Words be simple, Words be quick, Words resemble walking sticks, Plant them, They will grow, Watch them waver so, I'll always be a word man better than a bird man, I can fly high but I stay in the same sky, For only I Know whats beyond.

Jesse Lacey (Brand New) or Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) for me. Both have influenced my songwriting immensely and both are amazing.

My favorite is Tom Waits. Definitely the wittiest songwriter.

Jimi Hendrix is probably the most underrated song writer I know of. Why is this? Well...everyone focuses on him as the greatest guitar player of all time, which is arguably true. But lets say he was a 'great' guitar player, his lyrics would be focused on much more so as amazing, extraordinary, beautiful. He was just getting better too. The man was a true artist.

John Lennon and/or Bob Dylan are the best though.
