Nowhere 03:54
NOWHERE I want to live in the middle of nowhere of nowhere, middle of nowhere... I want to live in the middle of nowhere middle of nowhere USA I want to live in the middle of nowhere of nowhere, middle of nowhere... I want to live in the middle of nowhere middle of nowhere's where I stay I'm fine with the fashion the people here don't care if I'm matching walk out onto my front lawn and take a piss on a tree just before dawn I want to live in the middle of nowhere of nowhere, middle of nowhere... I want to live in the middle of nowhere middle of nowhere USA Cornfields, fence rows, barns and silos move over for the tractor on the rock road bald eagle flying up the Mary's River oh man, that makes me shiver traffic jam when the coal train crosses five minutes so hold your horses if you can't wait do the "end around" drive underneath to the other side of town slow down.........fooool -GUITAR SOLO- *dead rap* - Lost now on the country miles with Cassidy and I wish I had a rag-top Cadillac, with Annie in the back with her head in the roses and up comes Moses on a Quasar, but he didn't get far 'cause he ran into the Dark Star, Dupree's jellyroll blues and the blue suede shoes, brings me back to the US Blues and the middle of nowhere.... Leave me alone don't hit me on the cell phone I throw it on the ground now it's a dog bone finding relics withorut even trying what the hell is that? A mountain lion? groundhog dancing with Mr. Coyote I feel like I'm on peyote hiking through the Shawnee forest trees are scarce please leave some for us.....fooool! I want to live in the middle of nowhere of nowhere, middle of nowhere... I want to live in the middle of nowhere middle of nowhere USA

Blue Sky 04:45
BLUE SKY Lonely walking around this house my heart is bottomed out something's missing Anxious I can't take the pain strain upon my brain will I see her again? Desperate and time is passing slow I just need to know do you love me? 'Cause my world turns to blue sky a summer breeze when you walk by my world turns to blue sky your sweet smile makes me feel so high I feel so high so high *guitar I wonder If I bought a ring could we make this thing forever? forever? 'Cause my world turns to blue sky...........

The Unknown 05:04
THE UNKNOWN I've been a lot of places but I'm not sure where I'm going and I've seen a lot of faces but I can't say that I know 'em I've drank all kinds of water and I hope there's nothing in it and the air that I'm breathing keeps changing by the minute I don't know You don't know We don't know I'm wonderin' 'bout my money 'cause I don't know where I spent it and I'm searching for my honey and I don't know who she's been with I'm looking for the answers but all I get are questions I'm trying to play detective but I'm running into dead ends I'm thinking bout the future I wonder what is in it my past comes back to haunt me when I see you for a minute My mind is flashing pictures of the way we used to do it but the well is sucking air now It's nothing but a dry pit I don't know You don't know We don't know *enter psychedelic part* I've climbed out of the worm hole Got rid of all my baggage I ran across some friends there I gained some useful knowledge The meaning of the story is "catch it when you wake up" and never leave your lover on a bar stool with the hiccups I don't know.....fade

Barely Making It Monetarily speaking I'm running out of gas the gauge aint bouncing and it's going down fast coasting to the pump hope I don't hit a bump I'm barely making it Tires are leaking air and I aint got a spare I'm barely making it Don't feel bad for me I'm my own worst enemy It's the way I live my life I'm barely making it oooohhhhh barely making it barely making it barely making it My "Brand New Day" went to hell My "Blue Sky" turned grey I solved the "Unknown" and now it's time for me to pay bills are all RED I can't get ahead I'm barely making it can't answer my phone I think I need a clone I'm barely making it Don't feel bad for me I'm my own worst enemy It's the way I live my life I'm barely making it oooohhhhh barely making it barely making it barely making it *jam* I'm barely making it I'm barely making it I'm barely making it I'm barely making it Squeeze is "on" and I'm sliding into home I'm barely making it Gate's coming down I can hear the train's sound I'm barely making it Don't feel bad for me I'm my own worst enemy It's the way I live my life I'm barely making it

If Things Could Talk Ya might be gone tomorrow Ya might be gone today but if your ears are hearing this ya prolly gonna be ok time keeps moving on now it aint gonna wait around ya looking like a child's toy in the lost and found Roll me out now roll me out and dust me off Wad it up and throw it down now its time to dust me off The way that you treat me you know its awfully mean stuck between a lawnmower and an old washing machine pull me out the closet take me off the shelf sittin' in the dark all day is not good for my health roll me out now roll me outand dust me off no work all play today

about

Recorded in my spare bedroom one track at a time. A dual core pentium, focusrite 2i4 interface, Sterling st50 mic, yamaha dtx multi12(drum pad with hi hat pedal and kick trigger), alesis Q25, alvarez acoustic, fender strat, squire bass and Cubase AI6. Electric guitar on "Brand New Day" was recorded offsite in Larry's basement with Les Paul, fender amp and sm57. These tracks were recorded between March and July 2014. I got a wild hair a few months later and decided to release them as an EP (what the heck).

about

Jon Wolter Sparta, Illinois

From Sparta, IL. I'm a self-taught musician that started out playing drums at an early age, then guitar in my teens. Pretty much traded in my music career years ago for blue collar family life. I set up a studio in my spare room in 2014 and started writing. 4 songs into my new fascination I was stricken with sudden deafness in one ear. ... more
