To Be Decided

4-track Collaboration - FAWM 2019


This is an actual cassette that was mailed around to four different FAWMers via snail mail. Each person added one track and mailed it to the next person. The song is a mystery to the early participants until it is transferred to computer and mixed by the last person.

The players on this tape are listed below in the order in which they recorded their parts:

Vom Vorton - Electric guitar/drums
helenseviltwin - Bass guitar
Marvsmooth - Organ
Wobbie Wobbit - Lyrics/vocal/mix


Bootstraps


Languishing low
Chin on the ground
Tumbling in a turbulent flow
Helplessly tossed around

Pull yourself up
By your bootstraps
Get a grip and take the reins
Lift your head up
Then perhaps
You can get back on that horse again

Heavy of heart
Weary of mind
Beaten and torn apart
Your words to yourself so unkind

Pull yourself up
By your bootstraps
Get a grip and take the reins
Lift your head up
Then perhaps
You can get back on that horse again

Get on that horse again
Get on the horse
Get on that horse again
Get on the horse
Haul yourself
Drag yourself
Get on that horse again
Get on the horse
Get on that horse again
Get on the horse
Giddy up giddy up
Heave ho heave ho
Giddy up heave ho
Giddy up heave ho
Get on that horse again
Get on that horse again

Pull yourself up
By your bootstraps
Get a grip and take the reins
Lift your head up
Then perhaps
You can get back on that horse again
