Words of a woman capo 7th fret INTRO: G F C The words of a woman won't go away Like a thumbprint on a heart of clay They are knives in your back, they can dance on her tongue They can run through your mind, make you come undone The words of a woman can break your heart Without lifting a finger, can tear you apart She can give you a burden, with her heavy sigh Or make you uneasy with that look in her eye The words of a woman can shine like the sun Make a man feel like he's Gods favorite son They give hope to the hopeless, sight to the blind They can melt a hard heart and ease your troubled mind The words of a women, hold the power to destroy But are never more beautiful when theyre bringing me joy The words of a women, hold the power to destroy But are never more beautiful when theyre bringing me joy The words of a woman could buy back your past Make the chains fall away, make you free at last The words of a woman may come too late Leave you stranded without keys at heavens gate I'd tattoo them on my heart if I only could They are meant to be loved, not understood The words of a woman are her silver and gold When I steal them away my heart grows cold The words of a woman are just not fair Good thing for me I don't even care The words of a woman make my blood run hot But her language of love cannot be bought

about

Just before I passed by the Travelers Hotel sign here in downtown San Antonio... I was telling myself that I don't want to write and record songs anymore. It just seemed silly. I have so many records for you to pick and choose from... so why do you need one more?

Then, I saw the sign: Travelers Hotel.

By the time I got to the car, I had all these characters in my head... these sounds and ideas of sounds. I knew I had to start recording and writing. Oh well.... I guess giving up making music is NOT in the cards for me.

I realized that even though I love you guys.... my fans, friends, supporters, encouragers.... I wasn't writing this music for you. I was writing it for me! It saves my own life, my sanity, my heartbreak and my own internal struggle in this life.

But the rewarding part of it all is the fact that you guys are right with me and for that - I am so grateful!

This album is officially 12 songs - ending with Forgiveness
But for the digital version I've included 3 Bonus Tracks for you as well!
The original 12 songs clock in at 1 hour and 1 minute.... so you are definitely getting the grand tour of Travelers Hotel.

All the lyrics and guitar chords are included here as well.
Download away.
Crank up the car stereo.
Slip on your headphones....
