Walking Through A Graveyard (1-15-2013)


Well life it ain't no daisy/ if fact It's downright crazy/ but walking out on you was not my aim
It sure can be demanding/ but my fate I had a hand in/ when I lay down would you bury me in my shame

I walked out of my front door/ ain't coming back here no more/ I couldn't pay the balance on the rent
With one bag on my shoulder/ goodbye was all I told her/ She said good luck is surely heaven sent

I found myself walking through a graveyard/ I found myself walking through a graveyard
I found myself walking through a graveyard/ Searching for my own headstone

I started on a Monday/ drank myself to Sunday/ then headed off to nowhere you would know
I stumbled past a street light/ got into a neat fight/ there's misery where ever may I roam

I found myself walking through a graveyard/ I found myself walking through a graveyard
I found myself walking through a graveyard/ Searching for my own headstone

I stood above a shovel/ and you were crying double/ not two feet from a gnarly hole
I could hear it call me/ don't know how it knew me/ I hung around just like I was a ghost

I found myself walking through a graveyard/ I found myself walking through a graveyard
I found myself walking through a graveyard/ Searching for my own headstone

That was fantastic! Who would have thought that a bluegrass song about a graveyard would fly!

The mix is perfect, your vocal was very strong, and but lyrics were what put it over the top for me! WOW! I loved that " Searching for my own headstone" was super as was that last verse! Again WOW!

Super job on this one!

I'm addicted to that Boom Chicka style.

Great lyrics and love the gravel tone vocal.
Good stuff.
Rob

Clever and entertaining tune!! Interesting juxtaposition of a happy, springy melody with a bitterly sarcastic lyric. Works perfectly! Thanks for posting. Take care. Greg

Hi Lawrence,

I like those sarcastic lyrics and of course your voice.
The style is not my genre but it's nicely mixed.
Fine harmonies.
An enjoyable listen.

Thank you so much. I really don't know what inspired that line but I wrote the lines pretty much in the order that it is.

Thanks for listening. I tried different vocal approaches and this one felt the best fit.

Thank you. I started the composition by randomly putting a capo at the 5th fret and chording a C at this tempo, and the lyrics cooperated.

Hi Lawrence,

Great stuff. Even though the song has finished playing, images galore are still swirling around inside my head. Terrific lyrics! Maybe it's because of the recent holiday season, but this composition reminded me of Dickens's "Christmas Carol" and the ghosts of Christmas.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

All the best,
Noel

Lawrence,

Nice!

For a minute there, I thought I was listening to a Newman/Prine co-write. I have no compliments greater than that.

Good instrumentation. Excellent mix. Super vocal.

Thank you very much for your kind words. I don't know what inspired me to write a ghost story but I suppose it wrote itself really.

"I started on a Monday/ drank myself to Sunday" Great line. Lawrence, I hate to repeat myself, but your voice just draws the listener in. Nothing out of place. Interesting lyrics and a great choice of real tracks make this a super listen. Tom
