"The Aftershock Is Shockin'"
Margie, Art, Al & S. Corey/BMI Copyright 2002 (c)

1st Verse
Oh, the Aftershock is Shockin' and the whole desert's rockin'
But, I'm still so in love with you
I'm stuck here in Yucca and I blame that rotten luck-a
I never got to tie the knot with you

You snuck out in the mornin' and you left without a warnin'
You never even said good-bye
When the news started breakin', the whole town was shakin'
And the Ricker hit Seven-point-five.......

When those ridges come tumblin' down
I don't want to be in a desert town
When all are love came to a halt
I hope you will forgive me for most of my faults......

2nd Verse
If you come to California, Lord, I've got to warn ya
There's a whole lot a shakin' goin' on
And if you lose your lover, I hope you will discover
You can write a good country song

Now, play it in G, then bring it up to C
And sweeten up that melody
When your love's on the rocks and you feel them hard knocks
Remember what you heard from me....

Chorus Repeat

3rd Verse
Now, here's my predicament: I'm gettin' pretty sick of it
Livin' in a world of pain
I'll pack my bags tonight and I'll be out of sight
Leavin' on a outbound train..........

Really cool sound that just about knocks your socks off. Instrumentation and arrangement are top notch. Much of the verse puts me very much to mind of "Cover of the Rolling Stone."

So you've got some good elements here...I like the harmonica, you've got good vocal pitch, and pretty good instrumentation.

This really a good... I would like to hear more

Fun song! Nice instrumentation, hook, arrangement and recording. Great job! Love the instrumentation! Oh, I think I said that already! :)

Nice boogie woogie

I love this song. Very catchy melody, leaves you humming the tune long afterward. A sign of a very good song. I love a harmonica, too.
Very good job.

This covers all the bases and has an authentic sound. I imagine this would be very welcome on the dance floor.

Cool song. It is fun. I love the "Outbound train" that almost sounds like a train whistle. Well done!

I like the sound of the bass guitar and the drums, very good beat - I also like the lead vocals, the song sounds like a cross between Boxcar Willie and the Don Williams Band.

nice tone on the harp. nice mix and harmonies
