about

The bare bones approach to writing and playing acoustic with a guitar, voice and harmonica. Sometimes less is more.

For more bare bones acoustic from this artist try these titles:

lyrics

birthday song, take 4
- by david elias

It never really was too far
Not that you could get there in an automobile
Then again it wasn't near
Not to mention disappearing clear anyhow
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone

You feel a little worse for wear
And a little longer in the tooth, my friend
You keep a watch with a soldier's stare
Ends the song that lingered in your youth too long
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone
Give me your ivory
Give me your whale bone

Cavalier in the cavalcade
These events will creep up on to pass you by
Happiest of happy days
The woodman watches from his roadside
And sighs
