Featured Artist

Jackson Pollock was an influential American painter, and the leading force behind the abstract expressionist movement in the art world.

Often Break

Arranged by Clark Williams

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

Chorus:

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:

Chorus:


Very long jam session:

Repeat 2nd. verse

I Won't Touch 2018


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

Chorus:

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

(Chorus)

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

(Refrain)

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

Tomorrow

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