Lick your wounds… pick yourself up…drive yourself to town in your pick up truck
Yell outloud hey it’s me again (I’m free again) I’ll be lookin for some company
I’m so available would you spend some time with me
Great tune Paul! I would place this squarely in the americana genre rather than country, which is dominated by formulaic “bro country” drivel these days. Sounds a bit like a cross between Steve Earle and Jason Isbell.
About the only thing I’d suggest tweaking is the drums. It could use some more variations and fills to break up the steady beat that drives through most of the tune.
And to my ear, the song cries out for a harmonica! Some good Steve Earle-like harp playing would really take it to the next level IMO. Know any harp players??
Hi Dave Never thought of the harmonica. I have four with me and I think this song is in G or D? I have used them for fill in many of my songs. Was trying for a song where she leaves and he realizes she wasn’t that special anyway? ha ha Drum work tonight for sure. thanks bud
Actually I think some harp fills, judiciously placed, would definitely drive home that “yeah she’s gone but I don’t give a shit!” vibe. Especially in that last verse where he’s cruising downtown to find some different action…
