I love the vibe and the rapid fire lyric that's all over the place but blends into something that kind of makes sense. I'd like to be able to hear the lyric better in places when the full band comes in. That might just be me - I often seem to have a problem making out lyrics.

Just rap lines , Yes it wordy Gavin , It took a few takes, to get chorus right . I think I spent a week looking for current rap lines that work from hip -hop songs. The producer said , what do these lines mean ? I'm out of the loop on current hip -hop songs.

I used Alabama cuz of you Tony , lol. Lets talk shop , Clay Mills (hit writer) , said to put hook in verses when hook is only on bottom of chorus
So that's what I did, it works, Not much to the song , just a country boy singing in bars , But I use HIP -HOP lines

Like all these books , I have a hard time grasping the concepts . I must have 10 of them . that would be a killer line for a song . A Southern Soul with a Left Coast stroll .
When I read Tony Robbins book 20 years , I got so excited... I left a stove on and almost burned the house down.
I remember being 40 years old . homeless, with Jesus tapes in on hand a guitar in the other , Everything has been upwards since then , over all

That's done , You should use them for a country song Tony, since I'm moving in 6 days to Clear Lake Calif . I have to find a new studio . I'll be out in the sticks , I'll be happy to get out of the bay area and traffic .I'm hoping to do more fishing then music , Since my deck sits on the lake . Well see how that goes. Clear Lake is about like Alabama on cost of living. well kinda , I doubt any town in Calif , beats Alabama on costs.

I'm going to re-cut this in my key of G# minor. Use the same gospel BGVS . Lose Woody Guthrie line , Kids have never heard of him . Lose the Clapton line , He wishes that bad would stop happening , The publisher is probably right , I doubt Bob cares about Clapton

Hey EN,
I first heard this one over in the lyric forum and you had a different singer and maybe different guitar player too. I really liked that version. The voicing was brash boastful destructive youth....and I thought...that's an arrogant kid that will probably be dead by the time he is 30....but he is having fun now.

The way you sing it is different. Like wise old sage poet dylanesque....good, but I prefer the brash bombast (woops sorry Gavin) of the other.

Hey Elvis

I’m a big fan of yours for a lot of reasons and the #1 reason...
You know what the hell you’re doing
For some reason I saw this song as being like a jigsaw puzzle....you dump all the pieces on the table and then piece by piece connect them all together until the final picture emerges...and that’s because there are so many pieces to your songs

IMHO, the rap feel is what carries it along....it ain’t perfect but you deliver it your way...and it’s effective and no small feat, that’s because you know how to interpret, lock it in and deliver the right melody

Just like many of your other songs, what happens behind the vocals and in the empty spaces is what also makes this one great

I, of course, don’t know the process you go through to end up with a song you post here but it always tells me “the guy knows what in the hell he’s doing”

Steve

Oh, and by the way....love the lyric...the Hank and Drake connection is ooohh so good...but then isn't that what song writing is all about...it's not what you say, but how you say it

Some days I know what I'm doing .(Depends who you ask lol ) I studied hip-hop songs and their phrases . mix them in with country phrases . Worked the melody and had ( I'm having memory loss ) A Nashville guy track it out . lets name him "Better Then Me " He was backed up on that site that makes songs for loved ones from Nashville guys , Pretty sweet wife's birthdays , things on that nature , Time I got it back I forgot about it 2 months later . I should be practicing, But he's the one that told me when I got on my (soap box) about using real drummers . Some producer had a real drummer do a part for a song , in turn use a machine to copy it. Well the drummer got paid , so i guess it don't matter . A lot of tricks they use .
Thanks man


So Joe Besos will send me catfish rigs with me out in the bonnies , Man he's greedy, Well efficient . lets stay positive
