Tonight I’m Just Thinking About You Well hello how are you? It’s been a long long time It’s good to hear your voice on the phone Yes, it’s me, I’m calling from Austin, Texas Nah, I’m not looking for a loan I just missed you And I was wondering how you were doing Remember when we stole that blue canoe? Boat started leaking; we laughed so hard Tonight I’m just thinking about you How many kids? Are they gonna go to college? Do you think they’ll be as crazy as me and you? No, I hope not, too, That’s a long hard road And some of our friends did not make it through Are you rich? Are you happy? Do you still love your lover? Have any of your biggest dreams come true? No, I wouldn’t ask that, That’s not why I’m calling Tonight I’m just thinking about you Yeah, I gotta go too My wife will start wondering Maybe next year we can get back home Do you ever see Frank? Ah, what am I saying? Go on now, I know you gotta go What I wanted to say was, ah, never mind Some things are better left unsaid , it’s true Yes, it’s me, I’m calling from Austin, Texas, Tonight I’m just thinking about you Tonight I’m just thinking about you Tonight I’m just thinking about you © words and music by Jim Patton

I Never Give Up Well I never give up I’m just a stubborn fool Oh, I get down sometimes Just the same as you I’ve believed in dreams That would not come true And I’ve lost some friends I didn’t mean to lose But I never give up No I never give up Oh I never give up Not me Sometimes I get so angry Sometimes I get confused Sometimes I get so worried I don’t know what to do But I never give up Won’t let my spirits fall I will rise above I will stand up tall Some people try to drag you down And bring you to your knees Sometimes a ray of hope Is all the light you need So I never give up No I never give up Oh I never give up Not me It’s been a long hard road But I’m not nearly through I’m gonna live my life Like I set out to do Cause I never give up I always get back up I never give up Don’t you Some people try to drag you down And bring you to your knees Sometimes a ray of hope Is all the light you need So I never give up No I never give up Oh I never give up Not me No I never give up I always get back up Oh I never give up Not me © words and music by Jim Patton

On The Day I Leave This World On the day I leave this world The sun will still rise in the sky Birds will take wing; dogs will chase squirrels Somewhere a newborn babe will cry Cause on the day I leave this world This merry-go-round will keep on spinning And I’m hoping what seems like the end Will just be a new beginning On the day I leave this world On the day I leave this world Somebody’s daughter will be getting married That foolish boy; that long-legged girl All the burdens they now carry But on the day I leave this world Our love will go on living And for all the times I may have acted otherwise I hope that I will be forgiven On the day I leave this world On the day I leave this world Everything comes to an end Not just good things, bad things too What’s left are seeds in the wind On the day I leave this world On the day I leave this world I’ll leave some friends behind me And my old pals will play guitars and sing About how some ties are binding On the day I leave this world Cause on the day I leave this world There will be no need to cry The sun will still go down at Venice Beach And I’ll try to wave goodbye On the day I leave this world ©words & music by Jim Patton

Working On the Wrong End Of Love He met her for breakfast at the Honeybee Out on Ritchie Highway She just ordered coffee, black, He didn’t touch his eggs She kept looking at her watch While he was studying at her face W-W-W-Working on the wrong end of love He thinks of how they started All the laughs they shared While she thinks about the dreams that died Or ended up nowhere They wonder how they got here And why life is so unfair W-w-w-working on the wrong end of love Like a condemned man eating his last meal Everything’s so bright; everything’s unreal While she can’t even remember how she used to feel W-w-w-working on the wrong end of love Let’s work awhile! He paid the check, left a dollar tip, She was already out the door He caught up with her by her Dodge Outside the High’s Convenience store He talked like he thought he could change her mind If he talked a couple minutes more W-w-w-working on the wrong end of love W-w-w-working on the wrong end of love W-w-w-working on the wrong end of love W-w-w-working on the wrong end of love © words & music by Jim Patton

27 Voices I’ve got 27 voices in my head 25 tell me I’d be better off dead Twelve get scared in the middle of the night One says: Jim you better hold on tight Most of them are pretty sure I’ve been misled By the other 26 voices in my head I’ve got 27 voices in my head 27 voices I’ve got 27 voices in my brain Two remind me of my greatest shame Three can’t even remember my name Four of them are clinically insane One voice howling like a hurricane At the other 26 voices in my brain I’ve got 27 voices in my brain 27 voices One voice fills me with regret Second voice says: forgive and forget Third voice tells me: that’s a sucker’s bet Fourth voice says: You take what you can get One voice wishing he had never met The other 26 voices in my head I’ve got 27 voices in my head 27 voices © words and music by Jim Patton

Fortunate Man This isn’t the life that I pictured But this is the life that I chose Measured by jewelry, My life isn’t much, I suppose Cause I’ve never made any money And fame was a Tuesday night stand In spite of all that I am a fortunate man For I have the fairest of lovers And I have the truest of friends And I have a place I can go When my darkness descends And I have a dream still inside me And I’ve got this guitar in my hand Measured by that I am a fortunate man La da da da da da da da da La da da da da da da da Measured by that I am a fortunate man For I have the fairest of lovers And I have the truest of friends Measured by that I am a fortunate man La da da da da da da da da La da da da da da da da Measured by that I am a fortunate man © words & music by Jim Patton

On Halloween Eve 2020, during the first year of the pandemic, we gathered in Ron Flynt's Jumping Dog Studio to perform a live stream show for our friends nationwide. Ron on bass, John Bush on percussion, and Stuart Adamson on lead guitar. This six song EP represents a cross section of the evening. The show was also videoed by Ron and Mark Caddell. A slightly edited version by Tom Weber is available on YouTube, containing the entire concert.
