Week #4 Song #4 - 2012 Song A Week Challenge

Since this challenge started, we've been joking around, saying "Only 51 more to go. Only 50 more to go...", and that gave me the idea for this song, "49 More To Go". Actually, there was only 48 more to go when I finished writing this, but it took a week for the one line to turn into a song for me.


This tune is done in a Bluegrass style. Or an old folk song style I guess. I overdubbed banjo and lead guitar on it as well.

Hope you enjoy it, and as always, please leave a comment here on the blog, or on Facebook or Twitter, to let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Tom





these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go x2

You say you got problems I'm sure you do
But i've got enough of my own

these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go



Got no money to pay the rent
11 more months to go x2

don't even have enough collateral
to get myself a pay day loan

Got no money to pay the rent
11 more months to go




the preacher says i should pray to god
he's the only who gives a damn x2

well he didn't say that exactly
but that's how interpreted the man

the preacher says i should pray to god
he's the only who gives a damn




but i think i'll just go rob a bank
seems like the smartest thing to do x2

Get myself a bag of cash
maybe take a caribbean cruise

but i think i'll just go rob a bank
seems like the smartest thing to do



60/40 split if you drive the car
to make our get away x2

And if you got a buddy's place where we can stay
maybe lay low for a few days

60/40 split if you drive the car
to make our get away



Turned out I didn't have the nerve
to go through with it after all x2

Life can be hard , it can be real tough
But I'm in it for the long haul

Turned out I didn't have the nerve
to go through with it after all




these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go x2

You say you got problems I'm sure you do
But i've got enough of my own

these last 3 weeks been hard as hell
49 more to go

  2. Record names that are searching for craftsmen will look in many spots for them. They may look at sites that will permit individuals to post recordings of their gifts. They may sit tight for somebody to send a capable individual their way before they will significantly consider marking with them. Each record mark will do things another way. http://punjabimp3club.com/videos/lakdi-ki-kaathi-mp3-song-download/
