“A Sailor Being Tired” is nine songs, five of them original, in new settings--country, pop rock, and blues.

“Rustlers” is my story of a family set upon by thieves. “Wheel of Misfortune” is my song about dark circumstances. “The Dying Cowboy” comes from Bradley Kincaid’s “Favorite Mountain Ballads and Old-Time Songs” (pub. 1928), as does “Frankie.”

“The Cherry Tree” is my song of love and betrayal. “A Sailor Being Tired” is a lyric I’ve taken from the Appalachian ballad singer Dillard Chandler. “Memories” is my song of lovers and music.

“When You’ve Got a Good Friend” is my rock-blues adaptation of a song by bluesman Robert Johnson.

Dean Rathje: vocals, guitars, banjo, mandolin, piano, bass.
