That was great! Keep this up and one day you could afford one of those color cameras. I'm going back to see what else you've got on youtube. Thanks.

Thanks a lot guys! I have been working a lot with the drum/banjulele combo. I am scheduled to play on The River Valley Arts Show on WBBJ Jackson on OCt. 29th and I hope to have a few songs ready by then. Expect more videos (in color) soon! Sidenote: Those are Slingerland drums. How cool would it be if I had a nice Slingerland banjo uke too. All Slingerland set....

Post lyrics next time I think, but fun. This was shot on security camera, wasn't it? Reminds me of cops. LIKE.

I have added a few mics to the arrangement and the vocals and banjulele are a lot clearer. I'll post more soon. Thanks!

Broke A$$ in the Ghetto
by Johnny Foodstamp

you got your ring finger wisdom
and my dope inside your head
screamin listen to me now but just before they're dead
with your handkerchief mischief and an addicted prescription
that taught us all about eating the drugs in the streets
so light me up

well, i'm a broke ass in the ghetto
and it won't get me too far
i'm a broke ass in the ghetto
won't give me no library card


you got your crackheads barkin
and my dogs inside your yard
cashin' in your change and
gettin' funny glances at the bar
eatin' all your roommates food, hey bobby could I use your phone?
smokin' all your homies weed, hey greg, could I use your phone?

well, i'm a broke ass in the ghetto
won't you please pay me to sing
i'm a broke ass in the ghetto
and i need a new everything
