Description
After posting a bunch of polished studio-recorded tracks, I'm back to basics-- DIY GB demos. Did this one fast; mixed it through earbuds. It's a jug band/country sorta thang.

Lyrics-wise, this is a song about craving meat! My wife is pretty much a vegetarian. But while I embrace the diet for health reasons, I still hanker after flesh.

Lyrics
Good ‘N Greasy

Wanna sink my teeth in somethin’ good ‘n greasy
A bone-in cut that’ll fry up easy
Don’t want nothing that’s good for me honey
Smother it in cheese til it’s good and runny

Savory, spicy, and just a little sweet
Pour some sauce on that hunk of meat
We’ll stick a fork in it and call it done
Serve it up on paper on a crusty bun

Been working days, been working nights
Workin’ up a Texas-sized appetite
Let’s skip the starter, no idle chatter
Just wanna tuck in on a jumbo platter

While I’m at it sugar, I oughta mention
I got a thirst that could use some quenchin’
Let’s toast the cook, hey let’s drown our sorrows
It’s back to beans and rice tomorrow

Move a little closer, baby to the fire
Stoke the coals turn the flame up higher
Wearing that apron you’re sure fine lookin’
Come on in my kitchen and we’ll get cookin’

The breast and the wing, the leg and the thigh
When I eat ‘em with my fingers, I’m a happy guy
The dark and the white, the shank and the round
Throw it in the pot and we’ll cook it down

Good 'n' Greasy
Very enjoyable - I'm smiling at the lyrics. Love the progression in the song. A bit of fun that would be worth polishing should you have some time on your hands! Thanks for sharing it.

Good 'N Greasy
Such an entertaining listen! Great lyrics! I feel your pain. I try to limit my beef and pork intake. So I eat a lot of fish. I just can't go veggie! But that pound of bacon in the fridge is sure looking good right now!

A very good recording. Clear musical mix! I really like that mandolin solo.

It has that...
...John Whitehead lope...

Having done a number of years as a vegetarian a while, I'm totally there with the yearning for the carnivorous lifestyle. 'Craving' might be the better word...

Nice instrumental decorations, and well crafted lyrics...

Did you ever stumble over jonx's tune 'Fried Food'? You may enjoy it...it's short...

food songs
there are a bunch of classics. my current favorite has to be lyle lovett's 'keep it in your pantry'. tell the mrs. that humans are carnivores. don't mess with the natural order. this is great. and it may be DIY but I don't know how a studio would make it sound much better (maybe more expensive...)

How fitting!! I'm one of those who tries and fails at vegetarianism constantly. After a couple days of success. Today I bought me a giant ribeye from the Albertson's meat dept. and now I am in a fat-coma on my cpu listening to MJ's music. Back on the bandwagon tomorrow!!!

Good tune, as usual....

nice pickin'
I really love the blend of acoustic string sounds. Are you playing a Dobro on it? Even if you cooked it up fast, it's pretty darn tasty.

ha...i can see this playing over footage of open heart surgery, intercut with shots of clinically obese people struggling with their existences.....as part of a scary public information movie about how not to eat the wrong things.

great performance.

Late for Dinner
Sorry to show up so late for dinner. I may have missed the eats, but not this tasty tune. Very nicely done in all aspects of playing and production.

The lyrics remind me of the kind of songs that Mark Knopfler writes.

I've been singing and playing since the age of fourteen when my brother Paul was working his way through the Beatle book and needed someone to play with. From Paul I learned to fingerpick, play barre chords, and to sing the melody while he sang harmo... [see more]
