heres something quick and dirty (please excuse the poor quality off everything as im a newbie at this video thing) This songs about the ghost of a mandolin out to get me

I found your head
laying in the gutter
the other night when I was walkin home
I searched around
for your body
but your body never would be found

now theres something
after me
the headless mandolins takin its revenge
it blew my amp
and busted all my strings
and now I cant play no more

I threw the head
down in the creek
please sir let me go in peace
well oh shit
its still after me
and now I cant sleep no more

Cornbred, that was good and somebody told me the brainless thing is endemic here.   Thing is, I don't know what endemic is.

Comment by Uncle John on October 28, 2013 at 7:05am
