Geir

Sunburnt Country.

Yes, you hit the nail on the head. South Australia. I think it's the driest state in the driest continent in the entire world.

Great upbeat song. Lots of fun. Stay cool.

Hi Geir,

Loved this song! Great job!

I notice you didn't post the lyrics... I've gotten spoiled by being able to read the words as I listen to the song. Any chance you could come back to your post and add the lyrics for the sake of anyone else who may be as spoiled as I am.

=========== update!============

Geir messaged the lyrics to me, so I decided to repost them here for the benefit of anybody who likes to read along with the song (as I do)

Quote:


DOWN ON THE LAND By Geir Børholm © APRA / AMCOS

Down on the land things ain’t working out right
the hot wind’s a blowin’ dried everything in sight
It’s not that I’m complaining or blamin’ any one
it’s just apart of living in the harsh Australian sun

Chorus
I’m living in a country a sun burnt country
where the banks have no mercy for the man on the land
I’m living in a country a sun burnt country
I’m tiered of the struggle but I do the best I can

Now I ain’t one for quitting or crying in my beer
I’d sooner fight a tiger snake than shed a single tear
It’s hard -n- hot and dirty but honey I don’t mind
as long as theirs a cold one in the fridge when I get home

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all for your wonderful comments,

Yes, It can get extremely hot over here, especially this past summer,
but one thing we do have, is a great sense of humor,
it keeps us all sane,

Please have a great and safe Easter,

Kind Regards
Geir....

This is a great toe tapping fun song.

The song said you do the best you can, well you did one fantastic job on this one.

Super mix, very nicely balanced.

Great job.

Hi there Mario,

Thank you so much for your kind words,
I had a lot of fun writing and singing this one,
we can never say that songwriting has to be boring,

we just go with the flow.

Please have a great and safe Easter,

Kind Regards
Geir....

Yep, we agree!

We enjoyed it -- particularly as folks who played bluegrass for 30 years!

J&B

BTW, Dunno if SC is responsible or not but the song as played a few minutes ago is very hot. Nearly
blew the monitors off the shelf until I pulled the gain down. smile FWIW I've had SC generate some
funky versions of my uploads and then it can change w/o notice.

Cool song!! You certainly have a lot of range. I thought your last posted sounded like U2. This one is a LOT different. But, you consistently deliver a quality product and some excellent vocals. Very well done! Take care. Greg

Hi Everyone,

Thank you so very much for all the kindness you have shown me
through your wonderful comments,
I truly do appreciate each and everyone of you,
you are all so incredibly talented and are stars in your own right,

I'm going back on the road for the next 5 weeks, so
I will be unable to post anything for a little while,

I look forward to catch up with you all when I return,
hopefully with some new music as well as some stories,

God Bless and Kind Regards
Geir...
