This song almost certainly has been written many times already, but the words poured out of me and who am I to look a gift horse in the mouth. I had grand plans for the demo, but this is what time allowed.
Bari uke D A A D, the third of the alternate tuning suite.
He was one in a million, a casualty
Of passing time where his life should be
A pastoral painting in a wooden frame
And every day was just the same
Til one day it straight made him shout
He knew he had to find an escape route
He started looking far and wide
For someone who shined from the inside
And when he found her, he just fell
And all the world he had to tell
He said "Babe I'm looking for a way out"
"Can you help me find my escape route?"
"No map no compass only the stars
And earth and heaven will be ours
If only you will come and set me free"
They laughed and they played and they had their fun
But it wasn't her in the long run
He found another woman who was bright and fine
He swung through women like vine to vine
And he never felt a minute of doubt
He had found his escape route
No map no compass no thought of cost
That's how you end up hopelessly lost
And that's the way the world comes crashing down
And his woman back home, she didn't even cry
Just a foggy mist in the back of her eye
She watched him travel on his downward track
And she knew he wasn't ever coming back
Come to think of it he always had one foot out
Always looking for that escape route
