I Don’t Know How It Can Be this Hot and Not Rain

September 18, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m sitting in this motel room
with a notebook and a pen,
writing angry notes
to God and Angelina.
I don’t know where I can send them off
so I guess I’ll tear them up
and the whiskey contains all the proof I need.

It’s heading south tonight on a northbound train.
And I don’t know how it can be this hot and not rain.

I’m singing songs about the working man
on a chinese guitar.
They’re all gospel songs
without the halleluiah.
Emerson wrote for us to trust ourselves
but the farther I get from home
the less my heart can vibrate to that iron string.

It’s heading south tonight on a northbound train.
And I don’t know how it can be this hot and not rain.

 

Thought this song I wrote fit well with today’s dVerse prompt. Okay, I’m cheating a bit as I wrote it a month or two ago.

I also recorded a demo of it. If you’re interested, comment and I’ll send you an .mp3 and/or a pdf with the chords. It’s steel-string guitar finger-picky.

    angry notes are just a poem away from a good song, nice one
