Liner Notes: 

Jerry here. First, I was retired from music and public performance but Jimmy, Linda, Klaus, and several others have pulled me out of retirement. True story.
About this song: Jimmy sent me these lyrics this afternoon and said to myself, "What the hell...I'm going for it".

Same as the last song I did this morning. Ableton Live, bass played on my guitar and pitched down an octave. The keys was something from sampletank. Of course I pitch corrected the vocals with melodyne...lol. Oh, and the electric guitar solo this time was done in two takes. Thanks for listening and thanks to Jimmy for the song.

Update: This song has been updated to version 2 July 27, 2019


He's Been Thinking Of The Car

He's Been Thinking Of The Car
It's doing there ok so far
He's Been Thinking Of The Car
It just has some old scars

He's walking out to it this Friday
At the end of the driveway
He is eager to get out
And go away from the house


He's been unhappy this week
Holding on to the keys
He is getting ready to leave
Cus he wants to go eat

He doesn't want to visit the kitchen
As he's doing the driving
At that new restraint place
He'll point his fork at the plate

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Hey Jerry, my friend wow and many thanks bro. You did an excellent job on your new song I like it. Your electric guitar solo sounds great.

that electric acoustic thing works well again! some lovely little fill ins here and there. plenty of metaphor flying. Sucker for that guitar solo again! good stuff! vocals are a bit REM feely.

Great classic modulations, well done in all regards.

Hi, Jerry. You did a good on this one. Song is great and the production is top notch. Guitar solo is fantastic.
Jimmy, this is another good lyrics. You really have an eye for the everyday life situations and you know how to turn them into something fascinating. I like it a lot.

Great stuff mate, really like this. Gave me a real CSNY vibe, particularly that crazy solo.
Those organ stabs make a lovely riff, and such a excellent tune. Liked the lyrics though I couldnt quite fathom out 'the restraint place' till you actually sang 'restaurant'.
Nah restraint place is better! Biggrin

Love those keys and heck that solo is far out. I'm a fan of car driving too and the this song as it is is just really pleasing. It's ordinary yet totally out of this world.
