Lyrics and Guitar Chords "Friends" by Danny Hauger and Greg Kettelhake


E    C#m        A    B

Where were you the night we watched all those movies

We all looked side to side, tried to figure out where you were

Might have been somewhere else

Maybe we were second best.


Remember shooting bottle caps into the ceiling

Remember playing guitar at school at 7 AM

I’d try to impress

All the girls who were walking by.


A    B    C#m    E   

All the time you’ve known me,

I’d strike out 1,000 times,

At least we still can count on friends.





We have bills and you’ve got twins

Its hard for us to get together and just shoot the breeze but,

Even though we’re older

We can always count on friends.


Even though we’re older

We can always count on friends.

Even though we’re older

We can always count on friends.


The video of the studio session is live on YouTube!

The Greeks observed the goddess Rhea on Mother's Day, adapted by the Romans as well. We have traces of European celebrations back to the 1600's. In the United States, Mother's Day started because of Anna Jarvis in West Virginia in 1908. Listen to the History of Mother's Day and a call for a kind gesture for the motherly figures of our lives in today's edition of the Hauger History Podcast. Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Fun fact: Americans spend $18-20 billion per year on gifts, cards, and chocolates!

Mr. Hauger’s Five Keys to Winning Debate


You LOSE if

You WIN if

  1. You don’t listen
  2. You get angry
  3. You get ugly
  4. You get off track
  5. You’re unorganized
  1. You listen AND cite faults
  2. You keep your cool
  3. You stay respectful
  4. You stay focused
  5. You sign-post


Move from left (losing) to right (winning) by following the 5 keys!


  1. Listening critically (not just waiting to speak) will give you fuel to respond effectively.
  2. Staying composed displays your logical strength better than the volume of your voice.
  3. Respectful people are viewed favorably by judges and the audience. Stay cool!
  4. When you’re focused, you won’t be distracted by shiny distractions. Stay on topic.
  5. Point out and order the opposition’s arguments, then take them down point by point.

Loving this new song that I recorded just last night, about what life might be like if we lived a little more like we dream. I was immediately taken with the chord progression during practice and ran away with the recording process. I really enjoyed the rhythm and music of the progressions and guitar blends. I hope you will enjoy the song and share it with people who like new indie music, and remember, its free!Download Careless in My Sleep (right click and save)“Careless in My Sleep” Music and Lyrics by Danny Hauger [Eb - Ab]

[Verse 1]

A               E
Parties make me nervous,
A              E
Money makes me sad,
A            E
Glory has no purpose,
A                     E
All the violence makes me mad.

C#m                A
I’m careless in my sleep,
E                    B
Worry free - and I”m forgiven.
C#m                A
I’m wholesome when I dream,
I’m anything - until I wake up.

[Verse 2]
A               E
I want to feel like I”m at home,
A               E
I want to crawl into my bed.
A               E
How did I end up here?
A               E
How’s this going to end?

C#m                A
I’m careless in my sleep,
E                      B
What is meant for me? And will I reach out
C#m                A
To the world I seek?
Its all here for me, until I wake up.

Hello and happy mid month of May everybody! It's been flying by in the literal and physical sense. In the physical sense I guess I would need to be talking about birds for it to be literally flying by. Then again I did have a bird flying to my window so that is a story that's interesting that I didn't even mention the podcast. But then again I've arty stop the microphones let me just keep it in the text only portion. You can think of it like a free podcast bonus from Danny Hauger Studios.

On today's podcast, and please don't forget to subscribe, I talked about our upcoming trip to Toronto Canada. I look so forward to our first trip to Ontario. I'm so thrilled that we will be going to the Blue Jays game, taking a bus tour to see Niagara Falls, taking in the gorgeous and spectacular views from CN Tower, and enjoying the city of Toronto overall. I can hardly wait to share our trip with you on our upcoming podcast to help encourage more people to travel abroad and see how beautiful the world is, as well as how great the United States is, but to see more and appreciate cultures and how much we all have in common.

Today on the podcast we recap the Golden State Warriors lost to the Memphis grizzlies on Saturday night, which brings them down two to one games in the series. I think Steph Curry will prove to be a viable most valuable player, and have a huge bounce back when the Warriors win the series in six games. You can hear more my thoughts by clicking the play button below.

Don't forget also that you can check out my new album, "if I grow up", it is currently for sale on iTunes and Amazon. You can also check out all of my back albums on Google play. You can stream the album for free on Spotify is well.

Have a great week everyone!

The Green Bay Packers sent themselves home today with a comeback win on the hands of the Seattle Seahawks. Saturday they did not have a clue what would happen in their big game against the very tough to beat at home Seahawks, and Sunday brought a Russell Wilson who could not complete a pass until it mattered most.

I also learned from this game to be ready, or life will hit you in the face, just like Green Bay tight end Brandon Bostick, sorry Brandon, but man, you’ll remember that play forever I bet.

Another memorable moment was when I interviewed Scott Johnson of the gin Blossoms on Titan Radio in 2009. Enjoy this interview talking about one of my favorite bands that continues to tour and make wonderful music today.

Better luck next year Packer fans.

My new Danny Hauger album will be out this March! We open this podcast with a short listen in to, “Once and Never Again”.

Have a great week everybody!

"Rise from What You Know" is one of my oldest and sadly most neglected songs. I rarely play it live and even more rarely have tried to create a new tech recording of the tune so Is at in today and it was the firsts song I strummed so I flicked the microphone on and I hope you enjoy it. It will definitely be featured on my 2014 album to come.

Congrats to the close to home Tigers of the Pacific, our home town heroes, who will be making their first trip to the NCAA March Madness tournament since 2006. They are hitting their stride with 7 straight wins to finish the regular season as they enter the field of 64. I want to congratulate personally Bob Thomason's team that are honoring what is likely the coach's final season at Pacific. As a 2000-2003 team assistant, I saw Thomason's discipline, respect, and leadership first-hand, and I celebrate the chance for the Tigers to once again represent Stockton, California in the nationally televised mega tournament. This is Thomason's 25th season with Pacific.

This team has had some big wins this year, most notably Long Beach State and Xavier, but also struggled at times amidst the Big West competition. Pacific is a hot shooting team from distance, and will need it to overcome their all-time tournament record, 4-9. Good luck UOP!

I will be looking on with great interest as the orange and black take the court this year in March Madness.

Audio today? How about a fun segment from the Sports Lodge, now on in the afternoons on AM 830, KLAA in Southern California. New website coming soon - until then follow me on Twitter @DannyHauger

You'll find yourself more engaged in enlightened thinking and sound distinguished - if nothing else, learn some words with no alterior motives and preserve the English language. By the way: fun fact: the word "set" has the most definitions in the dictionary. Go figure - and go listen - to this Classic Sports Lodge moment, based on word choice, you read me?
