Author Website: roojam
Hey Artists, I've been playing out all my life which means about 30 yrs now, mostly as a lead singer and lead guitarist in a band that plays a mix of 70's rock and originals. I did a stint with a singer-songwriter in the early 2000's that had me opening shows for some of the biggest names in Outlaw & Alternative Country Music, and got to do some spotlight shows in Nashville and Texas. I began to write music in about 2004, inspired by performing with and writing with a successful artist from Louisiana. I appeared on his CD that was recorded in Nashville and produced by Walt Wilkins. Because I enjoy a wide variety of styles there is no telling what genre of music I may post next. My main guitars include an 89 Deluxe Strat, a 56 Les Paul Fretless Wonder, and a 63 Gibson J45. I've been recording using Logic Pro since Jan 2013 so I'm still learning the ins/outs of the software. I'm finding that even as powerful as the editing and creation tools are there will never be a replacement for live tracking of real musicians, no matter how sophisticated our tools may become.

Everything To Lose by Rusty White

LYRICS:

She butters my bread, on both sides.    That good woman’s keeping me alive

She been right here, since break of dawn,  She’s got me here till I’m dead and gone.

 

When the workdays done, and my day is through, You know I always come back home to you.

Ain’t no other who fits my style,   Been that way for a very long while

 

I’ve got everything, everything to lose,

I raise my flame and light your fuse.

 

Aint got no friends that hang around,  I’m out of whiskey cause I drank it down

You make a deal,  I can’t refuse , I ain’t got no choice but you telling me to choose.

 

I’ve got everything, everything to lose,   I’ve played my hand, like everyone’s fool

I’ve got everything, everything to lose,      I raise my flame,  and set off your fuse

 

Gonna drive my car, way far from here, Which way who knows, I don’t know to steer

 

I’ve got everything, everything to lose,   I’ve played my hand, like everyone’s fool

I’ve got everything, everything to lose,      I raise my flame,  and set off your fuse
