Wouldn't That Be Fine

Breaking out ye olde stick dulcimer again for this one, plus the trusty stompbox. Live in beautiful downtown Shibuya, February 10, 2011. Video here.

i felt the train roll by
you know it shook my bed
that's when I realized I shouldn't a'been sleeping
i shoulda been riding instead
was a girl i used to know
had a little house on the georgia line
if that train could take me back there now
well wouldn't that be fine

i'm a dollar short of five
that means there's four bucks in my pocket
you see that banjo on the wall
i'm gonna have to hock it
i used to play it all round town
the folks would buy me beer and wine
if i had just had me a bottle now
well wouldn't that be fine

there's bad luck winds a-blowing
seem to come from all directions
they've blown me way off course
i've missed all my connections
all my plans and big ideas
well they all died on the vine
if i could only get my bearings
now wouldn't that be fine

to get by in this world you need some luck
yes sir you surely do
they say some guys have all the luck
i guess that's probably true
but i never asked for no one else's
cause i only want what's mine
if lady luck would smile on me
now wouldn't that be fine

Ah, this is very mellow and soulful, man, I dig it. That's a great place to shoot a vid too. Very very cool!
