Lyrics
the clock says it's time to go , . . now.
i think i'd better go , . . now.
but i'd really like to stay here all night . . .

i don't want to set the world on fire . . .
i just want to start a flame in your heart.

i've been coming here for a while . . .
i'm the one in the corner ;
with the vacant smile . . .
getting wasted and singing silly songs ;
but it's time for me to be moving on . . .

my bag is packed, i got a ticket to ride . . .
right across the world ;
to the other side . . .
don't know how long i'll be away ;
might be right back . . .
might decide to stay . . .

i don't know where i'm going . . .
but i'll find somewhere to sun my soul ;
got everything i need on my back . . .
just point me down that road.

before i go, i'd just like to say . . .
"so-long" to all the friends i've made
along the way . . .
we may never ever meet again . . .
but if we do . . . untill then . . .

good-bye . . . so-long . . .
if you think it, put it in a song . . .
i wanted to be johnny cash ;
but i ended up . . . country john . . .

Goodbye Friend
Not only is this one of the best goodbye's I've ever heard, it is also a very
good song stand-alone. The music, the lyrics, the performance,
everything is brilliant. I for one are going to miss you and your music
around here... Good luck and welcome back whenever!

Country John
I love you. I shall miss you.

Two of the best songs I've been part of on MJ have been CJ songs. And
"born free" is as close to perfection as songwriting gets in my book.
You have more originality in your little finger than most of us have in
our... er... big fingers.

Have a great trip and I hope I'll see you somewhere.

Oh yes. This one? This is another cracker. Has that mixture of
weirdness and realism, funy and sad that all your songs have. A lovely
melody too....

Keep safe. Have a great trip. Stay clear of Yoko.

and the songs that we worked on were made by your playing ! . .

thanks

MacJams truly is and should be. Peace.

To my one and only fan...
I love your 'goodbye' song very much and I too find it unbearably sad. I have always looked forward to your songs, your words, your talent and the unmistakeable tune that is yours alone.

I don't know why you'd want to be Johnny Cash.. I find Country John to be much more interesting!!

God Speed .. God Bless .. I will miss you.

Hwyl!
Make sure you come back - that adventure should give you loads of
inspiration.

You've certainly left a song that'd going to remind us all what we're
missing. Looking at all your posted tracks, you've gone from a creative
experimentor to one of the finest songwriters on the site.

And now the end is near…
… and so you face the final curtain, CJ. I hope I've gotten here in
time. I've left it a bit late but better late than never and all that.
Best wishes, me ole mucka! This place won't be the same without
you so do hurry back. I remember you were my first fan on
MacJams… can't believe that it's nearly a year ago since then. And
what a great way for you to say goodbye. A lovely tune and I'll
admit to being a bit misty-eyed by the end. Nice one, CJ! Sorted!

My eyes swelled...
just listening to this. Reminded me Belle & Sebastian. I never thought
that anyone could just get up and leave!!! There are so many things
that I want to ask... Why? How come? Will you be back? When will you
be back? What are you going to do now?

Well, either way, you've decided on what must be done. Take care my
friend!

and as always...

SAFE!

This is the first thing of yours I've ever listened to...
...and you've opened the doors of perception as well as lighting my fire (in
a purely musical way)! How can you possibly go? I know you're a
respected MJer and will be sorely missed.

What are you going to do without MJ in your life? Sounds very scary to
me...

Please reconsider
I release CDs and nobody buys 'em. I release metal stuff when I know
most people don't like it. I made Reverend Sasquatch and lots of
people have no use for him just on general principles. It's all what you
do, bro'. If people like it or don't like it, so what. The only thing that
matters is whether you like it.

At the same time, it's always lovely if someone enjoys your work but to
make it a requirement for what you are producing is tragedy in the
making as most people won't, no matter how good it is. Britney Spears
has squillions of fans who adore her but I doubt you could find many
people on MJ who would raise their voices to say anything good about
her (I am one of them, by the way, but that's not important right now).

You've got your family and your music; nothing else really matters.
And, quite frankly, most of the time family stuff is a pain in the ass. So
that leaves one thing.

Whatever you do, good luck with it.

i'm sad to see you go - you're one of my few fans!

seriosuly though - it is sad to see you go. someone said to avoid yoko (which i find odd because she's one of the people i'd most like to meet!) are you going to NYC? i'm hoping to move there soon.

but until whenever, we'll miss you around here.

oh, and by the by, i loved this song! the intro is amazing!

johnny cash is cool - but we're all glad you ended up country john.

have fun and be safe!
