Boring lists, but I thought they should appear somewhere.
Most of the older songs were written during my New Christy Minstrel years. I'm proud of every one, and I've started writing again after a long 'vacation' (don't ask). If you write songs, don't stop. It helps to peel the layers of the onion back and it's a joy that is hard to equal.
This list will be updated sooner or later...it's not a priority item (3/18/2014)
