LIFE DON'T GET NO BETTER 

© 2019 Chuck Klein

Building dams down by the crick 
And houses up in the trees 
Life Just Don’t Get No Better 
Until my pappy give me a lick 
Forgettin’ ta say ma’am and please
 
Puppy love with guardian angels above 
Teens and cars with three carbs 
And that first kiss 
Life Don’t Get No Better Than This
 
We had three boys, one didn’t survive 
David Scott is in a better place than us 
Thus, onto a farm where again was bliss 
Life Don’t Get No Better Than This
 
Too many I’m sorrys and woes 
And for sale the farm goes 
Single and in the big city 
I found my soul mate and fate echoed again, 
Life Just Don’t Get No Better
 
This pretty miss once we dated 
In high school I told her I’d call  
It took 30 years but there were no tears. 
Life Don’t Get No Better Than This
 
Our children’s children 
Build dams down by the crick 
And houses out in the trees as we reminisce 
Life Just Don’t Get No Better Than This

I'VE BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD BEFORE

© 2019 Chuck Klein

 
I’ve been down this road before 
I’ve been down this road before
But you ain’t gonna find me on the floor
‘cuz I’ve been down this road before
 
Saw the future in her blue eyes
Back before I could hear the lies
My heart was hurtin’ that’s for certain
I just wasn’t wise
 
My best friend was the warnin’
When I caught ‘em this mornin’
Doin’ what she said was only mine
Though for her I’ll always pine
 
I’ve been down this road before
I’ve been down this road before
But you ain’t gonna find me on the floor
‘cuz I’ve been down this road before
 
Now she says she wants another fling
That’ll make my pumper sing
That she loves me through and thru
Oh, but those lyin’ eyes of blue
 
I’ve been down this road before
I’ve been down this road before
But you ain’t gonna find me on the floor
‘cuz I’ve been down this road before
 
I had way Too many shots of Jack
And maybe a little smack
Found me on the floor
Ain’t goin’ down this road no more
 
I’ve been in a haze for days
‘cept I’m over her clever ways
Met a lady with green eyes
And I know they’ll be no lies
 
I’ve been down this road before
But now I’m up off the floor
And I ain’t goin’ down no more.

SHADOWS OF MY MIND

© Chuck Klein, 2019
Demo coming soon
 

Melded to the shadows of my mind
I’ll always see her dancing
On a soft summer breeze in the cyclone of winter
In the shadows of my mind
 
Way back in … high-school-you-wrote
Of the books … I-could-tote
I just wanted … to-hold-hands
While we listened … to-juke-box-bands
 
If there was … a-love-forever-store
I’d put you … in-my-shopping-cart
‘cuz you’ll always be … forever-in-my-heart
If tomorrow is never … I’ll-love-you-forever
 
Melded to the shadows of my mind
I’ll always see her dancing
On a soft summer breeze in the cyclone of winter
In the shadows of my mind
 
Was it in … the-bed-of-my-truck
That we so … trusted-to-luck
I really do hope … it’s-a-boy
‘cuz I’ve already … picked-out-a-toy
 
We were … two-of-a-kind
So lucky … were-we-to-find
In the … senti-men-tal-portions
Of the … shadows-of-our-mind
 
Life can be … cruel- and-tort-
Even for … the-very-virt-
I know … we’ll-be-together-again
When we … get-to-the-other- side
 
Melded to the shadows of my mind
I’ll always see her dancing
On a soft summer breeze in the cyclone of winter
In the shadows of my mind
 
On the other side … I-know-we’ll-see
It’ll just be … you-and-me
Dancing on a soft summer breeze
In the shadows of our minds
 
After all that … tomorrow-had-arrived
Stumbling and … walker-assisted,
To view the … tombstone-scripted
If tomorrow is never … I’ll-love-you-forever
 
Melded to the shadows of my mind
I’ll always see her dancing
On a soft summer breeze in the cyclone of winter
In the shadows of my mind
