I always try to simplify things by distilling an idea down to it's basic core. This song is about exactly that.

My son Joe was messing around with this progression and I wrote the lyrics while working a few days later. I came up with a b part, and this is the final arrangement. Sort of..

Dedicated to woody and all the other carps and chippies out there.....

This instantly translated me when I used to built boxes with strings in my short luthier era.
Haven't sawdust the best smell ever?
Even your voice sounds a little like some wood-carving machine, with the right rythm cadence, like sawing or "limando" a noble piece of wood.
Thank you for the flashback!

This is a great tune. Simple as the best things are. The song is straight and true. Your voice is getting younger and younger sounding. If the grey starts going away you might really be on to something. Love Jr's guitar work as well.

Oh boy now my brother is running around banging on things pretending he's a carpenter. He wouldn't know straight and true if it hit him in the face. Great tune but now he's going outside and it's too cold to go out there with out a shirt on.

Wally,

This is wonderful. Your singing makes me want to shut up and your son's guitar playing makes me want to put away my guitars forever.

Beautiful,

beaut rich timbres on the guitar and the singing puts across the lyrics well, inc. some difficult/unusual notes smiley great bass playing -- you know, I guess bass playing is a lot like carpentry, under-appreciated but really important?
