Two songs that I wrote many moons ago, but still like to play. I added a piano track on each. I think that Moontides Over the Water is one of my best. The other one is called She Looks and Tells Me, and I wrote it like a dramatic country western song, which it is. It tells a little story of a short love affair.

Moontides Over the Water 

Good and Evil side by side

Fill up all the lanes on the superhighway

You drive your truck as fast you can

Into the night ’til you make it home

It’s moontides

Over the waters

 

Police siren in the night

Wakes you up and you throw off the blanket

Baby stirs so gently in her sleep

Says to you Baby what’s the matter?

I said it’s moontides…

 

Now, I got a woman and she’s good as gold

Together we’re gonna walk that highway

It don’t matter if it’s rain or cold

Outside a cloud blows across the moon

moontides…….

 

Talkin in the here and now

Talkin in the everpresent

We just keep on walkin somehow

Into the night ’til we make it home

And it’s moontides over the waters moontides over the waters

 

She Looks and Tells Me

She looks and tells me that we shouldn’t get started

It can’t work out and she don’t want to cry

I’d only leave her broken-hearted

And there would be no reason why

I said Baby come into my arms and trust me

Baby every thing you say is true

But if we love each other then something must be right

Baby I just want to stay here with you

 

That’s the way the whole thing started

Called you on the phone, or was it you called me?

I said lady I’ll be coming over after work

I did not hear you disagree

You said baby come into my arms and trust me

Baby everything we say is true

And if we love each other then something must be right

And baby I want to stay here with you

 

Couple of weeks the thing had lost it’s sting

i found myself standing by the door

Baby standing there looking in my eyes

She said baby I know you’re not coming back no more

I said baby come into my arms and trust me

Baby everything we said was true

It didn’t quite work out, I’m sorry about that

I just wanted to stay here with you
