Almost Gone

(Brian Hendrix)

My girlfriend will not be pleased I posted this here. It's her favorite song of mine that I've written. It's a western-style song, about a charlatan, a con artist, living in the old west before modernity settled in during the early 1900s. This guy runs his scams as a preacher, using saloon girls, to outright robbery, and realizes that the "west" he knows is almost gone. I really enjoy this song. Out of all I've ever written, it's my #2 favorite song. I don't want anyone else to have it, but it's time...

I ply my trade from town to town Helpin’ all who are sinnin’ Curing everything that ails And tryin’ to hide out from the brigands Got some gold in the wagon They don’t need to know about Hiding shotguns in the cabin Leave at night, go further south And I might be in Tombstone by the morning… (Chorus) Oh, dusty roads, those westward trails Saddle up your fastest horse, it’s time to ride Those dancing girls, they never fail Hitch up to your post and walk inside Have a drink on me, let’s sing a song It won’t be long The west is almost gone Saw a man hanged down in Dodge He weren’t bad but stole a pony And his final words still haunt me “Betty, you’re my one and only” And they chased me up through Deadwood Thought I conned some 49ers Like when Bill fired o’er his wife Thought that I had been inside her But XXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXX X XXX XX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX X XXXX XX XX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXX XX XXXX XX XXX XXX XX XXXXXXXX XXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXX XX XX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XX XXXX XX XXXXXX X XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX

Country Takeover

By Brian Hendrix


I started writing this song when I was 19, in '99, and found it folded up on a piece of paper in an old book when I was doing some cleaning. I only had the chorus, but a note at the bottom of the page said "Give it a whirl," which is part of the lyrics. I decided to finish it up, after all these years. The song is really about how similar we all are, no matter where we come from, and how we all have a life to live, so live it while we still can. It's a chorus-driven song, even though the chorus isn't very long. In my head it sounds like Keith Urban singing it, for what it's worth.

On My Way to Leave You

By Brian Hendrix


This started as a talking blues song, with every forth line saying "On my way to leave you," but it ended up sounding too much like Townes' "Dollar Bill Blues" in cadence. So I reworked it here. It has a bit more of a talking-blues song cadence but certainly doesn't have to. It's about a guy who wants to leave his woman but can't bring himself to do it, so he gets around this by ensuring himself that today's the day... though he keeps finding excuses not to leave.

America Strong

By Brian Hendrix


A song I wrote to rally against the idea of collectivism, in any form, be it on the right or left, as it has wrought much pain and damage and millions upon millions dead. This is a song that speaks about the strength of individualism that stands for America. It's more anthem-themed. When it opens, it's a chant. "Ohh, ohh, ohh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh--oh-oh, ohh, oh-oh, ohh, oh-oh." Then after every line, I imagine a bit of a clap, or a thump on a bass drum, twice. E.g. "We stand up (boom, boom) We don't kneel (boom, boom)." I think people can get the gist when they read it.

It's Fine

By Brian Hendrix


This is definitely a throwback to the days of olden country. The "chorus" in this song is basically a few bars of guitar while speaking "I said it's fine." More than anything, think of this as a talking-blues sort of song. It's guided very much by a rhythmic cadence that evokes something like an old Johnny Cash tune, though the lyrics are all mine.

Corina

By Georg Wagner (GeWa)


Jede Ähnlichkeit mit Corona ist beabsichtigt. Corina hat das Dorf genau so überrollt, wie Corona die ganze Welt. Bleibt zu hoffen, dass Isolation bei Corona genau so wirksam ist, wie bei Corina.

I Gotta Tell You

By Karianne Gabaldon


These lyrics are about me trying to express my feelings for a guy I’ve been talking to. He calls me babe and tells me he wants me, but doesn’t want to be exclusive. I really want him as more than a friend with benefits and I know it’s hard for me to have relationships but somehow I feel this will be the end of my searching. Now I just have to tell the guy how I feel, which is very hard considering I don’t want to jeopardize what we already have. Anyways, I hope you enjoy it and if you’re going through the same predicament, feel free to buy it!
