Soil (Take 2)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I originally posted this a month or so ago, but the mix was pretty bad, so I took it down, did some tinkering and, voilà, here it is again. Hopefully I fixed some of the mix issues from before.

As I said last time, this is the result of spending a warm Southern spring afternoon working in my garden listening to all the Neil Young my iPod can hold.

The tune is in no hurry to get done and will cost you seven minutes of your life, but hopefully, you won't mind.

Thanks to everyone who listened and commented when I had it up before. I hope you get a chance to check it out again.

Lyrics
Soil

©2008 Joseph Gurner

Dig up the soil
Drop in the seeds
And watch
the garden grow

Plants open upt their leaves
And turn to the sun
Roots reach deep
into the gorund


Let this garden grow
And cover this great land
Let the Earth feed her children
Every woman,
every man
Dig your hands into the soil


Dig up the soil
Fertilize the land
Spread the word
on the wind

Dig into the soil
Feel the Earth on my hands
nature flows
over me


Let this garden grow
And cover this great land
Let the Earth feed her children
Every woman,
every man
Dig your hands into the soil

Make me a home
with the earth as my ceiling
and the water and the wind
cover me

Say a prayer
to the sun and the moon
may they always watch
over me


Let this garden grow
And cover this great land
Let the Earth feed her children
Every woman,
every man
Dig your hands into the soil

NY rocks (so does JG!)
Really good arrangement Joe - the harmony sections are awesome. Good lead vox, nice mix, cool playing and I'm sure NY would enjoy the lyrical content.

Good post,
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

I love that
Neil Young grungy guitar sound, which you've captured so well on this. The vocals and harmonies are excellent. Great song - glad I clicked on the link.
