Lyrics
©2011
Russ Wilson

Feet are firmly planted
On the outside looking in
Watch the world go by
comeing back again.

Never had a reason
No I never found the need
To be something other
Than what I was meant to be.

Chorus

Seems there's a rule out there
I don't know where
Of how things need to be
Would you show me please
But if I always did it that way
Wont you tell me
What would that make me?

Take the road less traveled
I know I'll find my way
No place special that I'm going
Got no other Place

The sun sets in the the same place
No matter what your name
Just the way it is
Don't want to play the game

Chorus

Bridge
In my mind I like to hang around
Don't make it something that it's not
To much thinking seems to take away
What life's about What lifes about

Maurice I have been
called many things but never prolific. Glad you enjoyed the track. I guess when I think about it, this could be relevant to many. Especially those of us who enjoy writing music.. Thanks for the spin...

The Road Less Traveled
It gets kind of lonely on that road doesn't it. Once again a very nice melodic guitar backing and good lyrics. Keep up the good work.

Oh yes,
it was some performer in the 60's who just was natural and wonderful. damn, I still don't have a name but I can hear him. (Maybe.. Jim Croce?) You did great.

Thanks for the listen.
On this song I used my Takamine EAN 15C. It is twelve years old and no longer being made. Best acoustic I have ever owned and I have owned many. Strings are always D'Addario on acoustic guitars and Ernie Ball on electrics. I guess the one thing that may stand out is I never plug in my acoustic's. I always mic them both live and in recording. Hope that helps... Thanks again..

Well done.
That's some nice guitar right there, It's a nice contrast to the lyrics which are somewhat depressing, or at least that's how I interpreted them. Excellent work.

Thanks
Depressing lyric? Not so much, at least not meant to be. Just reflecting a bit. I have always marched to my own drum. In the past I would defend that. Now I just don't give a shit. Glad you enjoyed the track. Thanks for stopping by and the kind words.

Great sound
I like the filigree guitar work. Easy going vocals - fine lyrics - solid song. I'd like to hear a bass under there I think - the bottom would be a nice balance.

Really good song!
Hi Russ. Really good song with some nice southern acoustic elements. I was just listening, yesterday, to the Marshall Tucker Band (on vinyl) and I can imagine them doing a song just like this. Love the vocals and the lyrics and the guitar work. D/L'ed. Thanks, Peter.

It would make you a guy who toes the line.
Nice crisp guitar. Interesting lyrics. Fortunately we all make up our own rules.

Too much thinking can mess things up to be sure.

Some nice lines in the lyric "Feet are firmly planted On the outside looking in", "The sun sets in the the same place No matter what your name". Tight playing, some nice lines & tone on the acoustic.

For the listen. I am happy with the lyric, not so much with the melody. Probably going to change it up a bit... Thanks for the spin.

You make it sound
so simple, but this is really very complex, the stripped down feel of this gives it a natural sound if that makes any sense anyway great song!
