about

F-F-F-F-FOR YOU “I can still read Hieroglyph.” As old as sin apparently. That’s what it was like back in the day. We were the enlightened ones. A whiter toga could not be found. We were that bright. You need all that wisdom. All the wisdom you can muster. You have to deal with Rhett. He doesn’t understand the bounce. Catlin Hawley, bless his soul, understood the groove right away. Something I picked up on while writing the song. In order for the song to travel properly, it needs the sporadic bounce. You can hear it now. It took an awful lot of explaining. Rhett couldn’t comprehend. Then I had an idea. Here’s the bounce we want. Wishbone Ash. Rock And Roll Widow. Not the progression. Not so much. But the bounce. That feel. Rhett did finally manage to capture the essence of it. After playing it live a few times he’s actually improved on the bounce. This song had been lazing around the vault in another form. The very first demo, recorded back in 2008 had the crunch was but was a sloppy, swampy affair. I WILL … FOR YOU (residing on SWEET TOOTH) became For You. A slight re-working became a full blown project. The little Badfinger/Beatles tug was an afterthought. Let’s get from A to B and raise a little hell getting there. Life is full of twists and turns. Life is good, keep it coming. A path. Have the faith to follow it. Every now and then someone special comes along and intersects. Wonderful stuff. And just think. This is the path I am on. One final note. Just to set the record straight. I’m sure you’ve heard of the 4-H club. Welcome to the 4-F club. This is not a sequel to b-b-baby, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Not at all. This one’s f-f-f-f-for you … xoRJ

lyrics

Ooh ooh, yeah

Saw you walking easy street
Strolling in luxury’s lap
Tip of the hat to a movie I saw
Heading you off at the pass

Day and night fixing the road
Just to be able to say

f-f-f-f-For you
f-f-f-f-For you
A wave of my hand - I can get that
f-f-f-f-For you

f-f-f-f-For you

I see a path - notice the signs
I can still read hieroglyph
Off to the left - remains of a fire
One never properly lit

Day and night I’d be feeding that flame
If this was the path I was on

f-f-f-f-For you
f-f-f-f-For you
If I wave my hand I can get that
f-f-f-f-For you

Day and night I’d be feeding that flame
If this was the path I was on -
The path I was on

f-f-f-f-For you
f-f-f-f-For you
If I wave my hand - I can get that
f-f-f-f-For you

f-f-f-f-For you
A wave of my hand - I can get that
f-f-f-f-For you
For you - For you - For you - For you
f-f-f-f-For you

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
