Nope, no info, but right off the top of my head I would say that the last one is just another name for WYCBTMA:)
Or maybe just some ideas that later led to WYCBTMA.

I don't know *LOL*

Ask Garth;)

I would assume these are songs written and shopped around to other artists. I have heard Kim Williams sing Slow Down but never realized it was co-written by Garth.

I remember GB saying that the Marshall Tucker Band was going to (or had already) cut "Walk outside the lines"

Interesting. There is a song "You Had to Be There" by Peter Frampton and Wayne Kirkpatrick sung by Stillwater in Almost Famous. Gordon Kennedy, Bryan's brother, may also have a hand in that. He and Wayne write together alot, such as for Chris Gaines. Peter also performs this song on one of his recent DVD concerts. I LOVE that song! If Garth has a big connection to it's writing I wouldn't be surprised. Besides that Garth and Chris Gaines are all over the movie. I'm hoping to pick up today the new expanded 'bootleg' director's edition of Almost Famous with more of Stillwater's music, footage, and comments.

Gary Allen recorded From Where I'm Sitting. I think it was his "Used Heart" record. Or something like that. I'm not 100% sure of the name of the record.

12-27-2001, 12:59 PM
yes, that's actually quite right... Gary Allan DOES sing "From Where I'm Sitting" and it IS on his "Used heart For Sale" CD... It is an AWESOME song...

"When God Made You" was actually on (you ready for this) The Moffatts CD... 'member them??? hehehehe... it's a very cool song... it's a lot like NSync's song "God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You"... "When God made you.... he took a little extra time" (those are lyrics from Garth's version... ;))

The rest of the songs, I'd be interested in finding out who has them on their albums (if anyone)... I'd be interested in buying the CD for the song, actually... I have The Moffatts and Gary's CD already that have the two songs I already mentioned... but there were quite a few on that list that I don't know anything about.

Anyway... if anyone has more info, please post... Thanks!

Thanks a bunch.. You all are really garth fans! lol.. The one im most interested about is 'crazy ol moon'... that just SOUNDS cool.. i could only imagine how it goes.. thanx:)

By the way in case anyone was wondering I got the songs off the Library Of Congress copyright informational pages. It shows everything Garth Brooks (or anyone in the US) has sent to be copywritten... its pretty neat. Tells the dates of creation and publication. (did yall know that he sent "one night a day" to be copywritten on a cassete in 1989?!) its kewl stuff...

The address is www.loc.gov if you want to check it out.

Some interesting stuff. I'd love to hear some of those songs. Maybe some of them are songs Garth has recorded himself that may get released in the future. I do believe Capital will release what they have at some point, so we'll see.


12-28-2001, 12:34 PM
I did hear a song called I Guess You Had To Be There...Lorrie Morgan sang it and it was all "i guess you had to be there, you really had to be there" not sure if it's the same song but thought I'd share that just in case :-)

I looked under Troyal Garth Brooks and found some interesting stuff going back to the early eighties.

"Crazy Ol Moon" was in a theatre show the last I remember...GB and gang wrote it for the show, which also included 3 or 4 more tunes, which were never released

Crackers, you've got my interest. What might they be?

12-29-2001, 01:24 AM
Fuzz, I wish I could do a cut and paste. You should go to the www.loc.gov website and check it out. If I'm reading it correctly, there are some songs that Garth wrote the words and music to from 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, etc. There are twelve songs listed under Troyal Garth Brooks.......most of them I have never heard of.

Go to the website, click on copyright, then click on Copyright Office Records, then Search Copyright Records, then Books, Music, etc., then check Search by author, then type in Troyal Garth Brooks.

Or, maybe someone can make a link to go directly there.

12-29-2001, 09:57 PM
Well Dale... I went to the website to try to get a direct link for ya... but it keeps telling me to try again later...


So I guess I'll have to try again later... hehehe...

Check out this site:


Search for Garth Brooks. Garth's an ASCAP member. There's a bunch of songs here I've never heard of. Some of the ones already mentioned too.

I'm new here by the way.

This is what Dan Strimer, one of the co-writers, posted on PG's Facebook page:

Wanted to let you know that "Crazy Ole Moon" which I co-wrote with my wife Lena Arice Lucas and Garth has been recorded twice. First by Farmers Daughter In Canada and most recently by Patti Page on her last album for Curb Records.

Maybe start a new thread instead of going back to one that's 14 years old? Just sayin'

11-24-2015, 07:16 PM
Why when bumming it works just as well? #JustSaying LOL
