I started to go rent an aerator and buy fertilizer to get my yard going the right way this year. But I got some sage advice from a lawn guy who made me realize that that would mean much more mowing and maintenance. Don’t get me wrong, I actually love yard work and my back yard is a 16 hole chipping course complete with elevated greens, fairways and rough. I’m pleased to say that I do everything gas-free once again. No gas will be consumed in the mowing of my yard this year.
Anyway, I guess that’s where “Mow Mow Mow the Grass” came from. I actually wrote the catch phrase on the recycling route the other day while I was watching people mow yards all day.
Today started out looking like a beautiful day. After raining for a few days it actually looked like spring was finally here. Then about eleven it became grey and cold again. Oh well. It was too wet to play golf today anyway.
“Daydream Sharing” is about lying around on a rainy day being lazy. This is actually the opposite of what I do on lazy days. I usually work extra hard in the studio on those days.

Finally a few sunny days!! Hopefully we’ll get some spring like weather now.
Tonight’s song is about how as we get older we let some of our more romantic habits go. We’ve got to remember to have fun and be more carefree. Too often we get bogged down by real world problems and forget that we’re here to be joyous and to live like children.
March is rolling in and like clockwork we’ve got another winter weather advisory. I think I’ve mentioned that I’ve canceled four gigs already this year because of weather and it’s starting to get old.
Not to mention driving a ten thousand pound truck in the snow and ice. Actually that’s kind of fun.
“Spring in Asheville” is kind of recognizing a few good and bad things in the world today while wishing for spring at the same time. I really don’t hate the cold as much as I make it out in this song. I actually don’t mind it much.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
