Early Morning Rain (DEMO)

from Uke Town - Double Demo Album by Phil ‘Swill’ Odgers

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Originally intended as a project through PledgeMusic until they managed to lose all of my recording funds! This is double album of 18 tracks, including 3 special cover songs, on a twin CD set. All written or played on a Ukulele! Yes, you heard that right, a Ukulele! There are some other instruments on here too of course – Tom Spencer joins in on Banjo and Guitar, Geoff Price plays Lap Steel and Mandolin – and more there’s Ukes of course – James knight also play a Tongue Drum on one of the tracks!!

    In the main part these are demo versions of songs I’ve written or taken a shine too over the past year. I’ll be looking at picking 10 of these songs, developing them further and re-recording later for a ‘commercially available’ album at some point (which may include more traditional rock n’ roll instruments).

    This double CD is a very limited edition only available here and possibly at some gigs next year. It will not be made available for general release.

about

This is my take on a song written by Gordon Lightfoot. I also give a nod to the Peter, Paul and Mary version.

I found this song as a result of someone suggestiong a Gordon Lightfoot song would suit my voice and playing style ...can't recall who said that so please contact me if it was you.

lyrics

In the early morning rain with a dollar in my hand
With an aching in my heart and my pockets full of sand
Now, I'm a long way from home and I miss my loved ones so
In the early morning rain with no place to go

Out on runway number nine a big 707's set to go
But, I'm stuck here in the grass where the cold wind blows
Now, the liquor tasted good and the women all were fast
Well, there she goes, my friend, well she's going down at last

Hear the mighty engines roar - see the silver bird on high
She's away and westward bound - far above the clouds she'll fly
There the morning rain don't fall and the sun always shines
She'll be flying over my home in about three hours time

This old airport's got me down - it's no earthly good to me
'cause I'm stuck here on the ground as cold and drunk as I can be
You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So, I'd best be on my way in the early morning rain

You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So, I'd best be on my way in the early morning rain
