about

This EP started as a Valentine to a friend (track 1) and ended up as a 4-song Xmas gift to my friends and fam. Then I released it just on my own domain, peaceandloveandrockandroll.com, and now, I'm putting it in Bandcamp! Because I like Bandcamp. There ya go :) Hope you enjoy <3

Track Name: Sweet Lacy Anne
From back in Kentucky where all the bourbon flows,
Found your way out to Cali and made it your own,
And I knew not what these eyes were for, until they fell upon you,

Tomorrow never comes and yesterday is done,
Right here in the moment I’m dreamin’ on,
There ain’t no words I know to begin to describe you,

You’re all the rock and roll to me,
All the rock and roll to me,
Finest that I ever seen,
And you’re all the rock and roll,
All the rock and roll to me,

Sweet Lacy Anne
Sweet Lacy Anne

I know you got stuck in a rut but you wont be stuck no more,
Cos freedom is calling through that open door,
And fun’s comin’ back your way, as sure as sun is risin’,

And everyone needs a little good love sometimes,
You can’t live on promises and waitin’ and cryin’,
And you’re beautiful all of the time, I thought I would remind you,

Cos you’re all the rock and roll to me,
All the rock and roll to me,
Shinin’ like the Mississippi,
And you’re all the rock and roll,
All the rock and roll,
You’re all the rock and roll to me,
Shimmer like the evergreens,
You’re all the rock and roll to me,
All the rock and roll to me,
Sweet Lacy Anne
Sweet Lacy Anne

I know you can,
Do anything that you wanna,
Sweet Lacy Anne,
The world is your oyster,
Sweet Lacy Anne,
Sweet, Sweet Lacy Anne

Track Name: Smokestax
Runnin’ from myself again,
I thought I lost a brand new friend,
Why must I cross over the line,
Seems I do it most every time,

The smokestax look better to me now,
Spewin’ out from underground,
I’m tunin’ in, but no one’s out there,
All alone without a care, I say,
Yeah yeah, I can see it now,
Yeah yeah, I can see it now,

Anger burnin’ up inside,
Ain’t nothin’ but my foolish pride,
It bubbles up, and tumbles out,
Through the smokestax of my mouth,

Smokestax out my window,
Chaos seethes from the underground,
It’s in the bag, there’s no way out now,
Like there ever was anyhow,
Yeah yeah, I can see it now,
Yeah yeah, I can see it,

If only I could once,
Then maybe I would once,
Only to know forever,
Always to recall,

Smokestax don’t get anxious,
They’re only payin’ for what we get,
Smokestax don’t get excited,
They live and die without regret,

Yeah yeah, I can see it now,
Yeah yeah, I can see it now,
Smokestax…….

Track Name: Dad
Well I was born with a restless heart,
It was broken when I came out,
You were lookin’ at some art, ignored me right from the start,
Only noticed when I broke anything,
I wanted your attention so I started to get mention
from the police blotter and truancy,
But there was nothing I can do, people just don’t interest you,
You’re busy and that’s the way it’ll stay,

I started throwing everything away,
I don’t like to keep things, they just get in the way,
I sold everything of value that I had,
It’s good to know, we’ll be soon with you, Dad,
We were always friends much more than fam,

Cos you were born with a restless heart,
Same as your dad, and the one before,
All of of our forefathers, drinkin’ up the firewater,
Livin’ like a blessing and curse,
I can’t hold money and I sure ain’t got no honey,
When I do get some it makes it all worse,
This self-destructive tendency has surely got the best of me,
I think you’d like my friend, she’s a nurse,

Now, I got nothin’ left to throw away,
In this total emptiness, I found my liberty,
I burned everything that I had wrote to you,
Sometimes I miss you oh so bad,
We were always friends much more than fam, Dad

When we meet up, we will have ourselves a time,
You always brought the party, knew that fun was not a crime,
I’m writing our full name up in the sky,
You were never simple, it drove me mad,
You’re the best friend that I never had,
Dad

Track Name: Peace and Love and Rock and Roll
I wanna take you to the beach,
And go walking in the sand,
I wanna have a minute,
When we don’t have a plan,

We’re lucky living by the coast,
No place that I would rather be,
Sunny days are here again,
Let’s play some reggae rock and roll,

Maybe we sip a little pint,
Oh baby fly a kite,
Sit and feel the breeze,
Just takin’ in the sights,

Lie on our backs and watch the airplanes fly,
Way up in the clear blue sky,
Jump into the ocean when,
We wanna cool off and get right,

We like peace and love and rock and roll,
These are the very best things I know,
Peace and love and rock and roll,
These are the only things I care about now, like
Peace, and rock, and rhythm and blues,
These are the only tools that I use,
We can be happy if we have some fun,
It’s the better way to get things done,
So make peace and love and rock and roll,
Every day

I miss you when you’re not around,
I love you when the earth is round,
And even though the world’s gone mad,
You’re in it so it makes me glad,

I don’t ever wanna see you sad,
So let’s go dancing down the club,
They’re playin’ roots and rub-a-dub,
I really wanna love you up,

Cos you like peace and love and rock and roll, and
These are the things I like the most,
We like roots rock reggae and our mommies, too
With so much in common what are we gonna do?
I like peace and love, and I like you, yeah,
Your kinda magic gonna see me through, oh
There is no other thing I’d rather do, than make
Peace and love and rock and roll with you,
We want peace and love and rock and roll,
Peace and love and rock and roll,
Peace and love, and this is also true,
We don’t deal with the haters but we love them too,
We like peace, and animals and swimming too, you’re
Such a find, you’re gonna drive me crazy,
I get happy when you’re around,
And your voice baby, is my favorite sound,
We like peace and love and rock and ro-oll,
Peace and love and rock and roll,
Peace and lovin’, and that’s all she wrote,
We like peace, full-stop, and a guitar solo, we like
Peace and love and rock and roll
Peace and love and rock and roll
We like it
