preserved and safe on a high-up shelf
where soiled little fingers can't mess
catalogued labeled and rarely-played
polished and pure and possessed

that's not music
that's a pickle

best keep your songs in the safety of darkness
and never expose them to light
open with care (shh), pack in the box
all your songs might grow wings and take flight

that's not music
that's a pickle


whealin' and the dealin' there, in the whiskey business for a long time...
and this guy had a guitar
it laid around there and I...
lotta times there wouldn't be any customers in the place and I'd grab up this guitar and I got to pecking around on it and I thought it sounded awful pretty

    General CommentI love this. i saw them live this week, they played this and had us all sing the pickle chorus, it makes pickle sound like just an odd word after about the first 4 or so....
