MrWHASP ORIGINAL. Lyrics by Bernie Fox.
Lots of video effects.
MrWHASP originalI have borrowed the catchy lines in the chorus from the fantastic Mr Fox ("Bernie").
My song about our home peninsula: the Sheepshead. Inspired by the poem "the Peninsula" by Sheamus Heany.
It is my first video attempt to use a green screen. Most pictures are taken Alice. The wonderful golden picture showing during the chorus is by our friend E.J. Carr. I am playing my Martin D35 tuned CGCGCE.
Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott cover
Nice bluegrassy uptempo song written by Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott. I am playing all instruments myself except for the mandolin solo (way beyond my humble mandolin skills).
I am playing my Martin Arts & Crafts and my Moon mandolin.Lyrics:
She learned how his tale continued
On the dark side of the page
How he couldn't tell the difference
Between tenderness and rage.
He locked her in the iron bed
Shaded from the light
Darning socks in silence
While her coal-black hair ran white.
Her coal-black hair ran white.
She gave him thirteen children
Six of them stillborn
It reduced her to a shadow
All happiness forlorn
She truly loved her iron man
From the depth of his iron bed
But the iron shackles smothered her
And killed the poem in her head
The poem in her head
Tim O'Brien cover
One of my first YouTube attemps, but the highest view scores.
