Dearly Departed - Cover of Shakey Graves

Our favorite cover, loved the warehouse feel we got from the 3rd floor of the Pearl Street Brewery. Thanks to Tami & Joe for allowing us to use the space, and Terry for taping us.  Plus we can't thank Pete Solberg enough for the new photos that will be on the website soon.

Don't Screw it up, Again (lyric video)

Until I get the talent picked and a real music video taped, here's a Lucky Dog original from the Bones CD.  A happy ending country classic song!  This couple is starting over with a second chance, and she's looking pretty good.  The pale ale on the bar is brought to you by Pearl Street Brewery, the fiddle by Pigtown Fling's Jessie McDonald, the snappy drums by Wayne Wickman, and the back up vocals by the Lynn & Kevin (orginal dogs)

Simple Twist of Fate

I can remember the night I decided to learn this song.  It was after hearing a Christian speaker tell a heartfelt story about a prostitute.  Here's Dylan's prostitute story from his Blood on the Tracks LP, and I play a little slower to emphasize the story.

Swordfishtrombone

Been working on this song since I heard it over the summer for the first time being busked on the plaza in Boulder by  Thomas LaFond & Enion Pelta-Tiller. They had an incredible gypsy feel to the song.  I had to asked afterward, who was that song by?  I wouldn't share or cover it until I knew it by heart.  Great story song by Tom Waits.  Look up his version for a little mambo vibe version.  It will be in the next setlist!

Forever 21

Here's a sequel to Don't Screw it Up...we find the heroine will always be 21.

One more Cup of Coffee

Oh my this is 2011 video, I've been doing this song for a while, but I love it.  Deciding what songs should we pay for and put on a covers CD, it just might be this one; especially if I can get Jessie to add a fiddle.

Family Tree covered by Pigtown Fling

For my 60th birthday I received the best present ever, the band (Pigtown Fling Stringband) I had booked for the party not only learned two of my songs, they RECORDED them for me.  Here's Family Tree, both are available on our  Lucky Dog bandcamp page.  All proceeds go to the band.  I don't think I can ever repay them for checking off a bucket list item.

Sing a New Song

A great folk bluegrass gathering or sending worship song used with Sunday School & camp worship.  Easy key of C.  The lyrics and chords are in the YouTube about section.   Any use of the song we ask you for a contribution to Holmen Lutheran's Building Fund ELCA; Holmen WI
