Sometimes I get sad
Get to feeling so bad
But I don’t know why
So I look up to the sky

Doesn’t matter what’s wrong
I just pray to be strong
Ask the Lord to help me
I know He’s what I need

Oh Lord I need you
I’m feeling so blue
Times are hard and
I don’t know what to do
But I know you hear me
and I know you can see
Lift me from this despair
I’m begging you please
Things are just so rough
and I need to be tough
Amen

I give it up to God
It helps me a lot
Feel better right away
He brightens my day

He is the real deal
has the power to heal
so I reach for His hand
ev’ry now and then, and, I pray…

(Chorus)

I know you hear me
and I know you can see
Lift me from this despair
I’m begging you please
Things are just so rough
and I need to be tough
Amen

Amen

(Verse)
I’ve watched you from a distance
I’ve seen you so many times
I’ve struggled with my heart’s resistance
just couldn’t make up my own mind. But…

(Chorus)
I really want to meet you
to talk a little while too
I’d like to get to know you
It’s really all I want to do

(Verse)
My heart beats wild when you are near
and I get cold sweats too
Darlin to me it’s so clear
I just need to be with you. So…

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
One day I’m gonna have the nerve
I’ll introduce myself to you
Hope you don’t throw me to the curb
Don’t make me feel the fool. Cause…

(Chorus)

(End)
Yeah, all I want to do

All I Want To Do

Was a long time ago we found each other
Sometimes it seems like just yesterday
All the ups and downs we’ve had since together
We shared them all, we’ve come a long way

It’s been quite a ride through all these years
Built good memories and our whole family
Our road has been filled with laughter and tears
In all that we’ve done, in all that we’ve seen

All these years we’ve had together
All these years we’ve had to grow
All these years we can remember
all the wondrous things we’ve known
No one can take away all the good and bad we’ve been through
And darling, I’m still in love with you
After all these years

There was a good reason we gave vows and rings
There’s been so much more than sharing a name
You’re still the woman that I meet in my dreams
Want a whole lot more good years of the same

(Repeat Chorus to fade)

Another Day In Paradise

(Verse)
Wrapped in leather head to toe
he wears his colors proud
He ain’t too quiet don’t ya know
he’ll drink and get real loud

Rides a Harley with his gal
and she’s one sexy bitch
But his dog is his closest pal
he loves his puppy Stitch

(Chorus)
Rumblin down the highway
Ya, cruising down the road
Livin his life his way
That’s ole Biker Joe

(Verse)
He’s a workin stiff by day
he does what he needs to do
But at night he likes to play
he’s an ace at bumper pool

He’ll show up at The Pool House
be there with the settin sun
Has some drinks and plays some games
before his nightly run

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
You’ll see him on the long road
that highway that never ends
He puts himself in cruise mode
then how far he goes depends

(Repeat Chorus)

(End)
Yeah, that’s Biker Joe

Biker Joe

I don’t fit in no big city
I’m a blue skies kind of guy
I get dirty and get gritty
and you might ask me why

I’m a stay the course
fix my own truck
feed my own horse
country kind of duck
Ain’t no sort of pretty
no I ain’t city slick
so don’t put me in no city
country’s where I’ll stick
Lord knows I’m the real McCoy,
Yes, I was, born a country boy

Now I ain’t no ladies’ man
I don’t play no silly games
‘Cause I’m just who I am
to them, cowboy is my name

(Chorus)

Can’t break me like no horse
I’m tough as a leather strap
Yet I’m easy, I don’t force
though I don’t take no crap

(Chorus)

Yes, Lord knows
I was, born a country boy

Born A Country Boy

Waitin for the phone to ring
Waitin for an email ding
Hopin somethin will come up
To make all my worry stop

I’m runnin out of money now
Gotta get some more somehow
Done ev’rything that I can think
Seems like I am on the brink

Breakdown
My mind is spinnin round
Breakdown
Feet ain’t planted on the ground
I’m slippin and I’m slidin
So I’m right here confidin
I need my world to turn around
before I have me, a breakdown

Thought that I had a good hold
was doin well so I was told
But suddenly the bottom dropped
money comin in all stopped

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
I still have my hopes and dreams
but a fog is rollin in it seems
I’m not seein very clear
I think the time is near. For a…

About Me

Bio

Note: Music-only tracks for the same song are available free with the purchase of all but one of my songs.

I've been writing songs now, seriously, since about 2002. I've gotten much better at it over the years, and won't even post a lot of my early demos because they embarrass me.  I've written some doozies! But I've also written some great songs which are posted here.

I hope you enjoy my music and want to play it for yourself. I have Country and Christian tunes here for you. And if you pick up any of my songs, then I wish you the best of luck in making them work for you!

Thank you and best regards,

Dave Johnson
