SKY IS BLUE TRUTH: Song Lyrics
The Pea Pickin’ Hearts have been hard at work on songs for our upcoming CD which will be available from Sounds of the Smokies. And, I find myself sifting through notes and doodles in the moleskin that travels with me everywhere I go. “Sky is Blue Truth” kept coming up time and time again…so clearly, it is a song waiting to get out.
The “Sky is Blue Truth” is any obvious truth like, well…the sky is blue. I am always amazed at how easily some folks are offended by the truth. I understand that hearing the ugly truth or the painful truth is hard, but why are some folks even offended by the “Sky is Blue Truth?”
Here are a few verse lyrics from “Sky is Blue Truth”–still in progress, of course:
Your mother is a lying witch
Your daddy wants to make a switch
Your sister drove into a ditch
Why does the truth make ME the snitch?
Any thoughts on truth-telling? Share them with me. Is the tradition of sugar-coating the truth just a Southern form of the euphemism. I can’t wait to hear from you. Email me.
