    "shorts" category as this one measured at just under 60 seconds. I am still a bit rusty and should have waited another day to record, but I am still working on an original and want to spend my time on that one instead. I will also be attending an astronomy club meeting tomorrow and that will make my day a busy one.

    Ukulele player since November 2013 and started playing toy piano in July of 2019. Lover of electric ukulele!

    My last one for the week, another Guy Clark song. Thanks for turning me onto his music, would have never known otherwise. Just learned this one today, pretty easy. I play in in C, F, G, Am chord shapes, but I dropped my low-G tenor down to B for my voice. Plugged into my little Vox Pathfinder amp, with reverb and tremolo, recorded into cellphone.

    I like the lyrics "she was standin' on the gone side of leavin'", and also "she had a way of her own, like prisoners have a way with a file". So sad, just the day after Valentines!

    An original inspired by a photo I recently came across.



    That old chimney must've been here a long time
    I bet it kept some poor folks safe and warm
    Mortar mixed just right, each stone laid with care
    Their fire burning bright in the winter storm
    In the middle of nowhere, warm the winter storm

    Why'd they come here, I guess they had their reasons
    Where the prickly pear and the cholla dot the ground
    I reckon they built that chimney as first thing
    And then they built their house all around
    They built that chimney then built their house around

    Nothin' left here now but the seasons
    Rollin' by long forgotten reasons
    Maybe they left or maybe died
    The house fell apart but Lord they tried
    And left behind this lonely cairn of stones

    That old chimney must've been standing here for a long long time
    Cold and dark where the western coyotes moan
    It'll probably still be standing when I'm long gone
    A long forgotten lonely cairn of stones
    The people all long forgotten by the stones
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    One of the choices for Season of the Ukulele 417 is to play a song from the album "Together at the Bluebird Café," which opens with this song by Guy Clark. I'm adding my variation to the cover already provided this season by the Cloverdale Kid, which you should also check out. Apologies to traditionalists -- I added a verse with some modern modes of transportation, and a chorus "homage" to the late great Guy Clark.
