about

Ramblin' Pan Kansas City, Missouri

Ramblin' Pan started at a time in my life where I had no other outlet to vent after failed relationships, death of loved ones, and the daily struggles of life. These songs, at the time I wrote them, felt like they just fell on my lap because it was easier too sing then speak. As time went on they became an avenue too encourage and inspire hope in others who saw my struggles. That is my goal! ... more

Track Name: The Tree's Will Teach You (If You Listen)
A sunny afternoon i drove my car out to the woods.
It was time for me to get away, dont ya ever just have those days?
I got off the path, found a patch of grass.
Sat down and just cleared my mind you know its hard just to find that time.
When right in front of me stood a giant oak tree.
Its branches flew through the air and with it took my every care.

This tree teaches me
the things that i want to be.

Because i don't want to live like this no more, no more

I can finally see the important things
its not about the money or how bigs the house or all the other things that we fuss about.
Love and ecstasy is flowing right through me
the greens, yellows, and sky so blue and all of it is living here with me and you.

this tree teaches me
the things that i want to be

Because i don't want to live like this no more, no more

If you listen to the tree's
Listen with all you got
they will speak to your soul
show you the things you forgot

This tree teaches me
the things that i want to be
Track Name: Sodom and Gomorrah
I fell in love with a girl from Sodom and Gomorrah boys
She had really cute blonde friends that stole my innocence.
Spend the days on my knees for God now, prayers and sacraments.
Don't fall in love with the girl from Sodom and Gomorrah boys.

Under covers with the shades drawn, wine did fill our blood.
Lips of poison kissed my pure heart, i've not healed my son
Blessed children guard your hearts now, you will thank me soon.
Don't fall in love with the girl from Sodom and Gomorrah boys.

Her words sound pure but they will send you to an early grave
Her lies will hypnotize, surprise and mesmerize calm your deepest fears
But when the times get to hard my brothers she'll abandon you



Don't fall in love with them girls from Sodom and Gomorrah!
Track Name: The River Woman's Daughter
The river woman's daughter
Lives by the water.
The woods are her homeland
The oceans her Father.

We spent our days growing
the future not knowing
Spell bound by beauty
Her every move was glowing.


We saw the moon rising
the forest now sighing
the thunder and lightning
brought sorrow and dying.

I've been coming to this river for 31 days in search of you
My friends tell me to leave it alone but i still have hope.
I still have hope of your return cuz its on that day
It's on that day that my heart will surely melt.
It's on that day that my heart will melt!
So won't you bring me peace to these dark forest leaves

The river woman's daughter
Live by the water.
The woods are her homeland
The oceans her Father.
Track Name: Papa
My papa worked himself to death
He drained out all the blood till there was nothing left.
He was always on the go
But he was a man after Gods own soul.

Tell me a story papa one that you never told
they said you'd never find another man with a larger heart of gold
They said you had to go away and that was just the end of the road.

Papa tried to be so strong
He taught me bout jesus and whats right from wrong
Its sad that he went away
but there will come a time there will come a day

When i see him face to face I'll hold him one last time
I know your living in my heart but your always on my mind
And i know there will come a day when its the end of my road

oh lord

Life is such a short road ya never know when your time is up
You might think its far away but it might be coming up
Would you be ready right now if it was the end of your road?

right now?

Papa worked himself to death
He drained out all the blood till there was nothing left
Track Name: A Prodigal's Tale
Sweet abandonment
brought me to my knee's
after all the tears i've cried
I can finally see

I am not alone
this grace i found
is the one place i call home

Awaken now my soul
with tales of the prodigal
how mercies reach proves long
to show now where i belong

You stole my heart
You've broken all the chains
for filthy rags
Your love You did exchange

Oh, Oh, Oh Oh!!!

(Amazing Grace)
