about

I always thought I was shy but it turns out I am just cautious.

lyrics

HE DON’T SHY AWAY
© Bob Wright
he don’t shy away from sunshine
he don’t shy away from rain
he don’t shy away from anything
he thinks makes him a man

he don’t shy away from working
he don’t shy away from fun
he don’t shy away from anything he thinks that can be done

he ain’t shy (he ain’t shy)
my oh my (my oh my)
don’t matter just how hard it gets
you know he’s gonna try
he ain’t shy (he ain’t shy)
my oh my (my oh my)
keeps one eye on the task at hand
and one eye on the sky

he don’t shy away from women
he don’t shy away from men
he don’t shy away from children
cats and dogs and fountain pens

he don’t shy away from laughing
he don’t shy away from tears
he don’t shy away from facing
up to all the things he fears

he ain’t shy (he ain’t shy)
my oh my (my oh my)
don’t matter just how hard it gets
you know he’s gonna try
he ain’t shy (he ain’t shy)
my oh my (my oh my)
keeps one eye on the task at hand
and one eye on the sky

he don’t shy away from haircuts
he don’t shy away from beards
he don’t shy away from doing things
that some folks might find weird

he don’t shy away from whiskey
he don’t shy away from tea
he don’t shy away from drinking
anything that brings him peace

he ain’t shy (he ain’t shy)
my oh my (my oh my)
don’t matter just how hard it gets
you know he’s gonna try
he ain’t shy (he ain’t shy)
my oh my (my oh my)
keeps one eye on the task at hand
and one eye on the sky

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
