Having been cooped up during the pandemic for so long brought this old chestnut to mind.


Clouds so swift
Rain won't lift
Gate won't close 'cuz the railing's froze
Get your mind off wintertime
'Cuz you ain't goin' nowhere

Ooh whee ride me high
Tomorrow's the day my bride's gonna come
Oh whoa are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair

I don't care how many letters they sent
The mornin' come -- the mornin' went
Pick up your money and pull up your tent
'Cuz you ain't goin' nowhere


Buy me a flute and a gun that shoots
Tailgates and substitutes
Strap yourself to a tree with roots
"Cuz you ain't goin' nowhere


released January 10, 2022
