Claudia's Drunk Bed
@AndyGetch and I perform often at a local outdoor market. This week was his turn, and he let me borrow his really cool electric guitar to perform and record a couple of new songs. You can also faintly hear a fellow playing along on harmonica.
I had a very prolific week and a half of lyric writing when I was out of town without an instrument. This one is a title I've had in mind for a while - loosely based on past events. The fellow in the bed wasn't me, but a wayward friend.
Stumble up the porch steps and through the cabin door
Find a soft landing just before you hit the floor
Head meets a soft pillow and you're in a dreamless sleep
Morning comes you find out you've paid a price so steep
Why don't you lie back down
Oh lie back down in Claudia's drunk bed
If whiskey is the devil last night Satan was your friend
The Branch Hill crew all came down from up around the bend
Sat around the campfire til every song was sung
From mountain tales to Motown to good ol Neil Young
and then you fell into Claudia's drunk bed
All alone in a single bed and better off that way
She's got a man in Texas and he'll make it back some day
She’s such a dear friend still you wonder about what could have been
But that ship sailed long ago and it ain't coming back again
So you lie back down on Claudia's drunk bed
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
