about

I try and write a goodbye song at the end of all the FAWMs and 50/90s... this is it. I like to think of FAWM as a very intense relationship... I love every minute of FAWM (and the FAWMers), but night after night of getting 5 hours of sleep would eventually kill me, so by the end, it is a bittersweet goodbye. ha.

I have a cheap mandolin that I bought in Costa Rica many years ago... and I finally changed the strings right before FAWM and two of them broke and hit me in the eye... So I replaced the homemade aluminum tailpiece with a real one and it works much better now.

Mandolin and vocals recorded in one-take. Added harmonica. Added banjo. Added extra vocal track. Harmonica and backing vocals recorded through my tele-mic, a phone converted into a microphone.

lyrics

Guess we both know that it's time
Guess we both know that it's time
Guess we both know that it's time
Kiss me once before you go

Time we both be movin' on
Time we both be movin' on
Time we both be movin' on
Kiss me once before you go

On the first of March you'll be gone
On the first of March you'll be gone
On the first of March you'll be gone
Kiss me once before you go

Gone before the morning light
Gone before the morning light
Gone before the morning light
Kiss me once before you go

Don't kiss me twice, I might make you stay
Don't kiss me twice, I might make you stay
Don't kiss me twice, I might make you stay
Kiss me once before you go

Kiss me once before you go
Kiss me once before you go
Kiss me once before you go
Kiss me once before you go
