Track Name: When Country Music Takes A Detour (Interlude)
When country music takes a detour.
It's okay.
It's alright.
Track Name: Palace Gardens Feat. Graphium
Palace Gardens©
(Collaboration with Graphium)
There is a gravel path traveled.
Lord Goring is calling me.
Lord Goring is calling me.
He’s waiting at the grand house.
He’s waiting at the grand house.
Laid out by Henry Wise.
Having tea with Henry Wise.

I’m enchanted by the feeling.
This day…
I’m enchanted by the feeling.
This day…
In Palace Gardens,
In Palace Gardens.

There is a gravel path traveled.
Lord Goring is calling me.
Lord Goring is calling me.
He’s waiting at the grand house.
He’s waiting at the grand house.
Laid out by Henry Wise.
Having tea with Henry Wise.
I’m enchanted by the feeling.
This day…
I’m enchanted by the feeling.
This day…
In Palace Gardens,
In Palace Gardens.

I’m enchanted by the feeling.
This day…
I’m enchanted by the feeling.
This day…
In Palace Gardens,
In Palace Gardens.
Track Name: Can This Black Man Sing The Blues (Bedoya Train Mix)
I ran into this old man.
Who declared today was “Blues Day.”
Who declared yesterday was “Blues Day.”
I asked him, in a vehement tone.
“Man, what you talking „bout?”
He responded, “You know;
“We‟ve‟ been singing the blues for a long time.”
“We‟ve been singing the blues for a long time.”
“I couldn‟t imagine life without these old-tyme hymns”.
“These old-tyme hymns make me feel alive.”
Life, well life;
Wouldn‟t be the same.
Life, well life;
Wouldn‟t be the same.
It‟s our heritage you see.
Our legacy.
From the cotton fields and the lily fields…and the African plains:
Can this black man sing blues?
To Jim Crow and Martin King;
From Martin King to the Katrina waves.
Can this black man sing the blues?
Can this black man sing the blues?
Can this black man sing the blues?

Appaloosa girl,

Appaloosa child,

Stand next to me...

Stand next to me...

Under southern sky:

You drive me wild.



Let’s go to the horse carnival.

Let’s go and have some fun.

Let’s go to the horse carnival.

Under southern sky.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.



Quarter horse running wild.

Quarter horse running free.

Can’t be tamed by the wind;

Under southern sky.

Can’t be tamed by the wind.

You drive me wild.

Let’s go to the horse carnival.

Let’s go and have some fun;

Let’s go to the horse carnival.

Under southern sky.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.



Let’s go to the horse carnival.

Let’s go and have some fun.

Let’s go to the horse carnival.

Under southern sky.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.

She’ll be riding.

May 2010

Life ain’t too shabby in this western town.
Life ain’t too shabby in this western town.

My father farmed land here.
Like his father did.
We lived here organically.
Before Whole Foods brought it to you.

Times are changing way too fast.
We we’re foreclosed too.
It’s a bright and sunny day here too.
It’s a bright and sunny day here too.

Life ain’t too shabby in this western town.
Today…today…I got today.
Life ain’t too shabby in this western…western…western
Today…today…I got today.

Times are changing way too fast.
We we’re foreclosed too.
It’s a bright and sunny day here too.
It’s a bright and sunny day here too.

My father farmed this land.
And his father did too.
Born and raised on this land.
Got married here too.

Life ain’t too shabby in this western town.
Today…Today…I got today.
Life ain’t too shabby in this western town.
It’s a bright and sunny day here too.
Life ain’t too shabby in this western…western…western.
Will you abandon us to?
