I’ve got a friend he won’t give in keeps on going through thick and thin waits each day for his ship to come in aint it high time….. words & music by George Bacon copyright 2003 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)

walk a mile with me my friend aint it a struggle aint it a breeze aint it a mystery aint it all of these you may be with trusted friends you may be among thieves any time you feel all alone you’re in good company we’re all travelling the same road to the same end we’re all looking for the same something round the same next bend our way is lit by the same light and if we must we fight the same fight we’re all travelling the same road walk a mile with me my friend maybe you’re wealthy, more likely poor a man from Timbuktu, or the girl next door all round the world we look to our leaders be they prophets, presidents or kings and each last pair of ears prick up when the last bell rings we’re all………… words & music by George Bacon & Joe Flood copyright 2006 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)/Jungle Curry Music(BMI)

it’s a dog’s life I like to walk like a dog I like to wag my tail I chase anything imaginary or real it aint so tough just being a dog’s enough I like to talk like a dog I like to howl at the moon I come when I’m called if I’ve got nothing better to do it aint so tough just being a dog’s enough ‘cos it’s a dog’s life a dog’s life a dog’s life a dog’s life it aint so tough just being a dog’s enough I like to eat like a dog sleep like a dog bathe and dress chase sheep like a dog sit like a dog run like a dog bark and growl have fun like a dog ‘cos it’s a dog’s life…… words & music by George Bacon copyright 2007 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)

hymn 02:13
hymn I wish I knew how to tell you right now how I feel but the words just wont come you stand before me in all your glory my only, my permanent one friends come and they go wives and lovers also children speak in strange tongues still with you I am glad even when I’m sad with you I’ll remain when I’m done only with you do dreams come true only with you is there peace since so long ago too still I barely know you you are my only relief I’m thrown to the lions cast overboard hung from a tree till I’m dead your patient regard continues unmarred as this doggerel pours out of my head words & music by George Bacon copyright 2002 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)

never coming back you keep on calling me at all times of the day and night and tell me we cant be together any more as if our love is like a light we can turn on and off by flicking on a plastic switch that’s on the wall you not here, I’m not there we’re disconnected, out of whack and I’m afraid, and I’m afraid you’re never coming back and when we meet out on the street or in a house that is not ours and yet we’ll find again we’re face to face do you believe that we’ll no longer want to reach out tenderly and wrap each other in a warm embrace you not here, I’m not there we’re disconnected, out of whack and I’m afraid, I’m afraid you’re never coming back……… words & music by George Bacon copyright 2003 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)

I'm going fishing I’ve got me a box of worms got me a hook and a line got me a head full of troubles to help me pass the time and I’ve got something I can do it don’t cost a dime I’m going go down to where the water flows and cast my line I’m going fishing got a line and a pole I’m going fishing hook me something from a fishing hole I hadnt seen her for a while she said it hadnt been long enough how can someone so sweet wind up acting so tough she turned her head away as I reached across for a kiss if that’s the way the world is today all I’ve got to say is this I’m going fishing……. words & music by George Bacon copyright 2003 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)

rolling hills to the horizon open sky not a sound but the whispering trees stepping out with my sweetheart hand in hand just we two like Adam and Eve spring lambs gambol in the meadow under the sun blossom scent perfumes the breeze our eyes pose unspoken questions theres no reply just we two like Adam and Eve lofty mountains penetrate the sky below the forest a river rolls by lightly we tread upon what grows there no beaten path just we two like Adam and Eve words & music by George Bacon copyright 2003 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)

I’d like to ask you a question it wont take a minute of your time I’d sure value your opinion about this little problem of mine I like drinking all kinds of liquor and I’m partial to all colours of wine cider and beer keep me sincere about this little problem of mine see it don’t bother me the things that I do in fact it seems to suit me just fine I aint found nothing better yet to help me forget about this little problem of mine so wont you sit down for a moment and hand me that bottle of wine and listen to what I have to tell you about this little problem of mine none of us are getting any younger and what I do don’t constitute a crime and I don’t think I can hold out much longer without this little problem of mine see it don’t bother me the things that I do in fact it seems to suit me just fine I aint found nothing better yet to help me forget about this little problem of mine this tiny little problem of mine words & music by George Bacon copyright 2003 Cottage Pie Music(BMI)

about

Sometime in 1984 in NYC I became the proud owner of
a Yamaha 4 track cassette recorder. Immediately my
songwriting manoeuvres changed forever. I now had
the means to experiment with arrangements and instrumentation without having to persuade other
musicians to indulge me. I could play with myself!

After thousands of hours of fun with that machine,
in the 90s I acquired an 8 track Tascam reel to reel recorder with a built in mixer. This kept me happy for several years. Then in 2003 I went digital and bought
a hard disc recorder, and 3 years later got a new Mac and a basic Pro Tools rig.

Through all of these years I have made do with an absolute minimum of peripherals. Pre-amps, effects, plug-ins, and so on have been scarce or non existent. I have nonetheless made hundreds of recordings, and some of them are not that bad!

lo fi is a collection of 15 of the better ones. I think they are worth a listen. I hope you do too!

I will shortly put more info on my soon-to-be-launched website
www.georgebreakfast.com

In the spirit of lo fi this album is very cheap!
