Texas hold em poker, and going for it all. Open mic acoustic with some alt tuning. Percussion by Norm.

The kokiriko? Norms playing in there actually sounds like shuffling cards- particularly loving the glockenspiel addition he did too. Thanks Norm!

The cards are shuffled then dealt to you
Some get held, some go through
The House is full, the drinks are free
Nothin but a pair of empty hands

Vegas, Aruba, Dubai and Roppongi.
Venetian,Flamingo, back to the winnebago
52 man in blue, nothing but a pair of empty hands

Flop,river, the chance is a sliver.
The plans have changed, youve raised the upsetter.

They stack chips carefully but they tumble quick
nothing like the sound of getting sick
The House is full and the drinks are free
Nothing left to hide but empty hands.

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Some call it luck, I call in lust
Flop, river, the chance is a sliver
The plans have changed, Dont raise the upsetter

Faved instantly. Sooooooo good. I need to take a day, do myself a favor, and go back through the Reefwalker catalog of musical goodness.

WOOO - I've been listening to all of your stuff while doing some much needed guitar maintenance. Haven't been near enough the PC to fave and comment appropriately on individual songs... but WOW! I didn't hear a single track I didn't like, and there is some utterly SUPERB stuff in your track list. Hoping there'll be some more soon.

They say a cut dog bears no pups, but I've got nothing but a pair of Indians. I'll meet you back at the Winnebago...
