America

Hey Guys Here is one of my newest songs. I posted a link to you tube so you can hear it as well. It was written over The Memorial Day Holiday in 2014. The video features myself and an Old Skimmer Puke Buddy of mine D.W. Butcher on harmonica, and his wife Anne on tambodrum. I've known him since 1974....

Re: Night Flight (On a DC-6)

Re: Love and Desire

Another great explanation of what it is like to be in love, homesick and burnt out all at the same time...We call it Submariners Disease...Hungry, Horny and Sleepy all three at the same time... :smt005

Re: Missing You

Great story man...Great poem too. Thanks for sharing. People will never know about every day heroes like "The Chief" if you don't tell them about him. I can't begin to recall all the acts of bravery I witnessed in my 5 years on the Madison...It truly was Steel Ships and Iron Men...

Re: Groton Bound

The S & M song

Okay, take the children out of the room...This one is a little bit risqué...It was written by myself, Crash Collision, and several other Madison Crew Men whom I can't recall... I'm pretty sure Gene Ammons (RIP) brother was part of it too...It's in response to a sea story that MTC Smith told about a ...

40 feet of rope

This was actually the first song I ever wrote or had a hand in writing...It launched my career as a poet and song writer...It was also a song that I wrote with Clint Green a bud from Sub school that I stayed in touch with for years...Sadly I have lost touch with him...It's in a bluegrass style...We ...
