About the Song
From the upcoming CD "Best of Breed Romance," this song incorporates clawhammer banjo, slide, and percussion in a tongue-in-cheek story of an escape from the zombie apocalypse. Or maybe it's a metaphor. Ah heck, let's just say it's a fun tune about zombies. The video for this song is at youtu.be/F1bmCI31CBU.

About Michael
Michael Gaither was raised on the central California coast and takes the “write what you know” idea to heart, crafting songs that showcase both the nostalgia of small-town life and the foibles of modern technology. Always with plenty of humor in the mix. He turned to songwriting after a background in journalism and a narrow brush with standup comedy. (He sold jokes to Jay Leno. A long time ago. Back when Jay Leno was still funny.)

Michael has released four CDs of original material, all of which have received international airplay.

Offstage, Michael produces/hosts the “Songs and Stories” podcast, which features stories behind his songs and interviews with other independent songwriters.

lyrics

Lyrics
Some blamed a monkey / Said it was disease
Some called it the rapture / It spread and they had a feast

It's not like movies / They move really fast
They're always hungry / If I don't leave - I won't last

I'm moving to Boise / I hear it's zombie free
I'm moving to Boise / No zombies gonna get me

A blow to the head / That's how they go down
Man, that gets old / I gotta lose this town

I got food and water / And paper map
I got bit yesterday / I think it’s just a scratch

I'm moving to Boise / I hear it's zombie free
I'm moving to Boise / No zombies gonna get me

I'm moving to Boise / Where it's safe I'm told
I'm moving to Boise / ‘cause they don't like the cold
