Music Monday: Mercedes Benz

 Last month, my dear husband and I went to see Reina del Cid in concert here in Atlanta. One of the last songs she sang was a cover of Janis Joplin's "Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz", but with an extra verse asking the Lord for a new guitar.

This got me thinking about what that song would be if Janis wrote it today. These days, housing is hard to afford. So I wrote a new verse to this classic.

Lord won't you buy me a new mobile home
My old one is broken. It just will not roam
A new double wide one, with accents in chrome
So Lord won't you buy me a new mobile home.

You can listen to me singing it on SoundCloud.
