This "Country Tune" was composed many years ago primarily for my own amusement, although the lyrics weren't written until I prepared these songs for publication in 2001. It is music of the popular sort I occasionally heard on the radio when I was a young man, with singable melodies and guitar-like accompaniments. It would be a shame if anyone took them too seriously, but they are not without a certain charm which I hope recommends them to both singers and audiences in search of new, lighter fare.

"There's Somebody Lookin' at Me" is a romantic ghost story more likely to elicit smiles than shrieks. By the end, one is left wondering if the visionary subject described in my lyric is fully in possession of his or her wits, but perhaps the "evidence" of a rose is all that's really required in such cases.

There's Somebody Lookin' at Me
After I go to bed at night the stars all start to come out.
In the shadows a pair of spooky bright eyes starts flick'rin' about.
There's somebody lookin' at me, and I don't like how I feel,
But since there's no one else who can see her/him, I'm sure (s)he can't be real.

When I find myself home alone and friends are all far away,
I will pick up the telephone and pretend (s)he hears what I say.

There's somebody lookin' at me, and I'm not sure how I feel,
But since there's no one else who can see her/him, I'm not sure that (s)he's real.

One fine mornin' I woke just as the sun was startin' to rise.
There beside me a red rose lay on my pillow—what a surprise!

There's somebody lookin' at me, but now I know how I feel,
And 'though there's no one else who can see her/him, (s)he just has to be real,
Oh, (s)he just has to be real!

The sound sample is an electronic preview with the voice part represented by a clarinet.
