Good day forumites....
It's been a while since I've finished anything after our re-location to central Kansas.
We drove back to central Kansas to visit my good friend/bass player/bandmate back in 1995. He introduced me to ‘red beer’ being tomato juice with beer. Yes…sounds like an odd combo to me also but he said it’s good for hangovers…..guess it can’t be all bad.
We’ve recently re-located here so I wrote this song about it along with appreciating life, friends, family and what we fondly refer to as ‘home’. It turned out to be good time, danceable country song which is really not my genre of experience.
It only took me 19 years to decide to record it.
I thought my lead vox was a bit too loud but my buddy didn't think so....so, I left it as is to throw against the forum wall.

Red Beers In Kansas....first song on the list:https://soundcloud.com/chulaivet1966
Into: 4 bars
Just a boy, another wild-eyed dreamer,
Lookin’ back I had it made
But every night I would think about leavin’
Now you couldn’t keep me away.
Big skies at sunrise as far as you see
Fireflies at midnight, the summertime scene
Red beers in Kansas….is all right with me
Ice the kegs, I’ll be there in the mornin’
And fire up the hick’ry coals
I’ve been around and I’ll tell you somethin’
There’s never any place like home sweet home.
Back with friends and some good home cookin’
In the middle of this USA
It’s Friday night and I’m done talkin’
The band is getting ready to play.
Lead – verse music+chorus music
Verse 2 (repeat)
