about

I Ain’t Looking For Love. Ain’t isn’t a word. Everybody knows that. A sometimes effective non-word. Let’s face it. I’m not looking for love just doesn’t cut it with me. I was listening to a nice R & B type groove on a television commercial one night, grabbed my guitar and started jamming along. I muted the sound after the commercial ended and I kept on going. And going. And I started thinking. "What would the Keefer do with this one?" Always loved the ragged stuff the most. I still hear this one screaming for a horn section. And I keep thinking back to David Coverdale's solo release "Whitesnake" and a track in particular entitled "Goldie's Place". Not an inspiration as much as a vocal treatment. I’m not sure when or if I'll get around to redoing this one. Maybe someone more adventurous can tackle that. There's so much new stuff to contend with. The muse sees to that. Even on nights off when I should be counting sheep … xoRJ

lyrics

I think I’m in trouble
I’m a bad, bad boy
Last night I broke a heart
Tossed it in the street

Must have been my own fault
Mistook danger for mystique
Here I am sweating bullets
When I should be counting sheep

I ain’t looking for love
Or a shelter from the cold
I ain’t looking for love
Or a hand that won’t let go
Maybe I’ll take you for granted
And maybe pride is bitter stuff
I’m still looking for something sugar
But I ain’t looking for love

Must have been a cruel moon
Made me crazy last night
Should have kept my mouth shut
I was talking cheap

I can’t quite remember
If she was myth or mystery
Now here I am like driftwood
At the mercy of the sea

I ain’t looking for love
Or a shelter from the cold
I ain’t looking for love
Or a hand that won’t let go
Maybe I’ll take you for granted
And maybe pride is bitter stuff

I ain’t lookin’ - I ain’t lookin’
I ain’t lookin’ - I ain’t looking for love

I ain’t lookin’ - for love

I ain’t looking for love
Or a shelter from the cold
I ain’t looking for love
Or a hand that won’t let go
Maybe I’ll take you for granted
And maybe pride is bitter stuff
I’m still looking for something sugar
But I ain’t looking for love

I ain’t lookin’ .. for love ..

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
