This is a new folk song written by my friend Rebecca Hall of the folk duo Hungrytown. I present it to you in an instrumental version; you can hear Hungrytown sing this on their CD, which is available at This song is worthy of entry into the folk lexicon, so I thought I would put it out there. Standard tuning, capo 2, C position, Key of D.

Fine, elegant picking, Laura. "What will you need tonight, my love, the rose or the briar?"

That was real nice Laura, were you playing a Vega?

Yes, Oscar, I was playing a Vega with a warped aluminum engine block. Oh, that wasn't what you meant, was it?

Well it sure sounded nice whatever it was. Didn't know the banjo was warped.
