I have been working on these tunes for years. Some of them (Easy Street, for instance) go back to the 70's. I recently reconnected with the amazing Frog - Mark T Jordan, currently on tour with Van Morrison - who was one of the original members of the Edison Electric Band. It was truly wonderful to w

Getting Out
Lyrics
I just got the call from my big brother
He saw the parole board yesterday
And he's finally getting out
My brother's finally getting out

When he went down with his third strike I was just a kid
They grabbed him in the playground, they said he was selling lids
But he's finally getting out
My brother's finally getting out

(Chorus)

This time tomorrow when he walks through the door
He's gonna be smiling like he never did before
Crank up the guitars and beat your drum
Gonna make the bayou ring til the morning comes
Call out the neighbours bring out all your friends
My big brother is coming home again

We gonna roast a pig and we got crawfish stew
The whole town is coming to a party on the bayou
My brother's is getting out
My brother's finally is getting out

The old man's cleaning up his whiskey still
Gonna drink some moonshine up on the hill
My brother's getting out
My brother's finally getting out

(Chorus)

This time tomorrow when he walks through the door
He's gonna be smiling like he never did before
Crank up the guitars and beat your drum
Gonna make the bayou ring til the morning comes
Call out the neighbours bring out all your friends
My big brother is coming home again

(Slide guitar)

(Chorus)

This time tomorrow when he walks through the door
He's gonna be smiling like he never did before
Crank up the guitars and beat your drum
Gonna make the bayou ring til the morning comes
Call out the neighbours bring out all your friends
My big brother is coming home again

(Repeat)
Description
Short Song Description:
Nothing says party quite like cajun music, or zydeco. This is a straight-up party stomper.
Long Song Description:
The theme of the song is "we have a great reason for a party". For me, 1960's New Orleans music has always been the best party music ever, and I have incorporated those roots into this song.
Story Behind the Song:
The song is about a boy who grew up without his big brother due to the "war on drugs". The release of of his brother from jail is cause for a huge party, the whole town will celebrate.
