about

A funny thing happened on my way to getting old. My husband of thirty seven years, Gary, surprised me with an electric guitar for my 50th birthday after reading my bucket list. On my list, learning to play the electric guitar was next to tap dancing. I took guitar lessons thinking maybe I could become good enough to play some covers. I was shocked when I hit a C chord one day and a song tumbled out. That song was “From the Inside Out.” The last seven years have been filled with writing lyrics and chords as I chased the melodies that danced around in my head, and learning how to play the music I had written.
The most important thing I have learned on my journey is that I am never defined as a person. If you dream it, you are half way to making it a reality. If  I can do this, what else can I do?  Maybe even tap dance at seventy!

Julie Clark Shubert South Carolina

If you listened to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and every rocking song you could get your hands on from 1966 to now and stirred it up with a Fender Strat and sang it from a woman's perspective, you would have Julie Clark Shubert "From the Inside Out." When Julie turned 50, her husband gave her a Fender Strat, the stars aligned and her natural gift appeared, the rest is kinda a blur. ... more

Track Name: I Wish You Well (What Didn't Happen)
Wish You Well (What Didn’'t Happen)

1)We were only just eighteen,
We laughed, we joked, we made a scene,
We danced down empty halls,
We couldn’t see our crystal ball.
We graduated, we danced all night,
You held me close, you held me tight,
But when we parted we were still just friends,
We went to college it was the end.

Chorus: I wish you well, only time can tell,
Life is short and so let it go, let it go. (x2)…

2)I saw you again the other day,
I met your wife, she’s very nice,
But when I looked into your eyes,
I knew you were in love with what never was.

Chorus: I wish you well, only time can tell,
Life is short and so let it go, let it go…. (x2)

Bridge: What didn’'t happen, let it be, we can’'t re-write history….

3)You’'ve got your boys, you’ve got your wife,
Enjoy the love that’s in your life,
You didn’'t let me get away,
Live life full every day.

Chorus: I wish you well, only time can tell,
Life is and short so let it go, let it go. (x2)
Track Name: I Make The Coffee
I Make the Coffee

1)You say we’re partners that much is true,
You say we’re partners, but what do you do? What do you do?

Chorus: I make the coffee,
I sweep the floor,
I don’t want to fight, but it’s not right,
You know it’s not right.

2) I know you work hard, but so do I,
You see the shoes on the floor, but you walk on by, you walk on by.

Chorus: I make the coffee,
I sweep the floor,
I don’t want to fight, but it’s not right,
You know it’s not right.


3) Where do clean clothes come from? Maybe heaven above
Food appears in our fridge, must be from love, we’ve got a lot of love.

Bridge:
You are a good man, but we need to chat,
I thought you’d figure it out, what if you, what if you, what if you have?

4) So here’s your notice, the cleaning service has stopped,
The cook is tired, its time to step up, its time to step up.

Chorus: I make the coffee,
I sweep the floor,
I don’t want to fight, but it’s not right,
You know it’s not right.
Track Name: Mary, Mary
Mary, Mary

1)Mary, Mary you’re so contrary,
Does your garden even grow?
It’s not filled up with daffodils
It’s covered up with snow.

Chorus:
Do you know, do you know, what makes your garden, your garden grow?
Do you know, do you know, what makes your garden, your garden grow?

2) I know he hurt you, then desert you,
He left you alone to die, he didn’t kill you,
But he willed you to spend your life alone.


Chorus:
Do you know, do you know, what makes your garden, your garden grow?
Do you know, do you know, what makes your garden, your garden grow?

Bridge: You’re stronger than you think, well, you’re stronger than you know
When fear subsides then love can grow. (x2)…

3) Mary, Mary you’re so contrary
I hope one day you’ll understand
When you find love in your own skin
You can find it with a man.

Chorus:
Do you know, do you know, what makes your garden, your garden grow?
Do you know, do you know, what makes your garden, your garden grow?

Track Name: The Change
The Change

1) OK, we were making it through, taking care of everyone and everything too
We were dealing with it all, we were getting by,
Then things got really weird, started to grow a beard,
Life changed in a hormonal flash.

Chorus:
We’re going through the change have mercy, going through the change,
C'’mon sisters, sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out,
Sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out.

2) Can’t remember where we are, can’t remember where we parked our car,
Can’t read the phone book, can’t sleep at night,
We’re sad, we’re mad, we’re every emotion we’ve ever had all at once, it’s a free for all.

Chorus:
We’re going through the change have mercy, going through the change,
C'’mon sisters, sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out,
Sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out.


Bridge
It’s our turn to work it out, find out who we are and what we’re all about.

3) So I figured out what to do, bought a convertible Mr2,
Learned some tennis and some guitar too and its working for me,
You know that we’ve earned it; you know that we deserve it.
We’ll make it to the other side; we’ll be stronger too.

Chorus:
We’re going through the change have mercy, going through the change,
C'’mon sisters, sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out,
Sweat it out, scream it out, cry it out, c'’mon and work it out.

Will I Ever See

1) You walk in the room, sucking up the oxygen so fast, I gasp to breathe like a fish on the shore

Never

I never thought never would be this good.
