberculosis and left Georgia, Mattie too left their childhood world to become a Sister of Charity, entering an Atlanta convent. No correspondence between the two has survived, but it’s safe to say she had a profound impact on Doc, in that even though he had been raised a Presbyterian, it was revealed after his death at Glenwood Springs, Colorado, that he had recently been baptized in the Catholic faith.

A Ka Inside a Pyramid Poem – Ramose circa 1350 BCE

A Ka Inside a Pyramid Ramose circa 1350 BCE.
My heart floats in the ibis jar on top
my brains and liver, all my organs mixed
together like a fetal mass . . .

and so I am back
at the womb, a time when my interior ingredients
floated indistinguishable from my exterior.

When I gain another chance at breathing,
I think I will create a creature
whose interior thoughts are more visible
to its fellows, for I now understand
most strife between us breathing ones
comes from misread intentions.   READ ON
