Lyrics

MIGHT JUST HAPPEN TO YOU
Steve Thomas & Rod Lewis

I spend all day doing nothing at all
Takes all day to do it
Had some things I had to do
Just sat back said screw it
Now I’m not like most other guys
Don’t do the things that they do
And if you marry well my friends
You know it might just happen to you
Might happen to you
Might happen to you

Had a job not long ago
Don’t know how I did it
Went to work most every day
Regretting every minute
Now I’m not like most other guys
I can’t tell you what it is that they do
And if you marry well my friends
You know this might just happen to you
Might happen to you
Might happen to you

I couldn’t have had a better life
It’s all worked out just fine
Spending my days just hanging out
I can’t even tell you the time
Them other dudes are kicking it hard
Bringing on them blues
But if you marry well my friends
You know it might just happen to you
might just happen to you
might just happen to you
might just happen to you
might just happen

 

 

 

Might Just Happen to You was written by Rod Lewis and Steve Thomas a few years ago. Rod, as he often does, had this melody line swimming around in his head and in no time at all began putting lyrics to it. Steve arranged it into a complete song with verses and chorus. Steve had a guitar lick pretty much worked out which Jeff plays using a wah-wah pedal. During the recording session, Steve actually worked the wah-wah pedal while Jeff played his part. This seemed to work so much better since active use of a wah-wah pedal had not been in Jeff’s repertoire for many years. Truth be told, walking and chewing gum can be a stretch for Jeff, so we all benefited from Steve's wrist action on the wah-wah pedal on this one. When it was brought to Jeff, he added a guitar walk down in the intro beneath Steve's intro lick. The walk down implies some different chord changes but, in reality, is simply played over the primary chords . He also added a brief lick at the end of the verses to match Steve's tasty piano part. One unusual instrumentation to this song is the addition of parallel trombone parts. Steve played in the orchestra in both high school and during his time in the military. While some consider the trombone an atypical choice for more modern music, this group has delighted in using selected instruments from many genre's when the mood dictates. Wanting to put some harmonies on the song we all spent an evening together trying out ideas. The result is an example of the creativity and vocal prowess of Chris Rininger and Ray Burns, who, together, came up with these fun and whimsical harmonies. 

 

In the end, this song is a delightful commentary on the lucky man who finds a partner to support him in this life. The song is mostly auto-biographical as a recognition of Rod’s timely good-luck in marrying his perfect soul-mate. Someone who lets him be him and has been by his side and supported him for so many years.
