Country Takeover

(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.

Well, there ain't much changed From that drifter named Luke Just a little faster paced and that's all The feeling's the same Hearts that love and then break Some get lifted 'way from love and some fall But from the old heartland To spots across the pond You'll see everybody moving their feet Some'll clap their hands As they sing along Guess they caught themselves an ol' country beat (Chorus) Well, it won't wait on ya A country takeover Better hurry up and give it a whirl The heart of mainstream, from sea to shining sea Country's taking over the world From state to state Highways to interstates To every flag of every color and stripe Some will hesitate Some will celebrate This little thing we live that's called life Some XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX X XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX X XXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX X XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX

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.

Zum Songtext


By Brian Hendrix

I really liked the way this turned out. It's fun to sing too, with different inflections of "Sunshine" at the start of each sentence. As far as the writing, I think it does well to paint a picture of a world without sunshine, especially when it's revealed what "sunshine" is.

Der Text handelt von einem Zauberort. Ein Ort, an dem man sich rundherum wohlfühlt und den man am liebsten nie wieder verlassen möchte. Sein eigenes kleines Paradies, in dem man alle Sorgen vergisst und wo es einfach wunderschön ist.
