It Aint Much

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

home sweet home is where I roam
turn the ringer off the phone and
strum three chords maybe four
don't need too much more from this life
pacify my mind with rhythm and rhyme
a melody to ease the passing of time

it aint much but it's enough

sitting on a front porch smoking with strangers
quietly soaking up the friendly faces and conversation
such a fine and simple thing
the common ground on the bottoms of our feet

it aint much but it's enough

go to work and I pay my bills
keep a roof over my head and the refrigerator filled
I've seen better days but I cant complain
living alone is still living, hey hey hey
we all do the best we can
on gold and gravel path

it aint much but it's enough

and we get by...

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
