Bookish Southern Man


Hey, y’all, my bookish Southern man, Jon, has written a song.

Guess what the song is named? Coincidence…it’s called Bookish Southern Man.

It isn’t really autobiographical, though.

What does it do? It grooves, y’all!

What do you think?


  1. hey sweet annie, just listened to all of Jon’s songs. i love them, and wow to ALL his talents. The instruments, does he play them all? Is Nathan on the drums? I love the lyrics on each of them. My favorite is the “forty” song. I’m picturing Bob Dylan playing, and then Jon on Austin City Limits. I don’t even know if he’s referring to Dylan, but I love it! i hope yall are staying warm in the arctic blasts that have been traveling to down here. If only it would bring us one good, fun snow. we’ve moved to a much bigger house…6 bedrooms! a dream! just renting, but what a joy to have so much more space. Jon’s “gotta work” song makes me smile, how well it fits mine and joseph’s life! I think I’m going to have to find a job one of these days, I have no idea how we’re going to make it… I can’t even think about braces, or I’ll get chest pains ;). But that’s been my thought these past 16 years, and we’ve always had what we needed. anyway, please tell Jon that I think he’s awesome, and please know that yall are welcome anytime! He can go and kiss you on the square 🙂 …and we have lots and lots of room now. We can leave all the kids at home and go have some fun! well have a great week, hope homeschooling, getting kids to school, making lunches, making dinners, laundry, etc, etc all goes well. 🙂

  2. I have been LOVING Jon’s songwriting. You are two of the most amazing and versatile people I know. Period.
