An Inquiry about Kenny Kosek & Matt Glaser

Hello Mr Pirate

Damn but you have good taste in music.


Question for you.
I had that Kenny Kosek & Matt Glaser lp years ago but it went the way of all good things when I moved house & had to abandon ship along with some belongings.

There was a song that I thought was on it - but obviously not. So it must
have been another lp - & fairly sure it was Glaser or Kosek or both, or someone remarkably similar - someone Newgrassy but with olde style roots (NOT Mark O'C).

The lyrics were near as damn it:

"They make their song like I make mine
Double shuffle, diesel whine

They make a dollar here & there
At bars and county fairs


So play the songs as best you can

"XXXXXX" & "say old man"
(can't remember the remaining two lines)


It was all out of tempo, sung to an open string double stop violin backing,
then segued into something else.

Any ideas?

Then I could recapture my lost youth.


Best to you
,

Hmm... I'm at a loss. But maybe in the vast arterial knowledge-base that is my readership, an answer can be found. It sounds like a cool tune! Leads? Anybody? It's a treasure-hunt!

thanks irate pirate for sharing this gem.

Hahaha! Well it seems somebody wasn't listening very closely...
Actually what it shows is that I don't usually listen to lyrics...

I guess the moral of the story is that whatever you're most desperately seeking, it's probably right in front of you, especially when it's a case of lost youth...

Thanks for the close attention. I'd still like to hear Breakfast Special someday
