New Song: "Praying Very Hard"

My new song "Praying Very Hard".

I've been listening to the American Recordings of Johnny Cash lately. I love the stripped down treatment of those songs. I had last Saturday to myself, so I gave an attempt at a similar style recording. I also wanted to do a story song, so this one is an attempt at that also.

My friend Steve Nylander, from Denver, CO, added a bass line and another friend, Marc Halikas, from Long Beach, NJ, added some slide guitar.  We traded the music files via the Internet.

I have also uploaded the video I made for the song:

Praying Very Hard

I'm on my knees and I'm praying very hard
A whirlwind swirls inside my troubled heart
Now I fear I'm just begging in the dark

Hangman's got a job to see me dead
I killed my Martha's lover, so they said
I was drunk and don't remember, I guess I did

I shall die when the sunshine fills the yard
I've never loved this much the moon and stars
I'm on my knees and I'm praying very hard
I'm on my knees and I'm praying very hard
I'm on my knees and I'm praying very hard

For some reason the link to the song didn't hightlight in the blog, so here it is: http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11433379 p.s. "The Cracks" is my virtual band name.
