R.J. Wynn Poems

My mindset is get there, planning four days ahead
The details and timing, spinning round in my head
One more show, the logistics… those traffic delays
I'll be driving all night and it's getting late
...

He was riding the range, he was mending his fences
Thinking about women and love and bad luck
Dark clouds began rising just like his resentments
It started to rain as a lightning bolt struck
...

Eighteen wheels, young and crazy
Your picture was framed on my dash
Though you hated my truck
My focus was squarely on cash
...

Eighteen wheels... young and crazy
Your picture was framed on my dash
If it seemed like a waste
My focus was squarely on cash
...

Folks liquor stole my life from me
When I was just a child
And no one knew, not even me
That a craving drove me wild

Nuts and bolts make it easy to fix an old jeep up
Put a scope on the rifle or chrome on the pick up
But that honey dew list better get some attention
‘Cause livin isn't livin when her list is ignored
...

We were once total strangers with larcenous hearts
So we grew together to be pulled apart
Still say, never say never, to each other’s sparks
Or touching each other when one needs recharged
...

Baby don't call me hombre
I can't live a lie
To me Hombres stay home
Desperadoes stop by
...

My sweet loving Jesus
You tell me
I don't need a reason
No silver or gold
...

You lie there asleep
In a sweet dream and shine
As I sit here and think
I'm not stoned but I'm high
...

Insatiable Lady play it for me
Bring it to me on your mean frequency
Coast to coast on a channel of our own
You'll always be there no matter where we go
...

The Best Poem Of R.J. Wynn

Moments Of Grace

My mindset is get there, planning four days ahead
The details and timing, spinning round in my head
One more show, the logistics… those traffic delays
I'll be driving all night and it's getting late

So I take in a sunset as I'm headed that way
It's so peaceful it's near to the look on your face
The changes in color do make me wonder
If you take in a sunset as I'm headed that way

It's like I hear your heartbeat, with my ear to your chest
I feel goose bumps and shivers a thousand miles west
Your fingernails baby, the sounds that you make
You can't keep from crying in moments of grace

So I take in a sunset as I'm headed that way
It's so peaceful it's near to the look on your face
The changes make me wonder, yes they do make me wonder
If you take in a sunset as I'm headed that way

Do you hear what I hear? do you think what I think?
Do you want to hear more? Do you need a drink?
My mindset is get there... getting into your bed
The details and timing spinning round in my head

Do you take in a sunset as I'm headed that way?
Is it peaceful and near to the look on your face?
Do the changes in color give you to wonder?
If it's you in the sunset or the sunset inside you

Can't keep me... from crying... in moments of grace
