Song: The Post

Consternational Anthems

A fun song about the debauchery of a night out at a bar on the other side of the railroad tracks. My uncle Bruce wrote this song several decades ago, and I updated it with contemporary instrumentation and lyrics to enter it into an Indaba Music contest. It ended up getting selected for placement in their music catalog, and it seemed like a good fit for Consternational Anthems.

Check out Consternational Anthems, my 2017 album. All songs will be available for free download for a limited time. DM @rodzroom on Twitter if you’d like a thumb drive of stems for these 10 tracks.

Lyrics:


liquor started goin down
the beer was tastin good
the happy hour was young and restless
everyone knockin wood

gather around the table
salute and take a shot
order another double round
we’re drinking that rum so hot

because we took a little walk on down the railroad tracks
and now we know we might not be able to make it back
we’re at the post, we’re at the post
where they treat you so fine
if you just don’t get outta line
we’re at the post

gimme another paralyzer
don’t forget the pils
a zombie, a margarita man
you know they’ll never make you ill
they’re always round the table
can i help you sir
flunkies and junkies just givin em hell
cuz they wanted it shaken not stirred

because we took a little walk on down the railroad tracks
and now we know we probably won’t ever make it back
we’re at the post, we’re at the post
where they treat you so fine
if you just don’t get outta line
we’re at the post

there’s waitresses, barmaids, and bouncers, don’t forget the chef
they’ll serve you warm and kindly
it goes right to your head
tequila and black Russians
chasing them with ex
dropping your drawers and craving some more
man you ain’t doing your best

because we took a little walk on down the railroad tracks
and now we know we’re not gonna be able to make it back
where they treat you so fine
if you just don’t get outta line
we’re at the post
