A couple of weeks ago I wrote this story: Ducks in a Row.
Last night it occurred to me that this would make a great song. So I wrote a song! It’s not the exact same story but it’s the same premise… and frankly its much more awesome! Please take a listen and let me know what you think!

That is a wonderful song…. Much easier to listen than to read – great job!
Thanks Clay! Yes, I’ll take listening to a song over reading any day! 🙂
Love this! You’re sooo good! Am listening to this while watching my daughter chase ducks at the Michigan cottage we’re visiting. So fun! Congrats!
Thank you for that nice comment! I really like this too. Is it okay to really like something you produce? Sure it is… 🙂 Pretty cool to be with actual ducks when you heard this!
Hey, just noticed you are in Michigan! Awesome! Hope you enjoy our beautiful state!!
The chorus is stuck in my head! I’m very impressed.
This reminds me of Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow. It’s that good. Even better.
OMG! Tom T Hall, haven’t heard that name in forever! We used to listen to that stuff over and over and over as kids. “When Sneaky Snake goes dancing….” Love it! Glad the chorus got stuck in your head, hopefully not for too long though! 🙂
“. . .well I don’t like ol’ Sneaky Snake. . . ” Golden memory!
Some Nashville artists recently remade the album, but I haven’t gotten around to checking it out yet.
I’m going back to work tomorrow after a brief break to catch my breath and reclaim my soul. I imagine myself quacking at a few people who could probably benefit from the moral of your story/song.
You’re welcome to share it…
I love this! I was singing along with the ducks by the end of the song. My kids would have loved this. Write some more and make a children’s album!
There’s probably a few stories on the site that could be adapted into music, huh? Thanks for your sweet comment!
FANTASTIC! Can’t wait to share this with my 5 year old nephew when he comes to visit. He will love it! Keep writing and playing. Good stuff.
Thanks! You keep playing too. You could learn this one: 5 easy chords!
I love this so much! It needs to be on a children’s album. Seriously. It reminds me of the book “Click Clack, Moo” which is a popular book right now and in reading curriculum for Kindergartners at many schools. I’m going to send this to my sister. She is a kindergarten teacher and singer. She will love it. I want to spread it around! And you should shop it around too.
Thanks Emily! Yes, please share with anyone that would find it fun. Wish I could get a better recording, but guess that would mean spending money at a studio. I have heard of Click Clack Moo, but don’t really know what it is. Seems like I’m already so far away from some of that stuff.
Most of us only have a single talent 😦
Mike, what I like to say is; I’m sort of good at a lot of things, but not really good at just ONE thing. Not sure which is the better place to be?!?
Nice song. Beautifully done.
Thanks A! You’ve been following along for some time. I subscribed to your site today!
Great song …. love happy songs … excellent job. I love ducks – such a pleasant creature. Yes, to ask in a pleasant way … pays off much better than screaming.
Thanks! Yes, nice voices are always a better choice then loud, angry voices.
well done steve. your yelling voice sounded eerily like dave.
Mr. P!! One of my favorite people! Thanks for stopping by. I’m sure I sound like brother Dave… its that whole genetics thing!
We LOVE it!
Thanks! I was hoping you all would get a kick out of it. 🙂
We have a fondness for yellow ducks… According to my post my kids rescued a few (and lost others)… But Kodiak before losing his vision completely loved little yellow ducks, geese and chicks… And this song has an awesome message!
This is so Awesome! I am so glad I found your blog a while back! Always leaves me wanting more…
Thank you Diana! I love comments like that! 🙂
