The suicide note

Happiness is a drink called alcohol

Thinking inside the grave

Dear Rose

For Jack so loved the whisky

The day the sun explodes

Time is of the nonsense

The soulmate

I have been slashed in half by love

The secret to money and power

The Wizard of loss

I am lonesome in this place Mighty God

The devil’s advocate uncensored

Breakfast with death

Misery begins at forty

Matters of life and death

Boozing my self confidence

While I was busy getting drunk

A funeral for my dreams

Too lonely to be alive

Her love poisoned my heart, whisky poisoned my liver

Whisky Dixie

The love of nobody's life

The departed

Domestic Whisky Salvation

Tell me why

A tribute to Merle Haggard (1937-2016)

Unhappy dummy

West Peace field

Any cheap whisky will do

Good at growing old

The kind of wife you marry when you have no money

A letter to my late grandma

From the heart of a simple man

Whichever way you choose to be happy

The rat race

A plot to sedate the mind and free the heart

Food can’t live with it can’t live without it

The cheapest drinking place in town

I have stories in my heart I want to tell,

Some of people in paradise and others in hell.
