Sometimes you just misread the signals.
Slow Bluesy Ballad


Here’s To You
By Robert Johnson Howard

I saw her dancing from across the room
Sweet distraction, I was singing a tune
She caught my eye by the way that she moved
It’s not how she looked it was the way she grooves

She got an air of self-confidence
No warning signs, no hallow pretense
She had my attention she hit the nail on the head
It’s was just her intentions that maybe I misread

Chorus: So here’s to you:
I wasn’t asking for a key to her trust
here’s to you
So why she got me thinking I’m not good enough

I’m just a player, likes to sing the blues
I got a bar full of ladies that I like to amuse
I’m not the kind player likes to kiss and run
When it comes to ladies then I’m one and done

Do you think I can tell from that look in her eye
Don’t you look at me as just another barfly
If this is just a game she’s got to tell me the rules
I don’t mind rolling the dice but won’t be played like a fool

Chorus: So here’s to you…
Baby maybe take a chance and roll the dice
You don’t have to want me, you can still act nice
There’s plenty more waiting to take their turn
I’m not the bridge that you need to burn

Well, I’ll write that one off to miscommunication
Guess I’ll be looking for a new situation

Writing and recording is my passion. Its like a painting. It doesn't do any good stuck in my head so I might as well get it on disk before it drives me to cut my ear off.
