  • The Way of Happiness

    The Way of Happiness

    04/12/2020 Duração: 03min

    The Way of Happiness is about Drinking. In this song the main character sees a light in the window of the house where his true Love lives. He knows he should go to her to show her his affection and for the comfort of them both. Instead he is drawn by the pint there in his Father's old flask and for whatever irrational reason, he would rather get drunk alone than explore Love. The Way of Happiness Words & Music by John Barrett & JW Brown There’s a light in her window this evening But there’s a pint here in Daddy’s old flask I should go to her yes, but it’s here that I’ll stay For The Way of Happiness For The Way of Happiness You know the prince and the pauper they’ll forever get alone Give a pint to them each and they’re blessed But the lovers they leave, ah forever will grieve! For The Way of Happiness For The Way of Happiness So with Daddy’s old pint for my courage And with Mother’s fine locked up old locket I went off to uncover the secret To The Way of Happiness The Way of Happiness And Love it mean

  • Hold On

    Hold On

    04/12/2020 Duração: 03min

    I wrote this song sometime around 1985 when I found out that my parents were getting a divorce. It was originally written for my Mother who is now 82 years old. I played a very early version of this song for her many years ago and she really liked it. But I've never told her the story behind my inspiration for writing it. For her it's just a song of hope. Hold On Words & Music by John Barrett & JW Brown Rain falls - no one calls But nothing last forever Meanwhile oh child forget about the rain Just Hold On to your beautiful ways And darling if you need, Hold On to me Darling if you need, Hold On you’ll see I can be your goodness try to bring you up I can be your holding on Goodbye’s - someone always cries But nothing lasts forever So won’t you smile for me child You’ll get along ok just Hold On to your beautiful ways And darling if you need, Hold On to me Darling if you need, Hold On you’ll see I can be your goodness try to bring you up I can be your holding on

  • Loves The Finest Thing

    Love's The Finest Thing

    04/11/2020 Duração: 02min

    I wrote this song many years ago and it's still one of my favorites. I do miss the podcast, but am enjoying immersing myself once again in my music. I've never had children or a family of my own and I guess these songs are the closest thing to children I have in my life - other than my beautiful dog Maxwell of course! Each of these songs means a lot to me and each represents a part of my self and my journey. Love’s The Finest Thing Words & Music by John Barrett & JW Brown Well why don’t you all come along with me Easiest thing that you ever did see All you need’s your heart and mind And you won’t need that body in time Because Love’s The Finest Thing you know I tell you cause it’s true And it’s the easiest thing It’s the easiest thing to do Well why don’t you all come along with me Let’s go down to the river to see Talkin bout love and takin time A little bit of love will do you fine Because Love’s The Finest Thing you know I tell you cause it’s true And it’s the easiest thing It’s

  • Thankful

    Thankful

    04/11/2020 Duração: 03min

    I wrote this song on piano many years ago when I was feeling pretty low about being single for so long. It's an expression of genuine Thankfulness for all I have in my life. It's also a musical prayer sent up to the Heavens asking for Love to come my way. So far I'm still single though I've had a few minor train wreck relationships in the mean time. I hope you enjoy the guitar version of this song. Thankful Words & Music by John Barrett & JW Brown My old man he once said, “Son you’re better off livin’ than dead” Now I’m still breathin’ you see, guess I’m doin’ it all for me I’m Thankful for all I’ve got, but I never seem to get a lot I’ll cry an ocean of tears, yeah I’ve been doin’ it here for years And might that ocean run dry – does it really matter when you’re high? I’m Thankful for all I’ve got Lord but I never seem to get a lot I never seem to get a lot of what I really need And Love is what I really need Just to be sure, I’ll spend a little time prayin’ on my knees Saying Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord

  • When Im Here With You

    When I'm Here With You

    04/11/2020 Duração: 02min

    This song was written many years ago in a way that surprised me at the time. I remember sitting down with the guitar and my little cassette tape recorder. I pushed record and then began to play. This song came out almost exactly like you'll hear on this recording. One of the few times when I felt like a song was given to me instead of written by me. It's a simple little song that always makes me smile. Love to all of you! JB When I’m Here With You Words & Music by John Barrett & JW Brown Well when I die just bury me Wherever you please, wherever you please And I hope you wont’ be needin me Yeah when I die and rise above Just cover my body with the cold damp mud It don’t matter to me, it don’t matter to me Well it don’t matter to me you know I lose my body and I’ll use my soul It don’t matter to me, it don’t matter to me But when I’m here with you you know Everything matters and it goes so slow When I’m Here With You Well when I die just bury me Wherever you please, wherever you please And I hope you w

  • If Shes The One

    If She's The One

    04/11/2020 Duração: 56s

    This is one of the shortest songs I've ever written. However, there is a 2nd part to it that requires a big band (really). The melodic theme is perfect for a big band and if I had the money right now, I'd hire the Duffy Jackson Big Band. They're here in Nashville and one of the best Big Bands in this part of the country. This song is a call to all young people who have a crush on someone. If you want her, need her, feel like you love her (or him), let her know! Don't wait. Next week they might meet someone else when that someone else could be you today. If you ask them out and they say no, don't worry about it. There are many fish in the sea and personally I find myself falling in love several times every day. And my own problem is probably the same as yours. I'm scared to death of rejection. But we shouldn't be. Life is short and love can last a lifetime so let's take that risk and ask that person out! Peace & Love to you guys! JB If She’s The One Words & Music by John Barrett & JW Brown If She’s The

  • Everything is Alright

    Everything is Alright

    04/11/2020 Duração: 03min

    I wrote this some some years back when I was suffering greatly from depression. I lived alone and in a place where I didn't know many people. At that time my guitar was my best friend and one day this song just came out. I polished it and cared for it and turned it in to what you find here. These days I still live alone but not really. I have a great dog named Maxwell and he is like a son to me. The only child I've ever had. When things seem bad or you feel depressed, remember This: There is One True Magic that will take your depression away and it works every time. And what is that One True Magic? It is the act of CREATION. Creation can mean writing a poem or a note to a friend. Creation can mean cooking a meal - even a simple meal like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or spaghetti with only garlic, butter, salt, pepper. Creation can mean reading something. When we are reading our minds are busy creating images as our eyes grab the symbols from the page and turn those symbols into our very own unique

  • Thinkin About Home

    Thinkin About Home

    08/07/2020 Duração: 04min

    I wrote this song back in 2000 when I first moved to Nashville. I was living in a tiny basement on 17th Avenue South - or Music Row Junior as I call it. The woman who lived upstairs had a little white dog that did nothing but bark. It nearly drove me crazy. But instead of losing my mind, I wrote Thinkin' About Home, my very first Nashville composition. I have an old studio recording of it with some great pickers including Dave Pomroy on upright bass. We recorded at Jay's Place studio just a few blocks away - also on 17th. But about a year ago I realized the song needed an important lyric change plus a short bridge and so, nearly 20 years later I re-release this song with just me and my old 1976 Gibson MK-35 guitar. One day when I have some money, I'll get back into the studio to re-record it but for now this simple version will have to do. That's my dog Maxwell in the photo. He's over 13 years old and still going strong despite his limitations. Man I know the feeling. : ) I hope you enjoy this song whic

  • You Make The Rain Go Away

    You Make The Rain Go Away

    13/05/2020 Duração: 01min

    I wrote this song some years back as a Valentine's Day present for my dearest Friend in the world. I still plan to record it one day with some nice cello parts and maybe a harpsichord solo. The secondary title for this song is: "Connie's Song" You Make The Rain Go Away (Connie’s Song) Words & Music by John Barrett & JW Brown You are the fairest girl here in Eden You are the loveliest flower in bloom A sunny day You Make the Rain Go Away And I am in love with you You are as sweet as peaches and topping You are delightfully lightfully true A capital A for an Angel yeah And I am in love with you But not long ago My heart it beat so slow I guess it was waiting for you But now I know – our love will grow and grow and grow And I’ll be holding you soon You are my maiden voyage of laughter You make me smile with the things that you do A sunny day You Make the Rain Go Away And I am in love with you - yes it’s true I am in love with you
