Robin Gunns FRW Snarky, irreverent lyrics, sweet arrangements with tasteful guitar. Just a pinch of Nashville hokey, which no decent ballad should be without. Wish I could write and play half as good. R.G. Favorite track: Three Little Questions.

About ROLLING IN THE TRASH:

Genres – From rock to country to punk and back again

Song themes - Life, death, alcohol and men behaving badly.

Along with luminaries such as Lou Reed and Ray Manzarek, three good buddies of mine passed away in 2013. All die-hard rockers and rollers. Trying to make sense of that loss, I included three special songs about them on this album. I've done my best to keep every track alive and real, and I hope they would have approved!

Track Name: In the Ninety Nine
This is the place where the real folk go
And all the hipsters don’t even know…..
about the Ninety Nine
Everything is fine
You can shake it loose till the end of time

You kissed goodbye to the American dream
Over here it’s a different scene

In the Ninety Nine
Everything is fine
You can shake it loose till the end of time

Nobody’s gonna judge you, you can be just who you are
Nobody’s gonna rush you, and Tanja runs the bar

in the Ninety Nine
Everything is fine
You can shake it loose till the end of time


Warum siehst du traurig aus? Scheib dein Traene sofort raus
Du bekommst keine zweite Chance - C’mon lets dance!

in the Ninety Nine
Everything is fine
You can shake it loose till the end of time
Track Name: Three AM
I lay down my head but my my head’s too hot
I’m burning up and my nerves are shot
I got some pills but they don’t do jack
Jesus Christ, I want my money back

It’s three a.m. -feels like the end
See you in my dreams if I ever get to sleep again
Gonna miss you

Lay down on my bed but the bed’s too hard
Too much going on in my back yard
Some are blessed, but others fall
It’s a random thing and it makes no sense at all

It’s three a.m.......

Got a worried mind and a pounding heart
We’re painting crazy pictures in the dark
And I’m looking at the deepest cut
This time round I’m really cracking up

It’s three a.m......
Track Name: You Me and Alcohol
There’s no more good times – and there’s no more fun
There’s no more lovin’ when day is done
No honey baby - no little doll
it’s just you, me and alcohol

You and me and alcohol
We all went out for a little stroll
I got back home, don’t ask me how
You’re still walking now

There’s no more good times.....

Stella Artois rolled into your life
She’s the mistress and I’m the wife
She traps grown men like little flies
Don’t you realise?

No more good times...........

How the hell can I compete
With my damaged heart and my two left feet?
One and one and one is three
That’s one too many for me

No more good times........

it’s just you, me and alcohol – there’s nothing left to say
it’s just you, me and alcohol - all the way
it’s just you, me and alcohol – every day
It’s just you. me and alcohol
Track Name: Let's Rock Tonight
This world is full of heartache and this world is full of tears
You find what you were looking for and then it disappears
This world is out to break me but I’m putting up a fight
Let’s make this world a better place – let’s rock tonight


Something shifted deep inside
The room was spinning round
All the stars are lining up for you and me
Let’s shoot ‘em down


This world is closing in on me, I don’t know what to do
I haven’t got an answer, I haven’t got a clue
So fill my glass and take me with you - I’ll be alright
Let's make this world a better place – let’s rock tonight


Come a little closer babe
Said the spider to the fly
I still remember every thing we did
But I can’t remember why


Tomorrow I will suffer, tomorrow I will pay
But I ain’t gonna let my common sense get in the way
This world can’t bring me down if I’m as high as a kite
Let’s make this world a better place – let’s rock tonight
Track Name: Rolling in the Trash (solo version)
Shot your mouth off though you’re long gone
Had to tell everybody what went on
You pissed on that one last sweet memory
Pissed on the good times you had with me

Cause you been rolling, rolling, rolling,
Rolling in the trash
Rolling, rolling, rolling
You couldn’t walk the line if you was Johnny Cash

You used to point the finger, take the high ground
If I came out late I must be messin’ round
Here we go, it’s another fine speech
But you don’t practice what you preach

Cause you been rolling, rolling, rolling...........


Bad girls, bad news,
Bad karma and bad moves
Look in the mirror if you wanna move on
Everybody sing along

Cause you been rolling, rolling, rolling...........
Track Name: Three Little Questions
I got three little questions
Think it over, take your time
But I can hear the traffic starting down below
Tell me, How much do you love her?
How much do you want her?
And how much would it take to let her go?

You’re safe and warm
It’s cold outside
You got your home
I’ve got my pride

How much do you love her?

I got three little questions
Take it easy, take it slow
But look me in the eyes and let me know
How much do you love her?
How much do you want her?
How much would it take to let her go?

Don’t call around
Don’t ring my bell
Give me some answers
Or go to hell

How much do you love her?........
Track Name: O.V.E.R.
O-V-E-R

Left you far behind me but it wasn’t hard to find me
There’s a trail of teardrops leading to my door
But let me make it clear that you’ve got no business here
Honey, you’re not welcome any more

‘Cause it’s O-V-E-R. over
Which letter don’t you understand?
Yes it’s O-V-E-R. over
Do what you like ‘cause I don’t give a damn.

There’s noone here with me, I got no secret company
I know you don’t believe me but it’s true
I’m running out of patience with your jealous accusations
The only one who screwed it up is you

And it’s O-V-E-R. over.....

I said you had to choose between the marriage and the booze
It didn’t take you long to throw our love away
Now you want it back - it ain’t easy keeping track
You’d best believe me when I say

That it’s O-V-E-R. over.........
Track Name: Wherever You Go
Saturday night – but it’s not alright
Pull down the shades and dim the light

Who would have thought? Who would have known?
That we’d be drinking to the ghost of David Crome

An open road and a restless soul
He’s the man who made the good times roll

Who would have thought?..............

Wish I’d seen the danger signs
Wish I’d read between the lines

Who would have thought?..............

Goodbye buddy – miss you so
I hope you’re happy everywhere you go

Who would have thought?...............
Track Name: With The Angels
Do you think you’ll live forever? Do you really know the score?
Is there really someone waiting when you hit the other shore?
There were shock waves on the ether on the day we heard the news
Now we’re pickin' up the pieces and we’re sifting through the clues


Are you happy with the angels?
You took your leave – it wasn’t long
From one moment to another
There you were - now you’re gone


You’re with us in the front room as we talk about the past
The magic and the memories, the dreams that didn’t last
I recall those conversations and I feel a sudden chill
So much left to talk about but now we never will

Are you happy with the angels?........

Some are born to make it – some are born to lose
Few of us are bold enough to live the life we choose
So as the planets keep on turning and the sun sets in the west
I had to write this song cause you were different from the rest.

Are you happy with the angels?............
Track Name: Denmark Street
They’re taking this old place apart
They’re ripping its living heart
I got the pictures in my head
All the rest is good as dead
That’s where I found my black guitar
Cool S G with a whammy bar
Brick by brick they kill the beat
Down on Denmark street

Money talks louder than people like me
Money talks louder than people like me
Money talks louder than people like me …. people like me

How could I be so naïve
No happy end, and no reprieve
Nothing I can do or say
Turn around and walk away
We used to meet in old Soho
Always had some place to go
They pulled the rug from under my feet
Down on Denmark street

Money talks louder than people like me......

That’s where I found my black guitar
Cool S G with a whammy bar
Brick by brick they kill the beat
Down on Denmark street

Money talks louder than people like me..........

That’s where I found my black guitar
Cool S G with a whammy bar
