about

Another 'social media interests' song, this one for my friend Nicole B. It parodies a couple of different blues songs, mostly Charley Patton's 'Tom Rushen Blues'.

Lion's Brand is a fairly cheap but decent yarn brand, so the last verse is just a little joke for any yarn snobs out there.

lyrics

I walked into a yarn store, happy as I could be
I walked into a yarn store, happy as I could be
Then the next thing you know, yarn store owner's shaking me

Now they got me arrested, charge of mistreating yarn
Now they got me arrested, charge of mistreating yarn
Now maybe I touched some but I sure didn't mean no harm

Now before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Keeping all of this pretty yarn captive on that dusty shelf

Yeah, the judge sentenced me, ten years in that Cranston pen
Yeah, the judge sentenced me, ten years in that Cranston pen
Would have been twenty-nine but that yarn was just Lion Brand
