My Art

& Other 


Often Break

Words and music by Dave Granger and Clark Williams

Arranged by Clark Williams 

October 1980 

Time: 6:16

(Click our picture to listen to the original cassette recording)

If ever it's a rainy day

I pack myself up in my room

Then chase all the clouds away

Get myself back to you



Well I know that you're going to cry

Tears are running from your eyes

A piece of my love you take

Is one that so often break 


If ever you're miles away

I'll think of you the way you are

Your shining hair your ruby lips

Then it don't seem quite so far 

Harmonica lament break:



Very long jam session:


Repeat 2nd. verse




I Won’t Touch/Taking a Ride

Words and music by Dave Granger and Clark Williams

Arranged by Clark Williams 

October 1980 

Time: 9:40


(A song about getting over from being bullied


You might think I've hidden my shame

of things I've said and done

Who am I to play this silly game?

When there's no way to tell if I've won

No way to tell if I've won



I won't touch

No, I won't feel

Won't hurt as much because it won't even seem real

Won't feel pain

No, and I won't feel sorrow

I'll just wait and wonder who I am tomorrow


Quick Harmonica break:

And freedom is something that everybody needs

But you can't chase it blindly 

You can't run but must walk proud 

No peace of mind comes with its finding

Peace of mind sure is fine, sure is fine

I'd like to find peace of mind




Eclectic guitars and forsaken dreams

Are kept in closets to hide them

I think it's time to open up the doors

To do our best to find them

Do our best to find them



Oh yeah!

It's time to touch

Yes it's time to feel

It's going to hurt so much

But it's the only way I'll heal

I'll feel pain and soon I'll feel sorrow

I'll wake up knowing

I'm so happy

So happy



(Lead-out harmonica solo then go into "Taking a Ride")
