Lyrics:

When Worlds Collide by J.D. Hutchison/J.D. Hutchison Music/BMI

Ain't seen no use for me to hang around
Since some old new love you have found
Guess I'm just a - gonna go this whole world 'round
Since you took it in your head you're gonna throw me down

I'm a-slickin, gonna whiz, I'm bound to leave you
Gotta zoom on outta here but I'll be back again
And I would like to tell you but I can't say when
I'll just show you what it's like when world's collide

My Mona told me things so hard to know
She put a hurtin in my heart and made me feel so low
I never never never thought that she could treat me so
I never never ever thought that she could make me go

I'm a-slickin, gonna whiz, I'm bound to leave you
Gotta zoom on outta here but I'll be back again
And I would like to tell you but I can't say when
I'll just show you what it's like when world's collide

Y'taken away my eyes so I cannot see
Y'taken away my heart and soul from me
Taken away my last chance to be free
Might's well have all the faith and love I need

I'm a-slickin, gonna whiz, I'm bound to leave you
Gotta zoom on outta here but I'll be back again
And I would like to tell you but I can't say when
I'll just show you what it's like when world's collide

Song notes:

When I met J.D. Hutchison in the mid 1970’s, I found a friend and mentor, someone with a grasp of the wide world of music, and a fine songwriter who comes from a traditional music base. Hot Rize eventually recorded three of his wonderful songs. Since his early days traveling solo and playing with his brother Bob in the Hutchison Brothers band, he’s continued to write and perform his songs and poems, and acted on stage in various productions, mostly staying close to his Athens Ohio home. Now 75 years young, he’s a fixture around his college town home, holding court at his favorite breakfast spot and playing gigs as a solo or with his loyal band Realbilly Jive. Never bothered much by the music business, he remains a great entertainer and one of the best songwriters I know. I still need the occasional check-up with J.D.

In November a mutual friend approached me about helping J.D. document his newer songs. It was very easy to accept the invitation and in late April I got to spend a week in southeast Ohio working on a recording at Bernie Nau’s Peachfork studios. The recording You and the World Outside should come out in September on Howdy Skies Records and a Kickstarter campaign is mounting in the coming weeks to pay for its production, manufacture, and promotion.

To warm things up for his own release, I decided to put out my own versions of some songs he didn’t include on You and the World Outside. This bluesy song has been around for a good while and makes a nice intro to his honest and true music. Watch for another J.D. song next month on Short Order Sessions.
