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.

repeat CHORUS

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

repeat CHORUS

Man, this has it all! Very engaging write, great story made even better 'cause it's real!

Vocals are wonderful and band is great too, nice hearing some licks from Tom in there. The mix is perfect, listened first through the monitors, then through the 'phones.

Happy birthday Floyd and Tom!

I knew this was coming from previous years,

wow, what a treat!

it might come slowly
but i want you to know me

I want to know about you two guys (without prying)

you're both super interesting, very talented, obviously veterans of the trade (pros)

(same goes for J&B)

spent years hanging with the best of the best in guitar town
taking turns strumming our tales in a bluebird round

great lines, they make me smile!

I hear Tom's fine guitar work, nice and tasteful

northern illinois to southern illinois then down to tennessee
kept heading south until i found the country side of me

love those lines

This is my new favorite song, Happy Birthday to you both!!!

Kenny

FJ @ Crew!
First of all, Happy birthdays! Stay healthy and inspired!

Great collaboration and tradition idea. Love choruses lyrics, pedal steel, overall feel is bright and energetic. Easy listen. Mix is great (at least to my amateur ears smile ).

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Hey there Floyd, I really enjoyed the overall tone of this. The arrangement is wonderful to the ears and the vibe is very appealing. That organ really helps piece it all together. Fantastic work on the vocals too. Keep it up!

Wow - you guys did an amazing job! Very engaging and nicely catchy, and has some real sincerity behind it. You can almost hear that it was fun to make. A great groove that got my toe tapping right away too, and the mixing job is professional and top notch also.

You two should be proud - thanks for sharing smile
