about

A collaboration with Jack Miller, this is my baseline acoustic rendition which I sent to Jack. He will provide further input on lyrics, and will contribute instrumental additions and perhaps vocal harmony. We'll see how the song shapes up!

lyrics

Shallow Flow
by Richard Schletty and Jack Miller

Jimmy has shiny new wheels
Wants to feel what everyone feels
Keeps all his stuff real tidy
Trouble is he has a mighty 

Shallow flow
Such a shallow flow
There's a river deep
That he ought to know

He goes around from bar to café
Season tickets, trips to L.A.
He's very good at telling his story
Yet he always falls short of the glory 

Shallow flow
Such a shallow flow
There's a river deep
That he longs to know

He's all wrapped up in rigamarole
He couldn't pray to save his soul
Never had a day of rest
Didn't know the meaning of blessed

'Til a saving grace
Filled his shallow flow
Shame and guilt erased
Such an awesome thrill
When his heart was bathed
In Mercy's cleansing Will
No more shallow flow
No more shallow flow
No more shallow flow
