Redheaded Stepchild Soundcloud link.

I wrote the lyrics for this song a number of years ago, and they have waited all this time for some cool music to accompany them. BIAB's Xtra Styles, _BUTANE, (Category: Country) was the inspiration for the creation of the music. So much fun. Vocals are mine, lead guitar on the last verse is my son, John Buford. Everything else is 2016 BIAB.

Enjoy,
Bob

REDHEADED STEPCHILD

The doctor told your mama
On the day you were born
This ugly child is evil
All that's missin' is the horns

Your mama treats you awful
Step papa treats you worse
You got a pretty red head
But it's just an evil curse

You're a redheaded stepchild
Mean as can be
You're a redheaded stepchild
That's how you're treatin' me

I tried so hard to love you
But you never gave it back
I hired the best beauticians
To dye all your red hair black

Nobody recognized you
Not even cousin Jo
You seemed to be so happy
Till the roots began to show

You're a redheaded stepchild
Mean as can be
You're a redheaded stepchild
That's how you're treatin' me

Thanks, David. Not sure how this style got classified as COUNTRY as it's absolutely Texas blues rock ala ZZTop. Thanks for listening.
