New Song – Conditional Love

This one is sung a cappella to a basic blues melody. It has some familiar types of lyrics but with a twist.  A love song to a country.

Conditional Love

I’m gonna love you till the cows come home,
love you till the cows come home.
Well, all they wanna do is ramble and roam
but I’ll love you till the cows come home.

I’ll love you till the river runs dry,
love you till the river runs dry.
Now the water’s rising, it’s getting mighty high
but I’ll love you till the river runs dry.

I’ll love you till the stars fall down,
love you till the stars fall down.
Well, they’re stuck in the sky, they can’t tumble to the ground
but I’ll love you till the stars fall down.

I’ll love you till the skies go grey,
love you till the skies go grey.
But when the clouds come out and the sun goes away,
and it’s been like this day after day,
well, sorry, darlin’, I just can’t stay,
I’ve got that seasonal affective disorder,
I’m gonna pack my things and move on south to Firenze,
or I might go back to the USA
and find a nice little cottage
in Ocean Beach, San Di-e-i-e-i-e-go.
And I do mean ‘go’.
