Thread Name: Lyr Add: Flatpicking Carnegie Hall
Subject: Lyr Add: Flatpickin' Carnegie Hall
These lyrics were written to the tune of 'Flowers on the Wall'
in 2002 during a week of Steve Kaufman's Flatpicking Camp (Marysville, TN). Carnegie Hall is actually a college dormitory on the campus of Marysville college
Flatpickin' Carnege Hall
I keep hearing your concerned about my happiness
Far away at flatpick camp I'm trying to do my best
If I was walking in your shoes I wouldn't worry none
While you're at home, watching kids I'm out here havin' fun
Flatpickin' Carnegie Hall, it don't bother folks at all
Playin' St. Anne's Reel 'til dawn with a group of 21
[Note - insert flatpick break here]
Takin' guitar breaks and watching World Cup on TV
It's nothin' to you, It's music to me
Tonight I dressed in jeans, playin' in a guitar band
Beppe was conductin' and I held the music stand
The rhythm section drove the beat, they knocked out Bye Bye Blues
The audience applauded, we had nothin' left to lose.
It's good to be here, I won't go, I'm stayin' overnight
Need to practice Gold Rush until I get it right
[Note - insert flatpick break]
Please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doin' fine
Playin' here at Kaufman Camp and tryin' to keep Time....
Hope you like it (makes for good flatpickin' entertainment). Next stop - Carnegie Hall!
