about

This is an original song. It may or may not be about a pirate captain who sleeps with the wives of his entire crew and then suffers their wrath. It may or may not be inspired by my love of Joanna Newsom.

lyrics

Bury me in the deepest valley
Let the devil call me home
Carry my bones down from the galley
Lay no wreaths upon my stone

And let me rest
Then let me go
And let me go (x3)

Tell your wives that I fought bravely
And I died in the name of love
Forgive me those times I couldn’t be
The friend you are deserving of

And hear my words
Then call my name
And call me home (x3)

Hear my words, and call my name (x4)

So raise a glass of salty water
Drink with me one last time
Follow me down till it gets hotter
Far from home, end of the line

And bind my feet
Then send me under
And cry your tears
For those I plundered
Along the way

about

Daniel Muenz Ann Arbor, Michigan

A folkie at heart, I'm drawn to simple melodies and to lyrics that tell a story. This whole thing's an experiment; I'm figuring out how to make music as I go.
