Caged Bird 03:49
Caged Bird I know why the caged bird sings longing for the things just beyond her reach I know why the light at dawn can be mournful when you know it’s time to move on. just beyond where the eye can see just beyond where the mind can be free i have spent lonely days trying to understand the way but i come up empty i have asked inside a dream what’s my reason or my worth for being ust beyond where the eye can see just beyond where the mind can be free

Buffalo Bayou Let me take you to the place I love to go, In the country down by the valley below. They call it Buffalo Bayou, A place where our love can grow. I’m longing to be there by you. Where the water flows. From my window you can see Tennessee. With her green trees far as the eye can see.   We're almost to Buffalo Bayou A place where our love can grow. I’m longing to be there by you. Where the water flows. We followed the path through the forest to the water so blue A 1000 starlings took flight as I reached out for you. You took my hand, and you said follow me. to a land where our love be can roam free.

Solo un Goccio solo un goccio un goccio di speranza dammi questo che posso galleggiar richiedo poco un piccolo sorriso mi bastera’ un goccio per potere volar. solo un grano dentro i miei pensieri un bel sollievo un grano bastera’ cosi’ coltivo il piccolo germoglio poi tutto quel che voglio un bel giorno verra’ non ci vuole molto per continuare sognare e cantare della gioia che verra’ mi cambiera’ la vita della gioia che verra’ riempiera’ la vita

Summer in Austin All week long they’ve been predicting hurricane winds and 3 days of rain. Yesterday the wind started blowing, dark clouds moved in but the rain never came. Summer in Austin this year it gets so lonesome when no one is near life has changed from how we remember perhaps come December we’ll be close again. Some old friends have gone by the wayside then unexpectedly some have stepped in out the window the wide world’s in trouble it’s time to redouble some good will again Summer in Austin this year some days fill up like a bucket of tears life has changed from how we remember perhaps come December we’ll be close again.

Lean to Me Only talk to me of the beauty that you feel and the song you hear that is real Only show me shadows that fall through the trees as we talk, take my hand, walk me all of the jasmine is blooming tonight the rain has stopped the air is cool and i love you only take me into the night where every breath is sweet lean to me lean to me

Old New York 03:57
Old New York It was a perfect early Fall day the day we met to say Hello Bright rays shining off the concrete cement and steel we used to know Old New York Silent sidewalks in the morning cuz everyone sleeps late in Old New York a little bit of blue sky framed by the buildings steep it’s clean somewhere up high above the garbage in the street

Rayito de Luna Como un rayito de luna Entre la selva dormida Asi la luz de tus ojos ha iluminado Mi pobre vida Tu diste luz al sendero En mi noche sin fortuna Iluminando mi cielo como un rayito Claro de Luna Rayito de luna blanca Que iluminas mi camino Asi es tu amor en mi vida La verdad de mi destino Tu diste luz al sendero En mi noche sin fortuna Iluminando mi cielo como un rayito Claro de Luna

When the Rain Falls Down All my life I’ve loved the Sunshine Texas made me love the rain wild wild wind lets my spirit fly Picks me up when the Rain Falls Down Picks me up when the Rain Falls Down Picks me up when the Rain Falls Down Bamboo knockin on my window Bird sings out the warning song dark clouds roll in covering up the Sun Picks me up when the Rain Falls Down Picks me up when the Rain Falls Down Picks me up when the Rain Falls Down

Manhã de Carnaval Manhã, tão bonita manhã De um dia feliz que chegou O sol no céu surgiu E em cada cor brilhou Voltou o sonho então Ao coração Depois deste dia feliz Não sei se outro dia haverá É nossa manhã, tão bela afinal Manhã de carnaval Canta o meu coração A alegria voltou, tão feliz A manhã desse amor

about

LEAN TO ME

By late Spring of 2020, I’d cancelled my tours and all my local shows, I was wondering what to do with my life. My friend Kullen Fox said, “Why don’t we record your new songs?” and thus began the project of making “Lean to Me”.

We started tracking at his Karhole Recording studio in New Braunfels, TX and the creativity and energy sparked. By Autumn, my friend Patrick Sansone got involved. He added a few new colors to the painting, and mixed each song at his Tiny Door Studio in Nashville,TN. Friends Jason Mercer (in Wolfe Island, Canada) and Bob Hoffnar (here in Austin) put some banjo and pedal steel onto a couple songs, and in Spring of 2021 the record was mixed, mastered and finished.

I decided to call the album “Lean to Me” because it was the first song I wrote during this period, and I felt it conveyed the feeling of wanting to be close to loved ones during the strange time of isolation. Working with my friends on this recording project was a beacon of joy for me!
