about

This song has been written for a while but for whatever reason i never got around to recording it. It's a fun, fast, summery song that is a lot of fun to play. The banjo was insanely hard to record, partly because it was hard to get the mic to pick it up well and partly because I'm not that great at banjo. The guitar count off that starts it off and the tempo change towards the end are homages to my favorite CCR song, Lookin' Out My Backdoor. The guitar solo is one I actually wrote for a cover of Sweet Home Alabama but I liked it so much I had to put it in one of my own songs. You can also hear my dog barking at the start. I thought it sounded cool so i left it in.

lyrics

Lets build a rocketship by noon
We can fly it to the moon
I'll bend down on one knee
And pick a rock out for you
Put it on a silver band
Slip it on your left hand
Say until the end of time, girl
I wanna be your man

You got your head in the clouds
And I'm climbing in trees
So i can get a better look at you
We're taking pictures like we were fifteen
So we can show them what we've been up to and
Just because we're going up
Don't mean we gotta like grown ups do
So take my hand and come with me
We'll run away into the great big blue

Let's build a submarine
And go to the bottom of the sea
Get out and swim
Through a orange coral reef
Then we'll come back up
Grab ourselves some cups
Head to the clouds
And fill them on up

You got your head in the clouds
And I'm climbing in trees
So i can get a better look at you
We're taking pictures like we were fifteen
So we can show them what we've been up to and
Just because we're going up
Don't mean we gotta like grown ups do
So take my hand and come with me
We'll run away into the great big blue

We can be scuba diving
Astronaut-ing
Indiana Jones's
But screw coast to coast
Girl, we're going globe to globe
And after we explore the earth
And the whole universe
We can settle down together
Till the day we need a hearse
