Old Blue Truck

Old Blue Truck features ten original songs from folk rock to psychobilly to heartbreaking ballads. Every song evokes a distinct reaction: a sense of the familiar, a touch of nostalgia, compassion or mystery. And always a greater appreciation for life.

Lyrics for each cut:

1. Bobby & Me
2. Cherokee Girl
3. Old Blue Truck
4. Highway 105
5. Great Big Moon
6. Sam's Song
7. Medicine Road
8. I Knew She Was Wild
9. The Lost Highway
10. Save a Dance for Me

Thanks to Brock Zeman for getting us into his Mud Music recording studio. If not for his persistence, this album would probably still be just the vague idea of something I might do someday. Thanks as well to the musicians who played on these songs, Steve for a great mixing job, Michael for the great cover art, and to all my readers who've been asking for this album over the years. This one's for MaryAnn. We met through music and we'll be playing together until they pry our instruments from our hands.
