about

This is a PREVIEW of this album . . . It's a collection of story songs. The cover image, by the way, is a 'hodgepodge' of different theaters, including my favorite theater for many years (and one of my favorite places to be, period), the Ventura Theater.

Track Name: Pull Over
PULL OVER

This goes out to the black-haired lady in the dark blue Ford stepside
Westbound I-40 in the fast lane, twenty miles from the Jackson line
Michael's callin' on his cellphone, to get this message to you
So if you're listenin', he's the red Mustang, smilin' in your rearview

Sounds like you've got a love thing there
Hold on, I'll put Michael on the air

Pull over at the next truck stop
I'll buy the coffee, I'd sure like to talk
Pull over, I like the way you smiled at me
There's no tellin' where this might lead
So if you'd like to meet, pull over

It's three twenty on your drive-time station, our Romeo is still on the line
He'd like to make a dedication to the lady in the Ford stepside
It's John Michael Montgomery singin' "Life's a Dance"
If you want to, give him a sign, if not, he'll understand

If I were you I'd give him a try
He sounds like a real nice guy

Pull over at the next truck stop
I'll buy the coffee, I'd sure like to talk
Pull over, I like the way you smiled at me
There's no tellin' where this might lead
So if you'd like to meet, pull over

Wait a minute let's go to line two
There's a lady with a message for you

I'll pull over at the next truck stop
If you'll buy coffee, I'd sure like to talk
I'll pull over, I like the way you smiled at me
There's no tellin' where this might lead
Yes, I'd like to meet, pull over

Track Name: Till Roses Turn To Stone
TILL ROSES TURN TO STONE

They met at an old-fashioned Fourth of July backyard barbecue
From his mom’s garden, he gave her a rose
Three years later before Senior Prom at Wilson Falls High School
He pinned her corsage and read her a poem

Till roses turn to stone
And all the stars fall from the sky
Till the mountains melt into the sea
Then through the longest night
You’ll never be alone
Till roses turn to stone

He’s got a picture of her on their wedding day – the perfect blushing bride
Taken just before she threw the bouquet
And he still swears that over the years they only had one fight
He sent her flowers with a note to say

Till roses turn to stone
And all the stars fall from the sky
Till the mountains melt into the sea
Then through the longest night
You’ll never be alone
Till roses turn to stone

He kneels down at her graveside
To place a wreath upon the ground
Gently touching the roses
Carved into the marble now

Till roses turn to stone
And all the stars fall from the sky
Till the mountains melt into the sea
Then through the longest night
You’ll never be alone
Till roses turn to stone

Till roses turn to stone

Track Name: Speakin' Easy
SPEAKIN’ EASY

He pulled up in a brand new Packard
With his buddy and his best gal
Found the door in that dark back alley
He knocked three times and they let ‘em in . . .

The crowd kept dancin’ and downin’ their booze
Speakin’ easy, as if they had nothin’ to lose

While the couple were happy flappin’
Their friend took chances with lady luck
Caught outnumbered, accused of cheatin’
- A backroom trial at the butt of a gun

The crowd kept dancin’ and downin’ their booze
Speakin’ easy, as if they had nothin’ to lose

A funny feelin’ made him start searchin’
He found his friend in a pool of blood
Told at gunpoint - forget it happened
He chose to live and he slipped away

The crowd kept dancin’ and downin’ their booze
Speakin’ easy, as if they had nothin’ to lose

Speakin’ easy
Speakin’ easy

Track Name: A Moment I'll Never Forget
A MOMENT I’LL NEVER FORGET

The day I took my little boy to the ballpark for the very first time
He wore his cap and glove, my little man, standin’ in the ticket line
I took his hand and led him up the ramp
We made our way out on the upper deck
His eyes lit up when he saw that green grass
That’s a moment I’ll never forget

The crowd had started thinning out, the game was over by the bottom of the eighth
So we headed down to the good seats, right behind third base
Next batter swung, the foul ball came toward us
I caught it one bounce off the steps
I was proud to hand it to my son
That’s a moment I’ll never forget

Later on, out in the parking lot, he clutched his treasure in his hands
Looked up at me – all one big grin – and said, thank you, dad

Then he saw a younger boy, in a wheelchair, and he thought for a while
But before he got into the car, he asked me to wait, and he smiled
It was quite a sacrifice he made
He put the ball in that boy’s mitt
Should’ve seen that little guy’s face
That’s a moment I’ll never forget

Should’ve seen the pride on my face
That’s a moment I’ll never forget

Track Name: From Tucson To Me
FROM TUCSON TO ME

I wiped a tear from your eye before I got on board
Flight 209 departed on time
From the desert sky I can’t see you anymore
I’m leaving Arizona to start a new life

Someday I hope you’ll understand
This ain’t the way I had it planned
I know I broke your heart and it’s killin’ me to leave
But I’ll send you a ticket - from Tuscon to me

Remember me when I’m gone and write me now and then
I’ll send my love across the miles
But you’ll stay with your mom and her new boyfriend
None of this makes sense – through the eyes of a child

Someday I hope you’ll understand
This ain’t the way I had it planned
I know I broke your heart and it’s killin’ me to leave
But I’ll send you a ticket, from Tuscon to me

I know I broke your heart and it’s killin’ me to leave
But I’ll send you a ticket, from Tuscon to me

Track Name: Frostbite
FROSTBITE

She's drivin' crazy, tryin' to get out of town
It doesn't matter where she's goin' right now
Steam on her windows, her blood's runnin' hot
He was cold and heartless, never thought he'd get caught

She's got frostbite
His love was cold enough to burn
One look into her icy eyes confirms
Frostbite
She's afraid of being touched
Now that she's realized love can hurt so much

Hunger stops her, she wipes the tears from her face
Walks into the diner and pretends she's okay
But when a stranger crosses the room
She cuts him down, it's much too soon

She's got frostbite
His love was cold enough to burn
One look into her icy eyes confirms
She's got frostbite
She's afraid of being touched
Now that she's realized love can hurt so much

Love is a fire you can't control
And where there's smoke you'd think there's a flame
But there's a cloud that comes from dry ice
It looks familiar, but it's not the same

She's got frostbite
His love was cold enough to burn
One look into her icy eyes confirms
Frostbite
She's afraid of being touched
Now that she's realized love can hurt so much

She's got frostbite
She's got frostbite
She's got frostbite

Track Name: Colorado '95
COLORADO ’95

Colorado, ’95
Denver Airport, missed my flight
As fate would have it, you were just about to land

Two years later, March fourteenth
Your parents house, I took a knee
Had their permission, before I asked you for your hand

I know sometimes I might forget ‘bout the little things in life
And when you’re tryin’ to talk to me, something else is on my mind
Try to forgive me if you can, and honey, please remember this . . .
There are some things I never will forget

The day our baby girl was born
Really taught me what love is for . . .
Changed my whole life, and everything I thought I knew

I count my blessings every night
And look back on my best times in life
Like every morning when I wake up next to you

I know sometimes I might forget ‘bout the little things in life
And when you’re tryin’ to talk to me, something else is on my mind
Try to forgive me if you can, and honey, please remember this . . .
There are some things I never will forget

Colorado, ’95
Denver Airport, missed my flight
As fate would have it, you were just about to land

Track Name: Church Bells
CHURCH BELLS

I hear the church bells ringing, but honey don't you go
Stay here for a minute, and let me hold you close
I know this isn't right on your wedding day
I know I shouldn't be seeing you this way
And I hear the church bells ringing, but honey don't you go

Church bells are ringing, but I've just got to say
Remember when you're saying your wedding vows
that you're the only woman I'll ever love this way
- I hope that you're happy now

I remember when I met you just like yesterday
Those old feelings now they come back or never went away
I feel a spark between us - don't let it disappear
We'll never be the same when we walk out of here
I remember when I met you just like yesterday

Church bells are ringing, but I've just got to say
Remember when you're saying your wedding vows
that you're the only woman I'll ever love this way
- I hope that you're happy now

We're keeping people waiting, just give me one more hug
I'd better let you go now, I guess our time is up
I had to have a minute alone with you
I'll see you at the alter when we say we do
We're keeping people waiting, just give me one more hug

Church bells are ringing, but I've just got to say
Remember when you're saying your wedding vows
that you're the only woman I'll ever love this way
- I hope that you're happy now
- I hope that you're happy now

Track Name: This Time
THIS TIME

Susie showed up at our door sometimes late at night
Make-up runnin', eyes swollen from the tears she'd cried
No place else to go
She’d say he lost control
And she was closer than the demons he was tryin’ to fight

This time she's leavin' him forever
This time she saw the light
Finally, she’s gone to find better
Now that he crossed the line
She's never goin' back this time

In the mornin' she‘d stare into her coffee cup
Mumblin' somethin' 'bout how she'd really had enough
Then he’d call on the phone
And beg her to come home
She’d say 'no', but she’d be cryin' when she hung up

This time she's leavin' him forever
This time she saw the light
Finally, she’s gone to find better
Now that he crossed the line
She's never goin' back this time

This time he went too far
A bullet to her heart
She thought she’d save him with her love
- He killed her in cold blood

This time she's leavin' him forever
This time she saw the light
Finally, she’s gone to find better
Now that he crossed the line
She's never goin' back
She's never goin' back
She's never goin' back
. . . this time

Track Name: Red Roses
RED ROSES

I came to this diner
a couple months ago
You smiled and poured coffee
but you were sad, I know

I've been coming here each day
And it looks like something's changed

Someone's been sending you Red Roses
Someone's trying awful hard
To let you know how much he loves you
I wonder if he's won your heart

Since he sent you flowers
You've seemed to come to life
I hear you talk about
Romantic notes he writes

I've been coming here each day
And it looks like something's changed

Someone's been sending you Red roses
Someone's trying awful hard
To let you know how much he loves you
I wonder if he's won your heart

I've been coming here each day
And it looks like something's changed

I've been sending you Red Roses
I've been trying awful hard
To let you know how much I love you
I wonder if I've won your heart
I wonder if I've won your heart
