I had a live version of this song recorded with Sue and Lynn as back up singers during a Rose River gig for my first cd but I really wanted to share this country rocker party song after Wayne (drums) and Tim (electric guitar) did an incredible job to bring it to life. Definitely is the most electric song on Bones.
She’s almost a neighbor of mine, just 2.5 hours away..
I think it’s fair to say, without the risk of sounding sexist, that the album currently playing on my stereo is one written by a female and largely intended for a female audience. It’s true that within most arenas of creativity, be it books, films, television shows or music that if you can capture the female audience, you’ve got a hit. We all remember the fuss surrounding the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ books, and ‘The Greatest Showman’, a film released quite recently, panned by critics but audiences loved it.

Take a little walk right back in time
Feel the wind cool the warm sunshine
Grab the hand of the one you love
Feel the love lookin from above
Just a branch in the family tree
They’re just folk like you & me
Sim’lar eyes, ears, hands & weight
We’re all linked to a common faith
Promenade to a dosey do
Family history we ought to know
Cowboy boots and petticoats
Dancin to the old timey notes
In a farm house out of town
Friends all meet & gather round
Once a year in mid-July
They all travel far & wide
Sing & dance and have some fun
Exactly why they always come
They all leave with memories
Branches of a family tree

Take a little walk back in time with this great country bluegrass tune about family reunions. We’re all branches in some family tree and when we look around we see similar eyes, ears, hands and weight. Enjoy the fiddle from the incredible Jessie McDonald from the Pigtown Fling Stringband, and harmonies from the Lucky Dog band. If you would like to buy the song or just read more about us go to https://luckydog.band/ Hope you enjoy this trip back to July no matter when you take a chance to watch it.

She’s got diamonds on her shoes,
she’s paid her dues
She’s slick as a cat, and that’s a fact.
Street worn, some bed sheets torn
Call her late, it’s worth the wait
The night is filled with souls like her
The devil has his cards laid out
It’s deuces wild, with Jacks better
Tonight the stakes might just be lights out
It’s just a sales trip, the Jack lets slip
Pocket full of cash, and his mind of ash
A night full of tricks, next day full of shit
He called her late, and it spelled his fate.
Back on the street, she does compete
She’s slick as a cat, and known for that
More diamonds on her shoes, she doesn’t lose
Call her late, and test your fate.

2019 I’m dedicated to finishing my 3rd CD and promoting my 2nd. So to wake up and find this great review in my inbox was blast off for the year. Here’s your link to read it.
Here’s a sad country song about a love that just fell apart when it got smelly around the place. Lonely is his fate, but he’s not really sure if he should admit it, or just have another bowl of chili and a trip the liquor store for some more Jack Daniels.
The glass is on the table
Just where you left it
Girl I’m strong and able
Could you give it a rest
Yep don’t give me started
You know I’m downhearted
The moment I farted
And you left me there
One last shot of Whiskey
Another night alone
I would tell you I’m lonely
If it would bring you home
My eyes were burning
And my stomach turning
I guess I’ll won’t learn
To control my gas
I feel like an ass
The lowest of class
I’ll plead for you back
My prettiest flower (Chorus)
Sure miss your cooking
The way you used cumin
I’m just way to human
So I’ll live by myself.
One last shot of Whiskey
Another bowl of chili
Babe it sure gets lonely
And smelly around here (Chorus)

Every year I make a few playlists of songs that I added to my iTunes library and the highlights. This year was an incredible year of additions, plus I bought or was gifted 14 new vinyl lps. All precious. First pass of memories included songs from Sofia Talvik, Caitlin Jemma, The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers, Beth WoodChicago Farmer, and Humbird who played the house concert, and Dusty Heart who will play next year. All precious friends who have written gems you should all have in your library. This year we met Vivian Leva, Hayley Sabella, Tough Old Bird, mike munson, David Nash, and The Nunnery all about town. The Whispering Tree asked for a booking at the house concert and I fell in love with a few songs of their music. Then there is Seasaw what is there not to love of those two women. We ended watching a one season wonder called Roadies and ended up with loving three renditions of old songs. Then I sat imported some vinyl including a Kate Wolf gem. 2018 also found me in a songwriting class with the marvelous Miss Tess and picked up her cd. Finally I had a life’s goal covered by my favorite stringband, Pigtown Fling String Band when they handed me a CD of two of my songs covered and recorded by them. Throw in seeing Brandi Carlile and Jackson Browne in concert at the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua, learning a NEW John Prine song, and I had a dang great music year. Attached to the note is CD cover and first 25 song mix.
Of course I highly recommend you find these musicians, buy their music and not just stream it. If you want to know more about the house concert series, here’s our Facebook link.https://www.facebook.com/BluffView/
