A while back, I won the opportunity to go and record at the Beaird Music studio in Nashville with a six piece band. I was finally able to make it through there and record a couple of songs, of which this is one. It was an amazing experience standing at the mic where a chap called Garth was standing a couple of weeks earlier and a gal called Dolly a while before that! Rob, the sound engineer has now worked with all the Big Three :). Actually, the man displayed the patience of a saint, as did everyone involved!

Band members' credits include folks like Alan Jackson, Luke Combs, Hank Williams Jr., Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Melissa Etheridge, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Willie Nelson and Alicia Keys. It must have been quite a thrill for them to work with me LOL.

I posted this song here in its original version a couple of years ago to a deafening silence LOL. Thought it better to start a new thread rather than revive that one.

FOOL TO LOVE HER

I wake up in the morning, try to go back to sleep
Just forget her - things’ll get better
Every day’s a mountain, this one’s too steep
She’s only in your head because you let her
(So) I make myself some coffee
Wonder what she’s doing now
Is she thinking of me?
I don’t think so somehow
 
And I-I-I-I’m a fool to love her
Look at you, you big old fool
I know I should, but I can’t get her out of my head
Yeah, yeah, you wish you were dead
She told me I was a tool and it was over
She knows what she’s talking about           
But if she came back I’d forget every word that she said
 
Sweater back to front, shoes on the wrong feet
Come on buddy, pull yourself together
Turn the wrong way down a one way street
Is that some kind of a lame-ass metaphor?
No, I really did it
Look here’s the ticket I got
You’ll probably say I’m an idiot
Yeah, I’ll bet you get that a lot
 
And I-I-I-I’m a fool to love her
Yes you are, you’re not wrong there
I know I should, but I can’t get her out of my head
That’s what happens  if you don’t take your meds
She told me I was a tool and it was over
Boy, she knows what she’s talking about
But if she came back I’d forget every word that she said
Oh, for crying out loud
 
Who are you, whatcha doing in my head?
I’m the voice of reason
Can’t you try saying something nicer instead
Some folks there just ain’t to pleasin’
You’re a bit of a downer
What I need’s a kind word or two
That’s not why I come round here
But I’ll see what I can do
 
And I-I-I-I’m a fool to love her
She's a fool to let you go
How was that? Thank you, that’s much better
This feels wrong, but its your song
She told me I was a tool and it was over
She don’t know what she’s talking about
But if she came back I’d forget every word that she said
No really, there’s no chance of that
 
You had to go and ruin it, didn’t you?
Sorry.

I may or may not be an enigma
