“Empty Dreams” Released On iTunes and Spotify!

Empty Dreams is an original song by Richard “Rick” McCargar about how our dreams sustain us no matter how little others may understand our vision and passion…and it’s now available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google and all major download/streaming services!

Musicians and singers start by learning the songs of those we admire, hoping to move beyond that to our own, but it’s really a dream that sustains us whether or not we “make it”. I hope you find it to be meaningful in your life..

Lyrics:

Empty Dreams
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

Now available on iTunes: “Little Martha” acoustic instrumental

This is my cover of the classic acoustic instrumental composed by Duane Allman. On the original both he and Dickey Betts played, so I arranged this for a single guitar.

Duane co-wrote songs with his brother Gregg and Dickey Betts, but “Little Martha” is the only song written solely by Duane before having the motorcycle accident that killed him at age twenty-four in 1971.

A Fool Such As I – great fun covering this classic rock song!

Today I did something just for the fun of it…..I covered Bill Trader’s song “A Fool Such As I” made famous by Hank Snow and Elvis Presley. I added the lyrics to the video for anyone who may want to sing along – karaoke style.

Hope you enjoyed it!
Rick

Lyrics:

(Now and Then There’s) A Fool Such as I

Now and then there’s a fool such as I

Pardon me, if I’m sentimental
When we say goodbye
Don’t be angry with me should I cry

When you’re gone, yet I’ll dream
A little dream as years go by
Now and then there’s a fool such as I


Now and then there’s a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through

I’m a fool, but I’ll love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there’s a fool such as I


Now and then there’s a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through

I’m a fool, but I’ll love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there’s a fool such as I
Now and then there’s a fool such as I
Now and then there’s a fool such as I
