Description
So I was sitting alone in my backyard at the round table - a small medicinal dose of cabernet in my glass. And I was musing quietly about all the buzz about the predicted impending end of the era/destruction/next oreo cookie whatever. "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father" floated into my thoughts. Just then a butterfly flitted over my head and shuttlewise,flew out of sight.

"Its a butterfly year", I thought.....

Maureen threw down on acoustic guitar. Rock steady as usual.
Billy dropped over to punch out the lead on his beat up old Yamaha Nylon.
(Some of you met Billy at Dallas Jam 2012 in March.

I cant think of anyone I would rather have sing on my last and final song than Anne. Thanks Anne! .

Oh ya, even Scofugate got in on this one with some splashes and crashes that he sent me of his cymbal work. Thanks Scott

Lyrics
It's a butterfly Year
and there nothing to fear
go where ya go
know what ya know
hear what you hear

Its a butterfly day
and there's not much to say
do what ya do
believe what is true
have a butterfly day

Its a butterfly year
and there nothing more clear
its a butterfly day
there's no one more dear, my dear

The next Oreo cookie hahaha. THAT should be the new tag for all future doomsday prophecies. I'm not a believer, but I know about the passage you refer to. Doesn't everybody in the English-speaking world + know about that? Yes, so what's with all the hubbub, Bub? Anne rocks -- umm --- countries. Nice resolved feeling about this one.

Every nation and every tribe have heard that.... but this isn't really an 'end is near' kind of tune- although I suppose the premise is as such. Anne is so eloquent - glad to have heard her in my headphones.

Great!
Nice approach to the doom and gloom theories; ignore 'em! Nifty song, lovely guitar on it and striking backing vocals. A good job by all concerned I think.

I typically ignore things like this - mountains and molehills kind of thing..... Like, I ignored that last recession and plan on doing it again. hehe Thanks for the nod to the collaborators. I know they appreciate that - I am so glad to have worked with them.

bye bye now
this seemed a light and happy groove for waving good-bye to It All.
even though we didn't have time (or heat) to fight as much with each other on this collab, it was good to be reminded....8))) i think your arrangement worked perfectly, and it was sweet to have Maureen and Billy and Scott making Real Music through it all. you sang this beautifully, Andy - and the mix is nitless to my nit-finding ear. now kindly pass me a glass of that medicine, wouldja, and let's sing it one more time......A

Thanks so much for your involvement in this tune.... Wish we had more time to battle it out, but as I recall you at first toyed with me and refused to do the project and then after an appropriate time of pouting on my part- you pulled thru. I bet you do this to all the guys... you big tease. thanks for catching that Dminor thing. My West Texas oriented ears dont always convince me that I should be more educated. There is a glass-o-cab awaiting you.... my dear.

don't live very long and so, they don't do much damage but, oh my, they leave a memory of brief beautiful wings flitting by. Bye, butterfly. Thanks, peeps.

I love watching the butterflies flit by on their way to Mexico. Or just to the next colourful plant. This music has that careless spirit.

It feels a bit like The Loving Spoonful in places.

learned that it takes butterflies four generations to make it there... so the ones you and I might see- it may be their grandchilluns that are the ones hanging out in those trees in massive and procreating ways. Nod to Lovings Spoonfuls - yes and thanks - theyve been a big influence on me...

Great song ... I've always been a sucker for a good country/bluegrass tune though this I think falls into bluegrass territory .. The words are great ... sung well with lovely harmonies ... happy doomsday

Fabulous
Like swinging on the front porch in the afternoon breeze, this sweeps over and makes everything just fine. You can't even think about doom with this kind of music about. A fine fine song you guys.

Bravo!

Oreo Cookies
Haha! I've seen the pictures... Yes, we have them in the UK, but we call the biscuits.

Wonderful lighthearted approach to Doomsday. Very Texan, it seems to me, if I may say so: "Oh well. The world is about to end. Let's have a drink and play some music while we watch the impending doom moving in from the desert."

Beautifully song, whatever.
