Howdy folks, its been quite a while!
anyway I hope you're all keeping well and here's my effort at a start for this week...
The title came from something I came up with as an earlier assignment but never got a chance to start. I have some music to go along with it but no way to record it for now (hopefully next week).Death Row Cookin' [get it while you're still warm]-Ben Rowe
I see that boy clutchin' a photograph
I bet he's thinkin' 'bout the time that'll pass
with one less person in the frame
I know in town there's a home gallery
of pictures of young Suzie Marie
23 she'll always be
'cause of this boy in front of meCHORUS
But I'm just a death row cook so I'll send him on his way.
Get him fed, give him a cigarette and say 'I hope you enjoyed the stay'
I cook the steak to be ate with a spoon
this boy ain't gettin' my knife anytime soon
he's a sculptor
and i'm not trying to be his muse
To my surprise he offers up a smile
says he might not be stoppin' by for a while
he's got business
out of town and a speech to writeBRIDGE
But Suzie Marie never got a last meal
she just got a hard taste of this cold boys steel
so i'm tempted to say 'boy enjoy dessert,
It's a needle in the arm with a poisonous squirt'CHORUS
But I'm just a death row cook so i'll send him on his way
I'll get him fed give him a cigarette and say 'I hope you enjoyed the stay'
