Liner Notes: 

Jerry here: This is something Jimmy and I came up with a year or two ago and has been sitting on my music stand. I never did more than rough draft for this and I don't believe it has ever been released. I can tell I wrote some of the lyrics so we both worked on the lyrics. Usually I'll write four lines then Jimmy will write four lines. Usually.

Production notes: No problems and the whole process was fun and easy. It still takes 3 to 4 hours...can't fix that.


Power Outage

The storm blew the power lines down
Darken every side of this town
Left the town in the dark
Tornado took out that trailer park


They already said
Tomorrow’s power is dead
The already said
Eight hours to dread
No power, there’s gonna be a power outage
No power, there’s gonna be a power outage

After six or seven hours
The lights finally came back
The milk was nearly sour
Weatherman said the sky is black


Everybody misses the Wi-Fi being around
They can’t get a connection tonight
With the damn flood on the ground
Nobody can get an email on their sites


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

Great song you two! I had to evacuate my house this year due to flooding. It was hard and it made me think just how important the things we take for granted are

This is a good one boys. The groove is solid enough to weather any storm and the guitar solo makes full use of all available power. Well done.
