Beware of the Hawk
Monty: This was a one hour collab at FAWMSTOCK 2019 thanks to Mike Skliar. I added the dobro, bass and chop fiddle parts using Band-in-a-Box/Realtracks.
Mike: this was great fun, and it was great to collab with Monty, who came up with all the good ideas for this one--done live and in person at Fawmstock (in Delaware this past weekend)
We cut this live on the porch, just a baby taylor travel guitar & vocal (me), and Monty on harmonica and additional vocals.
Monty then went back and added dobro and bass, etc. He sent me a mix and I did a tiny bit of tweaking and here it is!
yeah, this is an 'almost murder ballad' I guess, done to the prompt "Beware of the Hawk"
I’m standing in a junkyard
if I don’t play my cards right
I might be dead
Like a Hitchcock Movie come to life
I begin to feel a chill
somethings coming at me
coming in for the kill
They give names to all the wise guys
the ones that never talk
The one that scares me most of all
They call the hawk
I was under a lamp post
Way back in 69
Put my hands in my pockets
I forgot that was the sign
I messed up the plans
Screwed up the robbery
and now forever after
the hawk is after me
