Check out my Brown Boots song. It’s a tribute to the working man.

Here’s where the inspiration came from.

I worked at a place called Gorman foundry for 3 years. It was a hard place to work. Hot and dirty. Slinging molten metal all day. You would break huge chunks of slag into little pieces.

The men that I worked beside were hard workers and great freinds. It’s been 20 years since i’ve worked with them but I still run into them on occasion.

They are the types of freinds that no matter how long its been it’s like were together yesterday.

This type of bond is very similar to the bonds I made with guys I served with in the Army.

We busted out ass together and we partied our ass of together.

I thought it was about time to give props to the people working their ass off behind the scenes. The poeple who make life easier for us in one way or another to keep society moving. We spend way too much time propping up celebrities and athletes.

Listen below to see how it turned out.

Lyrics

Eyelids feel like anvils in his sweat stained sheets
Another morning came too damn soon

And his rusty knees are creaking like his old box spring bed
Rising to the another week of sweat

And through the highs and lows
the only ones who ever know
are those brown boots and they’re wearing thin

If those boots could talk
tell of how he walked the walk
no complaints, no violins

Another day of busting ass a punching bag for the upper class
and those talking head whores that are bought and paid for

Invisible to a public eye hypnotized to only recognize
the spoon fed drama from an unreality show

And through the highs and lows
the only ones who ever know
are those brown boots and they’re wearing thin

If those boots could talk
tell of how he walked the walk
no complaints, no violins

He’s walking on a treadmill with a hole in his pocket
how on earth can he ever get ahead

Without his old guitar, his better half and the local bar
He’s dynamite waiting to explode

And through the highs and lows
the only ones who ever know
are those brown boots and they’re wearing thin

If those boots could talk
tell of how he walked the walk
no complaints, no violins

Name Your Price

You will notice that the price is currently set to “Name Your Price.” It means what it says and even includes paying nothing (yep, the song is completely free. Costs you $0). And you can download the new music in any version you would like – mp3, wav, ogg, etc . Hell you can even send a copy to your friends if you feel like it and I will not call the internet police or the RIAA or anything like that.

Just so you know, If you pay anything at all between now and the first Monday in April (when I release more new music), I will put your name in the song credits under “Associate Producer” or whatever title you choose. This will forever link you to the song and proudly put you on display for everyone to see that you are supporting one very grateful musician. Your name will reside in the credits on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, CdBaby, etc for now but when it comes time to release physical copy of the CD, it will be there too.

“Your contribution not only helps me offset the cost of providing this music for free but it also tells me that you think what I am doing is worth the effort and that you want me to continue creating more music and moments for you.”

A Big THANKS to contributors on the last release – Associate Producers: Jim Jerome, Nicole Gentry, Kathryn Brown (aka Director of Awesome) .
