Description
Song #4 of 24 written last winter. I have not had time to work on them much. I had this one out for collab but it hasn't happened. It still could but I thought I would post my version of it. I doubt if all 24 will make the cut but I shall chip away at the bulk of them. #:)

Used idrum and EZDrummer for percuss

Lyrics
Hey don't blame me
Don't you blame me
Hey don't blame me at all
For what you done

You sit over there on your high horse
You sit on your high horse
You sit on your throne looking down on me
Don't you do it.

Aint nobody's business but my own
Mind your own business
Leave it alone.

Musical interlude

Hey look at you now
Say you don't mean it
But you know you do
But you say you don't
Why don't you just figure it out

Well you sit up on your throne
A-lookin' down on me
Your looking down on me disapproving
Leave it alone.

There's too much of the hatred
There's too much hate around here
There's too much too much too much
We never seem to get along

Aint nobody's business but my own
Mind your own business
Leave it alone.

....and that #24 is just as great as #4. Good work on this Neal--as usual. Like a lot of your songs, it's not pretentious, just direct and forward but with lots of things in it that catch and keep the attention (i.e, your vocal phrasing and accentuation, your guitar and riffs, a pulsating yet quiet rhythm bringing it up from behind). Excellent song/performance/mix--thanks once again!

Love it! Love the retro rock meets country production value. Excellent melody and lyrics. Your's is one of the most distinct (and enjoyable) voices around here!

I like it :)
Your version is just fine for me. Great performance and nice harmonica accents just make a very nice piece. Although, the tension within the lyrics the musical content is up lifting; like its time to move on and get back on track!

Thanks for sharing this piece.

Wow - this is one solid track
great presence to your vocals and nice mix backing you up. You should give those boys a raise - they're making you sound good.

I like the conversational style lyric, it rings true. The rolling bass holds it down, nice guitar riffin. Your vocals sound great as always. Nice sounding mix.

Love This!
Jibes/Neal....this music and your voice are perfect for each other! This is a beauty, and I can't understand why it didn't go anywhere as a collab piece. Anyway, how you did this particular version doesn't leave anything wanting. Love this!

First I want to comment on your vocals ... It has a lot of feel and a distinctive memorable tone to it with bits of Dylan, Petty and other influences but yet distinctively ... you. Love the guitars you got going on. Harp break is perfect for the feel of this very cool straight ahead melody. Good clear mix.
Nice tune Neal.

Great work...
I really like the feel of this, it sounds like you're... close by, sitting on the porch with a couple of friends. Good production, good composition.

Solid stuff
I love the guitar sound, vocals are well recorded too, but that tick in the drum set (hi hat I guess) is really irritating. Much too quantized. Some variety please.

Otherwise good stuff.

Late...
I made it by, strong groove, the bass is well thought out. Your jangle is unique? Well maybe not, but rare around here...lol.
