TUNE James Carson - Once A Mighty Oak
Once a Mighty Oak, is the oldest song to appear on the debut EP "Sold As Scene". It was one of the first songs I ever wrote and is a tragic tale of alcoholism - a subject that I have been unfortunate enough to have some into close contact with. It's about watching someone slowly destroy their life and feeling helpless to prevent it. Like watching a head on car collision in slow motion. Musically the song has dark, atmospheric surf guitar vibe but is very much a folk/blues song.
