DON'T BLOW KISSES AT THE MOON - an old time country song

                                           (C) 2013-2016 by Bill Milne

          This is a song I wrote and recorded while sick in bed. I got one foot on the floor in a boot
 to tap along. One mike that was incredibly noisy once I boosted the volume. But good song, 
tearful story. And I will produce this one, if the bridges stay up and the ocean don't rise.

              I've always liked the country classic,
              Saturday afternoons I'd drift over to the Bellmont Tavern. They always had a band playing on Saturdays. And when that song was played, I'd often have to wipe a tear from my eye, after my 4th or 5th draft.
             The lyrics are just about perfect in that song.

             So I decided to write a similar song, a song that tells a story. What came from my efforts is this one: "DON'T BLOW KISSES AT THE MOON" (C) 2013-2016 by Bill Milne.
            It's not perfect, but it's getting close. It's a tale about a little guy in black clothes and cowboy hat -  Eddie Logan. He falls in love with Sara Thompson, who is the tall blonde Honky
Tonk Queen, who works at night on a corner of Larabie Street.
           Eddie assists at funerals early mornings at the graveyard.

           The production is not so hot. I sang and recorded this song when I was sick in bed.
Sometimes the lyrics are a little hard to hear...
if so, I'll add lyrics to the video eventually.
           Hope you enjoy the song.
