The Accursed Hat

My take on Jofus's cowboy epic. Although I think a song like this demands additional production that I am not able to provide. By all means, feel free to download it, add whip cracking and horse hooves and banshee moans, or swirling guitars, or whatever else might epic this bad boy up.

Completists may wish to glance at the original lyrics over this-a-way.

There again, they may not.

It's a great lyric (kudos to Jofus) and you did a great job with it! And as far as extra production, sure, the horse hooves and whips (thinking Morricone, are we?) might at first thought appear appropriate, but I have to say your spare, stripped down presentation is very appropriate and powerful. I think any sound effecty stuff would merely detract from that power.

And the aay-aaay-aay is the perfect touch.
