I'm just trying to keep things simple, and just be a little more offhand and not get so deep into things. Enjoy what you got right now, because who knows what's going to happen tomorrow.
I write probably 80 percent of my stuff over the winter.
Call me a relic, call me what you will, say I'm old fashion, say I'm over the hill. Today's music ain't got the same soul, I like that old time rock and roll.
When you're in a relationship, you're always surrounded by a ring of circumstances... joined together by a wedding ring, or in a boxing ring.
Stood alone on a mountain top, starin' out at the Great Divide. I could go east, I could go west, it was all up to me to decide. Just then I saw a young hawk flyin' and my soul began to rise.
Up with the sun. Gone with the wind.
I guess I lost my way, there were so many roads. I was living to run, and running to live, never worried about paying or even how much I owed.
Mediocrity's easy, the good things take time, the great need commitment.
If I want to work, I can. If I want to play golf, or ride my motorcycle, I can. But the rest of it is family. Sometimes you're not really needed by your family, but you're there. And my kids like to know I'm there.
Those are the memories that made me a wealthy soul.
You go to LA, or you go to New York, and it's really fun to go there. But they're not grounded. Everybody is just competing all the time for the limelight. It's too much entertainment industry. There are too many choices. And it's distracting to me.
Dreams die hard and we watch them erode, but we cannot be denied the fire inside.
Take a lesson from the trees, watch the way they bend with each breeze, little victories.
I like people to just bring it to the table and feel the moment. And that's why I've never done a session where I don't sing live.
One victim lives in tragedy, another victim stops to stare, and still another walks on by pretending not to see
Tell them we'll be dancing, dancing 'til we drop, it's time to get down and do the Horizontal Bop.
I just start playing music and eventually I sing something, a line of a verse or a B section or a line of a chorus, and the line that I end up singing is related to the music I'm playing, if that makes any sense. And I go from there.
I'm really glad I didn't have kids earlier, because I probably would have ignored them. I was so into my career. I could just go and play a ton of shows, night after night after night. I can't do that anymore.
I always loved music. You know, my parents said I started singing when I was 4, in the car.
Every now and then you'll nail one that's really, really special. And that's what you live for.
I write a lot of songs people don't hear. I really just enjoy the process. I finish 'em all. I don't think there's a whole lot of difference between the bad ones and the good ones.
I work my back 'til it's racked with pain, the boss can't even recall my name.
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
You can't get a good crew and a good sound system, and a good light system if you do a small tour. If you want the best, those guys want a commitment of about 4 to 6 months. And I'd want the best people and the best stuff.
I had the opportunity to be around my kids a lot. I guess I could have kept working, but I had them when I was 47. You only get to see all this stuff once. I just chose to work at home and watch them.
