SONG 12 “I called it a draw …” Exactly. Two new songs. While I was debating which of the two should be added as a bonafide bonus track I started to lose interest in both of them. So I went outside to do some gardening. Ended up spending most of the day out there. I decided to take a bit of a break and grabbed the Ovation 12-string, sat down and wrote most of the music off the top. Aside from the percussion here, the song is presented in its original feel format. Patio table, acoustic guitar and vocal accompaniment. Plain Jane, baby. Like hanging at a campfire or house party with me doing my best to keep you entertained. For the fans that like this sort of thing, it’s an exclusive. Available only here. If you’re listening to this song I thank you humbly from the bottom of my heart. Such a small gift from me to you. For all you do … xoRJ


Shook off the chains
I bent but didn’t break
I don’t walk on fire anymore

I bear no shame
No fear when I walk away
I don’t walk on fire anymore

So cold and for so long
I waited for the thaw
Called it a draw - hey, what was I thinking
In need of a rescue
But I don’t know what for
I don’t walk on fire anymore

Sorry you’re alone
Probably cold there on your throne
I don’t walk on fire anymore

Carny days are gone
So’s the clown white I had on
I don’t walk on fire anymore

So cold and for so long
I waited for the thaw
Called it a draw - hey, what, what was I thinking
All the love you say you made
You don’t know what it’s for
I don’t walk on fire anymore

No, I don’t walk on fire anymore (fire walker …)
