S McGee Buys The Farm

Another belter off the BanjoPhony album (Damien O’Kane & Ron Block).
Written by the ever mysterious David Kosky.
The A part is as Kosky originally wrote it. B part is my best guess.
Apologies to DK for any blunders.

S McGee Buys The Farm, X:2

This is my hearing of David Kosky’s S. McGee Buys the Farm, a song about Kosky’s pet fish which they thought died but then was mysteriously alive again multiple times. The transitions from Dmajor to Dminor act like the emotional rollercoaster his fish took him on.

Damien O’Kane adds some 16th notes and switches up the melody on subsequent playthroughs, but this is the gist of it.
