A Country Gadget Song

This is a tribute to Txskatemom, who’s Garmin died. She wrote a lovely haiku about it on the Penguin Athletes list, but she needs to put it up on her blog. In the meantime, here’s my rendition.

Since ma Garmin diiied, Oh!
Since ma Garmin diiiiied.
Ah don’ know how far Ah’ve gowne
Since ma Garmin died!

We’d been everywhere together,
in the heat and wet, cold weather
Now my training log is fried
Since ma Garmin died.

Altogether now!
Since ma Garmin diiied, Oh!
Since ma Garmin diiiiied.
Ah don’ know how far Ah’ve gowne
Since ma Gaarrrrmiiiin diiiiiiied!

(Banjo Solo)

Repeat Chorus

Can you hear the banjo and the mandolin in the Kentucky blue-grass background? It needs to be sung by a tenor with a nasal twang.

It’s amazing how that Ginger Mint tea can really wake me up in the morning.

  1. YOU ARE A NUT!

    i love it!

  2. Oh, but the sad song is so much better than the Haiku — I am content to be the muse and spur you to such creativity!
