I smell trouble

One of my 'wordless' backing tracks is some kind of slow blues. It only exists because I fell in love with a particular guitar sound. Most of my backing tracks actually originate in my love for a sound or a riff. Anyway, this one needed a few 'bluesy' lines. Here they are:


I smell trouble
trouble down the road
like some dud shell
that's going to explode

I see it in your eyes
that your mind's wandering
I can read in your heart
that your love is fading

I feel it in your touch
that you are backing out
it's not hard to guess
what's gonna come about

I smell trouble
trouble down the road
like some dud shell
that's going to explode


Here is the link to the recording.
