No Way

Bobby moved from Texas out to L.A.

Said: “Man, I’ve got dreams I’ve got to chase,

it would break my heart if they went to waste,

my heart can’t let this go, no way”

“I’d Do It All Over Again”

A kid packed his bags heavy,

threw them in his Chevy truck

Headed down to Texas,

where people had said he should try his luck

He spent his first months in Fort Worth,

staying w/a good friend of his,

Working days as a dishwasher

& spending his nights

playing gigs,

Being a musician it was a tough row to hoe

but even so, he was glad he made a go of it,

Years later when he’d succeeded,

He said “I’ve got to admit,

If I had to go back, I’d do it all over again”

Travis

Travis knew he loved music from an early age

Barely older than a toddler when he first hit a stage,

Every chance he got, the kid would play

Never cared how many dues he had to pay

He was sure he’d succeed one day

He had several good musician friends

Who taught & encouraged him,

Though there were other people

who at first thought he’d crash & burn

Eventually, even their respect he earned

He spent a lot of years working his training ground

Getting ever better, honing his unique sound

Unexpected Success Story

Mark never graduated High School, not even a GED

He wasn’t on the path to success as far as anyone could see

but all that changed, in the Summer of 1983

He built a business from scratch quietly

w/scraped together money & some creativity

Despite how lazy some thought him to be

He was a hard worker, surprisingly

He just wanted to earn his way non-traditionally
