Late For School
Late for School
I had bought a new Stelling banjo. I had learned about them from my friend and fellow player Billy Connolly, the comedian and international artiste. It arrived, and I took it out of the case, and started playing this song. I cant tell you why it should happen this way, but it was as though the song had been shipped in the box. I gave it the title “Late for School,” and it was purely an instrumental. During the recording, I found myself thinking that the image the song produced of a young boy late for school was extremely vivid. I wrote the lyrics a month later a month later, and we recorded them after manipulating the existing track.
