If you can tell a joke or relate a story to a friend, you can write a song. “Ole Baltimore,” tells the story of a person looking for a song they’d heard long ago… and finding it.

Hello Everyone. This is Crow Johnson Evans (or Auntie Crow) coming to you from CrowSpun.com with a story about a story song.
Have you ever wandered into a place and felt completely out of place? May it always work out as well as it does in this tune, “Ole Baltimore”.
I enjoy quirky or unexpected happy endings. “Ole Baltimore” is a song I wrote for another song. A friend of mine had penned a neat tune, so I imagined wandering into a bar and trying to find that song on the jukebox. I made the main character out to be completely out of place in that bar. Imagine an awkward socialite or hippy in a sawdust cowboy bar. In the end, it works out great with everyone singing, laughing, and waltzing along. . . to “Old Baltimore”.
I hope you do not feel out of place often. May you shine where ever you are.
This is Auntie Crow wishing you joy and so long until next time at CrowSpun.com.
