I love how this song evolved and fell out. Radio friendly kinda thing.

Here ya' go...
And "Yep," the organ riff is a nod to Al Kooper.


COMES TUMBLING DOWN words & music: Bill Mallonee
published by BMI c 2014.

how it all fell out
how it played for keeps
revisionist history
well, it never weeps
crumbles to dust
and it falls to the ground
all that you built x3
comes tumbling down

now, nothing last forever
so the saying went
baby, let's provide them
with some new evidence
when the jury decides
and the verdict's pronounced
all that you built x3
comes tumbling down

"honey, we're all resplendent."
said some folk-singer that i knew
use to hang on his words
maybe, i still do
i wonder how he's doing
but he's nowhere to be found
all that you built x3
comes tumbling down


released July 31, 2014
