My Country

My Country
My mother came fromCounty Offaly in Ireland, My father was Scottish Canadian. I grew up in England. One day I picked up a gee-tar and decided to write country songs. Here's the result. What d'ya think? Too soon to give up the day job?

Soul Searching

Soul Searching
I improvised this poem into my iPad and then built it up into a song in Garageband. I'm getting very good at sound production now and am mightily pleased with the result!

SOUL SEARCHING

Soul Searching

Searching in the soul

Searching in the soul

Why don’t you hit me?

Why don’t you hit me?

Soul Searching

If you don’t know

I’m not going to tell you

If you don’t know

I’m not going to tell you

Time spent

walking in the Strand

and Charing Cross road

If you don’t know

I’m not going to tell you

Try as I may

and you know

I might

When you’re coarse and vulgar

everything feels cold

throw your book away

you have nothing to say

page by page

down the drain

set on fire

thrown out again

Why don’t you hit me?

how many times?

have you heard the news

gradually  processing

filtering through

one thing or two

some of it’s new

nothing to do

same as you

forgot the view

no it’s not what you were saying but

only something else

build a wall

then let it fall

the world is all wrong

the world is all wrong

the world is all kinds of wrong

with a side order of wrongness

with a side order of wrongness

down the drain

with the rain

and your pain

all again
