Description
This song, if nothing else is a good example of how the subconscious procrastinates. I have a pile of recent songs I need to arrange and record--but this song showed up out of nowhere yesterday (Saturday) and I found myself recording it last night. So I'm not sure exactly what it's about--I have yet even to write out the final lyrics--but I hope you enjoy it.

I also feel like it needs a fiddle somewhere, per the lyrics, but that's another story.

Nice tune, Michael! Chorus has a great hook. Like the story in verses. I could hear fiddle and mandolin, but I love the backing you've already
layed down. Wanna sing along on that chorus. You've got yerself an earworm, buddy. Kudos.

NICE!!
Very good folk/country content. Love the idea of the organs with guitars. Would probably be better with less reverb on the vocals. Great voice and excellent lyrics.

Billy...
A very good song. I like the understated piano and background vocals with the more forceful strummed guitar. The tune and words fit together just right. The story's unusual so altogether this is one to listen to a lot!
Many thanks indeed for sharing something so hot off the press!

Clean, bright sound that builds through the song. Strong and expressive vocal. I like the narrative of the story and the imagery you use.
