I've been playing drums since I was 7 years old. I picked up the guitar about 10 years ago and I play bass also. I've been in a ton of bands in the last 18 years. I started writing my own sings about 4 years ago. I mostly write country but I have a few rock and R&B songs as well.

(1st)
Where I grew up it’s a slower pace.
No one’s runnin’ in a rat race.
We spent our weekend’s playin’ cards all night.
No real problems & no big fights.
Sunday mornin’ church was the place.
The valley echoed Amazing Grace.
Man! I’d give anything for those days
When everybody lived in simpler ways.
(Chorus)
Cause we were Hillbilly Rich…
When Granny make you go & pick a switch.
Hillbilly Rich…
You might help your cousin get his truck out “da’ditch”.
Well that’s the way we were born & raised.
We didn’t have a clue that no money was saved.
And I’d give anything if we’d go back & switch
to those days when we were rich.
(2nd)
Each holiday we’d all spend together.
Same time same place no matter the weather.
Uncle Lloyd always blessed the feast.
We were always happy to say the least.
But “now-a-days” everyone lives so fast.
Can’t tell you a time we were together last.
Man! I’d give anything for those days.
When everybody lived in simpler ways.
Repeat chorus x2
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hillbilly rich………
Yeah, yeah, yeah……. Whoa!
(Tag)
We didn’t know we were poor…
Couldn’t ask for nothin’ more…
Hillbilly Rich……

Can’t Be

Lying here in this house alone
Wonderin’ why you can’t pick up the phone
I try to convince myself everything’s ok
You don’t think twice to give me a call
I probably never cross your mind at all
And I don’t hear from you till the very next day
(Chorus)
Well I never ever even thought
That you and I would be apart
But now I know that we can’t be
Now our love’s been thrown off track
And what’s been said we can’t take back
And now I know(And I know too).
You and I can’t be
(2nd)
If you love someone and your is true
You won’t put them what you’ve put me through
And I feel like I’ve lost me best friend
Well my whole life I’ve always heard
That actions speak much louder than words
And the cold hard true is we’re at our end

(Repeat Chorus)

(Tag)
Well I never ever even thought
That you and I would be apart
But now I know(And I know too).
That we can’t be

My Fix

MY FIX
My eyes are blown, off liquid and dust
From a three day binge
But I can see, through all the haze
That our love’s come unhinged
Time spent making love and trust is gone……
Now I’m forced into the world to face it alone……
(Break)
My blood boils from the sweet release
That I pushed into me
Hoping to run from all this pain
And insecurities
The light I had before is dimming fast……
One more drink will fuel the flame and help it last…..
(Chorus)
I can’t sleep, and I can’t think
Just give me my fix
You’re my drug and you’re my drink
Just give me my fix (x2)

Just give me my fix…..

(Verse 1)
To much beer and whiskey will take over how you think
Cause she was never as pretty as before my last drink
High Life and Jager are close friends of mine
But we never can agree on where to draw the line
Found me an angel who was sent from above
Got back to her place and we made crazy drunk love
Got up this morning thinkin’ what have I done
I went to bed with a ten…..
And woke up with a one!
(Chorus)
Whatever happened to my backwoods beauty
That little cutie smelled fruity, I think her name was Judy
I thought that I had really hit a homerun
But I wanted to run home after I seen what I’d done
Went out lookin’ for a little bit of fun
Ended up in bed with a ten…..
And woke up with a one!
(Verse 2)
As the sun rose up, so did my blood shot eyes
You can only imagine how I was feelin’ inside
What had happened to my goddess from the night before
Cause whatever this is here, has me headin’ for the door
Damn that PBR and the chilled Patron
This time, let me tell you boys, they really done me wrong
I grabbed my keys, put on my shoes, I was ready to run
I’d went to bed with a ten……
And woke up with a one!
(Chorus)
(Tag)
I was just lookin’ for some fun…
And went from ten to one!

New Style of Old School

(Verse1)
When I was old enough to drink
Is where my story begins
I went out most every weekend
With all my rowdy Friends
Outlaw Country Music
Will never die
Taught myself how to hunt and fish
Listening to Country Boy Can Survive
But now days this styles a Dinosaur Mmmmm
And they say it ain’t coming back no more
(Chorus)
So I say take a little this, and a little of that
If you don’t know where your going
Just take a step back
And look at what all the people before went through
Playing in smoke fill bars
A different bed every night
Puttin’ their heart in every song till the mornin’ light
Just to hear, “You ain’t never gonna make it fool!”
Ohhhhh, This is just a new style of old school.
(Verse2)
Cut my teeth on Cash and Waylon
Thought it would always be that way
Folsom Prison and Luckenbach Texas
Said all there was to say
Throw in a little Hank
Don’t forget about C.D.B
Cause today’s country music Lord
Don’t cut it for me
And I can’t forget the words David Allen Coe said
It’s about Momma, Trains, Trucks, Prison
And getting drunk is stuck in my head
(Chorus)
(Tag)
Todays country music just don’t feel right
Funny how things seem to change, just over night
(Chorus)
This is a new style of old school (x2)
