This is just a story. You will interpret it the way you will...


The infidels are coming, I hear the rotors beating through the night
No matter what ’ol Bob says I think the situation’s gettin’ tight
I was hoping I’d get lucky And everything would stay completely cool
We’d chill out at the palace And maybe have a drink out by the pool

I’ll miss my morning coffee and a cigarette
The evening sun’s reflection off the minaret
But party time is over
And I can’t go back to Baghdad anymore

Goodbye to days at Basra, we’d take the girls and throw ‘em in the sea
Just to see if they would come up Me an’ Sean and Chemical Ali
I had the whole world waitin’ To see what oily tricks I had in store
The tables turned on me the night My uncle came rolling through the door

Now Tommy’s coming over, bringing all his friends
He rocks the block with the gifts he sends
But party time is over
And I can’t go back to Baghdad anymore

So where are all my allies now that this debacle’s come to pass
After all we had some good times, that party with the Kurds was just a gas
I did the Oody Coosy and kept the martyrs hanging from a tree
And now that they’ve got nothing they wanna turn and blame it all on me

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.
