On the Georgia Bulldog Les Paul.  It's Saturday in Athens. I'm with the Lovely Ramona

Wednesday Song

Wed, 11/18/2015 - 11:11pm -- mjpierce

I had my mind changed just the other day
The other one was growing mold
I had my blood let on a sunny day
Is it supposed to be this cold?

Whoa Whoa Whoa

I really hoped it wouldn't be this way
I don't have time to give away
One solution is to stay up late
And make the time to sing and play...

Mr Candy Man

Hey There Mr. Candy Man
What flavors do you have on Saturday Morning?

Have you something for those feeling distorted?

Tell me how the cat's meow
Can feed the poor with puppy chow
That shouldn't stop you now.

Hey There Mr Candy Man
What stories did you bring that we were exploring

Story-telling time that we were ignoring

Tell me how to free my brain
From the chemtrail's acid rain
Was it all inSane?


Talking Rock

Tue, 06/30/2015 - 9:46pm -- mjpierce

From 2005

Talking Rock is on my mind; a simpler place, simpler time
Talking Rock is not hard to find; I close my eyes, and Church bells chime.

Talking Rock a different time, when I was young, unrefined
Talking Rock remembers me, when I go there, a jubilee

Sovereign Citizen

Wed, 06/17/2015 - 10:20pm -- mjpierce

I rented a Toyota, and I took it to the sand.
I did not need permission of any woman or any man.
Don't know where you'll find me, but I'll tell you where I'm not
On a beach chair relaxing, drinking beer and smoking pot.

You don't own me.

I command you.

I'm a Sovereign Citizen

You know who this is for

Uncle Same

Mon, 02/23/2015 - 7:31am -- mjpierce

It was Daytona in my pickup truck,
In the same year that the terrorists struck

Even now I think about the man
And remember where those buildings stand

Took some time before we'd find out
It was Uncle Sam, that planned it out, and without a doubt, has a plan to get me and you.


She got my chakra

I write a song it can't be wrong
I'm living with the girl that I made a vow to
Feeling like I kept the promises made

She was young and I was poppin
we were in love and there was no stoppin'
I sometimes wondered why she was leading me on

She won my heart with her mashed potatoes
We always laughed she was scared of tornados
Sitting on the back porch during a storm


Wishing Well 2015

Tue, 01/06/2015 - 8:51pm -- mjpierce

There was a time I tried to write rock operas.  I'm gonna try again in 2015

Waiting on the perfect day
You'll see life just slip away
When I'm wishing in the well
I like to ride the carousel

When I'm coming on softly,
And I couldn't afford to be vague

Wasted Bleeding Heart

Sun, 12/21/2014 - 8:00pm -- mjpierce

Just noodlin' around

Some days were meant to be wasted.
I'm just trying to do my part

Meditate in deep concentration
And all my shit's in a shopping cart
