The title of this post is a Count Basie track - seemed appropriate as I'm posting Blues lyrics again (I can't quit the Blues but I left it alone for a little while, as Robert Plant almost sang).
Not a bad week. Some business coaching, plus my Dean Explorer living up to expectations - working on a version of Steady Rolling Man with the low E string dropped to D.
This piece came from watching Steven Seagal, adding a slice of GOD TV evangelism, and stirring gently. Like all my stuff it's not entirely a literal meaning, more images with comments thrown in. The double chorus stanzas , single verse stanza format just happened, nice to have a different twist.
No Cornbread To Be Found (extract)
What’s that wail across the bayou
That low and mourning sound?
Through all of Louisiana
No cornbread to be found.
Why Jesus wail across the world
His low and mourning sound?
Through all kinds of nations
Few salvation seekers to be found.
Got my ticket in my pocket
See the salvation show.
All Glory Jesus Jesus
Ask for money, see them go.
They're trying to bring the fire down
But something aint smelling right.
Got their heads all way up way up
Too far to see the light...
