  1. "Peculiar Day"

From the recording The Road to You

In cart Not available Out of stock

A whimsical storybook similar to “Alice in Wonderland,” where one awakens from a dream where a persuasive, evil being lures an innocent girl into temptation to set aside her fears and be free; a tale told through the language of mass oxymoron.

Lyrics

I came upon a hilly holler
And spotted a skinny cow
Grazing on frozen sun berries
In the blustery summer hour

When steadily all of a sudden
In blew a tame tornado
I felt a clash of harmony
Resonate a quiet echo

It was a pretty safe gamble
to flee like a noble crook
But my naive wisdom
Said to stay and have a look

A peculiar day it was
A peculiar day it was
A peculiar day it was
Oh so peculiar

The righteous devil himself
Wearing a crooked halo
Lured me to a fireplace
To calm my nerves and let go

I turned into a black dove
And I could fly along the ground
So he gave me salty chocolate
And he watched me dance around

It was a pretty safe gamble
To run like a bat outta hell
But my naive wisdom
Said to fall under his spell

A peculiar day it was
A peculiar day it was
A peculiar day it was
Oh, so peculiar

I was happy as a howling mouse
Gargling holy beer
I displayed a healthy fever
You would never venture near

He gave a melancholy laugh
And whistled deep and low
Then breathed a flaming icicle
That could even scare a crow

It was a pretty safe gamble
To say it was a dream
But my naive wisdom
Said to set my spirit free

A peculiar day it was
A peculiar day it was
A peculiar day it was
Oh, so peculiar

Well, he drowned in solid quick sand
And left me all alone
So I picked up my guitar and wrote
This curious little song

…oh so peculiar
