about

A humorous, swinging lament from a man admitting that his life has amounted to nothing, but proudly proclaiming his failures and lack of success as being his own choice - a self-made man.

A great groove with superb guitar solos echoing Duke Robillard.

lyrics

I never took things for granted
I always slept in beds that I'd made
It’s true I ain't got a cent
And it’s already spent
I’m a self-made-man

I always found what I looked for
But I never went searchin’ too far
I got nothin’ but time
None of it mine
I’m a self-made-man

You won’t see my name in the papers
Or listed on the stock exchange
I'm just flying low
And stayin' outta harms way

I got no door for folks to come knockin’
And as for friends I guess less is more
I got nothin’ to share
No one to care
I’m a self-made-man

You won’t find my name in the papers
Or listed on the stock exchange
I'm just flying low
And stayin' outta harms way

I remember the things that I need to
And I’ve forgotten nearly all that I knew
But I’ve got some advice
Expect nothin’ from life
And be a self-made-man

Yeah take my advice
You won't get nothin’ from life
Just be a self-made-man
Yeah a self-made-man
