about

Written on ukulele on the topic of new love. Young lovers. The want to run away from it all. The need to live a utopian life style on some self sufficient farm or something.

It is the kid brother to an older un-released track called "Garage Sale". Perhaps we will record that one one day.

The Ukelele I play on this track is a Gibson banjo/uke form the 1920's.
I bought it in Capetown, South Africa in a mom and pop music shop.

Love it.

lyrics

IN THE VALLEY

I’m fumbling too through the valley
I’m fumbling through
It’s quite a view in the valley
And I’m following you
Clothes on my back need a mending
Clothes on my back
My soul is worn and offending
There’s holes in my slacks

WHAT BABE CAN I DO TO PUSH MY LOVE INTO YOU? WHAT BABE CAN I SAY TO MAKE THIS TRIP OK?

I’ve got 2 plums and a grapefruit
I’ve got 2 plums
Sharing grains and fruit in the valley
Like 2 hippie bums
Said there’s a shack in the country
Dreamt of a shack
Make wine, plant crops, and a plum tree
Living clothes on backs

WHAT BABE CAN I DO TO PUSH MY LOVE INTO YOU?
WHAT BABE CAN I SAY TO MAKE THIS TRIP OK?

I’m fumbling too through the valley
I’m fumbling through
It’s quite a view in the valley
And I’m following you
