A British lieutenant who lived in a tent
Was pissed he could not get a farmer’s consent
To be his loo tenant.
Alas! This lieutenant
With his monthly pension could not pay the rent…

Now that Chris Almoada and I have declared all the songs we’ve written since the release of our On the Great River Road album (2014), I have updated my Lyrics by LividEmerald Facebook page to include the song lyrics not previously published there. You’ll find 62 songs in all!
If you find a song whose lyrics you especially like, would you kindly “like” it?

A world apart. A four-part limerick…
Doug Pruitt, a student, complained, “I miss Dinah!
She’s spending another semester in China.”
He picked up his shovel.
“I swear that my love’ll
Go nowhere by staying in North Carolina.”
I tried really hard to discourage Doug Pruitt.
“The earth is too big, Doug! You’ll never dig through it!”
But Doug began digging,
And zagging and zigging,
He worked his way down. He was sure he could do it.
So blinded by love that he lost his direction,
Doug Pruitt just shrugged, “I don’t aim for perfection!”
A left turn, a right turn…
You’d think that it might earn
Much more than a shrug and a slight course correction!
And now while he’s digging his hole I am sitting
Or sleeping above him (the weather permitting).
I can’t help but wonder
How far he’s dug under.
There’s no chance in hell that Doug Pruitt is quitting!

I have been neglecting WordPress lately because I’m busy writing lyrics, and collaborating with Chris Almoada on the creation of a Facebook rockabilly songwriting page. We are also producing a short promotional video (finalized 8/15/2017) to be published on YouTube. Our tentative launch date has now been pushed back to October 1st. Once we’ve launched, I’ll probably delete this post, and post a link to our Facebook page so you can have a look at it. Mainly, I do not wish anyone to think I’ve abandoned ship.
