about

Written, arranged, performed and produced by Greg Everett, De-Plugged was created as a "back to basics" concept using no more than two guitar tracks on any one song. Vocals however, would have no such limitations. The result is a sparse, guitar accompaniment for a lead singer with rich, full harmonies. The songs range from country and blues to folk, light rock and pop.

Thanks to Gerry Plank and Forrest Everett for their insightful critiques over the years which have helped me continuously improve. Thanks to my wonderful grandkids, Langdon Langhoff and Byyce Langhoff for their vocal parts on "The Spider and the Mayfly," and a special thanks to my wife, Bonnie for encouraging me to do what I do.

Verse:
A three day beard and black hat, Shoulder guns and chaps
And a horse that’s built for ridin’ long and hard
With the gold from Durango, On its way to Mexico
And the outlaw, its self appointed guard

But he’s in for the run of his life
With the marshal right behind, and always in sight

Chorus:
He could’a rode on through Durango, He took a wrong turn tonight
He should’a rode on through Durango, He picked the wrong man to fight

Verse
White hat and white horse, And white pearl handled guns o’course
And a reputation spreadin’ far and wide
Well everybody’s heard, He’s the best, that’s the word
He won’t give the outlaw any place to hide

But he’s in for the run of his life
With the outlaw makin’ ground, it’s hard to keep him in sight

Chorus

Verse
Well he’s got his man so many times, But now he’s laid it on the line
It’s been years since anyone has dared
There’s a weight upon his shoulders, He can feel he’s gotten older
His reputation may be more than he can bear

But he’s in for the run of his life
With the outlaw makin’ ground, it’s hard to keep him in sight

Chorus
(He could’a rode on through Durango
He took a wrong turn tonight)

But he’s in for the run of his life
With the marshal right behind, and always in sight

Chorus
(He could’a rode on through Durango
He took a wrong turn tonight
He should’a rode on through Durango
Now someone’s got to pay with his life)
Track Name: Make It Bright
Make It Bright
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse:
Raindrops beatin' on my window pane
Sittin' here realizing that I'll never be the same
Lookin' out and wond'rin' where you've gone
When the sun comes out and lights my face I'll carry on

It's time I moved on out of your guiding light
And made my own way in the night ........
Make it bright, Make it bright

Verse:
Independent means has never been my strongest side
That's why I followed in your guiding light, a place to hide
But now you're gone, it's up to me to make it on my own
To stop the rain, clear up the skies and do it all alone

It's time I moved on out of your guiding light
And made my own way in the night
Make it bright, make it bright

Verse:
I've got it now, i see the way, it's suddenly come to me
Your guiding light was shining for me temporarily
Just enough time it seems, for me to understand
That it was never meant forever, walkin' hand in hand

It's time I moved on out of your guiding light
And made my own way in the night
Make it bright, make it bright
Make it bright, make it bright
Track Name: I Wasn't Lookin'
I Wasn't Lookin'
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse:
I walked into the bar room, and sat on the same old stool
Right next to the window with the view
I was feelin' tired and dirty, I worked a long hard day
I stopped to see some friends and have a few

Verse:
Bored with the conversation, I turned to look around
And saw you at a table, all alone
I was about to turn back around, then you looked at me
And gave me a feelin' I've never known

Chorus:
And I wasn't lookin' for no company tonight
Until I turned around and I saw you
And when your eyes turned to meet me, everything felt right
Funny, you weren't lookin' for nobody too

Verse:
So I walked over to your table, and told you my name
And asked you if you'd like to talk awhile
And you stared right down into your drink while you made up tour mind
And then you offered me a chair and smiled

Verse:
You said you'd come here to relax, and have a drink or two
I knew you weren't out lookin' for a man
But I felt there was a reason for these two lonely hearts
To find this time together so unplanned

Chorus
Track Name: In A Dream
In A Dream
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse:
I closed my eyes and lost my mind
To a year that's passed in a dream of mine
And when I awoke, I might have laughed
With the wind in my sail on a homemade raft
I'm happy now in a dream...
Run away from everything

Verse:
I live my life in a brand new way
My dream goes on from day to day
The people here are nice to me
But no one sees what I can see
I'm happy now in my dream
Run away from everything

Chorus:
With the current that could carry a boy
Bound for New Orleans in a dream
And could last for the rest of my life
But I like being lost... in a dream

Verse:
I finally found my place on earth
It's the only place where I feel my worth
It might sound crazy, being read in a book
But if you see what I see, take a second look
I'm happy now in my dream
Run away from everything

Chorus:

Chorus:
Track Name: Goin' My Way
Goin’ My Way

Verse:
She was walkin’ down the street when I saw her pass by
It was the way she moved her feet that really caught my eye
So I thought I’d take a chance just to see what she’d say
She responded with a smile and now she’s goin’ my way

Chorus:
Goin’ my way
Yeah goin’ my way
Now she’s goin’ my way
She responded with a smile and now she’s goin’ my way

Verse:
As she strolled on down the street in her satin and lace
I said let’s get a bite to eat, let’s go up to my place
And then I thought I’d take a chance just to see what she’d say
She responded with a smile and now she’s goin’ my way

Chorus:

Lead:

Chorus:

Verse:
Now when she’s walkin’ down the street and I see her again
The way she moves her feet will make me wanna go where we been
And I know I’ll take a chance just to see what she’ll say
If she keeps right on a walkin’ or if she’s goin’ my way

Chorus:

She responded with a smile and now she’s goin’ my way
Track Name: I'm Not Though Lovin' You Yet
I’m Not Through Lovin’ You Yet
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse
It’s five o’clock in the mornin’
I haven’t slept all night
I don’t understand how there could be another man
And you’d leave me

Verse
I’ve worked so hard my darlin’
To give you things I thought you would need
But if he gives you the rest, then I wish you the best
Though you deceived me

Chorus
So go on to your new life my darlin’
But don’t think I’ll ever forget
About the life that we had
The good times and bad
‘Cause I’m not through lovin’ you yet
I’m not through lovin’ you yet

Verse
There’ll be a place beside me
I know I won’t regret
I may never see what you needed from me
But I’m not through lovin’ you yet

The Spider & The Mayfly

Chorus:
Doo-dle do do doo-dle doo-dle do do
Doo-dle do do do do
Doo-dle do do doo-dle doo-dle do do
Doo-dle do do do do

Verse:
In the shadow was the spider, his web spread out beyond
In the bushes on the shoreline just above the pond
In the water down below him, a ripple in the light
And a mayfly leaves the water to make her maiden flight

Chorus:

Verse:
And it’s brand new for the mayfly, the air beneath her wings
But the spider thinks of delicacies nature often brings
Then the mayfly stopped so suddenly as if she’d struck a wall
She couldn’t seem to fly away, she didn’t even fall

Chorus:

Bridge:
And the spider leaped to let the mayfly know his fatal bite
But the strand that held the mayfly broke away
So the spider sees the mayfly fly on outa sight
But he knows that’s not the only one today
‘Cause in the water down below him, a ripple in the light
And a mayfly leaves the water to make her maiden flight

Quicksand
©2017 Greg Everett

Chorus:
I was drowning in quicksand until I fell in love with you
I was sinking deeper and deeper and there was nothin' to hold on to
And I know that I'd be a long gone man if you weren't there to pull me through
'Cause I was drowning in quicksand until I fell in love with you

Verse:
Now through all my troubles and all of my toils I never knew what happiness was
'Cause I'd hang around with all kinds of girls, that's what loneliness does
And like a quicksand hole that grabbed onto my soul I made the same mistakes it's true
'Cause I was drowning in quicksand until I fell in love with you

Chorus:

Bridge:
I was stuck in a hole
You threw me a line
I travelled many roads
Now you're the new paradigm

Verse:
Well now the years gone by, I can look up in the sky and thank my lucky star
Until you came along I had lived oh so wrong but that's all I knew so far
And then you threw me a line and time after time I found it led me out of the blues
'Cause I was drowning in quicksand until I fell in love with you

Chorus:
Track Name: Without You
Without You
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse
Martha Stewart, and Doctor Phil
Staring outside leaning on the window sill
The kids are at school and there’s nothing to do
Without you, without you

Verse
Washed all the laundry and mopped all the floors
The soaps and the game shows, becoming such a bore
As I look at the phone, I feel so alone
Without you, without you

Bridge
And I watched her cry as she tried to write
In the diary of her life
She can’t go back to school
She should know all the rules
You can lose...when you been a good wife

Verse
She stares at your picture while we’re tucked in bed
She’s not been the same since you been dead
We all loved you so and it’s so hard to go...on
Without you, without you, without you, without you
Track Name: I Just Pretend
I Just Pretend
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse:
I followed her, I know the route she’s takin’

She’s walkin’ right on down the street to him
Well she don’t know that deep inside I’m achin’
I wish she wouldn’t carry out her whims

Chorus:
Well I should go on home and wait there
Until it’s dawn and she comes slinkin’ in
But when she reaches up to let down her hair
I just pretend that I am sleepin’ in

Verse:
I knew when she walked right on by the drug store
She wouldn’t stop to buy a paper now
She kep’ on walkin’ right on up to his door
I guess she needs him more than me somehow

Chorus:

Verse Lead:

Verse:
This time when she comes home I’ll surprise
I’ll tell her that I’ve known it all along
She got to know or she’ll be none the wiser
That what I think she’s doin’ is all wrong

Chorus:

Verse
Spent a lifetime
Accumulatin’
All the dreams
I ever knew
But you took them
When you left me
I got shortchanged
On all the dreams I spent on you

Well you came into my life and you told me
That forever you and I would always be
Sharin’ dreams with each other
But you took my dreams with yours when you left me

Chorus
My, my, my, how convenient
To tell me that you’re workin’ so late
Why, why, why did you tell so many lies
They were written all over your face
I used to try, try, try walkin’ out of your life
Stuck in a revolvin’ door
But now it’s good bye, bye, bye for the last time
And you won’t ever see me no more

Verse
I made a mistake a few years ago
Thinkin’ you could settle down
It’s my mistake, not yours, I know
But I don’t need to stick around
I’m tired of tears in the middle of the night
And never knowin’ when you’ll come home
Don’t worry ‘bout me
I’m used to bein’ alone

Track Name: Winter Roses
Winter Roses
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse
Thorns in the frost, stiff in the wind
Life is lost in the cold
Accumulatin’ snows bury the rose
And the souls of the young and the old

Verse
Winter’s a lifeless place in the mind
Where nothing can grow or be free
It lowers the pose of the proud summer rose
And the lifeblood that everyone needs

Chorus
Wouldn’t it be a miracle if one day we could see
A rose that would bloom in the snow
Giving life and love all through the year
Winter roses

Verse
I’ve seen what the cold and the winter can do
To a rose that once was in bloom
But life must go on, though the living is gone
And the snow hides the rose in a tomb

Chorus

Music Man
©2017 Greg Everett

Verse
I don’t know how long I can hold out
Walkin’ a lonely mile
My pockets are empty and I am so tired
Of playin’ just for smiles
But on the stage is where I’ll be
No matter where I am
Because deep in my heart
I’m a music man

Chorus
So I’ll travel by day and I’ll play all night
‘Til there’s no other place to go
Playin’ guitar in a small town bar
Is the only life I know
Yes I’ll travel by day and I’ll play all night
‘Til there’s no other place to go
Playin’ guitar in a small town bar
Is the only life I know

Verse
Buy me a beer and I’ll sing real clear
Anybody’s song
And I ain’t too proud to sing real loud
The songs I’ve sung so long
People always know through the end of my show
I’ve played the best I can
Because deep in my heart I’m a music man

Chorus
