about

The Walking Touris a collection of songs I often perform in House Concerts. These are some of my favorite songs to sing and play, especially within the intimate setting of a living room with a few friends. It is an eclectic mix of folk, blues, gospel and Jazz... reflecting some of my journey as a musician and songwriter.

Some of the songs are 'alternative' recordings to previous album versions, reflecting a more acoustic or unplugged interpretation.

With the 2016 House Concert tour getting ready to get under way I want to make these songs available. I look forward to singing them with you soon.
Cheers,

Chris

Track Name: Walking in the Woods
I was walking in the woods
what a glorious day
I would walk on forever
if I could find a way
everything I owned
or that once owned me
I soon discarded
there amongst the trees

won't you come walking
walking with me
I'll take you places
your eye never seen
don't no ticket
or fancy wardrobe
put on your walking shoes
lets hit the road

I was walking in the woods
breathing in the air
with every step taken
I'd lose another care
and soon I was leaving
a trail of junk behind
things that were weighing
heavy on my mind

won't you come walking....

I was deep inside in the woods
I was naked to the core
and into a quietness
I'd never known before
I was so happy
living in the wild
finding such pleasure
in the ways of a child
Track Name: Walking in the Woods (Acoustic)
I was walking in the woods
what a glorious day
I would walk on forever
if I could find a way
everything I owned
or that once owned me
I soon discarded
there amongst the trees

won't you come walking
walking with me
I'll take you places
your eye never seen
don't no ticket
or fancy wardrobe
put on your walking shoes
lets hit the road

I was walking in the woods
breathing in the air
with every step taken
I'd lose another care
and soon I was leaving
a trail of junk behind
things that were weighing
heavy on my mind

won't you come walking....

I was deep inside in the woods
I was naked to the core
and into a quietness
I'd never known before
I was so happy
living in the wild
finding such pleasure
in the ways of a child
Track Name: This is Our Time
This is Our Time

Let it go, let it go
That old lie, you hold so tight
Hand it over let it be mine
And I will cast it far into the night

Make a way, for my love
And all the plans I have for you
Make some space in the days ahead
This is our time

Let them go, let them go
All the reasons why, that its too late
Hand them over, let them be mine
I'll nail them to the cross, I won't hesitate
lets make a way now for your desires
and the longing of your soul fulfilled
how I've waited for this moment
This is our time

So, what you gonna do
What you gonna do
It's me and you
Yeah it's me and you time
Track Name: More Than Enough
When I'm cold you clothe me with the sun
When I thirst you pour out your rain
When I hunger you find ways to feed my soul

You're more than enough .... For me

When I'm lost its you that I will find
When I stumble it’s right into your arms
when I forget who I am I'll see you in the mirror

I like the story of the feeding five thousand
Everybody had their fill and there was so much left over

When I hate its you that will forgive
when I'm guilty you carry all my shame
when I'm broken you fill in the missing pieces
Track Name: Time Stands Still
I once had
A fine reputation
All wrapped in
so many obligations
So I let it fall
Somewhere beside the road
I no longer carry
That heavy load

Time stands still when I'm walking with you
Even in the midst of a storm
Bullets and shrapnel fly around my head
But none of that matters anymore

I can wear the insults
I can bear the pain
I can be that statue
In the pouring rain
I may seem a poor man
No glitter to my way
But I will have this treasure
For the rest of my days

Time stands still…

Don't know where I'm going
And I care less where I'm from
I've got a friend makes me
Feel I do belong
Never thought that i could
Find such happiness
Even in the midst of all my
Humanness

Time stands still…
Track Name: The Silence
my ego finds comfort in answers
safer when the answers are old
While my soul is a child of contradiction
Content to leave those mysteries unsolved

My soul cries out for the silence
In the silence my soul will be free
to break down the walls of my addictions
yeah My soul knows just what is good for me

I crave after people interaction
and who I am and what I do to be known
while my soul never looks to the mirror
With its eye towards the path unknown

My Soul cries out...

Oh my soul, oh my soul
my soul knows what is good for me
Oh my soul, Oh my soul
yeah my soul knows what is good for me

I want more (and more) of all that I have now
My ego is never satisfied
while my soul's needs are met in the silence
this is where my soul comes alive
