I'm thinking bout my friend in the graveyard
i'm thinkin of what he must look like down there
maybe more than a fossil probably still got his hair

we slid off the road in his car one night
its was back in the spring of 2003
my momma said better him than me

well we used to be in love the same girl
well pretty peggy lee she chose him over me
now shes dressed in black under the willow trees

well goddamn i'm glad i'm not in the graveyard
with my hands full of holes my heart full of rot
6 feet up and i'm all but forgot

well mama never said nothin bout an afterlife no
i believe its all right mama its just as well
cause if there aint no heaven then there aint no hell

mama's layin on her bed with a sickly cough
she said i'm sorry for all the stupid things i said
i wish your father was around when you were a kid

well goddamn i'm glad i'm not in the graveyard
where starcrossed lovers meet suicidally
where my children one day will be beside me

well i'm gonna ask peggy lee to be my bride
with her morphine eyes and her soft white breasts
i wanna see what lies underneath her black dress

me and peggy lee gonna get married on the fourth of july
we'll sing out our souls and spill champagne
i'll take her home and she'll take my name

peggy whispered to me on our big brass bed
sayin oh my darlin lets not get too attached
in a couple of years we're all lying on our backs

goddamn i'm glad i'm not in the graveyard
i know i shouldnt worry bout most things still
most things wont happen but I know this will

Nothing like raw tracks..I love it...very clever. Interesting guitar sound. Great lyrics...sounds like the 1930's depression...

Blues romp
An exuberant performance. Stand up to the microphone and belt it out!

Equally jaunty are the lyrics .. which go off in unexpected places. I like that in a song. What at first seems like it's going to be a blues meditation on death .. ends up being a romp through life.
Check out my latest song called Toe Jam

Nice live vibe, Jason. Made me think of open mic night. It would go down well. Thanks, Peter
