about

Don't know why I kept the vocal take on this--it's dreadfully pitchy (at least at the front). It's a deceptively diffcult song to sing. The guitars are really dense. I used an '73 SG Custom (the only guitar I really wish I had back) and a Danelectro Amp-in-Case. I can't remember if I ever did this song live; I probably did a few times, but it wasn't a staple. I especially like the rockin' G-Em-Am-C part.

lyrics

do you feel good /do you feel better now
wish I could/wish I could remember how
plodding through another day/plotting some kind of means to escape

now I get mileage/out of things you cannot use
empty stomach/drinking on nothing to choose
all it takes is grain, water and time/next thing i know you're on my mind

i only know one thing worth knowing
and that was when the bomb would blow

i can see your hands working/and i'm taking it on the chin roll me over, roll me under/roll the credits at the end

then you gave me one to grow on/yeah you gave me one to go
and i only knew one thing worth knowing/
and that's how it feels when the bomb blows

i can see your hands working/and i'm taking it on the chin roll me over, roll me under/roll the credits at the end

Drummist, guitarist, bassist, singist and write-ist. I'm a fan of many genres; the stuff I write is basically earnest, somber, even wistful on occasion. Guitar-driven, melodic power-pop with harmonies and a focus on guitar tones. I think there's a rootsy, Okie element to it too.
