This Song Isn't True - Demo - Three String Cohiba Cigar Box Guitar

Whoops, realised after filming that the music stand was covering the CBG! If you want to see it better, check out this vid : -) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2tqLX_7sY8

Lyrics:

This Song Isn't True

CHORUS
This song isn't true,
made it up just for you.
People never lie,
and the sun will always shine,
yeah this song isn't true.

There's a God up in the sky.
You'll go to heaven when you die.
Every man should have a gun,
every father, every son.
There's a god up in the sky.

CHORUS

We haven't messed up this world.
Still got time to turn it round.
The air's pollution free,
there's plenty more fish in the sea.
We haven't messed up this world

CHORUS

This is a happy song.
Makes you want to sing along.
It's good not to think,
and to drown yourself in drink.
Yeah this is a happy song, but

CHORUS X 2

Thanks Uncle J, I thought the harp was a bit dodgy. Hadn't really worked out what I was going to do,lol!

Linda and I just enjoyed this and laughed because it does sound happy and light, but the (good) lyrics are less happy and light and more true and ironic.   One of your best songs and performances and pretty darn good harp.
