…look who’s lurking around here again…
This is a song from last year that I never posted here,
Usuing the “Southern Rock” band I was thinking of Tom Petty
and the phrase that fit perfectly early on was “hasten down the wind”
I knew that wasn’t my original idea but couldn’t remember who came up
with it, a little research and I rediscovered a really cool song from Warren Zevon
called “Hasten Down the Wind”.
I always intended to re-record this to polish it and make it better,
just never got around to it. I don’t have any new songs, haven’t written anything
in over seven months…you’re welcome.
Enjoy it, rip it, critic it,
Thanks for the listens and comments,
Kenny

All There Is
© 2017 Kenny Leverett

On an old dirt road
From an Arkansas shack
One day she started walking
And she never looked back

Well she didn't tell her Mama
Didn't think that she'd be missed
Just slipped on out the back door
Didn't even blow a kiss

Cause it's more of where you're going
Than all of where you've been
Gotta keep on moving forward
And hasten down the wind

Well she knows a lonely boy
Who's angry at this world
And she gets her life all tangled up with his
And she's thinking to herself
As they drive off thru the dust
Maybe this is all there is
She thinks maybe this is all there is

She remembers as a girl
Waking from dreaming in the night
One day my life will all work out right
Now she's thinking to herself
Driving south thru the rain and mist
Maybe this is all there is

He left her standing by a Quik Stop
In a run down Texas town
Said he's going to California
And he'd hate to drag her down

She just crossed the street to a cafe
Didn't even blow a kiss
Started serving truckers coffee
Thinking maybe this is all there is

She says maybe this is all there is

HEY!

So good to hear from you. Hope all has been well in your absence. And your absence hasn't gone unnoticed. Love hearing that gritty voice again - smiling from ear to ear, my friend. Welcome back!

Great song and delivery - doesn't need any polishing. Sounds almost like a live performance. Lyric and guitar are spot on. This might be "raw" but it's a perfect fit for the song.

Liked this couplet in particular:

Just slipped on out the back door
Didn't even blow a kiss

Man, that paints, such a vivid picture and says so much in so few words. Also love how you ended on the IV chord.

This was an unexpected but very welcome treat. Totally loved it! Again, welcome back.

Alan

Nice to hear from you. A good solid rocker delivered in your gritty trademark manner.
Good set of lyrics - good band and excellent delivery.
Very enjoyable. Sounds like it's time to write a few more?

Hi there Kenny!

Good to see you back and what a track to signal your arrival
back on the scene.

And whoa yes, this is classic Petty and the Heartbreakers from the opening chord.
I've been a Tom Petty fan since he kicked off in the mid 70s and this is like the song
which he never got round to writing.

A fabulous track, classic vocals, superb guitars, a super-hot mix.

What's not to like.

Hope you get back to writing again soon - we need more of this.

ROG.

Great to see you back where you belong!

ANOTHER killer song!

A strong write - very cool - start to finish. SUPERIOR Rock writing. So natural, so vivid.

The band is perfect. Excellent mix.

As always, your vocals are extraordinary.

This is excellent music all around.

Kenny,
There`s no mistaking that gravelly voice! Welcome back - this has all the hallmarks of your best work - a strong, emotional lyric, driving beat and a live sounding mix ( fanatastic guitar solo!).
Superior American rock.
Stick around now, ok?

"She remembers as a girl

Now she's thinking to herself

There is so much goodness in that entire lyric....

Great to see you here. Oh yeah, man, been missing that rootsy/country/rockAmericana vibe and voice and guitar.

Re-record? Polish? Hell no, leave it like it is!

Don't waste a signature sound...more!! Soon!!

As always the mix is pro level on the monitors.

Well done!

J&B

Excellent write, well sung, good arrangement, clear mix. It's got that "classic rock" sound.

Great stuff.

Now I've got to go have a listen to some Zevon. smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Really cool.
Good narrative, good arrangement and a hurt vocal delivery meet to make a really good song.
There are some splosive/essing issues that may be related to the reverb but I'm hyper sensitive to those things and most folk don't notice them so ignore my obs easily enough.
Good stuff, good song great package.


Cheers
