Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
Subject: RE: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
Back in 1999, I lived in the city and was afraid of chainsaws, and this song didn't make sense to me. Since then, I've married a country girl and moved to her paradise in the foothills - and NOW I wish she had a chainsaw. It's nice having a wood fire, but it's a lot of work to keep it going when it's your only source of heat.
I heard Peter Krug sing this at Camp Harmony this winter, and it was truly inspiring. Peter has written lots of wonderful songs. See How The Land Yields Up Her Treasure is another one I heard him sing this year - it's in the Rise Up Singing Songbook. I'll see what we have posted, and crosslink them to this thread.
