Song about a ship dog, sort of.

UPDATE
------------

Here's the lyrics to the song, I might do this for all my submissions if folks would like that.

in January it gets aweful dark.
you can't see your soul without a spark.
For those lost at sea
At night they'd be
walking lonesome in the park.

Let me tell a story bout my dad.
He's the only one I ever had.
He reached for the sky
he said he had to try
Shame it turned out so bad.

break

As I said daddy would dream
of things impossible it would seem
He'd pace on the dock
and sulk on the rock
conjuring adventures at sea.

you should know that daddy couldn't swim
a secret shared by only me, you, and him.
As he growed up
all the boys tried their luck
with no one on shore but him.

break

well you can't pin a dreamer to the ground.
but momma always tied him round.
with declarations of shame.
he made a bane of our name.
by drinking our hard earned money down.

On that jutting peak he told me
he's finally venture where he long to be
he stowed up the gang
and hid among the chain
a brave one on a perilous sea.

interlude

cutting through dark crest and tendril
making every dream real
and standing on the bow
daddy finally felt how
he'd always yearned he'd feel

well sea ships are a wonderful things
but they can't handle all that the sea brings
in a wild gail
the sea swallows the ship hull and sail
daddy felt no suffering

chorus

oh cruel fate
oh cruel fate
the sea ain't your friend
it'll get you in the end
oh cruel fate

in January it gets aweful dark.
you can't see your soul without a spark.
For those lost at sea
At night they'd be
walking lonesome in the park.

momma went to the park every night
she searched among the trees until light
though she acted bold
she succumbed to the cold
leaving me all alone, it ain't right

oh cruel fate
oh cruel fate
the dark ain't your friend
it'll get you in the end
oh cruel fate

While in the park a shadow approached me
he chatted with me by a tree
more than any other
don't blame your mother
we're mingling with the heroes of the sea!

you just ain't nothing less you chase something you love
you just ain't nothing less you chase something you love
I lost my dad and my mother
but I'll tell you brother
you just ain't nothing less you chase something you loves

I love the sound of the uke and your voice goes together well with the pace and theme of the song while the lyrics are creative and actually inspired me to write out a poem. This song is one of those songs that if I heard it in person being played on the street I would stop and listen and give money.


UNDERNATION responds:

thanks for the props. I'd like to read the poem!

Alright. This was the best of your songs that I saw posted. Excellent. And thank's for posting the lyrics because with my ears some of the vocals were still difficult to understand. Well, call it a NOLA bias but I haven't chosen a single favorite for audio yet. Thanks for real music generated by a real person with some talent and not just a computer. :)


UNDERNATION responds:

thanks buddy!
