Story behind the song
My producers Robert Metzger, and Tony Migliore asked me to write eight new songs for my project, this is one. Recorded at Chelsea Studios in Brentwood, TN (Nashville) Some of the greatest musicians in Nashville are on the cd. Mike Brown was the one who made it possible for me to do this. My sister Wanda and my Brother in-law Allen went with me. Mike was there for the first session.
JUST ONE DAY AT A TIME THIS ALL I ASK
ONE DAY'S ALL I NEED I'LL TAKE AS I CAN
TRAVELING DOWN THESE LONELY ROADS
LOOKING BACK ON MY LIFE
WONDERING WHERE I'D BE IF I HAD DONE IT RIGHT
BEEN ALMOST EVERYWHERE HAD MANY LOVES YES I ENJOYED THEM ALL
BUT ONE EVEN MORE SHE WAS EVERYTHING TO ME I LEFT HER BACK IN TENNESSEE JUST COULDN'T STAY HAD TO GO MY WAY
AS I LOOK BACK ON MY LIFE COULD HAVE SETTLED DOWN
BUT WENT TO SEE THE WORLD AND BE FREE
NOW I'M OLDER BUT NOT MUCH WISER AND I'M BACK WHERE I STARTED FROM YES LOOKING BACK THERE'S NOT THAT MUCH TO SEE
