I'm trying to find a video which was posted here long ago by my forum friend 1847. The song was called "quiet as a mouse" and sounded like key to the highway. It began with the lines "I've got the key to my Honda Element, she threw them out my back door, she said i don't want you Bobby Cooper, don't come around here anymore"
Words to that effect, I may have them inexact. The story continues, with him going to his friends house and begging a bed on the couch, for which he promises to cause no trouble and "this time" be as quiet as a mouse
I always wished Bob would share the rest of the song and I enjoyed the way he played on this time, incorporating plenty of the range in a very nice traditional/classic sounding way. If like to listen to it again but I've had no joy with my searches.
Unfortunately "1847" is not a good search term on this forum. I thought I'd have a good chance of finding the post because I'm pretty sure the thread title was simply "quiet as a mouse", but that brings no results.
I haven't heard from Bob in a long time. I have tried email but no joy there either.
The Google search link I posted here didn't work for some reason. Maybe it was too long?
The direct link to the thread page I found on Google and posted here as an active link would not work, either! The Forum software will not accept it as an active link, but it works this way if copied into a new tab or window:
The backing chords don't sound like "Key to the Highway" to me, more like "Sitting on Top of the World". The backing chords don't seem to go to the KttH change to the V in the first part, but stay on the I chord.
The lyrics and melody Bob plays on harp seem to be a take on "Key to the Highway".
I think that this thread is one of those lost along with others in a forum migration. It is lucky that it could still be found via Google.
