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

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.


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
