Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles – original song

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles is an original song about the self-deception we all use to keep our dreams alive..and our lives moving forward. I hope it’s meaningful to you and that you enjoy it!

You can download it from bandcamp, and I’ll have it up on iTunes and the rest in a week or so.

Best,
Rick

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
by Richard McCargar

Verse 1

Rubber bands on peach crates
I played as George and John


There’s no future in it Son
I said, Someone’s gonna be the one


My dreams may be empty
but they don’t fade away

All hope may be lost
I don’t see it that way

Chorus:

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Haunt the Backroads of My Mind

Verse 2


Must have played their songs a million times
to make them come out right

Every note and chord was magic
the melody makes you high

Every song taught me a lesson
about what they felt inside

I put pen to paper
Pushed My Ego Aside


Chorus:


Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Haunt the Backroads of My Mind


Verse 3
 
When I started my song 
they began to sway


That’s when I knew 
I was born to play

My dreams may be empty
but they don’t fade away


All hope may be lost
I don’t see it that way


Chorus:

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Pass the Time

Empty Dreams and Broken Bottles
Help Me Free My Mind

Roxy the Italian Greyhound relaxes on the lawn after playing fetch.

My pet and friend “Roxy” the Italian Greyhound doesn’t want to come in after playing fetch, she wants to relax on the hot lawn…she’s a great dog! A true 20mph couch potato.

Western Wind – Original Music Orchestrated with electro-harmonix Mel9

“Western Wind” is an original music video composed by Richard McCargar and orchestrated with the new electro-harmonix Mel9 tape replay machine guitar pedal and played on a Guild Westerly Collection F-150 acoustic-electric guitar. It is the first song I’ve written with the orchestration in mind and made possible by this incredible mellotron style device reduced to the size of a guitar pedal. I love it!

Thanks for watching, hit “like” if you did!
