about

She Might Say Yes is really a meditation on the universe of responses a guy could get to the question, "Hey, do you want to go out sometime?" While I drew some lyrical inspiration from both Bob Dylan and Jimmy Buffett, neither of them are to blame for the final product. A hat tip is also due to Nolan McKelvey, an outstanding songwriter and musician who I first heard use the term "sensitive singer-songwriter" during a songwriting workshop at Pickin' in the Pines, the annual bluegrass & acoustic music festival in Flagstaff, Arizona. That expression finds a home in this song. One other note: Please don't shoot the recording engineer. He owes the bar too much money.

lyrics

She might say yes, she might say no, she might say maybe
She might say baby I think you must be smokin’ dope
She might say come on over to my place, bring some flowers and chocolate
And a bar of nicely scented soap

She might say yes, she might say no, she might say maybe
She might say let’s go some place where we can be alone
She might say I don’t take date requests from Facebook or My Space
If you want to take me out you gotta call me on the phone

She might say come in I’ll give you shelter from the storm
She might say I don’t want to get all tangled up in blue
She might say I’m not looking for a relationship right now
But what the heck I guess we could just get drunk
And do what I’m guessing you’d like to do

She might say yes, she might say no, she might say maybe
She might say baby, oh I hate to turn you down
She might say I gotta work until about 5 today
What do you say if we meet some place downtown

She might say damn boy, it sure took you long enough
I was starting to think you’d never get a clue
She might say I’ve been seeing someone, but it’s not working out
Maybe it’s time I try somebody new

She might say yes, she might say no, she might say maybe
She might say I’d be up for having a couple drinks
She might say this is not the sort of decision I should make all by myself
I think I better ask my girlfriend what she thinks

She might say yes if you promise to sing me some love songs
Ah but most of those songs you write are just so sad
She might say these nights are all so dark and cold and lonely
Cuddling up with you don’t sound too bad

She might say yes, she might say no, she might say maybe
She might say baby it would just be so wrong
‘cause you know my mama told never ever date one of those sensitive singer-songwriters
‘cause honey your personal live might just wind up in a
He’s gonna tell everybody about
Your personal life just might wind up in a song
