Description
2nd of the 24 songs I have written. Simple fluff that started as something different. I could have done a better job on it but as I've said before "I'm lazy" and if it seems just "OK" I'll pop it up there. Hope y' like it!!

Using pointless picks of course.

Lyrics
Oh no it just can't be so
Though it was written Long long ago
Pain Oh such pain Sinkin' low

Oh no it just can't be so
Can life go on Sweet Life we know
Pain Oh such pain Sinkin' low

inst

Can you hear the people in the streets runnin' wild
Will we feel the horror of the heat after awhile.

Oh no Where you gonna go
Guns on the hilltop Rain down below
Pain Oh such pain Sinkin' low

Oh it's a pity
Things that you tell me
All our great cities
Sinkin' low.

I love the tone of your voice; believable and just wonderful. The harmonica is awesome! Love your "lazy" work.

Thanks for listening and commenting. I do sound somewhat mournful on this one and I hoped it would give the proper tone. Thanks!

Hey M
I'm glad you heard the drums/guitar mesh. The main reason is because I used the drums to write the song in the first place. I just picked a beat from iDrum and went from there. Thanks!

into the back of my big wooden bar stool, closing my eyes and losing myself in the deep vibe of this song. It's great technically, but I like music to move me to another place, doesn't matter where, just move me, and this does.

Hi Neal. The bouncy backer provides a nice counterpoint for the downer lyrics. I like your vocals in this and the harmonica is a nice subtle addition. The production is top quality as usual. Thanks for the D/L. Regards, Peter.

Thank you! I wish I could say I planned it that way but I didn't. When your doing it by yourself it sometimes evolves into something you didn't plan good or bad.

your style Neal that is sooo authentic, so sincerely you, this is just pure gold to my ears, I love your voice, and your production and playing are wonderful, so glad I got to hear this, brings to mind Bonnie Raitt, and Delbert McClinton, great stuff, and I agree maybe a new genre, I love this song!

I like the guitars
Tone sounds great. Vocals are spot on. Nice mood for the theme. I know what you mean. You work on stuff a while and then it's time to let go. You can always go back and rework those tunes if you so choose. Thanks for sharing.

The guitar is strat with "Tube Screamer." I forgot I had the TS which I bought Aug 08 and thought "Gee why did I buy it if I'm not going to use it?" So I been using it lately. Thanks for the great comments.

The message of this song.. we feel it- simple and to the point. Glad you've shared this over here cause it was worthy of another listen, Neal.. A Dylanersque tale for modern times and again, the lonely harp to round it out

Anything you do....
...comes off so damned good Neal! This is a style of music that I've only recently started to enjoy over the past several years now. This was really fine--I enjoy the inflections in your voice here. You are a truly multi-talented artist! Full marks here.

Mellow jello...
No idea why jello ...sometimes you just run out of superlatives and bolt something else on....I think the vocal sound ,tone,whatever is ideal ..it sounds slightly vexed as well as mournful...just a hint of being peed off as well as sad.Great....and you should "just throw 'em together" like this again...it works.

Yowie, the first was great and so is this. Your presence on all tracks, and the ay you bring it out in the mix, is shocking, so clear. Your vocals are perfect. Nice reverse-wah-ish thang you got on the guitars, too. Details, like the harp, tuck-in so well. Thanks for the DL.

Thanks man. I can't remember how I got the guitar effect, out of phase thing goin' on one side I believe. I thought I just barely squeezed out enough harp to qualify. #:)
