about

** Pre-release version, only available at BandCamp **

This album contains a collection of songs that won't fit any other album. It contains original songs as well as covers from Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and others.

The title "The Leftover Tracks" was chosen since I was planning to finish and release some unfinished songs. There are several songs on this collection that have been shelved away gathering dust for a long time, there are some covers on it I have been wanting to do for years and some brand new songs written while recording the unfinished songs..

Thanks for listening!

Track Name: I Could Fall in Love (With Any Woman)
I could fall in love,
with any woman
as long as she's sweet as you

I could fall in love
with any woman
as long as she's beauty like you

when the sun is fading in the west
Telling forth the coming of the dark night
the stars were shining bright
our love burning, hold you close to my chest

I could fall in love
with any woman
as long as she's named after you

I could fall in love
with any woman
as long as she loves me like you do

when the sunset was fading in the west
Telling forth the coming of the dark night
the stars in the dark shining bright
our love burning, hold you close to my chest

I could fall in love
with any woman
as long as she would be you
Track Name: Who'd A Thunk (Original Demo)
Who’d A Thunk
Words and music by:
RJF Mensies & DT Brinkman

How is life on your side of the border
I wonder if I’d really like to know
We went from silent to quiet in a daze
Who’d a thunk we’d be fallin’ from grace

We wasted too much time testing the water
Where we should’ve dove right in
If i were you i’d blame it on me
Call it a fear, a fear of falling

Chorus
I know it’s so hard to live without
The things you made me do without
All got lost in an angry shout
Tell me, there’s a way to work things out

How is life on your side of the border
I’m pretty sure now i need to know
You’d better get your papers all in order
Travel on a trip outside your mind

Chorus

We wasted too much time testing the water
Where we should’ve dove right in
If i were you i’d blame it on me
Call it a fear, a fear of falling

Chorus (2x)

Tell me, there’s a way to work things out (2x)
Track Name: Wagon wheel (Rock me Mama)
"Wagon Wheel"
(originally by Old Crow Medicine Show & Bob Dylan)

Heading down south to the land of the pines
I'm thumbing my way into North Carolina
Staring up the road and pray to God I see headlights
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a-hopin' for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey momma rock me

Running from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now
Oh, north country winters keep a-getting me down
Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey momma rock me

Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke
But he's a-heading west from the Cumberland gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee
I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she's the only one
And if I die in Raleigh at least I will die free

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey momma rock me
Oh, rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey, hey momma rock me

Oh, so rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel (I wanna feel)
Hey, hey momma rock me (momma rock me, momma rock me)
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
(I wanna rock like a south bound train)
Hey momma rock me
Rock me
Track Name: I Still Can't Remember (If It Rained in September)
I Still Can't Remember (if it rained in September)
02-05-2014 (c) R. Brinkman's Barking Aunts Project

Well I still can't remember / if it rained in september
or the wheather in may / if the sun went astray
But I'll never forget / on the day we first met
the sun went hiding / for the light you're providing


the roses will grow
the love force will flow
the sun sure will shine
if you would be mine!

Na-naaaa-na-na-naaaa-na-naaah,
Naaaa-na-na-naaah,
Na-naaaa-na-na-naaaa-na-naaah,
Naaaa-na-na-naaah

they say it's all wrong / to sing a lovesong
about roses so red / and violets so blue
but what do i care / I want to see you somewhere
in a hard rain in september / or a snowstorm in december

the roses will grow
the love force will flow
the sun will shine
if only you would be mine!

Na-naaaa-na-na-naaaa-na-naaah,
Naaaa-na-na-naaah,
Na-naaaa-na-na-naaaa-na-naaah,
Naaaa-na-na-naaah

The love of my life / will you be my wife
In your cute blue dress / no I won't care less
Thirthy days in September / no one I'll remember
If you would be mine / any day would be fine

the roses will grow
the love force will flow
the sun will shine
if only you would be mine!

Na-naaaa-na-na-naaaa-na-naaah,
Naaaa-na-na-naaah,
Na-naaaa-na-na-naaaa-na-naaah,
Naaaa-na-na-naaah

----- 1 -----

She dyes her hair / to hide the truth
puts make up on / to bring back youth

but hey hey mamma
don’t you talk like that teen-age daughter o’ yours
hey hey mamma
don’t you talk like that teen-age daughter o’ yours

the way you behave / common as an old shoe
you’re no sweet sixteen / start behaving Irine!

hey hey mamma
don’t you talk like that teen-age daughter o’ yours

----- 2 -----

Well I learned to love you / instead of my hate
If even I can change, it's never too late ...

hey hey mamma
don’t you talk like that teen-age daughter o’ yours
hey hey mamma
don’t you talk like that teen-age daughter o’ yours

Put your money where your mouth is / Stop the kiss and tell
No one’s buying , whatcha tryin’ to sell

hey hey mamma
don’t you talk like that teen-age daughter o’ yours

hey hey mamma
don’t you talk like that teen-age daughter o’ yours

the way you behave / common as an old shoe
you’re no sweet sixteen / start behaving Irine!

hey hey mamma
don’t you act like that teen-age daughter o’ yours
Track Name: The Badge Said Nicky
The Badge said Nicky
2014 (c) R. Brinkman/J. Zheutlin


The badge she wore / said her name was Nicky
First day at work / handing back money / was still tricky

She made a mistake / didn't give me change enough
Just turned sixteen / first jobs can be though

She was sitting there / with her dog / in the train
Hair all gray / feet hurt from walking / but she won't complain

Wrinkles in her face / A bag, holding her stuff
growing older can sometimes / be so tough

She must have been / so beautiful / when she was young
like a girl named Nicky / Wearing a badge / with her name

She was once young / With a passion for life
But her bosses came along / with a surgical knife.

Cut out someones passion / her joy and her smile
Leave her with an empty shell / who wished / she could die

So if the day comes / they'll send Nicky home
I hope she won't be / so all alone /

God help us,... what have we done
