I Think My Christmas Tree is Haunted

Those of you who know me pretty well know that occasionally the muse descends and I have been known to write a song or two. Usually the songs are about something deep and meaningful, like hunting Santa’s reindeer, or what happens when you eat bad Mexican food. I don’t know what it is about Christmas, but the season just brings out my irreverent side.

This Christmas is no different. On Thanksgiving day of this year I started messing around with some lyrics. Soon verses gave way to choruses, choruses to solos… ahhh… I’m making this bigger than it is.

I’m blessed to have some talented friends. I wrote the song “My Christmas Tree is Haunted,” figured out a good key on my guitar, and sent the 12-bar blues number over to my best friend since childhood, John Judd. John’s the real musician. He put all of the music together and we realized that a song this good needed someone who can sing. So I called my father-in-law, Robert Peckman, and he got to work on the vocals. John pieced everything together and our new band, The Ghostvillage Memorial Choir was born. Don’t be looking for us to gig anywhere anytime soon, but do watch for more songs in the future.

Without further ado, you can download/listen to the MP3 of the song by clicking here (the file is 10 MB).

Rock this one ’round your Christmas tree at home.

  11. Hi Jeff,
    I love the song and the lyrics are great! I would love to sing it, pehaps not as blues as your father-in-law, who is great by the way. You need to do more of this in the future, you have a talent.
