Girl With The Guitar (for Margaret of Mr. Airplane Man)

about

Mr. Airplane Man is one large knockout of a sound, of nasty slide guitar, big stage presence. Unforgettable. This is home studio (garageband) version. Hope to nail it in the studio one day soon.

lyrics

the girl with the guitar (for margaret of Mr Airplane Man)

the girl with the guitar
like a boy in her arms
twanging away like a ice storm
slidin up the frets
a bottle on the neck
empathetic, sexy,
+ disturbing

like a knife in the water
like a moth to the flame 
twisted rusty strings
played like she could save
you, you + me

the girl with the guitar
like a pretty boy in her arms
twanging away like a ice storm
a  spot light on her face
she looks like she won't break
yr heart
but you ain't sure 
r you

catholic school girl knee socks
trippin up her legs
short skirt is a triumph
of the will
on a table's a gin + tonic
ice shaking from the sonic
boom, boom...
