Artist's Notes

New instruments always seem to generate new song ideas for me.

My wife bought a Udu (percussion instrument) at a music festival and I came up with this tune on my Ukulele.

Be careful what you wish forEasy come and easy go


ChorusOn the Long way downThere is a road that you must travel

On the Long way downThere is a place you have to go

The truth is always goldenWritten in the leaves of tea

The road leads on foreverPlay with fire and you?ll get burned
