Rewritten Song: I’m bound (version 2)

I'm bound (version 2)

This new version of this old song from late-December 2011 is a little bit more honest, I think. Instead of putting it all on someone else, like the first version does, this new one sort of takes some ownership.

Sort of.

The narrator is still kind of a jerk because he’s unwilling to change. Still saying, “Well, this is how I am, and you’re going to have to accept me like that, cause I’m not going to try and be different.”

It’s a good thing I don’t write songs about myself. It’s a good thing. Yep. Sure is. This song is definitely not about me.

Also, I stole the melody from Johnny Cash’s tune “Let the Train Blow the Whistle.” It just happened to pop into my head while I was re-writing this one and it worked out pretty well. That’s an easy trick if you get stuck at songwriting. Just steal what someone else already did. NO ONE WILL KNOW.
