about

A HELL-yeah country song with maple sugar sweet harmonies and a chorus you can BELT out the car window on an epic road trip, turn it up higher, higher, your hand clutching the air microphone as you bellow out the heartache to red-tail hawks slicing the cloudless sky above abandoned gas stations and husks of rusty telephone booths from another century tilting and sinking like ancient tombstones!

lyrics

Chorus:
Oh Baby, was I just another notch in your belt
You loved me, you left me, did you care how I felt?
I totally adored you, at your altar I knelt
And if you showed up tomorrow my heart would still melt

You whispered words that I so longed to hear
You held me so close, your breath smelt of beer
Your song pierced my heart as it rushed through my ears
You fed on my love and my dreams and my fears

Oh Baby, was I just another notch in your belt
You loved me, you left me, did you care how I felt?
I totally adored you, at your altar I knelt
And if you showed up tomorrow my heart would still melt

When your light shone on me, I was drunk from your gaze
I was your muse at least for a day
I played a bit part on your center stage
But I took what I could while you turned the page

Oh Baby, was I just another notch in your belt
You loved me, you left me, did you care how I felt?
I totally adored you, at your altar I knelt
And if you showed up tomorrow my heart would still melt

The years have gone by on a path far from you
I’ve found my own strength, I’ve followed what’s true
Did you ever love me? I don’t have a clue
But there still is a room in my heart just for you

Oh Baby, was I just another notch in your belt
You loved me, you left me, did you care how I felt?
I totally adored you, at your altar I knelt
And if you showed up tomorrow my heart would still melt

about

Elizabeth Hummel Olympia, Washington

I have been writing songs most of my life. A good bit of recording and performing too. Money comes and goes, but the muse is precious and timeless. I pray that my songs help people through darkness as well as celebrate the light. This music is a village and I am not alone. I am deeply grateful to the many people who have helped me birth these songs in so many ways. You are the Love! ... more
