Lyrics, Chords & MP3s 

Here they are. Every song from the album, with its corresponding chord chart and full sound file. We hope you enjoy them, learn them, and sing them as often and as far and wide as you can.

A note about the quality of the sound files. In order to save space on our server, all low quality sound files include a full  recording of the song at low bit rates of around 32-40 Kbps.

The high quality sound files are 60-90 second samples only recorded at 96 Kbps. This not only keeps the sound files small, but by reducing the size of each file, it ensures you spend the minimum amount of time waiting for each song to download to your computer.

Now that you've heard the songs, and read the lyrics, you may prefer to purchase the commercial release of Sometimes I Wake Up Naked for the sheer sensual pleasure you will feel when holding the full CD package in your hands. 

You'll get a first class CD pressing which allows you to hear the music with the clarity and quality it was meant to be heard at; a 16 page booklet with full lyrics and notes; and the satisfaction that comes with knowing you are supporting an independent recording artist who is committed to his craft and his music.
