Okay, I’ll make this final part of my emotional song saga for the week. Cleaning up the crash. I’m starting to ease in to my life transition a little better now. Good friends definitely make it easier. I wrote the first line to this song way back in Feb. or March when this truck collided with the Simply Green recycling truck when I was standing there sorting on the curb. It missed me by about four inches and was two inches from decapitating the guy that was driving.
This is also an appropriate song for being in Atlanta and the insane traffic. I was in an accident the first day I was here riding with someone else.
I don’t know where this one came from. Probably sitting in too much traffic in too many states the last couple of days. Or running into old high school friends that look completely different now. Especially guys that have literally put on seventy p0unds of muscle since their scrawny school days. And if there was a category for sloppy heavy metal, this would be it.
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.
