about

Over the years when not working on original material I've recorded some of my favorite songs, just because I could and it's fun. This project is the result.
On most of these songs I've tried to be as faithful to the original as I could. On a few of them that was obviously not gonna be possible so I did.....whatever I could, LOL. (I'm looking at YOU Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder and Jeff Beck!)
A HUGE thanks to my partner in crime and keyboardist DeLuxe, Donte Purdy.
I hope you have a good time!

about

RS Cain Versailles, Kentucky

I'm a guitarist, singer, and songwriter from central Kentucky.
My music is a mix of many different influences; from the country and western I heard as a child to some stuff I heard yesterday.
I write songs primarily to make you shake your money maker. I'm not deep, and I'm certainly no virtuoso. I just want you to have a good time.

Track Name: Too Much Stuff
Big house, big car, back seat, full bar
Houseboat won't float, bank won't tote the note
Too much stuff, there's just too much stuff
It'll hang you up dealing with too much stuff

Hangin' out on the couch puttin' on the pounds
Better walk, run, jump, swim, try to hold it down
You're eatin' too much stuff, too much stuff
It'll wear you down, carrying around too much stuff

Hundred dollar cab ride, fogged in, can't fly
Greyhound, Amtrak, oughta bought a Cadillac
Too much stuff, too much stuff
It'll slow you down, fooling with too much stuff

Well, it's way too much
You're never gonna get enough
You can pile it high
But you'll never be satisfied

Rent-a-tux, shiny shoes, backstage, big schmooze
Vocal group can't sing, won awards for everything
Too much stuff, too much stuff
They just keep on going, rolling in all that stuff

Got hurt, can't work, got a lot o' bills
But the policy don't pay 'less I get killed
Too much stuff, too much stuff
Just my luck, counting on too much stuff

Well, it's way too much
You're never gonna get enough
You can pile it high
But you'll never be satisfied

Running back can't score till he gets a million more
Quarterback can't pass, owner wants his money back
Too much stuff, too much stuff
You know, you can't get a grip when you're slipping in all that stuff

Women every which-a-way messing with my mind
You know, I fall in love every day three or four times
Too much stuff, too much stuff
It'll mess you up, fooling with too much stuff

Yeah, too much stuff, too much stuff
Too much stuff, too much stuff
You never get enough 'cause there's just too much stuff
You know you can hurt yourself, fooling with too much stuff
Yeah, it'll tear you down, fooling with all that stuff
Track Name: Lie To Me
Lie to me
And tell me everything is all right
Lie to me
And tell me that you'll stay here tonight
Tell me that you'll never leave,
I'm just trying to make believe
That everything you tell me is true

Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me
Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me

Lie to me
It doesn't matter anymore
It could never be the way it was before
If I can't hold on to you
Leave me with something I can hold onto,
For just a little while won't you let me dream

Anyone can see
That you love him more than me
But right now, baby, let me pretend
That our love will never end

Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me
Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me
Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me
Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me
Track Name: Loud Music
Loud music is a forty-dollar fine
In Amarillo, Texas, down the Rock Island line

Loud music is a forty-dollar fine
In Amarillo, Texas, down the Rock Island line
Before you make it scream, before you make it whine
Don't forget loud music is a forty-dollar fine

Well, there's a little law that's still on the books, y'all
Got nothin' to do with catchin' crooks, no
You turn the music up, people start to holler
If a man walks in, you got to give him forty dollars
Do a little dance, drink a little wine
Don't forget loud music is a forty-dollar fine

Loud music is a forty-dollar fine
In Amarillo, Texas, down the Rock Island line
Before you make it scream, before you make it whine
Don't forget loud music is a forty-dollar fine

Well, it's hard to hold back when the sun goes down
There's not a whole lot of shakin' from this old town
But they'll rock you silly and they'll make you sweat
Got nothin' to lose, let your feet get wet
But before you decide to walk that line
Don't forget loud music is a forty-dollar fine

Loud music is a forty-dollar fine
In Amarillo, Texas, down the Rock Island line
You can make it scream, and you can make it whine
Don't forget loud music is a forty-dollar fine

You can take a man's money, you can take away his gun
But he'll always come back to what it was made him run
Well, they try to protect you from the things you read
Ain't no tellin' where a little music might lead
So before you get wild, before you lose your mind
Don't forget loud music is a forty-dollar fine

Loud music is a forty-dollar fine
Before you make it scream, go and lose your mind
Don't forget loud music is a forty-dollar fine
It's a forty-dollar fine
It's a forty-dollar fine
A forty-dollar fine
A forty-dollar fine
Track Name: Cousin Dupree
Well I've kicked around a lot since high school
I've worked a lot of nowhere gigs
From keyboard man in a rock'n ska band
To haulin' boss crude in the big rigs

Now I've come back home to plan my next move
From the comfort of my Aunt Faye's couch
When I see my little cousin Janine walk in
All I could say was ouch

CHORUS:
Honey how you've grown
Like a rose
Well we used to play
When we were three
How about a kiss for your cousin Dupree

She turned my life into a living hell
In those little tops and tight capris
I pretended to be readin' the National Probe
As I was watchin' her wax her skis

Saturday night she walks in with a date
And backs him up against the wall
I tumbled off the couch and heard myself say
In a voice I never knew I had before

CHORUS
I'll teach you everything I know
If you teach me how to do that dance
Life is short and quid pro quo
And what's so strange about a down-home family romance?

One night we're playin' gin by a cracklin' fire
And I decided to make my play
I said babe with my boyish charm and good looks
How can you stand it for one more day

She said maybe its the skeevy look in your eyes
Or that your mind has turned to applesauce
The dreary architecture of your soul
I said - but what is it exactly turns you off?
Track Name: Maybe Someday Baby
My baby told me such a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna miss me someday"
Now, My baby told me such a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna wish you had stayed"

Been a long time, honey, and I'm gone still
I think about you some and I guess I always will
And if I'm losing, at least I'm moving
And it's easier to live with than standing still

She called me collect from a pay telephone
She said, "Who's gonna love you when you're old?"
Now my baby told me once I was gone
She said, "I've never known a man so cold"

Now, women say funny things sometimes
Especially when they're just about to lose their minds
If I could change it, knockin' on wood
Lord knows I'd box a forest full of trees down if I could
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby

Oh, I don't know
Now, I don't know why babies cry, why the wind blows
No, girl, I just don't know
But tonight I just might lose my mind

I don't know
I don't know why babies cry, why the wind blows
No, honey, I don't know
But tonight I just might lose my mind

My baby told me such a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna miss me someday"
My baby told me a long time ago
She said, "You're gonna wish you had stayed"

Been a long time, honey, and I'm gone still
I think about you some and I guess I always will
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby
Someday baby, someday maybe, maybe someday baby
Track Name: Smokin' Gun
I get a constant busy signal
When I call you on the phone
I get a strong uneasy feeling
You're not sitting there alone
I'm having nasty nasty visions
And baby you're in every one, yeah
And I'm so afraid I'm gonna find you with
That so called smokin' gun


Maybe you want to end it
You've had your fill of my kind of fun
But you don't know how to tell me
And you know that I'm not that dumb
I put two and one together
And you know that's not an even sum
And I know just where to find you with
That well known smokin gun


I'm standing here bewildered
I can't remember just what I've done
I can hear the sirens whining
My eyes blinded by the sun
I know that I should be running
My heart's beating just like a drum
Now they've knocked me down and taken it
That still hot, smokin' gun
Track Name: Come Together
Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production, he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard, he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

Right!

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking cos he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

Oh
Come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah oh
Come together
Track Name: Human Cannonball
Saw an ad in the paper
Said the hell with it all
Took a gig with the circus
As the human cannonball
It didn't take long
To learn my trade
Very first show
Man, I blew the folks away
Now, the job's a little risky
But I'm my own boss
I got to tell ya, Jack
It really gets me off
I live in a tent with
The world's strongest man
When I met the mother
Like to broke my hand
My baby, she's a lady
In the high-wire act
When I'm feeling tense
She walks on my back
Now, the pay's okay
The benefits are great
I get to shoot the bull
With the world's smallest ape
Ah ha
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all
Well I'm a hot shot
I'm a cool breeze
Underneath the big top
I'm the big cheese
I lay it on the line
Let it all hang
When I go, least I know
I'll go with a bang
I reckon I'm living
Every kid's dream
It's a buzz, it's a gas
It's a real scream
Ah ha
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all
Yeah
Alright, folks
Just make yourself at home
Have a snow cone and enjoy the show
They put me on the cover
Of the U.S.A. Today
Tell the world what the human cannonball got to say
On the Conan show
They sayin' "HC, what you do, you got to be
Right outta your tree!"
Well, it's a little risky
But I'm my own boss
I got to tell you, Jack
It really gets me off
Ah ha
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all
I'm the human cannonball
I'm the human cannonball, y'all
Track Name: 867-5309/Jenny
Jenny Jenny who can I turn to
You give me something I can hold on to

Who saw your name and number on the wall
Jenny I've got your number
I need to make you mine
Jenny don't change your number
Eight six seven five three oh nine

Jenny Jenny you're the girl for me
You don't know me but you make me so happy
I tried to call you before but I lost my nerve
I tried my imagination but I was disturbed
Jenny I've got your number
I need to make you mine
Jenny don't change your number
Eight six seven five three oh nine

I got it (i got it) I got it
I got your number on the wall

Eight six seven five three oh nine

Jenny Jenny who can I turn to
For the price of a dime I can always turn to you
Track Name: Outside Woman Blues
If you lose your money
Great God don't lose your mind
If you lose your money
Great God don't lose your mind
And if you lose your woman
Please don't fool with mine

You can't watch your wife
And your outside womens too
You can't watch your wife
And your outside womens too
'Cause when you're out with your woman
Your wife will be at home
Cooking the food
Doin' your dirt
Buddy what you tryin' to do?

I'm gonna buy me a bulldog
Watch my old lady whilst I sleep
I'm gonna buy me a bulldog
Watch my old lady whilst I sleep
'Cause women these days
Are so doggone crooked
They might make a four day creep
Track Name: You Haven't Done Nothin'
We are amazed but not amused
By all the things you say you'll do
We're much concerned but not involved
In decisions that are made by you
And we are sick and tired of hearing your song
Saying how you are gonna change right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
You haven't done nothin

It's not too cool to be ridiculed
But you brought this upon yourself
The world is tired of cons and liars
We want the truth and nothing else, yeah
And we are sick and tired of hearing your song
Saying how you are gonna change right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
You haven't done nothing

All you people sing it with me now say
doo doo wop
doo doo wop
doo doo wop
doo doo wop
doo doo wop
doo doo wop

We would not care to wake up to the nightmare
That's becoming real life
But when misled, who knows a person's mind
Can turn as cold as ice
Why do you keep on making us hear your song
Saying how you are gonna change right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
You haven't done nothing
C'mon people sing it one more time
Track Name: Night By Night
It's a beggars life, said the Queen of Spain
But don't tell it to a poor man
Cause he's got to kill for every thrill
The best he can
Everywhere around me
I see jealousy and mayhem
Because no men have all their peace of mind
To carry them

Well I don't really care
If it's wrong or if it's right
But until my ship comes in
I'll live night by night

When the joker tried to tell me
I could cut it in this rube town
When he tried to hang that sign on me
I said take it down
When the dawn patrol got to tell you twice
They're gonna do it with a shotgun
Yes, I'm cashing in this ten-cent life
For another one

Well I ain't got the heart
To lose another fight
So until my ship comes in
I'll live night by night

Well I don't really care
If it's wrong or if it's right
But until my ship comes in
I'll live night by night
Track Name: Daddy Don't Live In That New York City
Daddy don't live in that New York City
No more
He don't celebrate Sunday on a Saturday night
No more
Daddy don't need no lock and key
For the piece he stowed
Out on Avenue D
Daddy don't live in that New York City
No more
Daddy don't drive in that Eldorado
No more
He don't travel on down to the neighborhood
Liquor store
Lucy still loves her coke and rum
But she sits alone
Cause her daddy can't come
Daddy don't drive in that Eldorado
No more
Driving like a fool out to Hackensack
Drinking his dinner from a paper sack
He says I gotta see a joker
And I'll be right back
Daddy don't live in that New York City
No more
He can't get tight every night
Pass out on the barroom floor
Daddy can't get no fine cigar
But we know you're smoking
Wherever you are
Daddy don't live in that New York City
