  1. I’m wondering about one of your songs in particular. They locked your old man out. Is this about a strike in a rail yard? Is it possible to get the words?

  2. Richard Miller Says:

    My wife and I heard you sing at the Seattle Union Hall sometime between 94 & 96 and you sang a song about Seattle you said would come out a future album. Did it and how can we get it?

  3. J. D. Bearden Says:

    I asked my question in 2012 above and still no answer. Wow, no wonder we are still having such a hard time organizing!

    We’re having a hard time organizing because I forgot to answer your question? I had not heard that analysis before. I’ll pass it on to Steve Early. In answer to your questions, the song is about a lock out at a shipyard. The lyrics are on the album, We Ain’t Gonna Give it Back. You can get the words by ordering the CD. Thanks.

  5. Chuck Puckett Says:

    Songs of our times is a classic album! It brought us to see you at a house concert in los angeles in the 90’s. Just a wonderful album!

  6. What is the street (release) date for “We Ain’t Gonna Give It Back”?

    Are you aware that CDBaby is no longer a retail outlet for music?

    Hi Dennis – The most recent version of We Ain’t Gonna Give It Back (expanded) came out in September 2018. And yes, I am aware of CD Baby. I will edit my website. Thanks. John
