Story Behind the Song

one day when i was working for a small music publishing company, there was basically nothing left for me to do that required my attention that day. so, i picked up a really nice old guitar--there were always these cool, upscale, old guitars sitting around in every room--they just sat around unplayed and always wore rusty strings that must have not been re-strung for at least a zillion years--well, it was raining lightly outside and i began to feel a bit nostalgic and sentimental....and there came this moment where the melody just fell into place out of nowhere and it seemed the lyrics to the first verse very naturally unfolded. it actually took me around 3/4 years to return to the song to wrap it up. it felt like a relief to finish it and let it become a song. it still continues to be one of my favorites.

Lyrics

NO, I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE

the door is open
come on in
this place is a wreck
but if you're brave enough you're welcome
pull up a chair
i'll put on some coffee
looks like the pull of this life has worn you thin
please know you got a friend

CHORUS
no, i'm not going anywhere
regardless of the weather
let the winds blow
and storms beat down
i'm with you till the bitter end

so go ahead
go where you need to go
if your heart is caving in
you can say so
if you need a safe place
you got one
whatever you need, please know
i'm praying you some

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE
so if any time along the way
you need to be sure of me
look over next to you
and there i'll be.

(CHORUS)

(CHORUS)
