lyrics

pretty girl from Vermont
you're the only one I want
when I'm dead and put in my place
won't you lay me down in your lovely state

the scenery is the prettiest when it's passing
light seems to shine the brightest in the darkness flashing
but it must be true love cause I feel so sad
I won't never see here again

pretty girl from Vermont
you're the only one I want
when I'm dead and my soul does fly
won't you lay me down in your countryside

her and her friend they we're shooting pool
I got on up off of my barstool
I said hello and she said hi
I felt a warm fuzzy feeling all deep inside

her hair was yellow but her roots we're brown
she was visiting from out of town
she taught art at a high school
I bet all the students there thought she was so cool

we talked for five minutes, maybe ten
then she went to go watch the band
as she sat by the stage and drooled
I sauntered back to my barstool

pretty girl from Vermont
you're the only one I want
when I'm dead and put in my place
lay me down in the green mountain state

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
