November Songs

I've been remiss in posting to YouTube (and here) a couple of songs I put up on Facebook...

The first, a cover of Steve Goodman's City of New Orleans (made famous by Arlo Guthrie), that I recorded on the eve of the election. Some of my trepidation regarding the results of the election come through in the vocal.

The second, a cover of Ray Davies' Thanksgiving Day, recorded for, well duh, Thanksgiving.
