Bad Weather

Story Behind The Song

I thought it would be fun to write a blues song using weather patterns as a metaphor for emotions.cb

Impending doom/disaster is indicated in the first verse and embellished through the bridge. The falling barometer and the descending bass line work together to complete the analogy. I felt the 'fuzz bass' added an edgy texture.

Lyrics

Bad Weather

Like a sailors warning, the sky is turning red
I can feel that low down pressure fallin' all around my head
Clouds keep rollin' in 'bout to cover up the sky
And its been a steady rainin' ever since you said goodbye
They say the sun will shine someday but I know better...
Bad Weather

That long hot summer brought a heat wave burnin' up the night
And the mercury kept a risin' to a dangerous new height
Then that north wind started bliowin; and I guess its here to stay
Now there's a cold front in the heartland and it just won't go away
All my highs and lows are jumbled up together...
Bad Weather

Bridge:
Now that storm is gonna howl outside my window
The sky is gonna cry, cry, cry
The thunder's gonna reach a new crescendo
And I'll keep asking why, why, why
Did you leave me this way
