North Idaho Woods Blues Songs—Frank Delaney, Songwriter
North Idaho Woods— This was a protest song I wrote back in the 1970’s about the growing commercialization of North Idaho, where I was working. There were several mysterious disappearances of people at the time, and strange events happening. Many cars had bumper stickers that said “Don’t Californicate North Idaho.”
Dr. Feelgood—One of the first blues I ever wrote. The Doctor is in ....
Ninth Chord Blues— This is as Jazzy as I'll ever get but I do like these chords.
Prison Blues—I’ve never been in prison, but I did spend my last year in the Navy on isolated duty on Adak, Alaska, and I know what it feels like to be coming home to civilization.
Rainy Day Woman— I love being inside with someone I love, listening to the rain.
Viet Nam Blues— I was in the Navy during the Viet Nam era and went to college on the GI bill. Over the years I have seen too many Vietnam Vets whose lives were ruined by their experiences, and their contributions have never been properly recognized.
Biscuits—My own “answer” song to the great Mississippi John Hurt’s song—”Coffee Blues”. Good biscuits and good coffee sure go great together.
Cocaine Blues—My own version of a great old song
Cowboy Dan—When I was a little boy growing up on the East Coast I idolized cowboys and cowboy movies; Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, and Outlaws !
Don't Pay the Ransom Honey - I've Escaped— This was a saying from the 70’s, and I wrote this song based on it.
Staying in a Small Town— This is a true story of a strange experience I had in Soap Lake, Wa. I found a great old traditional Country Music club, but the band was these very young kids with long hair and some of the crowd was all duded up and doing these strange line dances. But on the edge of the dance floor - two older ladies dressed in tshirts and jeans were doing the 1950’s bop together and it was great.
DB Cooper Blues— I lived in Seattle during high school and college just a few blocks from Seatac airport, where the DB Cooper event happened in 1971. I like to think he made it.
The Yuppie Song—A mostly true story about a party I attended once that was infestated with Yuppies, and other observations of mine about this sub-culture.
Gary Kasparov Blues— This song came to my while jogging one day, and I had read in the newspaper about how the Russian Chessmaster had beaten a huge IBM mainframe computer in a computerized chess game. Sort of a modern day John Henry Man-versus-Machine saga.
57 Chevy— One day a friend of mine and I were talking about life in general, and he told me that he had found and restored his Father’s 57 Chevy and gave it back to him. This was such a beautiful story I had to write this song .
Up on Ruby Ridge— I have vacationed in North Idaho for many years, and I happened upon the Randy Weaver incident as it was happening in August 1992. I have home video I recorded, and every time I watch it I’m reminded of the fury of the local people against the invasion of Federal agents, troops, planes and snipers that occurred. This was a true American tragedy which should have never happened.
