The Brown Bagin Blues: Based On A True Story


THE BROWN BAGIN BLUESBased on a true storyA day in the life of a hobo named Davey.Come take a walk along side an old long in the toothed man who chooses to live the life of a nomad. Davey is a very complicated man. He holds many skeletons in his closet that he will take with him to his grave.Getting Davey to converse with you about stupid nonsensical meaningless topics is easy as he is one who can never stop rambling. It is actually very difficult to get him to shut his yap. But getting through to the core of the man and knowing his most personal and dark secrets is where he draws the line. Davey does not allow anyone to know what is truly going on in his mind. He constantly uses dark humor to try and mask the pain that must be going on inside of his soul.What made Davey become a bum?Everyone who observes him has their own take as to how and why Davey became what he now, is which is a homeless street transient.Most people feel as if it is all his fault and he deserves to be in the gutter with the rats and worms. He is trash to them and does not even deserve to be breathing the same air. There are few though who still treat Davey as a human being and are kind and respectful towards him as they see him going about through the streets on a daily basis drunk, stinky, and filthy dirty. Without self respect that he clearly shows by the way he holds his head down low toward the ground as he waddles around like a lame duck with no purpose in life through the streets.This book is based on a true story. This book has been fictionalized and all the names have been changed to protect the anonymity of the characters true identities. Having said that most of the stories depicted in this book actually truly happened in some way shape or form. Some of the stories may seem a bit far fetched but this is a crazy world that we reside in and these crazy incidents are happening all over the world even as we speak. A brief look into the back story of how the title "THE BROWN BAGIN BLUES" came about.It is funny how in life sometimes things just seem to eventually work out. If it was meant to be I believe that It will eventually happen as long as you have patients and let the natural progression of life run its frustratingly grueling course. "THE BROWN BAGIN BLUES" was actually a song that I wrote when I was probably about 18 - 23 years old. It is just a simple flip floppy acoustic blues song in a typical 1 - 4 - 5 chord progression with my own unique Heavy Metal twist on the side!To this day I have never even played the entire song for anyone other than myself. I have occasionally doodled around with some of the riffs in front of friends for a few seconds but that is the extent of it. It was at least a decade later when I met Davey that I was struck by lightning! (figuratively speaking) I finally had a face to put on this silhouette that I had stuck in the back of my head for years!I had wrote that song purely on a whim. I am in no way shape or form a Blues Musician. At that time in my life I used to love creating heavy sounding songs using acoustic guitars and playing Blues riffs. It was my own little style that many people around me even Musicians themselves didn't quite understand. So I had always just kept them for myself and my own enjoyment when I am alone in my room with the lights out laying on my back flip flopping around on my acousticMany of the songs I put in "THE LAST BASTION OF HOPE Resurrect the Heathens" and especially "FORK IN THE ROAD the Culmination of Angst" I made up 2 versions of those songs. One would be the original which Id write acoustically and the second would be the Metal version.I hope you enjoy this short story because I had a great time writing it. Godspeed DeSoto
