    Default A Seasonista Wrote This...stuff

    I thought about calling this Berni's hideaway but lots of you folks are turning out good new stuff you've written for the Seasons. I'll bet you have other stuff, too.

    Wave that flag.
    It's the songs, isn't it?

    Mind if I kick things off?

    This is only my 3rd or 4th song that I'd care for anyone to hear. I thought maybe I'd throw it out here for suggestions. I wrote and recorded a version of it yesterday and tightened it up some today. Berni wrote me an encouraging note so I thought I'd keep working on it. I also thought we might try different versions of songs for comments before they go to the general public.

    What have you gotten from the aether lately, friends?

    Well that was just AMAZING!! I love it. Great playing and singing. A good song paints a good picture and this one did for me. Very nicely written lyrics. Three kinds of sweet tea?

    Yeah, I might wanna rethink that line...
    How about "all kinds of sweet tea, this and that...."?
    Thanks for the input. Much appreciated.

    Here's one I wrote for Doug's season 108.

    This is how you help her when the muse goes missing
    You vanish so that she can go drowning in a dream again.'

    I wrote this one for Myrna's 19th Season of the Ukulele---songs about rivers. I grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho, just a couple miles from the Snake River canyon. My hometown's best known as the site of Evel Kneivel's failed attempt to jump a canyon in a "rocket bike".

    New this morning so really just an idea at the moment,
    Dig Another Hole.
    Had to use two harmonicas.


    Dig another hole
    Like a greedy mole
    Bring up what is down
    Inside out the planet’s gown

    Inject and chemically frack
    Make those gas rocks crack
    Till the water burns and bubbles
    Now shouldn’t worry about the future’s troubles

    Scrape away the worthless layers
    Shove aside the nay sayers
    Chop down the last darn tree
    Those freakin’ chemicals need to be freed

    Wring out those oil filled sands
    Modern life has big demands
    Ignore the fossil bones you find
    That’ll never happen to human kind

    Stick a hole in the ocean floor
    Suck it all out right to the core
    Gotta find those mother lodes
    Til the hollow husk implodes
