Had a homie on the last goat farm who asked me to write her a song about bouncing around the country taking care of goats and green things, asked me to call it "Hard Out Here for a Nomad" but that is not the name of this song, the name of this song is "The Wandering Life Is A Difficult One, But It Is Not Without Its Pleasures; For Example, Today I Saw A Cardinal."

A song I wrote back in 1996. Its lyrics draw from images from the Mexican Day of the Dead, which I've always fancied.

A cover of one of my favorite songs
I played this for a friend and he said, "That'd be a nice song to hear while floating down a river."
Unusual music, make with a ukulele, acoustic guitar, and bass, in one shot. Using a MagicStomp as a (very rudimentary) phrase sampler, and Audacity to record. Enjoy
