Feeling Good

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom on a tree
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done, that’s what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me
For me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Oh, freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
It’s a new life
For me

And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good
I’m feeling so good
I feel so good

Live music can inspire you,

it can thrill and drain you,

sometimes get inside you

and fucking seduce you.

Carolyn Wonderland On NPR   1 comment

Carolyn Wonderland at Houston’s McGonigel’s Mucky Duck, June, 2009 — Image by kenne

As I opened the front door after my morning run, I was met with a great blues song and in a split second I knew it was Carolyn — but I was listening to NPR when I left the house, so to my surprise and pleasure Carolyn Wonderland was on NPR. The song she was performing was  and old Janis Joplin song,“What Good Can Drinkin’ Do”.

Those of you who visit this blog know that Carolyn Wonderland is one of my favorite blues singer, out of Austin by way of Houston. Since seeing her live in Houston at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck, I have done several posting on one of Texas’s best. My Youtube video, “Carolyn Wonderland McGonigel’s Mucky Duck, June 27, 2009,” has had close to 5,000 views.

I hope she makes it though Tucson soon — they would love her!

Howling Coyote, May 4, 2008   Leave a comment

Live Music Is All About Staying Alive

One of the best “blues” clubs in the Houston area is the Howling Coyote.  Know for its roadhouse blues and classic rock.  This past Sunday live music lovers and musicians got together to generate funds to help pay the medical bills for the Howling Coyote owner, Mit Truax.  Mit is being treated for colon cancer, to which he is responding favorably in his fight to stay alive.

Joy and I made it out during the early afternoon and the place packed, inside and out.  We would have loved to have stayed longer, but the only downside to this roadhouse is smoking is allowed.  With the number of people, many of which were smoking, our eyes couldn’t take much of the pain (and God knows what it was doing to our lungs); we choose to spend most of our time outside.  (See Photo Set)
