It's been a while since I posted some real down home country twang so here's a fun little ditty I wrote a couple of days before Christmas. Here's the story behind the song if you're interested. giggle....

Hope you get a kick out of it. All RTs - RD Nashville Shuffle. Bass 540. Guitars 944,947,1707. Piano 2022. Organ 1560.

I Saw Elvis At The Quick Stop

It started out a routine run
to grab a case cause we was down to none
on a Saturday in the middle of June
I parked on the side in an empty spot
Trying to hurry it was getting hot
Didn't notice he was walking out when I was walking in
'til I almost ran right smack into him
looking up I grinned
looking up I grinned

I saw Elvis at the Quik stop
Like a deer in the headlights my jaw dropped
My knees almost hit the floor
He was holding that door and smiled hello
Oh I thought I might be dead
Still don't know what I said
But I was singing all shook up
on the drive back home

Jet black hair tossled from the wind
His teeth so white the store lights dimmed
So tall and tan in that light blue tee
All I could do was hem and haw
Fighting a powerful urge to run for my car
And follow him down the road but I ain't no freak
It's amazing how good looking one man could be
It happened to me
it happened to me

Now you don't have to believe it's true
It's not facebooked, tweeted, instagramed
or a video on youtube

repeat chorus and tag out.

Good fun listen Josie!

I love this line, "to grab a case cause we was down to none".

Hey Charlie,

Thank you.

I get so emotionally intense with songs that every once in a while I gotta let go and write one for fun to clear my head. I've been an E fan since I was three dancing to my teenage sister's records so I had a good time with this one.

Josie

UH HUH HUH ,*wiggles hips" cool

I enjoyed that a lot, the words painted a wonderful picture.
And a good story behind the idea for the song.

Kirsty McCall did a song years back about a guy who works down the chip shop who swears he's Elvis and YOUR song is up there with it, well maybe just a smidge or two above laugh

Production everything is BRILLIANT.

Well done

Alyn

ps added a funny video of my mate Bert "Taff" Williams, The Melyn Elvis, in the youtube forum.
The Melyn is a district of my home town, Neath, and I reckon he should be called Melvis. grin

Great song of yours tho'

Hi Josie,

Loved the lyrics, v funny smile Vocals/harmonies etc all perfect too.

I also thought the country feel was a good match for the song and the breaks in instrumentation at various locations were nicely placed.

Congrats!

P.S. I am deaf in my left ear at the moment after getting a cold so I expect it will sound even better once I can hear it in stereo, lol.

Josie, I am going to the kitchen for a peanut butter and banana sandwich. What a great idea and a very nice job bringing it together. Your vocals of late are really sounding super. I really enjoyed this fun, very entertaining and very listenable track. Good stuff! Tom

I love this song! Everyone here knows how big of an Elvis fan I am, this is perfect. I remember when he first passed away, almost everyday someone was claiming to have seen him somewhere. I thought I had one of these moments on one of my visits to Graceland. As I was walking up the drive to the house, there was an Elvis imitator sitting on the steps; and from a distance he looked just like Elvis. It was one of those moments when you could imagine Elvis himself sitting there. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Josie.

Anything which can raise a smile has to be a good thing and this made me laugh out loud.

Very clever writing, fully supported by a great backing and a brilliant performance.

Loved it.
