drivin' below sea level and i don't care if you smoke
i'm steering with my knee, a beer in my left hand,
the other up your coat.
i'll probably go out on some stupid, dark, slippery dutch road...

woke up on the wrong side of the world, with a lesbian folk singe
yeah, i'm hurtin' but that's o.k., i got my pain killers
so much broken glass and blood on my guitar...

i'm livin' like a cowboy tonight in amsterdam

i'm way ahead of schedule, but i forgot the master plan
maybe you could leave the front light on
i'm takin' the long way home.

another gig, another bar, another tattooed waitress
she likes my voice, she like my face, i like the fact she's wasted
and she don't mean no harm...

i'm livin' like a cowboy tonight in amsterdam....


from steering with my knee, released January 1, 2001

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
