Greetings, everyone. This is a song I wrote that pretty much sums up transitioning from last year to this year. I included the lyrics so you can sing along....thanks so much for listening!!!! "Regrets" Copyrighted 2021, Words and Music by Andy Garrett; All Rights Reserved. V1) There goes another year gone by, thats funny nothing really changed, So many people asking why, why are we here it seems so strange? Pre-chorus) I don't know what I'd do if something happened to this world, Looking back on life did I do the best I could? Or would I do it all again? Chorus) When we face our regrets, the hands of time coming 'round the bend, Better try and make amends, before the last regret becomes the end. V2) Another tear was shed today, another protest on the street, More little children gone astray, the road to violence at their feet. Pre-chorus) I don't know what I'd do if something happened to this world, Looking back on life did I do the best I could? Or would I do it all again? Chorus) When we face our regrets, the hands of time coming 'round the bend, Better try and make amends, before the last regret becomes the end. https://open.spotify.com/track/2bigP0wjkrRynT3SxkBmsw?si=Xiq28rveTLin64y_cjBm3w

Hello, everyone. Here is a song I wrote about growing up in a small town....where alot of the people there always seemed to be living in the past, and never moving forward in life because of it. It's kind of a cross between Pink Floyd and Tom Petty, and I hope you like it. I included the lyrics....thanks for checking it out!!!! "You Can" Copyrighted 2020, Words and Music by Andy Garrett; All Rights Reserved. V1) Staring through the glass, wondering where my life is going to, Feelings from the past, always there, And the dream, of you and me, is all I see. Bridge) My life going in a circle, takes me back where I began. Chorus) Don’t live your life, in the past, Move forward now, you can. V2) Wishing it would last, is the story of forgotten love, Crying never brings no one, back, All the roads, gone down before, are all the same.

Chorus 1) You Do The Best With What Ya Got, she said to me, it don't take alot, honestly, hard workin' luck, from the sky above, you don't have to be a star, You Do The Best With What Ya Got. Verse 2) My Daddy always gave me great advice, he told me not to be afraid, to roll the dice, live you life with no regrets as far as you can go, show the world there's nothin' you don't know. Chorus 2) You Do The Best With What Ya Got, he said to me, it don't take alot, honestly, hard workin' luck, from the sky above, you don't have to be a star, You Do The Best With What Ya Got. https://open.spotify.com/track/5TFCdznQRRpopnEtqep4Lf?si=cF4akPs1QCeTtlm6tc2Blg

Greetings, musical friends. Along with the Covid virus of this year; I couldn't help but notice how many of my friends lost pets this year, also (especially dogs....seems like over 100 of my friends, atleast). So; here is a song I wrote dedicated to them titled "Rainbow Bridge" (it is written through the eyes of a dog trying to relay one last message to their owner), and I hope it helps them find some peace. I also included the lyrics....thanks so much for listening each week!!!! "Rainbow Bridge" Copyrighted 2020, Words and Music by Andy Garrett; All Rights Reserved. Verse 1) My life has been a great one, never had to be alone, Someone always there to love me, Someone always there at home, I knew it couldn't last forever, But still pretended it would, Always got all the attention, And all the love I could. Chorus) I don't want to leave, I like it here to much, with you; I don't want to go, I just want to stay, with you; You gave me all your love, but now I must cross the rainbow bridge. Verse 2) The times we spent together, Great memories we shared, Being one of the family, I felt just like a kid, But life is not forever, Although I wish it was, The days go by too fast, I don't like it because.

Hello, musical friends. Here is a song I have been wanting to release since the start of this virus crap. It's called "Again", and pretty much sums up how all of us in the entire world are feeling right now....wondering if we will ever get back to normal. I also included the words so you can sing along....thanks so much for listening each week!!!! "Again" Copyrighted 2020, Words and Music by Andy Garrett; All Rights Reserved. Chorus) Will we ever co-exist again? A handshake or a hug with a friend, A room full of family, just for some comforting, will we ever be that way again? V1) Imagine someone born into the world, never knowing how it was before, No sense of touching, or feeling how good love could be, cut off like a flower from its stem. Chorus) Will we ever co-exist again? A handshake or a hug with a friend, A room full of family, just for some comforting, will we ever be that way again? V2) Looking at a screen is not the same, I can't look in your eyes and read what they say, It isn't quite like being there, to feel the wind blow in our hair, and hear the birds that echo in the trees. (Guitar Lead) (Chorus) (Ending) https://open.spotify.com/track/0dTfeb1iirptKWrMbEYM7z?si=3AQHj6cOQDyyTA_e9FO7Kw

Greetings. All I am going to say about this weeks new song is that, it is the best song my Wife and ... read moreI have ever written together and put out. She wrote the words....I wrote the music....and, I tried my best to find my inner Outlaw Country voice for it (in the style of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, etc). Here is "She Loved Him A Little Too Much"....and, we included the words for your listening pleasure!!!! "She Loved Him A Little Too Much" Copyrighted 2020 Words by Patricia Garrett, Music by Andy Garrett; All Rights Reserved. V1) Today she cried a little too much, Her eyes are red and they'll both swollen shut, And she called out his name when the phone call it came, And the doctor explained he was dead. V2) No visits no funeral they said, As she lays there alone in their bed, And the gun he had bought was the last thing she sought, And the doctors will say she is dead. Chorus) She loved him a little too much, her eyes are closed and they're both sewn shut, And the doctors all said it was corona instead, of the bullet she placed in her head!

It is really wild for me right now knowing that, I am actually currently living in the very area where he started his career after getting out of the army. I can only imagine what must have been going through his mind back during all of the political unrest/protests of the 60's....kind of just like now....and how he was writing his music to bring everyone together. Enjoy, "Peace Be Found"....and may music heal all of our souls!!!!

Greetings to all of my family and friends throughout the world. The way I have always dealt with getting through any situation in my life, good or bad; is with music. It comes from a higher power from up above, and is the supreme healer that always seems to make us feel better. I hope this song will help to lift you to a more positive place, and give you comfort in knowing we are all in this together. Remember that, no matter how "physically" seperated we may be right now; we can always be stronger together "spiritually" than we have ever been!!!!

I sincerely hope the people who are staying at home now with their families....spend all of the time they can enjoying each other as much as possible, for that is what is truly important in this world. Cheers to all of you who listen and, stay safe out there!!!!

Hello, everyone. It's been quite a year already all around the world. This is a song that sums up my feelings on war, politics, viruses, greed, Brother against Brother, etc....all in one shot. Every bit of it is a "Lost Cause". Don't miss out on these lyrics, which I have included for you!!!! "Lost Cause" lyrics (copyrighted, published 2020 Andy Garrett) verse) The day is hot, the night is long, the wind blows cold on him alone, a cry rises from the fireside, try and take my life tonight. bridge) Soldier you have been, then mass destruction your eyes have seen, events they happen as they may, did it really have to be this way? chorus) Fill your pockets, increase your wealth, put your Brother, on a shelf, destroy all those, who oppose your laws, persuing a noble dream, it's a lost cause! verse) You've seen the fire burn the skies, politicians' crazy lies, hindsight now it's a bit too late, they should have learned to communicate. bridge/chorus/guitar lead ending verse) Still searching for the answer, is it really there?

Greetings, my friends....I hope you are all well this week. This is a song I was working on/re-recording the day that I found out a good friend of mine (Kevin Law) had passed away up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. So, because of the undying devotion to music in his own life....I wanted to make sure that his face would always be somewhere out in the digital realm of the music industry (that's his mug on the cover). Here is my tribute to him...."Lawdog". Crank it to 11....and always live your life like there is no tomorrow!!!!

What better way to start out the new year, than with a song based on time called "Time is All". Basically, I have come to the conclusion that "time" is really the only thing of true value we are given in this life we have. Some will argue and say it is money, but never has money been able to buy more time for anyone when life gets short for them. It really boils down to what you accomplish within the time you have, while you have it. Enjoy this one, and the many more that will continue to follow....cheers!!!!

Hi, everyone. Here is a brand new radio edit of the song "I Know the Price", as requested by some Metal/Rock radio stations throughout the world. I have drastically improved the overall sound....with better drums, and guitars played through 5150 tube amps. Enjoy, and please crank it up for the entire world to hear (I also included the lyrics for your reading pleasure)!!!! "I Know the Price" lyrics (copyrighted, published 2019 Andy Garrett) Verse 1) Raising the prices up, every time we get a raise, Health care, forced to have, even though it doesn't pay, Working overtime, just enough to pay the bills, Programmed by the ads, do I need more pills? Chorus) I know the price, I feel your pain. Verse 2) Struggling to have a life, families all alone, Left to worship CGI, raised by a phone, Desperation leads to doom, money hungry pain, Holding down the "have nots", the "haves" get to reign! (Chorus & Lead Guitars & Chorus)

Here is one more song that has been re-recorded in Classic Country style to be pitched a little better in Nashville....a tune I wrote called "The Damage Done". I think it really sums up all of the things I've wanted to say for many years to family, friends, and aquaintances in general....in regards to my many mistakes I made as a dumb kid (those of you who knew me in the 70's/80's, know what I'm talking about). Most of us do grow up later on and think back to those times....but, can't really change the past; only learn from it. I think we can all relate in some way to this song; and I hope it gives you some of the healing it gave to me by sharing it with the world. Thanks to all of you who support Indie Music, and really listen!!!!

Hello again, my friends. Many times in life, I have been asked by people about my views on death/dying....and how I personally feel about it. Well; having already seen many of my family, friends, and former/present work buddies pass on....I have come to the conclusion that it is really just part of life, and that we should focus more on the life we still have every day as we are Blessed enough to get out of bed. Here is a song I wrote that goes along with that message....and, this is the true way it was supposed to sound originally; Traditional Country. So, enjoy this song....and the life you have before you as you read this, for you are truly Blessed!!!!

Greetings, all. Here is the brand new "Golden Edition" of the song I wrote for my Wife called "The Way You Wanted Me". Once again....some friends of mine in Nashville helped out on this version, and really made it sound Traditional Country. This is for my beautiful Wife, Pat!!!! (I included the lyrics below). "The Way You Wanted Me" (copyrighted/published 2019 Andy Garrett) Verse 1) It was many years ago, but I remember; Being sorry for the things, I said and did to you; You made me go away, do you remember; But I guess that's what you wanted me to do. Bridge) I have never been the same, since you made me go away; Time and time again I prayed, I just wish I could have stayed. Chorus) The way you wanted me, the way I wanted you to be; The way you wanted me, just could never be the same; The same. Verse 2) I was sitting by the phone in late December; Feeling down and so alone, just wanting to hear from you; I didn't even know what I would tell you; And I didn't even really think you'd care. Bridge & Chorus Lead Guitar Break Bridge & Chorus 2 times

Greetings! Here is a brand new "Classic Country-radio edit" version of a very special song that is dedicated to our troops and their families called "Prayer From Me to You"....and I also included the lyrics (My Wife, Pat, and I both sing on this one). Years ago, back when I first started playing the guitar; my Dad would tell me about how Country music had a certain sound to it. I feel that, with a little help from some friends of mine in Nashville....we have finally acheived getting that sound on this one. So, for all of you who enjoy that Traditional kind of music....enjoy, and thanks so much for listening!!!! "Prayer From Me to You" (lyrics) c2019 Andy Garrett (Verse 1) You call me on the telephone to tell me you are leaving to go far away, Don't know when you're coming back, guess that I will take it day by day. (Bridge 1) You tell me not to worry about it, but you know I will, Some days there's just nothing more to do. (Chorus) So here's a prayer from me to you (2x's) (Verse 2) Tried to get by every day, hoping you're okay and that there's nothing wrong, Knowing that I'm by your side, even if it's only in your mind. (Bridge 2) You tell me not to think about it, but you know I will, Some days there's just nothing else to do. (Chorus) So here's a prayer from me to you (2x's) (Repeat Bridge 1 and Chorus 2x's)

Greetings to everyone worldwide....I hope you're having a great week. I had a request for a better radio edit of a song I released earlier this year called "Politician"....so, here it is; and the sound is atleast 10 times better....crank it up as loud as you can stand it. (I also included the lyrics again down below for whoever wants to read along)!!!! "Politician" lyrics (copyrighted, published 2019 Andy Garrett) Verse 1) Tell me what is wrong, tell me what is right, Tell me on the news, tell me all the lies, Take all my money, take all my pride, Voting for you is a waste of my time, Lining your pockets, filling your banks, Starting your wars, blame all the gangs, Its a diversion to keep us insane, Democrats, Republicans, its all the same! Chorus) Politician (4x's) Verse 2) Tell me how to live, tell me what to do, Tell me when to sleep, tell me when to move, Making all the pills to shove in my face, Keeping us divided, blaming it on race, We're all controlled, stuck on our phones, Missing the deals done right under our nose, There is no shame for the big one percent, They own the world, we pay the rent! Chorus) Politician (4x's) "Lead Guitar Breaks" Verse 3) Twisting religion, twisting our sight, Teaching our children, no wrong or right, Running the streets all hours of the night, Why do we listen, it's time to fight! Chorus) Politician (4x's)

Here is a video of my brand new Rocking tune "Racer G". The footage shows a rare brief glipse into the world of guitar string manufacturing. This is from a place I used to work for many years (late 80's to late 90's) in Michigan called "American Winding", and not too many people ever see this side of where and how the strings are made. I used to be their Head of Quality Control/String Tester, and still miss it every day. The people there were some of my best friends from Kalamazoo (one of those friends, Don Cool, is the one who originally got me the job there). Enjoy this song....many more to come!!!!

It was in Orlando, Florida and we were raising money for famous guitarist Steve Vai's "Make a Noise Foundation".
