Original Song for Valentines Day – in the Shade of the White Plum Tree


Original YT playout date: 11 February 2010
Duration: 3:59

I was helped along in the lyrics by Wufwufwufwuf and MikeCut777, so thanks to those guys, on comments to an earlier video. Here’s the working release of the song in time for Valentines Day. Those who can perform it better, are welcome to go ahead. The mp3 of this is available on this blog. It is the same song as the one in the footer of this blog and is probably my favorite of my own compositions to date.

I am inviting collaboration or covers, and in order to ease the process, I’d like to say that there are only 5 chords necessary to play this song.

The ones I used were C, e, a, F, G7. The e a e a transition gets repeated a few times in the refrain and the chorus part also. Obviously you can doll it up all you like, but basically those 5 are all I used.”
