Description
Here's another Cuppa Joe withe additonal help of Jiguma and Joe Brady.
Jiguma had the common sense to relace my genre bending bass stylings with something more appropriate to the tune - while also adding a tambourine track to kick this tune along.
Joe Brady took up the harmonica challenge that someone threw out in an earlier comment.
Thanks to both of you for your fine contributions. And again, thanks to brother Will for his excellent lyrics.
Now - do we have any fiddle players out there?

Lyrics
God stopped by the other day
to see how we were doin'
he closed his eyes and shook his head
at all the wrack and ruin
so I made a pot of coffee
I took his coat and hat
we sat at the kitchen table
had a little chat

He said

Being everywhere all the time
isn't very easy
the universe is awfully big
drives me kinda crazy
but I like this little planet
this one that you call earth
I like your funny stories
like the one about the virgin birth

but it gets so damn confusing
you call me by so many names
you get so high and mighty
you make outrageous claims
each group pretends to know me
my motives and my aims
you get all hot bothered
play your tragic games

He took a sip of coffee
sat back in his chair
I saw the questions on his face
the pain and worry there

Then he said

I got this business started
three billion years ago
then I kinda let it happen
to see where it would go
I had a few ideas
I sorta had a plan
but in the end I though I'd
leave it up to man

Right now I'm disappointed
by the misery I see
I think you've made some progress
but your less than you can be
and it's clear your biggest problem
is how you think of me

to make the world a better place
all you have to do
is fill your heart with peace and love
like my heart's filled for you

take your love and share it
with everyone you see
take your love and live it
that's how you honor me

He thanked me for the coffee
he headed for the door
I had a million questions
I wanted to hear more
but just as I began to speak
I realized he was gone
and all my million questions
were answered by this song

Honored
...to be a part of this collaboration. Joe, Neil, Bud, thanks for bringing the lyrics to life. Can't beat a Hohner, a Fender and Bud's rockabilly guitar. I'll keep writing if you guys'll keep playing.

Terrific lyrics
Will did a great job on this - the lyric drives this track for me. Musically, this chugs along like a little train - great guitar and bass, but lordy, that harmonica is wonderful!
I like the 'massed voices'in the 'take your love' part - works really well.

Great collab guys.

hahaha...great stuff Bud! Love the lyrics. Nice job with the vox too. Neil and Joe topped things off nicely.

He stopped by here a few months back,,,we sat down to tea and had a remarkably similar conversation...

Be well man!

It's...it's...it's like...
...it's like my wishes came TRUE...

I don't know why they came true on THIS song... I was wishing for mellotron on a bunch of other songs, and THAT never happened...

I still love the guitar sound on this... I was down at the local music store today, and one of the guys down there was demonstrating a Telecaster with some playing like this, and I really got into it...

I love hearing the harmonica on this. On my system I might like a couple more dB's of Neil's distinctive bass for full appreciation...

Take your love and live it, gents... well done...

bud said 3781 days ago (May 19th, 2007)
Thanks Ed -
I keep wishing for the Swedish bikini team to sing backup and it never seems to happen. Sorry Neil's a little low in your system - I definitely want his work heard loud and clear. I think my phones are a little bass heavy.
After a few more tunes with Will - I think I'm gonna put a collection together and go back and remix everything into a cohesive project. If and when...

wow
I just thought I would press on your pic and see what was going on.

And really am blown away by the terrific words.

Like the line:
to make the world a better place
all you have to do
is fill your heart with peace and love
like my heart's filled for you

Hey, thanks for sharing this gem!

Bud and I have found a nice groove with our brotherly collaboration. It's a good feeling to know that the lyrics hit home with so many listeners, and thanks to Bud for doing them justice musically.

tight sounds tight mix solid vocal and the arrangement!!
i wonder what i'd do only IF the lord pops into my flat.. (though i reckon that's unlikely or even impossible to happen) i could fix him a nice tea and biscuits i suppose...

love yer voice :) i somehow feel that you were singing with your eyes half closed with a faint gaze look that's really cool.. did ya? did ya???!

Can't say what I looked like singing
but I do find it interesting when some things just work without me understanding how it happened. That's kinda how it was with this one. My brother sends me lyrics and write songs for them - but I never know which lyrics I'm writing for. I just start making music and then after I have the basic tracks done I go into the lyrics file and see what feels right. As a result - things are not so lined up and it forces me to phrase things differently than I might have - which keeps me on my toes and pushes my vocals to places I wouldn't usually go.
BTW - from you - a vocal compliment is a real gift. Your voice is amazing. Thanks for stopping by.

Huzzah!
This is very cool. Everything about this mix seems better to me, the vocal is much more out front, but still blends very nicely, the bass gives everything more punch, the harp is a nice touch, too. In all, this has much more of the feel of a live track now, I think.

Great job, all y'all!

Nice adaptation of the Rockabilly style.

Sweet Jam
Bud, nice work on this one (the nod goes to all the collabs as well). It feels and sounds like an afternoon jam that somebody pushed the record button on. Good message, good music, good work.

Now I've got to go catch up on every other song you've released since I've been gone!
