I grew up in Roseburg, Oregon. The place Johnny Cash called a “real town.” It's a timber town and a good place to grow up. I'm a third generation timber worker. It's descent living but I'm glad I escaped. Baseball was my first love. I started playing when I was 4. When I was 15, I heard God say “You're not gonna play sports after high school.” Two days later, I pitched the game of my life. With in a week, I couldn't throw from second to first in the air. I developed acute tendinitis. I played through the end of high school but it was never the same. The tendinitis doesn't flair up when I play my guitar. I guess I was meant to play rock n' roll instead.


Chorus: Grew up on the west coast close to the western sea
met a girl from the east coast, can't believe how lucky I can be

grew up in a small town my dad and grampa both worked in the mill
spent my time in saw mills can't say that I miss it any still


Grew up playing baseball and truth it consumed most of my time
threw out my arm in high school had to find a new way to unwind


got caught on punk rock and Green Day changed my life in 94
many years later, I still like dancing circles on the floor


from Until My Ankle's Better, released August 13, 2010
