about

“Being the 7th studio album I have released - hence the album name - I am proud to share this landmark record with you all. May there be many more to come from my home studio here in South Armagh.

I hope you enjoy the twelve new songs featured on 7th plus the two bonus tracks.
Included is a new version of ‘All Souls Alive’ which first appeared on my New Horizon album back in 2007 & ‘Resurrection Man’ a track I co-wrote with Tony McLoughlin last year.

Like I say in the song ‘Back on the Road’

I’ll see you when i'm coming through
I’ll be coming to a place near you

Track Name: Lucky Streak
Lucky Streak

I went out searchin’, for love and grace
I met the man and he told me
Thing’ s shall fall right into place
Those who wait shall be rewarded
He said the last shall be first
Don’t hesitate when you reach it
Just trust your gut and instinct

Chorus
They say everything, It comes round my friend, comes round my friend
They say everything, is just a waiting round the bend
And we’ll get there in the end
I’m on a Lucky Streak
Gonna find that girl I wanna meet
Way down on lucky street
Things are just falling at my feet

Verse 2

I hit the ground running
And I swear I’m never going back
I went off the rails, but now I’m back on track
I caught the last train, just in the nick of time
Now I’m riding in to the sunset
Straight on down the line

Chorus
Track Name: One Of These Days
One Of These Days

I’ve been thinkin’, about a change of scenery
I’ve been looking for a different point of view
I’ve been struggling with the big picture
That’s in my head that I used to know for sure.

Chorus
These days , well I’ve been thinking about it
These days, got to do something about it
These days, one of these days.

Verse 2
I’m searchin’, for a new direction
Pull back the blinds let the sun that’s shining through
Don’t like the look of my own reflection
Woke up this morning in a mood for something new

Chorus

Bridge
One of these days, oh I’m gonna break the mold
One of these days, I’m gonna find my own way back home

Verse 3
I can’t drink as much as I used to
I can’t keep up tryin’ to run around after you
The world is changing gotta do what you’ve gotta do
No black or white just a different kinda blue
Track Name: Crushed It
Crushed it

I fell for you, so hard and true
You where my everything
You where my everything
You held my heart in the palm of your hand
I was at you’re mercy baby
I was at you’re mercy baby

U squeezed it, U burst it, U crushed it

Verse 2
You lead me on, I was the last to know
It’s true that love is blind, I never read the signs
You held my heart in the palm of your hand
I was at you’re mercy baby
I was at you’re mercy baby

Chorus
U squeezed it, U burst it, U crushed it
U bleed it, U broke it, baby U crushed it

Bridge
Baby you’re so cruel
You played me for a fool
You held my heart in the palm of your hand
And then you crushed it

Rpt 1st verse & chorus
Track Name: Say
Say
Baby will you wear my ring
Will u say I do
You’re the only woman that I want
I swear I swear I’ll be true

I know babe that you’re the one
And I’ll give all my heart to you
Please will u say u will
Will u be my girl, cause no one else will do

Chorus

Say you’ll love me for all time
Won’t u tell me so
Say you’ll love me all your life
I just gotta know

Verse 2
Baby you’re my fatal desire
Girl you set my soul on fire
I can’t live without you
Can’t breathe without you
So kiss me quick I’m dying

Baby in the dark of the night
I can’t get u out of my mind
I can’t sleep I’m tossing
Can’t sleep I’m turning
I need you right here by my side

Chorus

Please , please , please

Chorus

Please, do you love me, Tell me
Track Name: God's World
God’s World

In the cold heart of the night I hear my mother calling
Through the clatter and the clang of heavenly angels falling
From God’s world


I hear a woman cryin’, or was it really laughter
I hear a bullet flyin’, footsteps running after, God’s world

Chorus
God’s world can be a cold world
But it’s yours and it’s mine
It’s a hard world but it’s our world
The blind leading the blind leading the blind

Verse 2
Hold on to my hand, we don’t have much time now
We’ll cross this bleeding land
Try to find what’s left of God’s world

Chorus
Track Name: Reflection Of The Blues
Reflection Of The Blues (Ben Reel, John Hadley, Segio Webb)

chorus
When I look in the mirror
It couldn’t be clearer
The only thing I see is you leaving me alone
With the reflection of the blues

U told me that u loved me
Always thinking of me
Well I heard that one before
I cried and I cried
When I found out u lied
From the only one that tells me
The truth anymore

Chorus

You shattered my heart
The shards of glass
Are scattered all over the floor
I see my face a thousand times
And u walking out that door

chorus
Track Name: Back On The Road
Back On The Road

Chorus
I’ll be pulling out of here soon
Back on the road again
I’ll be heading off around noon
Back on the road
I’ll see you when I’m coming through
Back on the road

Verse 1
Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye
Baby when I get back home I’ll make it all worthwhile
I’ll see when I see you again
You won’t find it coming around till next time

Chorus
I’ll be pulling out of here soon
Back on the road again
I’ll be heading off around noon
Back on the road
I’ll be coming to a place near you
Still singing those homesick blues
Back on the road



Verse 2
Roaming from town to town
Like a gypsy I keep travelling around
Always on the move
Oh the cat’s eyes are my guide
To follow the white lines
Through the night

Chorus
I’ll be pulling out of here soon
Back on the road again
I’ll be heading off around noon
Back on the road
I’ll see you when I’m coming through
Back on the road
I’ll be coming to a place near you
Still singing those homesick blues
Back on the road
I’m going back, I’m going back now now
Track Name: Meant To Be
MEANT TO BE
When I met you all those years ago
I got that feeling, when you just know
U shot a cupid arrow straight through my heart
I fell in love with u right from the start

Chorus
Yes It’s all meant to be
It’s all gonna work out for you and me
They say It’s all meant to be
Things are gonna work out for you and me

Verse 2
Like a force of nature, U hit me hard
And in a whirlwind I was caught
When I saw u, I was blown away
And we’re still dancing in the wind today

Chorus/ Bridge
All my sorrow, all my pain
You sucked the poison from me, you give me strength

Verse 3
Now we’re half way down the tracks
Baby don’t turn around, don’t look back
Cause it could turn us into pillars of stone
U know we’ve come too far down the road

Chorus
It’s all meant to be
Track Name: Many A Time
Many A Time

Whiskey drenched night, beer stained floor
Smoked out room, ashtray filled morning
Close over the curtains, the sun will make you go blind
Tom Waits plays us out with Closing time

Chorus
Many a time, oh many’s a time
I’ve been here before oh many a time

Verse 2
Like trying to carry water in the palm of one hand
Like trying to grasp the mystery of God’s glories plan
Told all the secrets whispered in a dream
Wake up and it’s gone floating way down on stream

Chorus

Verse 3
Lost in confusion, lost in the haze
Lost in translation like a rat in a maze
Can’t break the circle or shatter the glass
Break all the old habits to be free at last

Chorus

Bridge
There’s something going
but nobody’s telling anybody what they know
There’s something going on behind the smoke and the mirrors
Most people just don’t wanna know
On a road that’s leading to nowhere

Chorus
Track Name: Gimme Some Room
Gimme Some Room

Haven’t much time
Just one life
I need some space to work it out
They say you talk about freedom
How does it feel
Baby don’t shout
You’re like a wagon wheel

Chorus
Gimme some room to mess about
Gimme some room to shake it out

Verse 2
Life’s too short
And you’re so young
Just one kiss
Baby we haven’t got long
Enjoy yourself
I hope you have fun
Cause you never know
When you’re day is done

Chorus
Bridge
I’m gonna say it again
Too many religions when there’s only one god in the sky
Too many kings when there’s only one king in the sky
Elvis Presley shake it out, come on Elvis

Verse 3
This circus is leaving
Time to bring on the clowns
It’s time to get off
This merry go round
You say you talk about freedom
How does it feel
Baby don’t shout
It’s whispering in the wind

Chorus
Gimme some room to mess about
Gimme some room to shake it out (rpt)
Oh let me shake it , I wanna shake it out
Watch me
Track Name: Given It All
Given It All
I’ve had it all and I’ve given it all
I’ve been around and I’ve seen it all before
I was here, I’ve been over there
I’ve been everywhere that’s been ever known

Chorus
How much more can I give
How much more have I got
You give yourself away
Maybe I’ve given it all

Verse 2
I’ve been reborn and I have died
I’ve passed through this way many’s of time
I’ve been shot and I’ve been stoned
I’ve been crucified up on that hill

Chorus

Bridge
For they whom have seen a glimpse of God’s mind
For they whom have seen the shining light
Won’t you please show me the way, show me

Verse 3
They say if there’s a will
Then you’ll find a way
Cause I’ve been a willing fool
And a price I’ve paid
I’ve been cursed but evenly blessed
And I hope I’ll be at peace when I rest

Chorus
Track Name: Coming Round Again
Coming round Again

Hear the sound of the leaves blowin’
Rustling in the wind
Autumns here and winters coming
The birds flyin’ south with their songs
And you won’t hear them sing
Until the early days of spring
It will be coming round again
It will be coming round again

See the light in the evening is fading
All the harvest is in
The farmer kisses his wife saying
Rest now dear our work is done
And he’ll pray for the rain
In the early days of spring
It will be coming round again
It will be coming round again

It will be coming round again
Thanks be to God for his blessing

Feel the chill a north east wind blowin’
Siberian wind
My father tells me the snow is comin’
And I say Christmas won’t be long
And you’ll hear the church choir sing
And the sound of sleigh bells ringing
It will be coming round again
It will be coming round again
Hear the sound of the leaves blowin’
