    Default original

    A lot of production went into this, and I decided against trying to video myself doing anything--too difficult. So I made a lyric video instead.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    The Spin Doctors played Farm Aid in 1994 (I believe the other song I did this week was from that year, too. Weird.) This was the fifth song on their set. There are a lot of mistakes here, but it was the best take, after I went back and watched them all after my arm fell off. It's not great, but it was a lot of fun.

    I did this one kind of quickly tonight because I wanted to get in a song about forest fires, which we had big problems with when I was growing up. The 8N tractor makes another appearance. Commentary after the song.



    Everyone on the school bus that day
    Could see the smoke from miles away
    That's when I heard the bus driver say
    There's a fire at Longhorn

    Walking home was always rough
    But that day it was especially tough
    Knowing I could never get there fast enough
    To stop that fire at Longhorn

    We ain't go no VFD
    Daddy said "Son, it's just you and me
    That fire's coming fast and it's eating those trees"
    Fire at Longhorn

    Well neighbors came from all over the place
    Sweat streaks on their smoke stained faces
    With wet tow sacks and shovels they raced
    To fight that fire at Longhorn

    We fought it all day and into the night
    Wherever we could see the fire's light
    Daddy said, "If we plow a break we might
    Just stop that fire at Longhorn"

    We ain't go no VFD
    We formed a line against those trees
    Shoveling dirt wherever we could see
    That fire at Longhorn

    We started up the old 8N
    Hitched up the plow and headed in
    To a place where the trees were a little more thin
    To stop that fire at Longhorn

    That old tractor didn't have no headlights
    Daddy plowed throught the trees in the darkest night
    While I sat on the front end with a big flashlight
    To stop that fire at Longhorn

    We didn't have no VFD
    But folks came from all over as far as you could see
    With shovels and rakes all among the trees
    We stopped that fire at Longhorn
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    It took me a little over 6 hours to get here. Ive played with the kids, got all my duty instructions for the next 6 days, ate dinner, visited with my daughter and listened to you all. A great day if you ask me. Im worn out and ready for bed now.

    Ill see you tomorrow

    Well here is my first song for the season. Poorly played on my Caramel CP-100 Pocket uke. The little bugger is hard to play and it only is staying in tune for about 15 minutes with the new strings. I know you all will forgive my inability to deal with this little instrument and my singing. My thanks for your acceptance.
