about

"Play for White Oak" came on the front porch, in the hammock, in an aunt's kitchen, camping out, and while playing with the kids
family and friends have joined in to buoy the solo guitar and to play songs about reaping what you sow, home, collections, and children. the wide open north carolina country influences this record that is one third instrumental.

Track Name: Beach Way
i know a place where we can go now
cuz it seems like times been pushing us around
we could take a trip to the shoreline
we could put our tent up, you and i
i know a place where we can go now
i know a place where we can let our hair down

cuz you might

feel better putting your feet in
... with your sun-kissed skin
... watching the tide roll in
... sorting sea shells
... building sand castles
... letting the surf keep time
... with your sun-kissed skin
... watching the tide roll in

that's the beach way
we'll ride on......
Track Name: Get Along
if you never lose your mother, if you never lose your father
will you get along?
if we never watch the full moon rise, if we never walk barefoot outside
will we get along?
sometimes you plant seeds in the ground, most times you can tell that you are bound
you get along
brother's like you dont come around too much, and you gotta learn to stay in touch
you get along

not getting along for me, you getting along for you, you get along
Track Name: Treemen Baseball Club
some games go on for a long time
this one's still going on in my mind
grew up with a backstop behind me
and a pasture in front of me
you take center ill go take right
we're gonna stay out in the field tonight
if the ball comes to me should i throw home
should i hit the cutoff, i dont know?

you lit the fire, who's gonna put it out now?
you lit the fire, no one can put it out now
Track Name: Breezy
sometimes when im out camping
think this is the way to live
because i can feel at ease, especially when i feel the breeze
the leaves may rustle around, and there's no train leaving for the town

when the sun comes pouring down
wish you would come around
cuz there might be a surprise in store
when you cant even hear the roar
the birds may fly right by
and your favorite crops will never die...
Track Name: A Song Came This Way
a song came this way, a song came that
but no ones around to hear it, no one, just you
so your back's against the wall again
but you've got a friend, a companion, you know
the sum of your days is not the score right now
remember where youve walked, how you laughed and cried with someone

no one's around to hear it...
Track Name: June Tells Me
june always tells me the story of my land, the story of my hands thus far
remember in the spring, the birds began to sing, the birds began to sing and chatter
the land it called to me, it said i will make free, it said i will make free your share
june always tells me the story of my land, the story of my hands thus far

so you like breaking your back, thats what you gotta do
so you like breaking your back when there's no one to help you
Track Name: Something Old
smells good out of the wrapper
add it to your collection
might have your favorite player
its something old

put it on when the lights go down
never fails to turn round and round
pops and crackles like you know it
its something old

rose up from the hillside
something that caught your eye
hard to the touch but it glistens
its something old
Track Name: Never Heard
i remember last thanksgiving sitting in your kitchen asking you for something to drink
i remember sitting there in your kitchen wondering why we didnt think what we used to think
i remember sitting there singing melodies that we all thought were so new
but its okay now that we're older we can do just what we like to do

just lay it on the table, its something new now
who cares if everybody doesnt sing your song
you can change all the verses as you go along
just lay it on the table, its something new

i remember sitting there by your bedside while you nodded off to sleep
i remember sitting there singing songs, lullabies for you to dream
and how i was wishing we were younger and things were just as they seem
i remember sitting there by your bedside singing songs that you never heard
