Autumn Breeze (Florida Style)
I saw the prompt about halfway through the Sunday skirmish, so I wrote the lyrics then and recorded today.
This one sounds a lot like a cover song I perform, and it also sounds like other 12-bar blues shuffles - ones I've written and ones I've heard. But it's fun to play, and it's another song. One away from 50 now!
Stepped outside, thought I felt the first hint of fall
By the time I put on my shoes wasn’t there at all
September is a bitch down here in the Southeast
But it’s past August and heading to October at least
Oh it sure is swampy steamy terrain
I choose to be here so I don’t complain
But an autumn breeze round here is a hurricane
I got November on my mind
But I’ll take whatever breeze right now I can find
Autumn breeze will be here soon enough
I am Florida Man and I am weathered and tough
