THRIFT TOWN

Attached is the link to a prison related song I wrote influenced by the coolest thrift shop chain you can ever find. The stores are called Thrift Town http://www.thrifttown.com and you can find them mostly in the southwest. What I like best about them, not only can you find really neat stuff (antiques, clothes, housewares, guitars, etc) but they also work with worthy causes. So I recommend you visit them and buy something to give yourself a great gift while also put back something into the community.

My song is about the breaking loose of things in life that are holding you back from actually being free. The character in the story is a metaphor for all of us in one way or another seeking to escape the ties that bind us from being the happy people we should be. For a free download of my song Thrift Town recorded by The Nob Hill Billys and produced by Lazy Brad Lewis go here http://davidlear.com/thrifttown.mp3 below are the lyrics:

THRIFT TOWN

Just out of prison and these threads are dead | These Zebra stripes they really wreck your head | I’m going to Thrift Town | Buy myself a brand new pair of shoe | I’m gonna buy a bowling shirt and a second-hand girl | I’m going to Thrift Town

The Warden said “Now, don’t you hesitate, best get a new suit if you’re going straight” | I’m going to Thrift Town | Buy myself a brand new pair of shoe I’m gonna buy a bowling shirt and a second-hand girl | I’m going to Thrift Town

That ball and chain can really wreck your soul | I’m free now baby, but I’m on parole | I’m going to Thrift Town | Buy myself a brand new pair of shoe | I’m gonna buy a bowling shirt and a second-hand girl | I’m going to Thrift Town

I’m gonna buy a bowling shirt and a second-hand, Rockabilly, two-step swinging, one man loving, double drinkin’, no two timin’ kinda girl
