APRIL 2019 - ODC - A Place
« on: March 28, 2019, 02:14:41 PM »
This months challenge is to write and record about a place, but also to tell us about the place when you post it in the thread.

It can be a real or imagined place, but tell us why you chose to write about it.

So if it's Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, Mulholland Drive or Margate - send in your songs.

Closing Date midnight wherever you are 28th April 2019.

Collabs, instrumentals, acapellas etc all welcome. No other restrictions.  Go for it!

Ugh. Not happy with the city of Winnipeg right now. That arena is pretty rowdy and I think it might have gotten to my Blues.....I’m working on finishing up my terrible song about Tennessee. Hopefully have it up by tomorrow evening.

Here we go......



And the background.....

Loyal Oak VFW - Smurf April 2019 TTM ODC

I was blessed to make my living from music for over 3 decades, and this VFW was a center of the music
for a long time. It could seat 235 people, and for 16-17 years we had close to 100 every Sunday, with
probably 30 regular jammers. 2 songs and yer out most nights.....I got a lot of jobs playing there, and
made some good friends.  (-!)

The problem with the club was that it was for the older crowed, and as they started dying off so did the
patrons. Our last night there we played to maybe 25 folks, with 12 coming with us....it was a sad end for
sure.  :'(

The guitarist Dean, Bassist Chuck, and myself started a Thursday Night Jam at an super small VFW
which lasted about 3 1/2 years, then they closed down because folks had their hand in the till....shame.  :(


Anyway, here is my entry, it has been awhile since I had one for sure. Enjoy!  8)

Well, this started as a suggestion by papaG but I didn't stay on task. :(   

These lyrics ended up being about the little country bar that my brother goes to near his house, the Broadway Bar.  Keep in mind, it hasn't actually been called that in decades but that's still what he calls it, no matter what the new owners name it.  It's my way to poke a little fun at him, as brothers do.

This simple version was just a way to share lyrics so yes, I know the verse tune is "Lucille" by Kenny Rogers.  I sang it at an open mic this week with a completely different tune.  Go figure...
