Swill's Sunday Session #8 - Storytelling Songs

by Phil ‘Swill’ Odgers



Audio podcast version of Swill's Sunday Session #8 originally broadcast on 14th June 2020 on Facebook and also uploaded to YouTube: youtu.be/avDwtp18y6g

Todays session 'theme' is storytelling songs! Many of 'The Men They Couldn’t Hang' and my own songs follow this tradition. A central character, a plot, twists and turns. So here's a handful for you. Plus plenty of tales from the tracks, anecdotes and general waffle.

Songs played in this session (including keys for musicians):
1. The Colours (D) – TMTCH 8th Single
2. Big Iron (C) – The Classic Gunslinger Ballad (Bside to The Colours)
3. Blue Skies And A Saturday Job (C) – from Roll To The Left
4. Our Day Will come (G) - from Never Born to Follow (The Men They Couldn't Hang)
5. Sam Hall (D) - from Welcome To Wonderland (Best of Swill & The Swaggerband)

Come and see Phil 'Swill Odgers special show at the Hope and Anchor – FRIDAY 4th December www.ents24.com/london-events/hope-and-anchor-and-the-hope-theatre/phil-odgers/6071198
