Pipes (Excerpt)

Smokin’ pipes!

Tim wrote the lyrics. The lyrics play with my Pop’s cherry tobacco pipe and the pipe organ.

This song features my father Mahlon playing the pipe organ – on my rock record! And, of course, a squawking lead guitar. Pipes! Alright!

Pipes, alright – Pipes, all night

He strikes a match – sets afire
Cherry tobacco – in a briar well
Strikes a chord – through the air
In a crimson Cathedral – putting all in a spell

With rising emotion – all fears drop
With harmonic motion, He pulls out all the stops
Pipes are singing – pipes are meaning
To say to you – that it’s alright
