about

First, I recorded a handclap track. Then recorded tenor guitar and vocals in one-take. Added backing vocals, harmonica, washboard.

I found old 'almost in tune' harmonica in a bin of old cables that I haven't opened in a decade or so... I don't really play harmonica but I gave it a whirl.

I got a chance to use my tele-mic... which is a microphone made out of an old phone... which has a similar sound to an old fashion carbon microphone. I put it up for the one-take tracking in addition to my usual mics and then used it to record the harmonica track.

lyrics

The Gospel of Late Night TV - February 24, 2013

If you ain't got money
And you want a piece of the pie
If you want the remedy
Send me your last dime

CHORUS:
I wish I could believe
In the gospel, of late night TV
I'd be healthy, wealthy, sexy and saved
For a series of small payments
Plus shipping and handling

If you ain't got salvation
Just look into my eyes
I have all the answers
Send me your last dime

You ain't got abs like mine
If you ain't got time
Put down those chicken wings
Send me your last dime

Money can buy a lot of things
A fact I won't deny
Buy yourself a TV slot
And make the other suckers buy

ALTERNATE CHORUS:
Make them believe
In your gospel on late night TV
Say words like healthy, wealthy and saved
Throw in a some worthless junk
And add a few hidden fees
