My Country Fair You get the sleeping bag, I’ll get the tent You get the flowers, they’ve got the power I think we’re ready, got all that we need Don’t need much to wear at my Country Fair Oh------ How do you feel tonight? The sun is shinin’ but rain’s on the way Everyone say “We want the rain to go away.” You want your coffee from sweet Liberty I want ice tea and Mickey’s Gumbo for me Oh------ How do you feel tonight? Everyone’s dancing, dancing in the rain You were there too, along with quite a few Music was playin’ we’re all spinning around Kinda like now, you all know how, c’mon Oh------ How do you feel tonight? Everything’s hazy, sun in my eyes Got to lie down all covered in sound But it picked me up and tossed me around Hands in the air at my Country Fair Oh------ How do you feel tonight? When it’s all over I don’t want it to end I want to pretend it won’t ever end So I’m still singin’, still dancin’, still laughin’ yea Here we are now, all together now Oh------ How do you feel tonight? Oh------ How do you feel tonight? Shona lyric at end: “Father comforter”

I See You 06:29
I know how to make the sun shine I can do it anytime I see, I see, I see you I can show you how to feel right Hold still, don’t move, look up, close your eyes. I see, I see, I see you With all of the smoke and the fire With endlessly twisting wire Through chill wind and biting rain With nothing to numb the pain I’ll go on, put on my dancing shoes I’ll go on, breathe deep and let it loose I’ll go on, go on loving you I’ll go on, go on loving you, loving you… So much bad news, so what else is new? This morning, this evening, and there’s always things to do. I see, I see, I see you, I see all of you…..

Riding in the Buick on Highway 36 Going over 40, taking a big risk It runs along the river, rising with the storm Whitecaps a-dancing, brown water warns. Muddy water rising, trouble coming through. Hard to see clearly through the muddy brew. I think I know bullshit, I can see it left or right But not so good in this brown flood, Muddy water rising tonight. Playing out in Deadwood, real Hippies all around dancing their hearts out, dance and sing along. They live on the river, they’ve seen mud before Sinks to the bottom – that’s what mud is for. Muddy water rising, trouble coming through. Hard to see the truth now, through the muddy brew. I think I know bullshit, I can see it left or right But not so good in this brown flood, Muddy water rising tonight. Count on you, what to do You can go insane, or you can use your brain, Maybe you can stop the rain… Riding in the Buick on Highway 36, Going over 40, taking a big risk – Zane: SLOW DOWN! He lives on the river, he’s seen curves before Hands on the wheel, pedal on the floor. Muddy water rising, trouble coming through. Hard to see the truth now, through that muddy brew. Folks of good intention shining out their light Hard for us to see them in this Muddy water rising tonight. Muddy water rising, trouble coming through. Hard to see the truth now, through the muddy brew. I think I know bullshit, I think you do, too But not so good in this brown flood, Muddy water rising, muddy water rising, muddy water rising tonight.

I can see it in your eyes I can feel it on your fingertips I can hear it in your laughter, Baby I can taste it on your tender lips. All my senses reeling What a wonderful feeling When I hold you Baby I feel all the love in the world Solve the mystery, solve the crime Somebody stole this heart of mine To tell you the truth, I think it’s you, and I don’t really mind I never felt so fine All my senses reeling What a wonderful feeling When I hold you Baby I feel all the love in the world all the love in the world all the love in the world all the love … I’m an oracle, a fortune teller I can see way into the future I see a vision of your smiling face and your soft round shoulders all covered lace in the foreground of the patterns on the ceiling of your room All my senses reeling What a wonderful feeling When I hold you Baby I feel all the love in the world all the love in the world all the love in the world all the love ….… in the world all the love..

Candy! 03:52
Your momma on your left Your daddy on your right Holding your hands Got ‘em held tight You’re walking down the aisle In the grocery store You know the one I mean The one your living for Candy everywhere Shining like the sun reds and blue and green Gotta get yourself some “Hey mommy”, you could say real nice With your smile so sweet and your eyes so bright. Can I have some candy, You know I want some candy, Can I please have some candy Please, oh please, oh please, oh please Wa wa…………….. Give them your sad eyes Stick out your lower lip Reach out for the candy Let a wet tear slip They said yes They said OK You can get yourself some candy You can have it right away “Thanks Mommy” you should say it twice. “You’re so sweet and my Daddy’s so nice.” Thank you for the candy, I ate up all the candy, Can I have some more candy Please, oh please, oh please, oh please Wa wa…………….. Instrumental interlude Can I have some candy, You know I want some candy, Can I please have some candy Please, oh please, oh please, oh please Wa wa…………….. Can I have some candy, You know I want some candy, Can I please have some candy Please, oh please, oh please, oh please Wa wa……………..

So many days and so many miles We scatter behind us like petals of roses Leaving sweet memories fading as we go And new days come on us and ask us to choose. The future will take us, go flying before us On wings of desire and dreams of our good life As steady as the diesel with the cruise set on 60 And no place for slow pokes who won’t come along And we’re here in the middle of future and past And we can’t hold on Here in the center of past and future is where we always will be Forever be Look at the mountains, red green and yellow And white clouds make blue sky seem bluer than ever And look at your, amber and golden With laugh lines around them like lace on the trees And we’re here in the middle of future and past And we can’t hold on Here in the center of past and future is where we always will be Forever…. Look at the lake there, all rippled and shallow And the talk of the mallard and robin and crow The city awaits us, with the keyboard and the cell phone And all of the people who share in our lives And we’re here in the middle of future and past And we can’t hold on In the fast moving center of past and future is where, where we belong, And we’re here in the middle of future and past And we can’t hold on Here in the center of past and future is where we always will be, you and me Forever be

We’re driving up the road to see the happy day The sun was shining bright here in the USA That’s when we go the news, we’ll never be the same You looked me in the eye, I said this is insane, yes it is. I can’t tell you how to live your life But fire and smoke and death just don’t seem right. We put our shields up, we tried to hunker down We let our anger out, we shed our tears and drown We said our hearts forgive, but forgiveness wasn’t found And so we grabbed a gun and we’re still spinning round. I can’t tell you how to live your life But fire and smoke and death just don’t seem right. Why is it so hard to see the path to set us free We all come from one tree and I am you and you are me And so we argue this and we argue that I think you’re skinny and You think I’m fat Got my dark glasses on, you got that funny hat And so the summers go and they’re still not coming back I can’t tell you how to live your life But fire and smoke and death just don’t seem right.

I’ve been sinking into deep despair I’ve been growing long, grey, Hippie hair So many things I believe are true Are getting lost in the red, white, and blue. I been searching oh, so many years For peace and love between the tears It gets so hard not to just give in And let the darkness win Fill my heart, Fill my heart, I gotta fill my heart Fill my heart with love In myself, on my own Try to get it right, try again, try again… Pain is everywhere it’s not just your own We share it deep in our bones Your brother dies when you shoot your gun There is no place to run. Fill my heart, Fill my heart, I gotta fill my heart Fill my heart with love In myself, on my own Try to get it right, try again, try again… I still sing and play and make my noise I still hope they’ll put away their tough boy toys Crazy Hippie man, doesn’t understand Why don’t we just let in the light. Fill my heart, Fill my heart, I gotta fill my heart Fill my heart with love In myself, on my own Try to get it right, try again, try again… Fill my heart with love………

Rainbow 04:37
Rainbow… Walk out of the world, the world of steel and glass Walk into the blue sky, don’t ever look back Your toes in the crystal brook, clear heart water flows Let the colors shine in your eyes, all the colors in the rainbow, In the rainbow. Rainbow… Summer brings the silver light of popcorn in the pale moonlight Sparking stars and sparking eyes and wind in your hair so light Such a pretty peaceful scene of glowing fires and waking dreams As we all kiss the night and grow all the colors in the rainbow In the rainbow Take your child in your tender arms in the meadow gold and green Let your spirit sing of love in the mountains tall and free The beetle has silver wings, the eagle a crown of gold The Mother covers us with shining light all the colors in the rainbow In the rainbow Mysteries so deep and strange, echoes of patrolman’s planes Mingle with the call we strain to send you to relieve the pain So all of us can be refreshed, one step further from our deaths Walking with the children so we can feel the colors of the Rainbow…. Rainbow….

Sitting by the streamside at Custer Camp Watching bubbles dancing to the sea Holding still for just a moment, while you watch the sky I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my eyes. Children of my children, funny face He can she can, look at me. I will reach into the air, while you learn to fly. I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my eyes. The road is long and longer still The load is heavy and the ringing shrill So take a rest today, but don’t sleep the day away Omming on the top of crystal hill, omming there… Ommmmmmm Cardinal and Blue jay and Taninger the Robin of my childhood is here, too. Linger, you bet I will linger, why don’t you com’on and join me here, ‘cause I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my eyes. Radio and radar are telling me Storms are brewing in the stratosphere Soon I will ride them, but not quite yet ‘cause, I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my eyes. I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping, I’m not sleeping………..

I know you’re all there looking down on me I can feel your love washing over me I can almost feel your hands in mind But I’m leaving now, you know it’s time I was born in 1921 On a summer day in the summer sun My daddy left when I was nine I’m leaving now, you know it’s time I was in a war that we fought and won So I could live my life with my love Joan When our daughter died my Honey saw her time And now my Sweetie, I see mine. Coming home, I’m coming home. Coming home, I’m coming home. Honey, Sweetie, I’m coming home. Coming home. I was awake each and every day Making my mark on the world stage I spent my life working overtime But I’m leaving now, you know it’s time I was there when you were born Early one September morn When the sun came up I thanked the Lord, Gonna see Him now, you know it’s time Eighty years and seven more One last time I’ll close the door When I think of you I’ll send a sign But for now, I know it’s time Coming home, I’m coming home. Coming home, I’m coming home. Honey, Sweetie, I’m coming home. Coming home, I’m coming home. Coming home, I’m coming home. Honey, Sweetie, I’m coming home. Coming home.

Introducing STEEL WOOL:
harmony driven funky world beat folk rock
upbeat and happily serious

All roads led us here. That’s what I felt when Nel and I first met TR Kelley and Randy Hamme. We all came from many years of making music, of speaking out, of making change. And when we plugged in our gear, something special happened. I knew I had found the people who could make these songs vibrate and come alive in the world.

Steel Wool began performing in 2012, hoping to have a good time making music that could connect people to rhythm, sound, and fire. Each of these players brings their experience in world music, country, folk, blues and rock, and melds it with their experience as parents, grandparents and citizens of the planet. That experience fills these songs - songs about love, joy, confusion, struggle, hope - with truth and life. Let them inside. You’ll know… – Tim Mueller

‘Nhemamusasa’ is an ancient Shona mbira song about creating temporary shelter (kutsinhira.org). ‘My Country Fair’s (oregoncountryfair.org) lyrics refer to continuing an 11,000 year old tradition of temporary communities on our Fair land. Combining these two creates our unique blessing for gatherings. – Nel Applegate

A song in a composer's head, in its vibrantly beautiful, elemental and nonexistent perfection, can bring joy and love to its creator.  My deepest calling is to help draw rhythm, tone, feel and harmony out of the composer's head and into the air, so that same joy and love can dance around in your head, too. – Randy Hamme

In 2003 I discovered that my unusual skill-set was called "Asperger Syndrome". In search of info & kindred, I found KindTree (kindtree.org), and Tim & Nel. Music followed. Then we followed the music. Blessed be. – TR Kelley
