About Me

Hi Everyone! I am from La Vergne, TN (about 20 minutes from downtown Nashville). I write songs in just about any style of music. I write both words and music. Most of my songs are written on guitar and the rest on piano. I am a member of NSAI. I have attended 2 songwriting creativity workshops given by Beth Nielsen Chapman and also Barbara Cloyd’s “Play for Publishers” Workshop. I wrote the title song, "The Love That Lasts Forever", for an independent film of the same name which was filmed in Paris. I have received Honorable Mentions in The Billboard Song Contest, The American Song Festival, and The Music City Song Festival. I have also auditioned several songs at the Bluebird Cafe which is a great experience as you hear around 60 other songwriters play…and yes, there are a lot of great songs out there waiting to be heard.

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on JoeMinor's lyric:

"Ok...trying this again!!! sometimes when I submit there's nothing there!! 🤪😕😩

I love "Tug of war"...but "our hearts are in" is tough to sing in front of that. what else can you put with tug of war that's fresh and fits easily?
the last 2 lines are really close...but "heart" has already had a big spot at the end of the first 2 verses ...what's new we can say here...great last line! "

My Lyrics

Written for:

  • Marti Dodson
  • Beth Nielsen Chapman
So I'll go on living/'cause there's no reliving.

No comments

Every heartbeat reminds me/of your love that's inside me/and I'll cherish each day/and the words we both say/that will make our time stand still.
Cause time is forever/But life is short.
And say all the words(things) I need to confess.
And say all the words/things I need to confess.

No comments

I'll never forget you/or the song we danced to/And when I hear it play/it brings back those days/we'd turn the music up loud.
She was like a shooting star/not long in the sky, but traveling far.
After all we've said/I wake up in the morning/With my aching head/Cause you can't(won't) decide/So I hope instead/That time will be on my(our)side/Cause I'm never gonna change you mind
Resubmission for outro: If I'm never gonna change your mind, / Then I'll give your heart a little more time.
We go to bed/Wake up in the morning/After all we said/Can we leave it behind?/A hope instead/ We can find a compromise/Cause I’m never gonna change your mind OR If I’m ever gonna change your mind
There's another part/That can see the light/Reflecting so far/on The notion that I might…

No comments

Like a little star/Shining through the night/A glimmer so far/The notion that I might…

No comments

So I turn my back/ I never will surrender/ You ignore the facts/When our words collide/ Like a heart attack/ We're living on borrowed time/And I'm never gonna change your mind

No comments

We watch the news/ And try to talk it over/ But you still refuse/ To see other sides/ I'm right, you're wrong/ Or do we leave it all behind/ Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
Who built these walls and put them all around us?/Well, I'm feeling lost, but hoping to find./Is it right or left or is it time to compromise?/'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind.

Everybody's in a tug-o-war
(Well), Our words are in a tug of war/Neither one of us will ever win/So I'm waiting with an open door/And I'm always gonna let you in (Revision per Beth's comments)
Who built these walls and put them all around us?/Well, I'm feeling lost, but hoping to find./Is it right or left or is it time to compromise?/'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind.
Well, I'm never gonna change your mind./So we'll have to find some common ground./Can we find a way to compromise?/'Cause we're never gonna change this town.
If I'm never gonna change your mind, / Then I'll give your heart alittle more time.
