So here is this weird little tune that Martha and I recorded vocals for yesterday. (Of course, she totally rocked it, as usual).

The tune is nothing fancy, just a short, dark little blues ditty. Working title is Keep Moving. You can listen to it here.

Oddly enough, the inspiration for the first line came from playing World of Warcraft: in the game, you spend a long time walking around, wishing you had a mount because walking is slow, and mounts are fast.

I picked up the melody while I was at the RT office in Austin last February. I must have driven poor Geoff and Griffon crazy because I was humming it the entire time; they were nevertheless very gracious hosts, except for that part where Griffon killed me, but that's all behind us now.

For those of you who like lyrics:

I've gotta keep on movin'
I've gotta keep on movin'
I've gotta keep on movin'
I got troubles on my mind

Each day I'm getting stronger
Each day I'm getting stronger

Well you've got a fast horse
Yeah you've got a fast horse
Take me with you

Each day I'm getting stronger
Each day I'm getting stronger

Last night I had a nightmare
My nightmare keeps me moving
And you've got a white mare
So take me with you

If you fall I'll catch you...
