about

Though I hold a special place for each of these tunes on this record. "Enjoy the Ride" might be my favorite Song off this CD.
It was one of those Key West Mondays that are usually spent getting over the weekend. But this particular Monday morning I was practicing and fooling around with an idea that had been in my head for a few days. Then like a bolt of lightning this song started coming down and in 45 minutes it was finished. Mac MacAnally once told me that when a song starts happening, be ready with pen and paper and get ready. So that's what I did. As the 3rd verse was going down I was laughing and thinking that I would get back to it. "Just finish it" is what I kept telling myself. As it turns out the 3rd verse is my favorite and is the perfect ending for the song and that weekend.

lyrics

Enjoy the Ride
(J. Birchfield)

Well I just met a girl that stole my soul
She’s got eyes of hazel and hair of coal
She’ll take you all the way to Heaven
In just one night
And leave you prayin’ for forgiveness
In the mornin’ light

She might be the death of me
You might think she’s not my kind
But you should fell the way I feel
When she looks into my eyes
You’d give it all up
You’d cash it all in
Say good-bye to your peace of mind
Throw caution to the wind
And just enjoy the ride

She’s as wild as a copperhead soft like rain
A direct descendent from the Dalton Gang
She’ll steal your heart with just one touch
Ya know the girl can’t help it
Cause It’s in her blood

(Chorus)

(Solo)

Well I love to watch her dance
And she likes to hear me sing
She puts the rhythm in my heart And
the twang in my strings
She want’s me all to herself at the end of the show
So she can take me back home
And do the dose-doe

She might be the death of me
You might think she’s not my kind
But you should fell the way I feel
When she looks into my eyes
You’d give it all up
You’d cash it all in
Say good-bye to your peace of mind
Throw caution to the wind
And just enjoy the ride
Throw caution to the wind
Just enjoy the ride
