Pickle My Beans
During 50/90 and FAWM, thoughts come to me in the form of blues lyrics. So as I cut up some homegrown beans for pickling, this one popped into my head.
I was going to record it a cappella. But then I was picking the guitar and came upon a sped-up version of a riff from a Dylan song (know which one?), and the lyrics fit.
Gonna pickle my beans ‘cause beans are what I got
So they start out sweet and finish hot
Gonna pickle my beans so I can eat ‘em later
I can grow a bean but I can’t grow a tomater
Gonna pickle my beans, they’re purple and they’re long
Make your taste buds sing a torch song
First you gotta let ‘em grow
As long as your wrist to your elbow
Then step out into the sunshine
Pick those beans right off the vine
Gonna pickle my beans, that’s what I’m gonna do
Later on, I’ll share them with you
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
