School Program at Dubach, Louisiana
I had a wonderful time with the students of Dubach High School last Friday. I was welcomed warmly by the very devoted and talented staff. I’ll have some photos and more thoughts of the program in a future post.
University Park Barnes & Noble in Fort Worth
I did some storytelling and some children’s music at this store Saturday morning. Then I signed books the rest of the afternoon. I had a grand time and met so many great people.
Mickey Newbury Chords and Lyrics: The Thirty-Third of August
I’m still enjoying the Winter Winds CD by Mickey Newbury. Here is another song on his CD that I intend to learn and use in my Americana show.
Lord today there’s no salvation
The band’s packed up and gone
Left me standing with my penny in my hand,
There’s a big crowd at the station
Where the blind man sings his songs
He can see what I can’t understand.
It’s the thirty-third of August
And I’m finally touchin’ down
Eight days from Sunday
Lord and I’m Saturday bound.
Once I stumbled through the darkness
I tumbled to my knees
A thousand voices screamin’ through my brain
Woke up in a squad car
Busted down for vagrancy
Outside my cell as sure as hell
It looks like rain.
Now I’ve put my dangerous feelings
Under lock and chain
Hide my violent nature with a smile
Though the demons danced and sang their songs
Within my fevered brain
Not all my God-like thoughts
Lord are defiled.
Verse chords: D, G, D A, D, G, D, A
