A Country Song

Spunk relaxing in on the deck rail this afternoon.

Two-Stepping To Nowhere

Music: Ron Blood & Joel Lewis. Arrangement: Joel Lewis. Rhythm Guitar: Joel Lewis. 2nd Guitar: Timothy Price. Bass: Timothy Price. Drums: Mark Simma.

Spunk: “NOOooooo! Not that stupid country song!!!”

Two-Stepping To Nowhere is a collaboration between Ron Blood, Joel Lewis, Mark Simma, and I. Ron sent Joel tracks with a bass line and Mark Simma’s drum track. Joel wanted to make a country song, so he slowed it down, which messed up the bass line, so he took out the bass. He recorded the rhythm tracks with the drum tracks playing a semi-hollow body Tele, if I remember correctly, and sent the song to Ron and me. I listened to the song, lyrics popped into my head, I wrote them down, went into the studio, added a vocal track, and sent the song with vocals back to Joel and Ron a couple of hours after Joel had sent the rhythm guitar and drum tracks. Later I added the twangy 2nd guitar playing my Black Tele, and a new bass line. It’s a really silly song, as you can see by Spunk’s reaction above. But it’s fun and funny. The lyrics are at the bottom of the post if you want to follow along.

Spunk taking over my lunch back before I got it packed this morning.

Spunk: “And YOU thing cat herding is really tough!”

Spunk: “Oh Gwedolyn! Did you really need to break wind?”

Silver planning his attack for after I turn out the lights.

A little before sunset tonight.

I barfed on my cat today
He was pissed. It’s always the other way
I dragged myself out of bed
Stepped on cats trying to get them all fed
The life of a cat herder is really tough
No one ever seems to get enough

Chorus
It’s like trying to glide
Across the dance floor
When all you do is a slide
Two-Steppin’ to nowhere

I got myself made up and dandy
Going to go dancing and find some candy
A lovely chica got me out on the floor
She looked real nice she knew the score
But it was just my dumb luck
I drove my car, I had left my viagra in the pickup truck

Chorus
It’s like trying to glide
Across the dance floor
When all you do is a slide
Two-Steppin’ to nowhere

Out in the truck to do some shoppin’
The County station was down,
I had to listen to a dude named Chopin
It’s hard on a fella and his imaging
When the country chicas could hear
The wussy music he was listening to

Chorus
It’s like trying to glide
Across the dance floor
When all you do is a slide
Two-Steppin’ to nowhere

I barfed on my cat today
He was pissed. It’s always the other way
I dragged myself out of bed
Stepped on cats trying to get them all fed
The life of a cat herder is really tough
No one ever seems
No one ever seems
No one ever seems to get enough

  1. Hahaha… Love the reaction of Spunk! Do you think we should call him a ‘music connoisseur’?

  2. My Saturday just got really happy and radiant now! What a great collaboration!!! Loved it! Spunk, see what you’re inspiring?!!!!! Lyrics are the extra smiles and then you add that pre sunset photo…. Bliss!!!!!

    • Oh! No classical for the Spunk. Spunker is a Punker. He loves Sid Vicious. Thanks, picpholio.

  3. It is good to hear you collaborating with friends, Tim! I also listened to your interview on Teat, Toast and Trivia this morning. I enjoyed it very much. Well done on both your part and Rebecca’s. By the way, I had forgotten I asked you that telescope question. 🙂

  4. OMG, another creative and hilarious song, Tim! Great collaboration, a little tricky building all the parts separately, but you all did a great job! Wonderful photos of your “herd” too! 😊

  5. This is pretty wild, I love it. We have always had cats. I still don’t know how you manage to collaborate over the internet and create music with other musicians. This song is hilarious and our very fat cat reminds me of these lines which I loved:

    We only have one left and he is about 15 years old so I don’t know how much longer he will be around, but he seems to be happy, active and full of it too. Sending Lots of love and hugs to the family there down in the Rio Grande – Love and Hugs Joni

    • Thanks, Joni. I’m happy you liked it and got it. I’m way behind on commenting on your posts.

      • Oh please don’t worry about that. I took today to catch up on people’s post I enjoy but know I will be a while. I really am glad you found your office and your doing well. Hugs and love ❤️ Joni

    • You are welcome, Holly. I’m delighted you got a big smile out of it. Thanks for dropping by and taking part in the craziness.

    • Cats are great. Just don’t play bloody awful country music and you should be safe. Thanks, Brian.

  6. I laughed with your song! I laughed with your photos too! Don’t let the cat out of the bag, they say… It’s not always that easy… 🙂

    • Hi Flo. I’m very happy you got a laugh out of the song and photos. We all need to laugh these days. Even if you have to take a walk on the silly side.

    • You are welcome, Julie. I’m happy you had some fun with the song. Spunker is a punker. He likes Sid Vicious.

  7. Totally enjoyed the song!
    LOL, Spunkie-Poo 💋 is not giving up his gold mine of a bag!
    Okay, Silver is exceptionally funny in this one! What a sweet devil!

    • I thought you might like it. Not much better for a good laugh than a silly country song. Spunk is very opinionated.
