Words & Music by Mark Gostnell

Mark Gostnell is one of the most creative people I know. Among other things too numerous to mention, he is a master singer/songwriter and a highly engaging artist. He is responsible for the cover art for Wide Open Night, as well as the lyrics and music to Galileo's Trio. He told me he wrote this as the rural response to "Neon," a song from my first album about bar room courtship.

Meterorites and falling stars
Falling angels and honky tonk bars
Milky Way spilled over the velvet sky

Flying saucers prowling for love
That’s why they come down from up above
Like silver teardrops falling from god’s eye

Waltz with me, put your cheek next to mine
I don’t want any beer, I never drink wine
But if you want to come around to my side of town
I may never ask you again
We’ll have a sip of Irish whiskey and a toke of mary jane

Planets, moons, and galaxies
Out as far as the eye can see
Comets glide elliptically with such grace
The ballroom floor is strewn with stars
We’ll dance by Jupiter then by mars
In the morning I’ll kiss your pretty face

Waltz with me, please take my hand, Galileo’s trio is the name of the band
If you want to come around to my side of town
I’ll gladly show you the way,
We’ll have a sip of Irish whiskey and a toke of Mary Jane.
