Back Porch People was written just when we thought there was light at the end of the tunnel with the pandemic, and then bam! Delta. In 2020 we complained about how awful everything was, but in 2021 I think the attitude is to make the most of what we've got.


Summertime comes ‘round again.
Countryside blooming’ with hope.
Can we do like we did in 2019?
Government’s still sayin’, “NOPE!” (So we’ll be…..)

Back Porch People, Living Small
Sippin’ on a summertime beer.
Lubin’ up the bike, and dragging on a blunt,
and sticking pretty close to here.

Why do we travel in summer at all?
Why hop a plane and take flight?
Let’s skip the noise, and hassle and fear,
and be in the moment tonight.


Back Porch People: Come and set a spell.
Back Porch People: We’ve all been through hell.
