Hillbilly Christmas



Liner Notes: 

Let's kick off FAWM 50/90 and celebrate the Fourth by going full stupid.
Also, I have a guitar again.


Music and lyrics copyright 2017 Ed Smaron Music (ASCAP)

It's time again to celebrate the birthing of a nation
whose customs and traditions are the source of my frustration
It happens just like clockwork every Independence Day
When Hillbilly Christmas comes to the USA

The streets are jammed with traffic with drivers headed here
to stock up on explosives and cheap domestic beer
I'd don a human thundershirt sleep thru it if I could
When Hillbilly Christmas comes to my neighborhood

The ringing lingers in my ears as I awake at dawn
to pick up all the bottle rockets strewn across my lawn
and wish it felt more like the opening scene from "Avalon"
Another Hillbilly Christmas has finally come and gone
Another Hillbilly Christmas has finally come and gone

Hey that's a clever title, I didn't think it was going to be about the 4th of July at first. Nice simple song to start, the instrumental break was good and I think the little fills. It's an amusing tune! Good ending.

Thanks for listening! Yeah, I gave July 4 that nickname a few years ago. Glad you dig it!

Really great hook and fantastic sound - you really capture some of the crazy commercialization and kitchy celebrations across the country! Love your style and sense of humour! Kudos!

I would very much like to participate in a sing-a-long of this tune.

Haha, maybe it will become a holiday classic!
