Ain't Nothin' Special


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Another autobiographic sketch. My favorite movies include "It's A Wonderful Life" and "Mr. Holland's Opus." I guess I get preoccupied with my life's value sometimes. "I hope I've done alright."

Lyrics
Ain’t nothin’ special ‘bout my life
I’m just driftin’ through time and takin’ up space
I get up every day And I go on my way
Then I end up back in the same place

Ain’t nothin’ special ‘bout my life
Well, if I make a difference, it doesn’t go too far
Well, I do what I can But I’m only one man
Not a rich man, a genius, or a star

Oh, I hope I’ve done allright
I have tried to shine that light
I have tried to make the most of ev’ry day
When I think about my worth
And my time upon this earth
Well, I hope the Lord will think I’ve done okay.

Ain’t nothin’ special ‘bout my life
I just try to be kind and do the right thing
And I give God the praise - He’s the source of all my days -
And while my time is passing, I will sing.

Oh, I know I’ve done allright
I have tried to shine that light
I have tried to make the most of ev’ry day
When I think about my worth
And my time upon this earth
Well, I hope the Lord will think I’ve done okay.

Ain’t nothin’ special ‘bout my life
Just an average guy, being all that I can be.
I got wishes, I got dreams, And sometimes crazy schemes
But I end up being just like me.

Yes, I end up being just like me...

Balanced tune
Very nicely balanced writing. Your voice sounds quite mellow and resonant on this. There is a hi tickyness in the snare (left side?) that could be dialed back, almost sounds like a finger snap, which doesn't make sense in my mind's eye. But I am listening on a tiny laptop... Very solid song, written like a narrative classic.

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
