The Guy who Fed the Minks

Description
I tend to not talk much about my songs, but this one needs a bit of explanation perhaps. It's a personal song on one hand, about me being fifteen working at a mink farm feeding the minks, and later in life, when I wanted my first computer (and they were expensive back then), I got a job at Nuclear Power Plant cleaning Radioactivity, and hence bought my first computer, a Mac II Classic and moved on with my life as an inspiring author. Secondly, in more general terms, it's also a song about how everything we ever do will have an impact on everything else for the rest of our lives, and even beyond...

Lyrics
The Guy who Fed the Minks

A saw a girl in a country girl in a hat, I don't know where she's at
I heard her on the phone, she cried so gently and so soft
I forgot about her swirls, and moved on with my life
as it turned out to be, I found Jesus to be a girl

the guy whom fed the minks, he was sure to sink
deep into a hole, where none really thinks
cleaning radioactivity, may not be vice
if you want to move on with your life

I had a country girl and a stove, I threw it away for none
I gambled with my life for a few seconds of heavenly sway
That's the price I got to pay, to never feel whole
welcome to my church of the lonely and the poor

the guy whom fed the minks, he was sure to sink
deep into a hole, where none really thinks
cleaning radioactivity, may not be vice
if you want to move on with your life

Paths
A life so guided
by the twists and turns
of the trails laid out before us
takes us to places of wonder
so completely individual
and unknowable
as one footstep on the path
is completely unaware of the next

Unexpected
in one way but not in another.

Thought provoking lyrics and inimitable delivery.

You are never one to take the obvious path.

Cheers

church of the lonely and the poor
Fab lyric: I gambled with my life for a few seconds of heavenly sway/ That's the price I got to pay, to never feel whole/ welcome to my church of the lonely and the poor.

I dig the authentic around the fire sound. My ear kind of wanted a bridge, but, hey, I dig it just the way it is too.

My grandfather raised minks in a rural setting in Wisconsin back in the 1920s. Mink pups have always had a special place in my heart.
