Spinning My Wheels

8. Spinning my Wheels: Some songs take an hour to write, some take a week and some take a year. This one took 20 years (or longer). I had to live it first, get good and fed up with myself and eventually learn that the hardest person to forgive is your self. I think that’s what this song is about, and maybe, in another 20 years, I’ll know for sure. Special ‘Thanks’ to my buddy Woody Moran for suggesting I record this one 2 years after I’d written it, forgotten it and left it for dead on the side of the highway somewhere out in the desert. He saw something in it I couldn't see yet...

I'm Comin' Home

9. I’m Comin’ Home: I bought a pair of emerald earrings for a girl once partially because she had emerald eyes and partly because I’m a hopeless romantic and I believed that everything would work out between us. Of course I’m older now so I know that things don’t always work out, especially not the way you think it will. That ‘girl’ is older now too and she’s told me more than once that she never takes off her ‘Emeralds’. Sometimes when I’m halfway across the country I whisper her name to the four walls of my motel room in the dead of night and think “everything’s gonna work out when I get home”. This is for you Suzanne… Special ‘Thanks’ to Sean McGowan and Woody Moran (for the chorus suggestions), and BIG Thanks to ALL the wonderful people (Brad, Jim, Dennis, Lynn, etc.) at the Sisters Folk Festival & the Americana Songwriting Academy. You folks will always be ‘Home’ to me… Lyrics Available online at www.danwebermusic.com Contact Dan at: www.danwebermusic.com www.facebook.com/danwebermusic All Songs © & P Daniel Weber 2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP) All Right’s Reserved.

5. Cowboy Style

Cowboy Style

5. Cowboy Style: Gene Autry made 93 movies. As of this writing I’ve seen 83 of them. They’re all exactly the same, and yet completely different. One of my favorite things to do is to spend a perfectly good Sunday afternoon with a grilled cheese sandwich an ice cold Miller High-Life down in the basement watching some old Western. I’m not real particular so if I’ve seen it before I’ll probably watch it again. I may even sneak a little nap in. The thing is, as I’ve gotten older I appreciate the simplicity of Old West---or at least the one that’s portrayed on the silver screen. There are good guys and bad guys and still something to be said for honesty, integrity, a ‘code’ of sorts, occasionally drinking whiskey for breakfast, and always tipping your hat to a pretty girl. So I wrote this like you’d write a ‘Will’, sort of instructions of what I’d like my friends to do when my time has come. Head up Highway 142 about 10 miles, bring my guitar and a little bourbon. Go another mile past the bridge, then up the dirt drive on the left. The rest is up to you. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, ‘John 5:28’ in the New King James Version is: “Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice.” That was pure serendipity… This is dedicated to Jessica and Matt in Tucson, AZ, and with a big tip of my Stetson to their Dad ‘Bob’. R.I.P. Cowboy.

7. Do You Ride Horses

Do You Ride Horses

4. Do You Ride Horses: I met an older woman in her house one day and looking around she had pictures all over the walls, family photos mostly. There were lots in black and white and a number of them had her husband Jim, sitting up on his horse. She also had a coat rack full of Jim’s old Stetson hats---beaver, wool, and straw. She asked me ‘Are you a cowboy? “Umm, no Maam” ‘Well, Do You Ride Horses?’ Then she told me Jim’s story. The story takes place in one of my favorite places, the Southeast corner of the Oregon desert, where it comes together with Idaho and Nevada, down near the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge. It’s wide open sagebrush country, the sort of place you can get lost just being there. It’s also beautiful in the late afternoon light on that desolate 2 lane stretch of Highway 140, coming around a curve, and seeing a herd of wild horses, still running free… Special ‘Thanks’ to Roland Brown’ for telling me “Dan, that might have been the best song I heard all festival” then asked kindly “if there’s one line---just one line---I’d ask you to consider changing it’d be the last one”…So I did, because Roland was right and the line was wrong. And to Jonathan Byrd who told me at 3am just after I’d written it ‘Bull’s-eye!’ Thanks Gentlemen!

8. What I'm Lookin' For

What I'm Lookin' For

2. What I’m Lookin’ For: I probably spend too much daydreaming about moving to the country, or some idyllic small town, where the pace of life is slower, you might get to know your neighbors, and you can still see the Milky Way at night. But I do, because frankly in our increasingly high-tech ‘connected’ world I feel more and more ‘disconnected’ by the seemingly endless barrage of new technology that I can’t possibly keep up with. I hear people extol the virtue of being able to access all of their computer data anywhere at anytime and I usually think: I want to get it the car and go someplace where I CAN’T access it, and listen to the birds sing for a while. Then again, I also like hand written letters and reading an actual newspaper, so maybe I’ve already become a curmudgeon. This song is a bit of a ‘Mission Statement’ for me. Half a dozen years ago in a twist of fate, I happened to come upon a piece of land up Highway 142 in Klickitat, WA. I camp out there occasionally and always on the Winter Solstice, in the snow or whatever the longest night of the year brings. There’s a lovely view of the canyon, up and down the river, a seasonal creek that runs through a mix of Oregon White Oaks and Ponderosa Pines and blissfully, really spotty cell phone service. You can see ALL the stars at night and hear the Klickitat River when you close your eyes. In the morning, I sit on a rickety old picnic bench halfway up the hill; listen to the birds waking up, and dream of some day sitting on my own front porch at that very spot… Lyrics Available online at www.danwebermusic.com Contact Dan at: www.danwebermusic.com www.facebook.com/danwebermusic All Songs © & P Daniel Weber 2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP) All Right’s Reserved.
