The Blanket Stiff

The Blanket Stiff

A tender, melancholy waltz inspired some old folk lyrics. This piece can be purchased as a set with the other two pieces in the Ghost Town Waltzes series, 'Dogtown' and 'The Old Canal'.


He built the road,

With others of his class he built the road,

Now oe'r it, many a weary mile, he packs his load,

Chasing a job, spurred on by hunger's goad,

He walks and walks and walks and walks

And wonders why in Hell he built the road.
