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

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

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

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…

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

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
