1. Slide show of my daughters set to the background music of a song I wrote for them. The words pretty much explain the songs concept. Hope you enjoy! Lyrics posted below. For best sound quality use headphones or external speakers.

    Where Your Father Went

    Wish I’d seen you then, like I see you now,
    Oh you don’t know how, much you make
    me proud
    When I was not there, and when I was,
    I was so unaware, of the way you cared
    You could see right through me,
    When I would not see anything at all,
    Tried to get through to me,
    When I could not do anything but fall,
    Oh, but you always held my hand
    Oh, even when you could not understand,
    Where your father went

    All your tears that fell, all your fears that swelled,
    From my self made hell, that you could not help
    Lying wake in bed, all those thoughts in head,
    What you might have said, if I might be dead
    How could I be so jaded,
    To three lives that God created for,
    Me to be pervaded, in everything,
    That you have waited for
    Oh, but you always held my hand,
    Oh, even when you could not understand,
    Where your father went

    Yet you comprehend the change in me,
    Believe it’s not pretend this time
    After all the things your eyes have seen
    Your eyes can see the truth in mine
    And it’s so divine

    So we sail through life, hoping we’ll forget,
    All the things of past, till they’re gone at last
    Floating on our faith, through the sea of fate,
    Savoring each crest, of the waves we’ve left
    And I hope that when my ride ends,
    Yours will continue on
    And that you’ll rest assured, our savior,
    Has come to take me home
    Oh, and I know you’ll hold my hand,
    Oh, and I know you’ll understand,
    Where your father went

  2. This is silly little song I wrote with a serious subject overtone. Always went over pretty big @ JAVA JUNKIES COFFEE BAR when I performed there while living in Wilmington, NC. Those of us in recovery, and I think we all are from something, should relate well to this one. ..Hope you enjoy! God is so awesome!! ..... Lyrics below

    SICK PUPPY

    I'm not perfect, I just work it,
    I know what's lurking, if I don't stay strong
    It's no fable, I'm not stable, but
    The Lords got a table, to feed me from
    Yeah all I have to do, is give my troubles to him, cause I know on my own, this hounds gonna howl again

    I'm just a, Sick Puppy with a good veterinarian,
    A dumb doggie, with a smart trainer, cause
    My makers got the cure that I'm bettin' on,
    This Sick puppy with a good veterinarian

    Well I'm no preacher, I'm just a creature,
    I need me a teacher, who can show me how
    Or I'll start huntin', chasing after something,
    Ending up with nothin', bout to wear me out
    And I don't want to end up on that chain again,
    Runnin' 'round and 'round, I can't take that pain again

    Well I'm not perfect, I just work it,
    I'm just a creature, who needs me a teacher,
    Or I'll start huntin', chasin' after something,
    Ending up with nothing, bout to wear me out,
    Yeah all I have to do is give my troubles to Him,
    Cause I don't want to wind up, on that chain again

Having been raised in a very musical family and surroundings it seems the songwriting bug was the one by which I was most bitten. My mother was a talented lyricist, just one of her many including sketching, interior decoration, and being a wonderful mother first and foremost. My father, despite his many struggles, was a talented singer and guitarist and my older brother as well IS; both being much more business minded and realistic than myself. Creativity, depression, dependence and living life as on an emotional roller-coaster has brought me many struggles of my own, mostly self-inflicted, but from the time I first accepted Jesus Christ as my savior at age 11, and was baptized, He has allowed me to explore doing things totally my way which nearly always brought and brings me nothing but misery. By grace He has brought me through these catastrophes and along the years blessed me with the lyrics and music to express what they were like not just from my perspective but from what I have felt may be the perspective of those most affected by my actions and words.
God has blessed me with three perfectly precious daughters from a twenty-three year marriage that ended only because of my in-ability and unwillingness to bend to His will; yet He has continued loving me and guiding me in the ways of His will as long as I ask for his direction and allow His grace to be just what it is; totally sufficient for whatever life on earth has to throw at me.
Most of the songs I'm posting now were written several to many years ago. In the last two to three years I have faced poverty, homelessness and a deepening depression which in part has come from my inability to face the situation that I alone am responsible for; yet amazingly though undeserved, my God has pulled me out of the miry mess and I am now in my own home. I have a great relationship with my daughters, my ex-wife, my brother and many other members of my family, as well as supportive close friends and professionals. God is a God of not just second, but many chances and I hope to continue to use what humble talent He has given me to help bring glory to His name and to share the blessings He so willingly bestows upon all who seek it.

Peace, Jerry L. Joyner
