about

The 4th solo release from renowned Austin, TX guitarist and songwriter David Grissom. The CD includes eight new studio tracks and four extended live tracks, with blistering covers of the Allman Brother's “Jessica" and ZZ Top's "Nasty Dogs And Funky Kings". The rest are all original tunes by Grissom, including two songs written with Chris Stapleton (The Steeldrivers), and another with Austin singer songwriter Kacy Crowley. The entire CD showcases the deep interplay and chemistry developed over the last two years with Grissom’s badass Austin band members. After touring and recording with artists such as Joe Ely, John Mellencamp, Storyville, Buddy Guy, and The Allman Brothers, “How It Feels To Fly” finds David confidently settling into the role of bandleader and solo artist.

Track Name: Bringin" Sunday Mornin" To Saturday Night
BRINGIN’ SUNDAY MORNIN’ TO SATURDAY NIGHT
David Grissom

LIGHTNIN’ HOPKINS LIGHTIN’ UP THE THIRD WARD
TELL A DEEP STORY WITH A LOWDOWN CHORD
PREACHIN’ THE GOSPEL, PLAYIN’ BY HIS OWN SET OF RULES
LIGHTNIN’ CHANGE WHEN LIGHTNIN’ WANNA CHANGE
SENT BILLY G TO THAT HOME ON THE RANGE
PASSIN’ IT DOWN THAT WIDE HIGHWAY OF BLUES

(CHORUS)
THEY WERE BRINGIN’ SUNDAY MORNIN’ TO SATURDAY NIGHT
SUNDAY MORNIN’ TO SATURDAY NIGHT
TESTIFYIN’, LETTIN’ THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
FEELIN’ RIGHTEOUS AIN’T NO SIN
MIGHT AS WELL LET SUNDAY MORNIN’ BEGIN

SARAH VAUGHAN AND JOHN COLTRANE
REDEFINING MY FAVORITE THINGS
SEARCHIN’ FOR TRUTH IN SHEETS OF SOUND
RALPH STANLEY AND B.B. KING
SKYDOG SLIDIN’ ACROSS SIX STRINGS
A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN DOWN HERE ON THE GROUND

(CHORUS)
THEY WERE BRINGIN’ SUNDAY MORNIN’ TO SATURDAY NIGHT
SUNDAY MORNIN’ TO SATURDAY NIGHT
TESTIFYIN’, LETTIN’ THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
FEELIN’ RIGHTEOUS AIN’T NO SIN
MIGHT AS WELL LET SUNDAY MORNIN’ BEGIN

UNIVERSAL CHURCH OF MUSIC AND LIGHT
SWEET REDEMPTION ON SATURDAY NIGHT
MESSAGE OF LOVE KEEPS ON LIFTIN’ ME HIGHER….….HIGHER!
Track Name: How It Feels To Fly
HOW IT FEELS TO FLY
David Grissom

I’VE RIDDEN 10,000 WAVES IN SEARCH OF THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
EARTHBOUND LIKE A BIRD IN A CAGE, DREAMING OF FLIGHTS OF FREEDOM
IN THE DARKNESS BEFORE THE DAWN
I FOUND LOVE COULD LEAD ME ON

(CHORUS)
BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON
WHERE THE OCEAN MEETS THE SKY
A JET TRAIL KEEPS ON CLIMBING
AND I’VE NEVER FELT THIS HIGH
I’VE TASTED HEAVEN, I’VE GONE TO HELL
I’VE HEARD STORIES ONLY TIME CAN TELL
I WOULDN’T CHANGE ONE MEMORY OR BREAK THE FLOW
‘CAUSE NOW I KNOW, HOW IT FEELS TO FLY

I KNOW THAT THE SUN HIGH ABOVE WAS THERE YESTERDAY
BUT THIS MORNING IT DID NOT SEEM QUITE SO FAR AWAY
I FELT SOME THING PURE AND NEW
WOKE UP IN A ROOM WITH A DIFFERENT VIEW

CHORUS

IN A WORLD OF SILVER AND GOLD
NOTHING COMPARES TO A HAND TO HOLD
AND NOW I KNOW…
HOW IT FEELS TO FLY

SOLO

CHORUS
Track Name: Georgia Girl
GEORGIA GIRL
David Grissom/Chris Stapleton

TURN OUT THE LIGHTS, UNPLUG THE PHONE
LORD HAVE MERCY WE’RE ALL ALONE
I KNEW I COULD NEVER STAY AWAY
I’M SO GLAD THAT YOU FEEL THE SAME
YOU, HAD ME RIGHT THERE FROM THE START
WHEN YOU, WRAPPED YOUR SMILE AROUND MY HEART

(CHORUS)
GEORGIA GIRL
THE WAY OUR SHADOWS DANCE IN THE MOONLIGHT
DON’T YOU KNOW YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE
NOTHING IN THIS WORLD
LOVE ME JUST A LITTLE, LITTLE GEORGIA GIRL
LOVE ME JUST A LITTLE, LITTLE GEORGIA GIRL

NEVER KNEW A MAN COULD FEEL LIKE THIS
COME ON WONT YA GIVE ME JUST A LITTLE KISS
I AIN’T GONNA TELL IF YOU STEAL ONE MORE
NO I DON’T MIND IF YOU SHUT THAT DOOR
THE WAY YOU MOVE, ALWAYS FEELS SO RIGHT
WON’T YOU, BE ALL MINE TONIGHT

REPEAT CHORUS

THE WAY YOU MOVE, ALWAYS FEELS SO RIGHT
WON’T YOU, BE ALL MINE TONIGHT

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Never Came Easy To Me
NEVER CAME EASY TO ME
David Grissom

NOTHIN’ WORTH HAVIN’ EVER CAME EASY TO ME
THE SWEETEST VICTORIES CAME WITHIN AN INCH OF DEFEAT
DONE A LITTLE TIME DOWN ON MY KNEES
RUNNIN’ ON WILL AND ELBOW GREASE
NOTHIN’ WORTH HAVIN’ EVER CAME EASY TO ME

FOR EVERY OUNCE OF PLEASURE I WEIGHED A HALF A POUND OF PAIN
NEVER GOT TO THE SUGAR WITHOUT CUTTIN’ DOWN THE CANE
I’VE HELD TIGHT THROUGH HURRICANES
JUST A WAITIN’ ON A GENTLE RAIN
FOR EVERY OUNCE OF PLEASURE I WEIGHED A HALF A POUND OF PAIN

SOLO

FAITH CARRIED ME THROUGH A THOUSAND NIGHTS OF FEAR
DOWN THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD THAT LED ME HERE
WHEN THE STARS WOULD NOT APPEAR
I HEARD A SWEET VOICE WHISPER IN MY EAR
FAITH CARRIED ME THROUGH A THOUSAND NIGHTS OF FEAR

TO GET TO THE MARROW YOU GOTTA CUT CLOSE TO THE BONE
MAKE A CHOICE ABOUT HOW MUCH PAIN YOU’RE WILLING TO HOLD
IF YOU WANNA FIND THAT LIMITLESS LODE
YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO MINE THE DEPTHS OF YOUR SOUL
TO GET TO THE MARROW YOU GOTTA CUT CLOSE TO THE BONE

NOTHIN’ WORTH HAVIN’ EVER CAME EASY TO ME
THE SWEETEST VICTORIES CAME WITHIN AN INCH OF DEFEAT
MONEY AND FAME ARE FINE INDEED
HAD TO DO MY TIME DOWN ON MY KNEES
NOTHIN’ WORTH HAVIN’ EVER CAME EASY TO ME
Track Name: Overnight
OVERNIGHT
David Grissom/Kacy Crowley

THERE’S A COLD FROST ON THE WINDOW
OF THE ROOM WHERE YOU’RE STILL ASLEEP
AND I’M IN THE KITCHEN WITH A COLD CUP OF COFFEE
WONDERIN’ ABOUT YOU AND ME

WAKE UP, PLEASE TAKE MY HAND
THE TIME IS GOING TOO FAST
THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING SAD ABOUT LOVE
WHEN ITS SPARKLING IN YOUR PAST

(CHORUS)
OVERNIGHT, EVERYTHING CHANGES
OVERNIGHT, WE BECOME STRANGERS
OVERNIGHT, YOU AND I FORGET EACH OTHER
I NEED A LITTLE MORE TIME

I’LL KEEP SAYING YOUR NAME
MANY TEARS FROM NOW
I’LL FLIP THROUGH THE PAGES OF A TELEPHONE BOOK
WHENEVER I’M IN A NEW TOWN

(REPEAT CHORUS)

INSTRUMENTAL

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Track Name: Gift Of Desperation
GIFT OF DESPERATION

I’D BACK AWAY FROM ANYTHING I DIDN’T WANT TO FEEL
SPENT HALF OF A LIFETIME SPINNING MY WHEELS
‘TIL THE PAST CAUGHT UP WITH ME
WRAPPED ME IN IT’S ICY CHILL
I RAN AWAY ‘TILL I HAD TO FACE
ALL THE PAIN I COULDN’T KILL

(CHORUS)
COLD WIND BLOW, LOSIN’ ALL SENSATION
LETTING GO OF ANY EXPECTATIONS
LEARNING HOW TO LIVE
FEEL YOUR HEART BEGIN TO SHIFT
GRATEFUL FOR THE GIFT OF DESPERATION

I GOT REAL GOOD AT FLYIN’ ON THE WINGS OF EXCESS
HAD NIGHTS WHEN I LIED ON THE SOFT BED OF SUCCESS
COMES A TIME, YOU CROSS A LINE
WHEN YOU KNOW THE GAME IS UP
YOU CAN SWIM AGAINST, THE RISIN’ TIDE
OR LET THE OCEANS FILL YOUR CUP

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
THE BEST OF LUCK WILL ALWAYS TURN
WOODEN BRIDGES WILL ALWAYS BURN
THE HARDEST TIMES WE FIND OURSELVES EMBRACING
ARE THE GIFTS OF DESPERATION
Track Name: Satisfied
SATISFIED
CHRIS STAPLETON/DAVID GRISSOM

LIFE IS A WINDING ROAD
BENDS AND BRIDGES TWISTS AND TURNS
TIME IS A MATCH IN YOUR FINGERTIPS
STRIKE IT UP AND WATCH IT BURN
ONCE WE FOUND OUR SHELTER
IN THE ARMS OF THE MOONLIGHT GLOW
TOO MANY WALKS ON FENCES
TOO MANY I DON’T KNOWS

(CHORUS)
AND I…. WISH YOU PEACE
ON THE WINGS OF LOVE
IN ANYTHING THAT YOU TRY
I HOPE YOU FIND THE ANSWERS
TO THE QUESTIONS IN YOUR HEART
MAY YOU BE SATISFIED

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE CRYIN’
SOMETIMES I WANNA LAUGH
HANGIN’ ON TO YOUR MEMORY
LIKE AN OLD FADED PHOTOGRAPH
SO MANY THINGS I’D TELL YOU
IF YOU WERE STILL AROUND
I’M SORRY THAT I HURT YOU
SORRY THAT I PUT YOU DOWN

(REPEAT CHORUS)
