New Tag

Help

Q: What are tags?
A: Tags are a way to add consistent notes to songs.

Q: When should I use tags?
A: Tags should be used for "notes" that can apply to multiple songs or performances. A good tag would be "clawhammer", to apply to all songs that Billy plays on his banjo. A bad tag would be "Streaker ran across stage" - since this has only happened once (thank goodness).

Q: Where should I add a tag?
A: A tag that should apply to everytime a song is played, like "solo, acappella" for "And am I Born to Die" should be added on the songs page. This will automatically add the tag every time that song is added to a setlist.

A tag that only applies to certain performances of a song, like "pay Jarrod Walker's fine" lyric change that happens in some versions of "Little Maggie" should be added to that particular version of the song on each setlist.

Q: How do I add a tag?
A: Click the "Manage tags" button either from the songs page or the song editing option on the edit setlist page. Click on a tag from the "Available" tags to add it to the song. Click on a tag from under the song title to remove it from the song. Click the "New Tag" button if the tag you want to add is not under the Available tags list.

First Time Played:

Early in the fall back deep in the woods
The first hint of frost is upon you
About a mile from the field stone wall
It's not hard to get lost if you want to

Too far from the city to see the white lights
I move in the shadows under cover of night
Too far from the highway to have a flat tire
So I stare at the ashes and fire

Well John Saint Paul is a well-known man
Of wealth in a skyscraper palace
He likes his old Cadillac prepped for long drives
I don't like how he looks at my Alice
I work his garage with a wrench and my glove
Bring the stench of his gasoline home to my lovе
She swears once again shе has all she desires
As I stare in the ashes and fire

One day late last week when I got to work
The boss needs his Caddy all steady
I remembered his eyes all over my wife
As I carefully got my tools ready

What a terrible shame, should he ever break down
With me on his trail, and so far from town
If his brakes were to fail, if he blew out a tire
And I stared in the ashes and fire

Well John Saint Paul is a well-known man
Of wealth in a skyscraper palace
He likes his old Cadillac prepped for long drives
I don't like how he looks at my Alice
I don't like how he looks at my Alice
