I Cannot Write Love Song 

Snippets from a work in progress:

Satan caught me at the river
When the surge was running high
He said I could walk on water
We watched the world go washing by

He said "Pity not the wretched refuse
On their backs you will survive"
Gave to me a watch of silver
With no numbers there inscribed

We stood above the rising raging
This to me he did confide:
"I can make most any man do my bidding
But I cannot write a love song"

Stay tuned for more - if you're interested, that is.

We here at the House Of Strays wish you a pleasant, productive (however you define it) week. Thanks for checking in here, and for supporting independent musicians and itinerant songwriters....

Here's a tune from my first CD Wills And Won'ts. Please enjoy.

    Looks like another winner coming on! And the tune "Hard Luck" from a while back, still makes me grin and tap my feet.

    Made me cry...although these days it seems as though everything makes me cry...and then life goes on...no commas, no periods just...?
