lyrics

IF YOU ARE FEELING LOST AND GOD-FORSAKEN
LIKE YOU’VE BEEN TAKEN FOR A RIDE
YOU CAN HOP ON MY DREAM,
AND I WILL SHOW YOU WHAT I MEAN
WHEN I SAY THAT I WAS MEANT FOR LOVIN’ YOU

I’VE NEVER BEEN ACCUSED OF BEING CLEVER.
CLEVER’S NEVER BEEN A PART OF ME.
BUT I’LL MAKE YOU SMILE
AND WE CAN DRESS OURSELVES IN STYLE.
AND LIVE THE WAY THAT OTHER PEOPLE DO.

WE’LL OWN A HOUSE WITH A YARD
AND A GARDEN IN THE BACK OF OUR TWO-CAR GARAGE
FILLED WITH PRIDE AS WE RIDE IN OUR ’67 DODGE

SO IF THIS KIND OF LIFE DON’T SEEM TO SCARY
EXTRA ORDINARY’S HOW WE’LL BE
AND TO KEEP US ALIVE
I WILL FIND A NINE-TO-FIVE
AND YOU CAN STAY AT HOME AND WATCH TV.

WE’LL OWN A HOUSE WITH A YARD
AND A GARDEN IN THE BACK OF OUR TWO-CAR GARAGE
FILLED WITH PRIDE AS WE RIDE IN OUR ’67 DODGE

SO IF THIS KIND OF LIFE DON’T SEEM TO SCARY
EXTRA ORDINARY’S HOW WE’LL BE
AND LIFE WILL BE FINE
“CAUSE I’LL BE YOURS AND YOU’LL BE MINE
LIVIN’ BY THE RULES AND FEELIN’ FREE
(WE’LL JOIN THE BRIDGE CLUB!)
LIFE COULD BE A JOY FOR YOU AND ME
(LET’S HAVE A COOKOUT!)
LAYIN’ BACK AND LIVIN’ NATURALLY

about

Jack Nimersheim Fort Mitchell, Kentucky

Fifty years!

A half-century. That's how much time has passed since I first stepped on stage, picked up a guitar, and started playing music for the folks "out there".

Lucky for you, no recordings exist of those early performances. The albums on this page, however, provide a pretty good retrospective of the music I've been fortunate enough to help create, over the past fifty years.

Enjoy...
