Heart's with you (Hillbilly Lovesong)
This is a silly song that was inspired by my good mate Phil Graham. When returned in 2002 from walking the Kokoda Trail, I mentioned to Phil (by e-mail) the mountains I had climbed and complained that I had sore knees. He sent me a reply saying: "There's a song in that. I left my kneeeeees in Poca Poca ..." I just took it from there.
If you'd like to hear this tune, you can download it here (MP3, 2.5MB) or listen to the streaming version here. This is the first recording of it - it's very basic. I played everything and sang all the vocal parts. My good mate Ian Focks helped with the recording. At some stage I'll add a lead guitar part, flesh it out and clean it up. Stay tuned for that.
Update: If you feel generous you can now buy the version of this song released on The Genre Benders' debut CD "I am laving! I am leaving!" from iTunes, or GroupieTunes, or Payplay.FM. If you have a different favourite online store, search for it there and if it's not there, let me know so I can put it there.
Heart's with you (Hillbilly lovesong).
Well the Poca Poca mountains tower above you.
Now in Talbaro the field is kinda rocky
In a bar somewhere I first laid eyes upon you
Chorus x 2
