Topic: Daddy's Baker's Dozen - original tune for local songwriting challenge

Our local open mic is celebrating it's sixth anniversary and has challenged each of us to write a song with the word "six" in it.  Here is my submission; a totally made-up whimsical little tune with many references to "six" in it.  I hope you enjoy!

Funny song Jim - Very creative lyrics and a good tune to go along with it. Sounds like a great open mike / beer drinking song.

Schweet lyrics Jim!!  Its gonna be a hit next Thursday at the Open Stage.  Wish I could be there to hear it, but I'll be camped on a river bank in Kentucky, picking bluegrass with some friends. Glad you posted it so I could enjoy ahead of time.

Thanks to all for your feedback!  I will give it a try next Thursday and see how it goes.  I was afraid that the one line with the play on words might offend some with the mere suggestion and the symbolism of rhyming with the word truck.   It is supposed to be fun and most will take it as that.  Good Luck on the fishing trip Ken!  I know those fellows will enjoy the picking around the fire at night.

Great job Jim!  Wish I had been there.

I wrote one called "Six Year Old Whiskey" and played it the week before the anniversary.  Here's a video of the other one I wrote called "Six Years Aboard the Open Stage".
