about

If the recent overruling of Utah's gay marriage ban isn't occasion for a folk song, I don't know what is. If you want to watch a dark silhouette of me playing this song, you can do that here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXn8bHUUQ6k

lyrics

On the solstice in December
I heard that lawman say
In this valley of the prophets
Let's be gay

There's a blizzard that's finally over
But there's a flurry still in my heart
Like the snow so cold
I don't know where to start

Mother, I have a lover
And his name is Marcus Grey
We're going hop-skipping down
To those courthouse steps today

Mt. Olympus is a scoop of ice cream
And the lake is a crème brûlée
And I'm a cup of cocoa
I'm going to melt it all away
Yes I believe I'd melt Antarctica today

We built a snowman out in the meadow
And we called him Parson Brown
We said, "Can you do the job
While you're in town?"

Gov'nor, I have a lover
Wears a ring of stones and gold
We're gonna be waltzing
Onto those courthouse steps of old

So happy Christmas, holy midnight
These are tidings of great joy
For we have all been good
Little girls and boys
Let's sing songs and play with our new toys

On the solstice in December
I heard that lawman say
Among the sego lilies
Let's be gay
And maybe let's get hitched on Christmas day

Judge Shelby, I have a lover
And his name is Marcus Grey
We're gonna be dancing
Up to those courthouse steps today
