about

This is crazy. There is a long story about a woman who was after me (I was innocent - I didn't know). She did some crazy things to lure me, but one morning I woke up and the word on my mind was 'gold digger'. So the song became about those entities in life that want to steal away what isn't theirs. It could be natural, it could be spiritual.

lyrics

I woke up this morning
It caught me by surprise
I know what you want now
You can’t have though, it’s mine

I might choose to give it
I might keep it to myself
You’ll get it ‘cause I gave it
You can’t take it though, it’s mine

You’re slick you’re skilled
You’re heartless, cruel
You’re methods are sublime
Saw the picture just today
You can’t have it though it’s mine

One’s like you they come and go
But you’re the best one I’ve seen yet
There’s better ones I’ve heard about
Who’ll pull out all the stops

You’re slick you’re skilled
You’re heartless, cruel
You’re methods are sublime
Saw the picture just today
You can’t have it though it’s mine

You think you’re getting what you want
But now your secret’s known
I understand your game my friend
I understand your moves

You’re slick you’re skilled
You’re heartless, cruel
You’re methods are sublime
Saw the picture just today
You can’t have it though it’s mine

You’re slick you’re skilled
You’re heartless, cruel
You’re methods are sublime
Saw the picture just today
You can’t have it though it’s mine

about

Rand Swift And The Wayward Band Seattle, Washington

I've been a songwriter forever writing a number of choruses over the years. But then things changed and I found myself out of that world. In retrospect, by some gracious act of love for me.

I continued over the years to write, mostly singing and playing for small crowds - me, the cat, the dog.

It was my middle son, also a songwriter and recording artist, deciding these must be produced. Thanks.
