Still On The Run

Buck Knife Tattoo deals with the desperate here and now America. With a prayer to the Earth, a tribute song "Dodge City Kid" to Don Michael Sampson's friend Dennis Hopper. Still on the run.
La Lucha Sin Fin

Songs like dust devils spinning
Across endless horizons
Moving quick, seen and glimpsed fast
Put down on paper with fevered pen
Bled into old microphones
Wound bronze strings ringing
Vibrations over cracked wood guitars
In a small smoky room
Illuminated by a neon American flag
Clinging to an adobe wall
With a red white and blue glow
Washing over whispered prayers
Unbreakable spirits running tough
Like hard edged diamonds
Reaching back to the sun
Rolling like old train wheels
Running down rough traveled rails
Hobos and ghosts, fire and smoke
Hope and despair
Cigarette sparks falling over
Unnamed outcast cities
U.S. county line jungles
Roofless hotels under torn blankets
Sleep with one eye open mi amigos
Sleep with one eye open ...

The songs for "Blue Motel" were written over a six month period. I had found a Yamaha Portatone portable keyboard at a yard sale for $15 several years earlier, and it had sat in the corner of my studio for a few years covered with cables, books, guitar strings, etc. I finally plugged it in and thought it sounded cool and was fun to play with. I used it on all these songs along with some old acoustic guitars and recorded everything to a Tascam 4 track cassette recorder that I have had for 24 years.

It was mastered by my friend Richard Dodd in Nashvlle, Tennessee. Richard has done a lot of great engineering and production work over the years with George Harrison, Tom Petty, Neil Young and the Traveling Wilburys.
