i’ve written my first song in a long time. about five years in fact. though it doesn’t have an official title yet (please email me something!). here it is:

when i was young i had good shoes
they impressed the girls while i drank booze
now the shoes are worn and the girls got wise
so i drink alone most every night

when i was young my job was fine
made lots of money and i drank lots of wine
now i’m unemployed cause my boss got wise
so i drink alone most every night

when i was young and not too bright
i went out drinking most every night
now i am older and still not wise
i’m still out drinking most every night

chords:
F7 -> C7 -> F7 -> D7
Bb -> Bb -> Bb -> G7
F7 -> C7 -> F7 -> D7
Bb -> Bb -> Bb -> C7

based on the content and the musical style (it’s sort of jazzy) i place this in my drunken lounge series, which includes drunk again for one, and feeling kinda happy (with wade racine) and a few others.

it’s a good feeling to have finished a song after such a long time! i’ve come up with music for a number of songs, and snatched of lyrics, but nothing completed. the last song was jason sucks with scott.
