about

I wrote this song years ago but still haven't put it on a bonafide album. I hope to do that this winter!

Recorded live October 22, 2021 at Missoula's favorite dance hall, the Union Club Bar and Grill.

lyrics

BROKEN ROAD
words and music by Britt Arnesen

My baby’s gone
He left a note in the kitchen
It was wrong
And said I wouldn’t even miss him
And then went on
To say I never learned to listen

He went out west
To a suburb outside Nampa
Took a job
To try to put himself through classes
Says come the fall
We’re gonna meet up on the Salmon

Now that he’s away
I’m gonna clean out all the cabinets
I’ll ask the neighbors
To help me tear down the fences
We’d start today
If I could come back to my senses

You don’t have to grieve
Every thing that could have been
Every dream
That you threw away in the innocence
Of younger days
Down a broken road to happiness
