about

The melodies and some of the themes are influenced by my years playing in blues bands from Mississippi blues to modern. I owe much to walking-talking-writing-performing bluesman and friend, Mr. Jim Dowling and the late Tom Lewis.

Track Name: Deep Down In My Soul
One long day, one lonely night
That morning sun don't look so right
Cos I'm lost without you deep down in my soul

I try to get some sleep
Your memory still keeps on
Haunting me baby deep down in my soul

No matter what I try I'm stuck on your goodbye
One day the truth will bite but for now I got to fight

Don't know what I’m gonna do to get me over you
'Cos I'm lost without you deep down in my soul

I promise to forget
But I always lose that bet
You’re still dealing’ aces deep down in my soul

One day I guess I'll learn
But for now a fire still burns
Like a beacon – imagine that, a beacon in my soul!

No matter what I try I'm stuck on your goodbye
One day the truth will bite but for now I got to fight

Don't know what I’m gonna do to get me over you
'Cos I'm lost without you deep down in my soul

Another day, another night
Another week and I just lose the fight

‘Cos I’m lost without you deep down in my
Lost without you deep down in my
Lost without you deep down in my soul
Deep down in my soul
Track Name: Who'da Thunk It
Don’t say nothin’, I can see it in your eyes
No, not one word, I can guess goodbye
I saw it coming like those storm clouds in the sky

Trouble was coming, I just didn’t know how fast.
Looks like this dry spell is really set to last.
But who’d a thunk it - all we’re gonna share’s a past.

What kind of fool would let things come to this
To lose a lover, and a friend as dear as this?
I’ll taste forever your last sweet, bitter kiss

Come tomorrow, I wonder where, where will I be
On some lonesome highway, a wiser man maybe.
Our sweet love a sad memory.

What kind of fool would let it come to this?
To lose a lover, and a friend as good as this?
I’ll taste forever that last sweet kiss
Track Name: Spring Fever Blues
Spring is here, the grass has ris’.
I wonder where my Baby is
I got these terrible Spring fever blues. Yes I do

The sun is high but I’ll stay in bed,
Ache in my heart and pain in my head
With these terrible Spring fever blues

We loved the winter long,
Now I wonder what went wrong
Spring has come but my Baby’s gone from me
I wonder where she is tonight.
I long to kiss and hold her tight
And end these terrible Spring fever blues

Well, I’m down here by the harbour lights
Watching ships pull out of sight
Leaving me these terrible Spring fever blues

Lovers pass me hand in hand.
They could never understand
My terrible Spring fever blues

We loved the winter long.
Now I wonder what went wrong
Spring has come but my Baby’s gone from me
I wonder where she is tonight.
I long to kiss and hold her tight
And end these terrible Spring fever blues

She may not come back but then she might.
If she does I’m gonna hold her tight
And end these terrible Spring fever blues
Gonna end these terrible Spring fever blues
These terrible Spring fever blue
Track Name: Never Miss A Day Of Your Love
Never Miss A Day Of Your Love

If I had an aeroplane, and I could fly, I’d write your name, in the sky
I’d write I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love

Sure there were times, and well you know, I packed my bag, said I’d go
But I wouldn’t leave you. No I wouldn’t miss a day of your love

You’re all the world to me. Our loves ev’rything love should be
I’m so glad, out of the blue, all of a sudden there was you

I know you love me, I don’t know why. I guess that I’m just, a lucky guy
You know I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love

You’re all the world to me. Our loves ev’rything love should be
I’m so glad, out of the blue, all of a sudden there was you

I know you love me, I don’t know why. I guess that I’m just, a lucky guy
You know I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love
You know I love you and I wouldn’t miss a day of your love
Track Name: Hey Mama Tell Me What You Say
Hey, Mama! You look so sweet
The kind of woman that I’d love to meet
Hey, Mama! You look so grand,
I’d do anything just to hold your hand

Hey, Mama! You look so fine
The kind of woman that I want for mine
Hey, Mama! Tell me what you say!
Should I try my luck or turn and walk away?

Hey, Mama! Can’t take much more
Gotta know one way for sure
Hey, Mama! Tell me what you say?
Just a little clue would surely make my day

Well boys, I guess that’s over now
She’d be too good for me anyhow
Hey, Mama! What’s that you say?
Oh! Well bless my soul! The girl wants me to stay

Hey, Mama! You fill me up
Like a big, warm coffee cup
Hey, Mama! Tell you what I say:
I’m gonna love you girl until my dying day
I’m gonna love you girl until my dying day
I’m gonna love you girl until my dying day
Track Name: Simon At Your Gate
Simon At Your Gate

My boots are laughing at me
I got newsprint for a bed
Got no destination
Just these voices in my head
Crying “Rise up Simon!”
Boots take me ‘way from here!
Can’t imagine nowhere’s worse
Don’t expect me any better than here

My roof is Mother Nature
My fuel methylate
I keep my old army pocket knife
For the stranger at my gate
Won’t let no walls hold me
That spirit keeps me warm
And my knife is always handy
If some fool tries to make me conform

If you see a man of yesterday
Shuffle by real late
There’s no need to fear a spectre
It’s just Simon at your gate
Won’t let no walls hold him
His spirit keeps him free,
Could use your help but not your pity
There’s more to him than anyone can see.

There’s pity and puzzle in ordin’ry eyes
Sometimes I see fear
Lest foolishness or fickle fate
Could one day land you here
With no walls to protect you
And on the street like me
Doing all the best we can
Rememb’ring who we used to be

There’s pity and puzzle in ordin’ry eyes
Sometimes I see fear
Lest foolishness or fickle fate
Could one day land you here
With no walls to protect you
And on the street like me
Doing all the best we can
Rememb’ring who we used to be.
Could use your help but not your pity
There’s more to us than anyone can see
And if you look a little closer
You’ll find people just like you and me
Track Name: Going Nowhere
Well, you went away and left me high and dry
You went away and left me high and dry
You said you set me free but all I do is cry

The days are long the nights are longer still
The days are long the nights are longer still
You left me emptiness I know I’ll never fill

You been gone, you been gone, you been gone too long
You been gone, you been gone, you been gone …
Without you, what’s a man to do?
‘Cos I’m just going nowhere without you

Might take a train, a bus, a plane, a car
Might take a train, a bus, a plane, a car
I’ll ride a camel if it takes me where you are

My heart is broke and my head ‘ain’t right
I lay awake alone each night
Without you, what’s a man to do?
‘Cos I’m just going nowhere without you

You went away and left me high and dry
You went away and left me high and dry
Now I’m just going nowhere without you
