This Is Paradise


Based on Elmore's "I can't stop lovin". A lot of this first CD was just looking through my Elmore James collection and saying "now what kind of song do I want to write", then with the Elmore influence, seeing what happens after sitting with a guitar, a bottleneck and a pen and paper for a couple of hours. It's amazing how far a new song can be away from the original influence. It amazes me, this one's not SO far away, but a nice little ditty

We often play it first or second song, if we have to start quiet at a gig

I don't have to dream, I've got my baby at night (x 2)
And every day I think "Hell - this is Paradise"

I wake up every morning with an angel by my side (x 2)
And every day I think "Hell - this is Paradise"

Well it's heaven on earth - she's hot as fire, cool as ice (x2)
And every day I think "Hell - this is Paradise"
