A Wonderful Life

We've had a couple of requests (OK - one was from Craig's mom, but it still counts) for a Still Married Christmas Album.

We're hoping to produce a CD of original and traditional holiday songs in 2009. Meanwhile, here's our one-and-only original Christmas tune, It Was a Wonderful Life. The song was inspired by my favorite Christmas film and the folks at KLXR have it on their holiday play list.

It's available as a free download on our band website this week. You can listen to it here:

It Was a Wonderful Life

Last Spring I left behind a picture perfect family
Then I learned all that glitters is not gold
By September I was sorry, sad and lonely
It’s Christmas eve - I’m at the end of my rope

There’s an old movie playin’ on the TV
‘Bout a man who had it all but wanted more
He’s got Clarence – Me? I got Jim Beam
We’re both wishing we’d never been born


It was only black and white
But It Was a Wonderful Life
It used to be mine and I want it back
One more time for Auld Lange Syne
It Was a Wonderful Life
And I want it back

I want to run through the streets of our home town
Find you waitin’ there beside the Christmas tree
Bells are ringing, children singing - I see it all now
I’m home again and an angel gets his wings


Can we hit rewind – get our happy ending this time
Make this Christmas dream of mine come true?
