Setting wheels doin’ 60, onto South 84
Got my back to Boston, where my mother was born,
Must have hit every town, from Holyoke to the Cohasset shore.

Then it’s on to Philly, and another go round,
And the lines keep on coming, but I can’t stop the sound,
Of a six string guitar, and these songs that are running thru my veins.

And some lucky hearts, have learned to settle down,
Mine keeps trying to fly, though I’m tied to the ground,
and the road is like a pirate, that waylays your sails on down.

The shipyards they toil, and the skyscrapers rise,
And the years go in circles, ‘neath these travelers eyes,
And my heart’s getting harder, but sometimes I cry.

And then I remember the trees on that road,
and barrels and blossoms and porch lights, tell me I’m home
Oh and then I remember, that old rocking chair,
and barrels and blossoms and porch lights, tell me I’m there

Heading westbound on 90, there’s a fire on the plains,
Dakota sunset, ‘cross the badlands is fading,
Then it’s on to Seattle, Portland, and down to Santa Cruz.

In the desert the wind, thru the Joshua tree blows,
And the Riley bird sings, and the Sullyberries grow,
And off in the Holy land, the Jordan river flows,

And this voice must have sung, every song unreconciled,
And these fingers tried to dance, every fingerstyle,
And the chords strike the heartlands and go on, for miles and miles,
and miles and miles.

The shipyards they toil, and the skyscrapers rise,
And the years go in circles, ‘neath these travelers eyes,
And my heart’s getting harder, but sometimes I cry. 

And then I remember the trees on that road,
and barrels and blossoms and porch lights, tell me I’m home
And the fog on the beaches, lights on the shore
And barrels and blossoms and porch lights, tell me there’s more.

Barrels and blossoms and porch lights, barrels and blossoms and porch lights
Barrels and blossoms and porch lights, bring me back home

New Video: Thom Sequoia – Barrels, Blossoms, & Porch Lights – Live at The Homestead Resort with Pat Arp on lead guitar

It was a beautiful drive, and a beautiful memorial weekend Saturday, May 29, 2010.

I was able to spend some time over the weekend with family, in majestic settings,
and also am grateful to Pat Arp for graciously joining me on stage with his killer leads
that perfectly complimented my songs, especially this one.

Here is the video
for my song Barrels, Blossoms, and Porch Lights.

Below the video I have also posted
the lyrics for those of you who like reading the what what.

BARRELS, BLOSSOMS, & PORCH LIGHTS

Settin wheels doin 60, onto south 84
Got my back to boston, where my mother was born,
Must have hit every town form Holyoke to the Cohasset shore.

Then it’s on to Philly, and another go round,
And the lines keep on coming, but I can’t stop the sound,
Of a six string guitar, and these songs that are running thru my veins.

And some lucky hearts, have learned to settle down,
Mine keeps trying to fly, though I’m tied to the ground,
and the road is like a pirate that waylays your sails on down.

The shipyards they toil, and the skyscrapers rise,
And the years go in circles, ‘neath these travelers eyes,
And my hearts getting harder, but sometimes I cry.

And then I remember the trees on that road,
And barrels, and blossoms, and porch lights, tell me I’m home.
Oh and then I remember that old rocking chair,
And barrels, and blossoms, and porch lights, tell me I’m there

Heading westbound on 90, there’s a fire on the plains,
Dakota sunset, ‘cross the badlands is fading,
Then it’s on to Seattle, Portland, and down to Santa Cruz.

In the desert the wind, thru the Joshua tree blows,
And the Riley bird sings, and the Sullyberries grow,
And off in the Holy land, the Jordan river flows,

And this voice must have sung, every song unreconciled,
And these fingers tried to dance, every fingerstyle,
And the chords strike the heartlands and go on, for miles and miles,
and miles and miles.

The shipyards they toil, and the skyscrapers rise,
And the years go in circles, ‘neath these travelers eyes,
And my hearts getting harder, but sometimes I cry.

And then I remember the trees on that road,
And barrels, and blossoms, and porch lights, tell me I’m home.
And the fog on the beaches, lights on the shore
And barrels and blossoms and porch lights, tell me there’s more.

Barrels, and blossoms, and porch lights;
Barrels, and blossoms, and porch lights;
Barrels, and blossoms, and porch lights;
bring me back home

2009 – The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly (or is that the beautifully challenged?)

In some ways 2009 was a great year for me, and other ways it wasn’t quite what I hoped for.

But watch out 2010, cause here I come! So many great projects coming this year, here’s 2009’s best for Thom Sequoia, and 2010’s plan to rule the world…..o.k., maybe just rule the little space here surrounding me….yuk, yuk.

2009 Great Stuff:
*  First and foremost, my wife and 4 sons are healthy with no major ailments, and through the good and the bad we are surviving! Love you Kim, Jordan, Joshua, Riley, and Sully!

*  Though my parents are both passed on, I hope they are smiling on a cushy celestial cloud. And by the way, while your up there, if you happen to run into the Almighty there’s a few things here on planet Earth I sure wish he’d fix, like…..oh, sorry, that’s for a different sort of blog all together!

*  God bless my brother and sisters, Susan, Robert, Kathie, Cheryl – love ya. It was great Read more…

Thom Sequoia & Ms. J (Linda Jackson)

On my recent trip to The SF Bay Area, I stopped by my High School and visited Valhalla with me and the boys. We got to catch up with Mrs. Linda Jackson, who was our illustrious Theatre teacher, and has been championing the cause of the Arts for over thirty years. Our group of thespians and music teenagers was the first group she taught at Irvington.

I got to see most of the gang at the class of 79′ reunion, even though I was class of 80′. Including Jim Suth, Tony Pagan, Athena Duros, Gayle Thames, Lynne Anderson, Cheryl Kratochvil, Kyle dawson, Neil Burkhart, Tim Tyree, Ken Centers, Cindy Dawson, Keri Quade, Bev Hansen, Lisa, Laura…….and so many more I can’t name them all. It was great to see you all!

But back to Ms. J! Here’s a photo I took with her in Valhalla. I know she will be retiring in the next few years, and it sure would be great to do a benefit concert there in the next year to help raise money for the arts, being as how the State of California has cut budgets drastically in the college and public education systems.

What do you say California friends? Would you come?
Let’s do it!

Redwoods Ho!

Got to take a trip to California over the last week. Went to a IHS 79″ class re-union. It was great to see friends I hadn’t seen in a long while. My friends and family have been encouraging me to get on Facebook – which I now have done.

Also went camping with my buds from the VDC. We’ve been hiking and camping together for over 30 years, since we started in High School. Kyle (Duece), Neil (Hollywood), Kenny (KB / Nostalgia) Tim (Timlee / Wildman), and me Thom (Thoma / Ace). Love you guys!

Got to play a little private concert and such. Recorded a few live music videos in the redwoods. We’ll see if they turn out good enough to post on YouTube and here, etc.

Also got to see very briefly two of my sista’s – Cheryl and Kathie. sorry Sue I didn’t also get to see ya. Love you guys.
