The short story behind the song.... Man Down

Before I began writing songs I spent a lot of time writing short stories. I believe the short story form helped tremendously in my ability to craft a well thought out song. Steven King along with most of the writers that I've read, on the craft of writing have said don't tell your readers show them. I wrote a tune a couple of weeks ago called Man Down. A couple of people asked me where it came from, what its really about. Today I decided to expand on the song and write a short story about it.


Here it is....
