Broadjam Member Reviews

This has a very contagious groove which fits this country blues genre perfectly...the tempo was mid but the song has lots of energy and movement...the instrumentation was professional and was record quality...overall length of song was commercial. I can hear this being placed in a movie or a television show as background music or a 's also good for commercials and travelogues...

    - My Three Kids Music

Great feel dark and smooth. Good writing this. Good clean vocal. Count me among your fans.

The cold out in the street
Gets by my pint of gin
Tells me it's time to go
Forget about everything again

The fire in the barrel
Can't warm this worthless soul
Empty faces in my bottle
Always end up in control

It's time to head on down the road
I won't stop until I get where I go
"Nice to meet you, my name is Johnny Doe"
The smile hurts but you never let it show

Drowned is the memory
Of the man I used to know
When it all gets too heavy
It's time for me to go

The fire in the barrel
We stand around and sing
Drawn to the devil
I can hardly feel a thing

It's time to head on down the road
When I get there I'll be the last to know
"Nice to meet you, my name is Johnny Doe"
The smile hurts but you never let it show

Broken glass on the sidewalks along with shattered dreams
Every morning I wake up, I wonder where I've been

It's time to head on down the road
Ahead of the cold
I feel it in my bones
Time to head it down the road
Ahead of the cold
Head on down the road

Head On Down The Road

Using the song Head On Down The Road some old pictures were applied. Hopefully this song will raise the awareness of the needs of our homeless people, a great percentage of which are veterans. So, enjoy, and the next time a guys needs a dollar and you got an extra one or two...
