Several friends were asking me to do this and thought I’d share it here for laughs. ‘’
One of my closes and oldest musical friends was complaining to me about working so much: “work, work, work, that’s all I do! You might as ell just call me Lunchbox Joe.” Well, me, being a usually fairly compassionate person ( can’t watch Little House on the Priry with a tear falling somewhere ) let my mouth take over and say “That’s a great song title! I’m gonna write that down”
It sat around for a year or two in a list of ideas for song/tune titles (looks like a 3yr old’s scribble sheet on a legal pad …all different colors over time, things written along the edges…haha)
One day while messing with the banjo tune Black Diamond And that title popped into my head…chorus came 'bout as fast as I could write…I wanted to do a “story song” in What I imagined would be something that Charley Waller might sing. … then the rest got done within over the rest of that day or two…I wrote this in '93.
I’m trying to hold metre with the rhythm but haha…not happening …been too long…and I was working hard at relaxing,… as if that makes any sense
