Everybody's Gotta Live Lyrics:

Everybody's gotta live,

And everybody's gonna die.

Everybody's gotta live,

I think you know the reason why.

Sometimes the going gets so good.

Then again it gets pretty rough.

But when I have you in my arms baby,

You know I just can't, I just can't get enough.

Everybody's gotta live,

And everybody's gonna die.

Everybody's gonna have a good time.

I think you, I think you know the reason why.

Somebody was standing on the corner, yesterday baby.

He couldn't hardly tie his shoes.

But he had a harmonica and a kirsch wrapped around his neck, and he sure could.

Sure could play it good.

Everybody's gotta live,

And everybody's gonna die.

Everybody's gonna have a good time.

I think you know the reason why.

I feel like I've seen just about a million sunsets.

Ordinary Man Lyrics:

I was unprepared for fame
Then everybody knew my name
No more lonely nights, it's all for you
I have traveled many miles
I've seen tears and I've seen smiles
Just remember that it's all for you
Don't forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down, it's just an empty stage
Yes, I've been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man
I've made momma cry
Don't know why I'm still alive
Yes, the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man
Many times I've lost control
They tried to kill my rock and roll
Just remember I'm still here for you
I don't wanna say goodbye
When I do,...

Here are the lyrics to Sugar Coat by Little Big Town...

I turn the bathroom light on

To take my makeup off

Look at myself in the eye

And wonder why I wear it anyway

Another car drives by

I wonder where you are

The kids are all in bed

And everything but you is in its place

From the street view looking in

It's pretty as a picture

A home sweet home

Sometimes I wish I liked drinking

Sometimes I wish I liked pills

Wish I could sleep with a stranger

But someone like me never will

Sometimes I hardly can stand it

I just smile with a lump in my throat

Jimmy Dillon & Dayan Kai @ Maui Coffee Attic Nov. 9th

Oct 28, 2019

Aloha friends, 

I want to invite you to something that I feel has the potential to be a magical Maui evening you won't want to miss. 

Let me give you a bit of back story about why I think this Evening Of Acoustic Soul has so much potential to be a once in a lifetime gig. 

A couple of months ago, I was meeting a friend at the Wednesday farmers market at the Waipuna Chapel in Kula. While chatting with my friend, I overheard this down and dirty Delta Blues guitar slide in the background. 

Without hesitation, I hurried over to where this stunning tone was coming from. The sound was simply too good to ignore. I had to see who was playing this incredible music.

10 seconds later, I'm standing in front of Dayan Kai with a grin across my face. 

As he finished up the song, I introduce myself and we got to chatting. Instantly, I liked the guy, bought his CD, and asked if he'd like to get together for a jam. 

What happened next was pure Maui Magic!

Dayan and...
