Jim and Joe were hanging high on the strings of their harmonica and guitar. They had been asked to join a band—right here in Castle House. The old house had done its duty during the castle/moat era. Now it was ready for a new atmosphere.
The band was ready to make it happen—change the Castle to a Country Roundup Rally. They are excited about their new love song called, “Drag On.” It is a ballad of a time when hearts are lonely and time seems heavy. Couples especially grab the tissues when they hear the last two lines:
but we are going to hold on (Okay, guys, hit and hold that sound)**
Let the lonely nights come on (harmonica hold the blue note)
Lonely hours are hard to hang on, (don’t wear that silly grin)
the days are blue as hours drag on. (don’t need a British Bulldog look either)
(guitar holds long twanging sound during the “drag on” phrase.)
An amazing thing happened just at the time the guitar twanged out the B chord for the words “drag on.” A monstrous dragon appeared. Just as the monster started to chomp its teeth into the Castle House, it changed its notion causing it to withdraw and start its cumbersome journey back to the ocean.
Lesson learned: Words are powerful—East, West, North, or South;
Be careful of the words that come out of your mouth!
