Description
Many thanks to James and Joe, my icompadres!

James laid down some killer fretless bass which got me fired up to sing again. Thanks to Joe, aka Yankman30 for his lyrics which I thought were a perfect fit for this!
Hope y'all like it and get outside when it rains!

Lyrics by Yankman30

Wiseman

I needed the advise of a wiseman
So I went to my local bar
I started talking in circles
He said, "Boy you know where you are?"

I don't care if eight were eighty
I couldn't care if six were nine
Wiseman won't you help me
Can I waste some of your time

Boy, I can get you going
In the right direction
I can only say this once
You better pay close attention

If you're naked in the rain
Your clothes won't get wet
If you always remember
Then you'll never forget
It may seem like forever
But it's not done yet
Don't stare at the sun
There, now you're all set

His words pierced my skull
And jammed into my brain
I think I started shaking
I'm sure I felt no pain

I left the wiseman's castle
Skipping down the road
My mind was full of knowing
My shoulders dropped the load

It's all clear
There's no more fear
I'll never lose another tear

As the rainbows melted
Their colors mixed and swirled
I couldn't keep the secret
I had to tell the world

They thought I was crazy
But I just didn't care
I climbed on top a mountain
Filled my lungs with air

If you're naked in the rain
Your clothes won't get wet
If you always remember
Then you'll never forget
It may seem like forever
But it's not done yet
Don't stare at the sun
There, now you're all set

The townsfolk started screaming
You're the great wiseman
We think you cured our ills
Well, I do all that I can

I try to make you happy
Everyone has to smile
Stack up your differences
And set fire to the pile

I'm the wiseman's student
Though he's not here today
He can no longer tell you
So please listen when I say

If you're naked in the rain
Your clothes won't get wet
If you always remember
Then you'll never forget
It may seem like forever
But it's not done yet
Don't stare at the sun
There, now you're all set

I make music for music sake. I'm not looking for fame or fortune, just having fun getting it out there. The way I work is basically all improvisational. I use Apple's Garage Band software to record and compose. A simple drum/metronome track is create... [see more]
