Pony Songs – Bo

Bo is a rescue pony, rescued from a pharmaceutical test laboratory, and was the inspiration for this song. Unfortunately he was a bit camera shy for the video and so has Crumble here standing in for him.

V = Am C Dsus2 Am
C = Am Am Am C

Dreaming of a blue sky
Inside gets me down

Blinded by the neon lights
I can barely see the ground

Here you come again
Lead me by the hand

Take me now, I’m waiting
For the promised land

Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where they can’t find you

Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where they can’t find you

Dreaming of the blue skies
And those golden plains

I know I’m never going to leave this place
Come stay with me a while

Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where they can’t find you

Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
Where they can’t find you

Where you gonna run to?
Where they can’t find you

Pony Songs – Bo

‘Bo’ is a new song written this week, although the chorus was written a few weeks ago and had been lacking any decent verses to go around it. Even so, I’m not sure these verses go with this chorus either.

For a bit of fun I’ve run this through GarageBand to add a drum and percussion track on these two versions:

Strummed version:

Finger picked version:

Chamberlain Avenue

Something is afoot at the top of Chamberlain Avenue, a rash of laminated notices appeared suddenly on all the lock-up garages.

Eviction. Eviction to complement the planning application notice.

Goodbye garages, hello houses. Not everyone received the news well though.

So, is this good news or bad news?

Good news for the social housing shortage, bad news for the trees and grass.

Good-bye trees.

Who puts their car in a lock-up garage these days anyway?

 

Learning Frailing Banjo Week 22

Week 22 of my learning the craft of playing Frailing Banjo by watching Patrick Costello videos on YouTube. This week it’s more John Hardy and Boil ’em Cabbage Down, a quick rendition of You Are My Sunshine, the Banjo version of my song ‘Millie’ and an early version of the guitar version of ‘Millie’ too all crammed into 12 minutes.
