A little history...
6 years ago, Tom and I did our first co-write.
By pure coincidence, it was posted on March 4th - which it turns out is our birthday. BOTH of us!
We have done a "birthday song" every year since.
So, now... a little more (of our) history... I WANT YOU TO KNOW ME
like jimmy i found florida at it's very best
clean gulf waters, a loose lauderdale, a sleepy, slow key west
then the rock'n'roll bars of new york and philly called my name
i talked to movers and shakers and record men tryin' to fan that flame
when country turned it's head towards a sound i knew
i found myself headed there to take in that view
spent years hanging with the best of the best in guitar town
taking turns strumming our tales in a bluebird round
i don't usually tell these stories
i'm not one to live past glories
they stay on the shelf
i keep to myself
i let the rainbow be
you want to open up the mystery
lift the curtian, know my history
every road town and trail
down to the smallest detail
it might come slowly
but i want you to know me
west virginia to ohio and then on to chicago
drinking in all the urban blues from a late night radio
northern illinois to southern illinois then down to tennessee
kept heading south until i found the country side of me
hooked up down in florida with a hardcore working band
nashville called and made their pitch but we didn't give a damn
all those years opening up for big acts and touring stars
made up for wasted weekend nights in rowdy roadhouse bars.
we followed the music
it's in our bones
we did it all for a song
and here we are
when it's all said and done
it lead us right where we belong
