I have mentioned before that my songwriting journey began with the simplistic templates of solid, run-of-the-mill country music. Accompanied by a few newly discovered country tunes from my hiatus on mainstream, this lyric from Thomas Rhett’s Country Again has been particularly relatable for me lately on drives to and from Cornelius & Kannapolis.

I traded in my Silverado
Didn’t need no four by four
Tucked my boots in the back of the closet
They didn’t feel like me no more
But I dug ’em out and slipped ’em on
They’ve been on my feet since then
Man, it feels good to be country again

‘Country Again’ | Thomas Rhett

… for years I have latently lamented goodwill-ing the perfect pair of Ariat’s I wore to California once I got there and was spelled by the West Coast haze. I have since garnered a $30 pair to fill in while I wait for the right time to invest in a replacement pair of ‘real’, ‘big-girl’ cowboy boots. In the meantime, this vegan leather find {ha} has stood the test of southern summer thunder storms.


Among a few amusing musings I recently stumbled upon in old digital journal entries, I came across this snippet from a Berkeley jam session, featuring a cameo by the song subject’s brother. I find it just as hilarious now as my laughter relays in the recording from at least seven years ago.

I dusted off the song we were rehearsing, cleaned up the lyrics a little bit, and stitched a demo to the cameo of #JoelBeingHelpful … enjoy!


‘All Day’

IT AIN’T FAIR TO ALL THE OTHER MEN
ALL IT TAKES
IS A COUPLE OF WORDS AND I’M YOURS AGAIN

I TELL MYSELF
YOU’RE JUST A MUSE THAT I OUTGREW
I KEEP TURNING THE PAGE, AND STILL,
MY JOURNAL ENTRIES SEEM TO FAVOR YOU

I COULD SPEND ALL DAY
FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU AGAIN
I AIN’T EVEN SEEN YOUR FACE
OR INHALED THE SMOKE THAT SETTLES IN YOUR BEARD

BUT I COULD SPEND ALL DAY
FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU AGAIN

IT AIN’T FAIR
FOR YOU TO TIE MY HEART UP IN YOUR STRINGS
IF YOU DON’T CARE
QUIT COMING AROUND TO STRUM MELODIES

CAUSE I MET SOMEBODY NEW,
BUT HE DON’T KNOW ME LIKE YOU DO
AND I’M SCARED THAT HE WON’T EVER GET THE CHANCE
IF I KEEP HOLDING ON TO YOU

CAUSE I COULD SPEND ALL DAY
FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU AGAIN
I AIN’T EVEN SEEN YOUR FACE
OR INHALED THE SMOKE THAT SETTLES IN YOUR BEARD

BUT I COULD SPEND ALL DAY
FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU AGAIN

I COULD SPEND ALL DAY
FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU AGAIN
