Keep it simple stupid!! just working the trade.. using as many organic instruments no loops, I did use the Jam packs grand piano and upright bass though.. Kazoo, slide guitar, two acoustics and many many vocal tracks later I end up with a blue folk tune.... bluegrass folk/new folk rock style....

If these boots could talk
there be all kinds of trouble down on me
if these boots could talk
I know you`d be a walkin out on me

well I`ve seen the carolinas
when I was in my prime
these boots they helped me then to make my pay
and though I think it funny just how I`ve made my money, I betting high that you`d just walk away

I rode through Highway 66
from Chicago down to Texas
these boots I always kept them on my feet
And though the ride was lots of fun, Im sure that you would turn and run, if the girl I took and you would ever meet

Ive work the bar just like a star
thinking someday I`d go far, I played in jester someone elses court. I`ve made mistakes and dems da breaks but I`ve done what ever a man can take
Ive even hunted women as a sport..

So now its to end this rhyme
I hope your all just feelin fine
an take a lesson for your self today
we gotta learn to crawl before we walk
these boots of mine they`ll never talk
but they`v always help me find my way...

Good song!
Liked this one too, although totally different from your ambient tune. I'm impressed by your attempts at different genres. This is very well produced - especially the bass which is very clear. I like the incidental sounds in the background, gives it a lot of interest. No criticism I'm afraid! Good one.

Thanx Again Smokeybacon
my only gripe is the guitar.. I may rerecord the guitar lead and turn up the acoustic thumb picking finger snap that starts the piece.. I got carried away with the upright bass and it washed out allot of the tecnical parts within.. WILL WE EVER BE HAPPY WITH OUR FINISHED PRODUCTS>> or will they all be a work in progress!!.. learn something every day..

FOR TODAY? Im about to google how to make a birch bark flute... ahem ahem Jlbowler...

Nice tune
I really like the mix and the slight piano plinking background. Excellent vocal performance too - and the rest is pretty top notch. No real crits I'm afraid - I enjoyed it. Glad I stopped by.

Hi there
Just listened to this with a smile on my face because I suppose a lot of us can go along with those great lyrics LOL. Love how you kept the backing so simple yet so effective..... great job in all departments on this 'cheeky' little number, regards M

Thanx everyone for the kind words
this was a fun number to make.. the whole theme behind the words have been playing out for a while now, then when the music popped up, it hit me like a tone of bricks!! I then wrote the whole thing in a few hrs.. me shooting the gun was just as spontainious, I threw it in there while singing.. I HOPE that most women understand I was speaking about the whole dating game and NOT hunting HUNTING!... one cannot be too careful with being CORRECT on certain issues.. this one ? IT WAS ALL JUST HAVING FUN on a windy rainy day...thanx Ya`ll

Could be a country song
if it weren't for the kazoo.

Great song and a subtle arrangement. Very nicely done altogether.

Good One!

Thank you Monkaton and Diesel
this is still on my to do list and Im not going to drop it until its complete.. (the guitar lead need a reboot).. and theres a few timing issues that Im sure I can fix without committing a slaughter.. I`ll probably resing it again and make it less throaty...
