T.G Sheppard

About the time I wrote this one, country music was in a romantic state of mind. T.G. Sheppard was one of the big stars leading the C/W charts with lush melodies that were a bit different. TG was one of Elvis Presley’s best friends and hung out with the King in Graceland in 1978-1982. Elvis helped launch his career with the purchase of a tour bus.

The very popular songs he recorded include the "Last Cheater's Waltz" (1979); "I'll Be Coming Back for More" and "Do You Wanna Go to Heaven" (1980); "Party Time" "I Loved 'Em Every One" and "Party Time" (1981); "Finally" "Only One You," and "War is Hell (On the Homefront Too)" (1982).”I Loved 'Em Everyone" is particularly clever in the offbeat rhythm in the opening strains and was a particular favorite of mine. It crossed over into the pop single charts and may very well be his biggest hit. If you are not familiar with it, check it out as it is a catchy tune.

I loved the formula and wrote two tunes that followed this style of writing and penned “Passion of the Night” and “Tangled in Love.” I was submitting songs to theNashville studios and received a hot sheet of sessions from a gentleman who circulated around the studios. I was so busy submitting songs that I decided to make up a songwriter album and that would speed up the process of submitting songs for the Nashville sessions. By the time I finished the album, the tipster went out of business and I had nowhere to send the tunes. Oh well.

Opportunities come and go and the album did sell locally at my performances. I have around thirty vinyl copies left and will have this available on CD and DVD by the time it appears in this HUB.

Passion of the Night

Lately I’ve been trying to decide

How to tell you how I feel inside.

Searching for words for a long, long time

Cause lately you’ve been on my mind—

Wasn’t feeling right—wasn’t feeling right.

I’ve tried getting you out of my heart

Trouble is I didn’t know where to start.

I no longer want to be just a friend

Let’s be lover’s from now to the end—



Let’s find the passion that will make us lovers.

Let it happen and try to discover

The good time we’ve missed

And tried so hard to resist.

Let’s find the passion waiting in the dark.

Let’s make it happen; hear the beating of my heart.

Let’s find the passion that will make everything right.

Let’s find the passion


2. You’re the woman I’ve been dreaming of

Let’s be a man and a woman in love.

I’ve had these feelings for so long.

Couldn’t see myself going on

Without you—living without you.

I’ve got feelings I can’t resist—

Want to make up for the time we’ve missed.

I’m searching for love and hoping to find

This is the night I’m going to make you mine

And do what lover’s do


I’m searching Oh oh oh.

I’m searching Oh oh oh.

I’m searching for love and hoping to find

Now is the moment I’m going to make you mine!

Chorus and End.

Tangled in Love

      Another great tune RJ.

      Telling a friend that they mean more than that can leave us very vunerable and can end the friendship if they don't have the same passion.

      Hi Cardrisa--you naughty gal. My computer is blushing and the hard drive is melting away with all that passion that appears in your latest HUB. I think your HUB started a heat wave that is passing over the entire USA!

      I like the song. I couldn't listen to the video because the sound on my computer is not working, but I read them. I appreciate the "rest of the story" that you always provide your readers also. Regards, Hyphenbird
