After a few densely worded golf songs, the album lightens up a bit with this fun song about a golfers last wishes. In tribute to my song “Bogey Train” from my last golf album, this song is a jaunty number in E major with some harmonica solos and a rare bass solo by me. Inspired by a man I met at Four Winds Country Club in Mundelein, Illinois who now occupies a small portion of #3 green there. He also was inspiration for a segment of my song “Golf Will Always Be My Game” from my other golf album as well. Thanks for listening!
Golf Course Superintendents have a hard job. Not only do they have to keep the grass alive and looking good, they have to face down a board or committee and they have to constantly hear feedback about the slowness or fastness of the greens. Some years it doesn’t rain once and some it rains every day.
A few years ago I entertained the Carolina Superintendents association and wrote this song for them. I had my buddy, John Crowe, superintendent extrordinaire in mind when I wrote it. Since then, I polished it up a bit and recorded it for my new golf album.
This goes out to golf superintendents everywhere. I appreciate what you do!
This song is about a hippie coming back to the his parents Country Club after he has transformed into a patchouli wearing, Grateful Dead listening, Bio Diesel Bug driving counter culture-ist. The stuffy old members hate it but they can’t kick him out because he is a legacy member and wouldn’t you know it, he’s the best golfer at the club. He wins the member guest with a Rastafarian and then he does the unthinkable as he accepts the Club Championship trophy (you’ll have to listen to the end of the song to find out what). Thanks for listening!!
The second song from “Funny Golf Songs Vol. 1″. Inspired by a round of golf I played in Chattanooga where my teammate could not stay out of the woods all day long. He literally didn’t finish the first five holes because he was playing Pinnacle Pinball. Needless to say he didn’t contribute much to the money game we were involved in. I did get this song out of it however, so it was a total loss.
Here’s the first song off of my new album “Funny Golf Songs Vol. 1″. “Texas Wedge” is about the virtues of putting away that wedge and putting it from off the green. Thanks for listening and supporting independent music! Now available on iTunes, amazon, cdbaby etc.
