about

A series of rhyming complaints alternating with expressions of gratitude ...

lyrics

Weed trees weaving through the chain link fence
Morning glories just 'a hanging their heads
And when the sun comes up
There'll be no fanfare
Only my love beside me
The light of a brand new day
In her hair

Lazing in the shade of an ancient tree
Drifting on a dream like a cottonwood seed
And branches fall whenever the wind says, “boo!”
And the time to climb the shaky old ladder
And clean out the gutters is long past due

And I'm standing here, looking at the stars
Strumming this old guitar
I forgot how lovely life can be
Out in my back yard

Car doors closing
Birds unfolding
One note robins
And crows with faraway eyes
Barely a breeze to stir the silence
The curtains sigh and so do I

Another day gone by

Oh, the rusted out belly of the barbecue grill
Chicken grease is dripping down a rhythm
And the dog catches every last drop
Before it hits the ground
And it’s 8:45 by the time the sun goes down

And I'm standing here, looking at the stars
So good so far
I forgot how lovely life can be
Out in my back yard

Well, I hope that rabbit gets a stomach ache
From the green tomato he ate
He took one bite and then took off beneath the gate

about

Scott Hrabko Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City's Scott Hrabko is an independent singer/songwriter who has followed his own restless, shape-shifting muse since the town's late-80s indie rock scene.

“Hrabko’s rootsy songs are filled with trap doors, hidden nooks, and secret passageways. They’re like those dreams within comfortably familiar houses that suddenly have brand new rooms.”
Mike Warren - No Depression
