about

English,French, Spanish Blues,Roots World Music

"...has his ear to the rest of the world's blues roots, covering African and Spanish numbers as well, showcases for his strong guitar playing. In his understated way, he's a master at these foreign styles as much as he is the North American versions. Hearing his deconstruction of See That My Grave Is Kept Clean is worth the price alone. He's someone who really knows how to breathe fresh life into a too-often staid genre"
Bob Mersereau-The Top 100 Canadian Singles

Track Name: I could be your man
I’m Hopus Hand
I’m Benny the Jew
The boy in the bubble
Little Charlie Trouble

I’m a fish cutter
and a butcher boy
I’m a troubadour
with a pompadour

and I could be, your man
I could be, your man
I could be, your man
You can have me yes you can
what do you wanna know

I’ma doctor of love
and a singer of song
I’m an agitator
\and a revelator

I have magic hands
and a gentle touch
I can toss a salad
my credentials are valid

and I could be, your man
I could be, your man
I could be, your man
You can have me yes you can
what do you wanna know


I’m no Schwarzennegger
with a calculator
no relationship
terminator

I’m a rollinng pin
and a mixing bowl
I’m like Darth Vader
with a Carburetor

and I could be, your man
I could be, your man
I could be, your man
You can have me yes you can
what do you wanna know
Track Name: Love will kick your ass
Love conquers all,
It’s hard and its fast
been around a long time
seen it come to pass\

Seen it come to pass
Seen it come to pass
Love will kick your ass


All of the greatest
Men about town
Every single one’s had
His walls kicked down

Seen it come to pass
Seen it come to pass
Love will kick your ass

Love is heavy magic
And it can make you crazy
A sane guy will loses his mind
When he loses his baby

And then he does things
Even he can’t believe
Love will kick your ass
Take it from me

There is no reason to stop
Following your heart
Life would not be life
If it didn’t smart

Its no easy chase
And its no easy find
But it’s the greatest thing
And it will blow your mind

It will blow your mind and
It will kick your ass
It will kick your ass
Track Name: Pamela, Pamela
Pamela, Pamela
I remember you in the basement
Pamela, Pamela
I remember you in the basement
You had your hair cut like Bettie Page
And the rest was a pretty nice arrangement

It didn’t take much
To get you down the stairs
It didn’t take much
To get you down the stairs
But the whole thing came off
Once we got down there

That was a long time ago,
But it seems like yesterday
That was a long time ago,
But it seems like yesterday
I wonder where you are
And if you still love the same way

Was it the Devil
That put a spell on you
Was it the Devil
That put a spell on you
Or was it just these magic hands
That knew exactly what to do
Track Name: Saggy Baggy Faces
Crinkle lines look better than old tattoos
Souvenirs of smiling eyes
Hunched over blues earned and paid for
marked by a thousand miles

A line by your lips for every flawed reward
For every hard night of crying

Battles lost or drawn or won
Hearts battered or stolen or quartered

Fat old man with no master plan
Can’t think of something to say
Used to have charm I could do a lot of harm
Now I’m just in the way

All the droopy droopy clowns with the saggy baggy faces
And the tear drop stain in your skin
the belly with the jelly and the turtle speed races
Look at the body your in


when I was twenty loved the life in the old eyes
All he droopy droopy fall downs
The old skin was wise now I am too old to see
Past the droopy droopy fall downs

Who’s that in the mirror , old man face looks
Used to love all the old faces,
I stopped looking in the mirror a long time ago
Man I’d like to replace this


All the droopy droopy fall downs, where’s the beauty in that
World wise edge of town skin, 
now its yours and not some cool old guy’s
HOLY COW your hiiiiiiiiiiiiim
