Billy Bob Joe

Finally, here's a recorded version of our highly requested Billy Bob Joe, written by my daughter (who was 7 1/2 years old at the time) and her 8 year old friend Katherine.  I helped with the music, but you gotta checkout their amazing words. 

I recorded this on a tascam 424 4-track that I found on ebay for $70. I pulled it out of the box and recorded this song in the kitchen with an SM57.  Enjoy!



"...then he died - The End!"
Too funny. Your daughter and her friend write better lyrics than most folks these days.
The music/vocals and recording weren't too shabby either!
I'm going to have to start visiting eBay more often.
I'm very happy to have found your site.
Best o'luck


Thanks for tuning in Bri, and I'll pass along your compliments to the girls...


Tell Lexi and Katherine thanks for putting a smile on my face!!

Next time I'm on I can't wait to hear your piano playing.

Too funny, Jeff! Thanks for giving me the link. Musical talent obviously runs in the family!
