Two New Songs!
In honor of meeting my sweet girlfriend, Miss Mollie Gates, down in the swamps of Louisiana one year ago, I’ve decided to post two songs I wrote for her while I was swooning.
The first one is about a time when she was being wrongfully persecuted. It’s from the point of view of her. It’s called Evil Girls.
The second one is quite tender. There’s some inside baseball in this song that is just between me and the lady, but this is a little love diddy called Gayle In Me. In our relationship, sometimes you can act like a real Gayle; called so after we saw two older women who were clearly best friends (in our minds for about ten years, ever since they both broke up with their husbands and now go on adventures together). We decided that both their names were Gayle.
The quality of both these songs is pretty poor. You can hear my dog flapping her ears in one. The instrument I use in Gayle In Me is a canjo — essentially a can with a stick and some string. You can make it yourself…I did and I know nothing about making instruments.
Feel free to download the songs and have them on your ipod or whatever. Hope you like ‘em. And check out the little album I made in the post below this!
