Christian ~ husband ~ dad ~ minister ~ Texan ~ wordsmith ~ ASCAP ~ admires brevity, simplicity, exact right words. I started with funny lyrics in high school, then moved to country, even a few church hymns. I'm not a performer--just a writer, but my father and grandfather were hobbyist songwriters, so I'm third generation. Thanks for listening.

Genres: Contemporary Country

Instruments: Guitar

Influences: George Strait, John Williams

    CAMPFIRE IN THE RAIN

                                                         
                                                            

    CAMPFIRE IN THE RAIN Writer: Paul Weylan Deaver (ASCAP) Verse 1: Twilight on the warpath Painted for a fight Looking to a bloodbath Later in the night Options gettin’ narrow Bison disappear Settler takes an arrow Ain’t no winner here. Chorus: You can ride till your pony crumbles down Say you tried, be the last to stand your ground Empty words, loaded guns, and who’s to blame Fade away like a campfire in the rain. Verse 2: Blue coats on the trail Red man on the run Treaty gonna fail Diplomacy is done How high will the price go To take life for a life Look sharp to the shadow It’s war to the knife. (repeat chorus) Bridge: Dreams, in the end Were too big to defend That’s small consolation On the reservation. (repeat chorus) (c) 2017

    LITTLE GIRL GO

                                                         
                                                            

    LITTLE GIRL GO Writer: Paul Weylan Deaver (ASCAP) Verse 1: Where did that little girl go? Out of sight, like a sprite I can follow her glow Never know where she’ll land Turning loose of Dad’s hand Now, where did that little girl go? Chorus: Tea cups and dress-ups and chasing fireflies She stares up at me from her mother’s deep eyes We thought she’d be here like the moon and Big Dipper Then a young man appears holding out a glass slipper... Verse 2: Look at that little girl smile Out of sight, all in white As we walk down the aisle How did it come the day I would give her away? But, look at that little girl smile. (Repeat Chorus) Verse 3: Look at that little girl go Out of sight, in the night After stealing the show I guess I’ll just linger Wrapped ’round her finger Look at that little girl go. Look at that little girl go. (c) 2017 Paul Weylan Deaver

    TO THE MISTLETOE

                                                         
                                                            

    TO THE MISTLETOE Writer: Paul Weylan Deaver (ASCAP) Verse 1: There may not be a snowman in our yard But there’s a picture of him on our latest card Good will is in the air, and traffic’s at the mall Carolers everywhere, and what I love best of all... Chorus: My eyes light up like a Christmas tree Every time I see you looking back at me They say there’s something special ’bout this time of the year Well, every day’s a holiday whenever you’re here So strike a match under that old yule log And pour another cup of that cold egg nog Forget about the dishes, let the candle burn low And lead me to the mistletoe. Verse 2: You ask me what I’d like to get this year I want a set of memories so clear I’ll add them to the others—ghosts of Christmas past And baby, in my stocking, stuff a way to make them last. (Repeat Chorus) (c) Paul Weylan Deaver
