fair smart air heart


On the road – foto Smith

Haven’t recorded a song for a couple months. Figured why try, what with the world ending yesterday morning and all, but it wasn’t a very good apocalypse since we’re still here so I figured may as well jam again with Peter Ball and we did this – 45 minutes from recording start to edit finish.

Best I can classify it is ruff-rock cuz I’m rough while the music rocks.

It’s been a fair where and I’ve had a few was
but the sparks still arc in this life because
my here to there is to steer clear of fear
no goal but to be and try to re-see

I try to be fair, to keep my step smart
my head in the air and start from the heart

Of course I’ll fail but what a fun trip
seems I’m but blip, a bump on the trail
so that’s my tale since losing my tail
stopping the ale, accepting my flail

I try to be fair, to keep my step smart
my head in the air and start from the heart

My story line has more ups and downs
and surreal clowns than most ever found
went the wrong way yet ended up right
what can I say I’m blessed with the light

I try to be fair, to keep my step smart
my head in the air and I start from the heart

been a fair wear . . .
wrong way bound . . .
go anywhere . . .
never been found . . .
