about

This is one of the first songs I recorded by myself. It's about life - we start out as idiots and learn as we go - hopefully - and if you're lucky and work like crazy you can look back and see an amazing journey and amazing people who have been part of the ride. I'm so lucky in so many ways - that's what it's about. Thank you to all the people who have loved me and been part of my life. The pic is me about 1978 - I thank Rod for it.

This Game Called Life

I was a young man back when I started here
It's hard to believe now it's been 30 years
I was a baby faced kid with a brand new wife
tryin to get ahead in this game - this game called life

Well it's funny just to think about
all I didn't know
things I took for granted such a long time ago
and TIME - there was no end in sight
and it was easier to sleep through the night
but it's all just a part of this game - this game called life

you struggle each day
each month and each year
you try to get ahead
try to deal with your fears
and your faith and your memories
are what get you by
when the hard times cut you like a knife
but it's all just a part of this game - this game called life

well our kids are comin up now
they're almost grown
lookin for direction
and a life of their own
our babies havin babies
husband and wife
trying to get ahead in this game - this game called life
and there aint no greater game you can play
no there aint no greater game you can play
than this game called life
