Constantly assimilating into the culture of whatever Country we were in. That's where the ideas for the songs came from. Trouble was, the only time we had to jot down the rough drafts of the verses was while humpin' through that given Country's Alps on XC skiis......THAT is not an easy task.
LOL Kyo.......... Nope. That wasn't one of the songs. Although many did include an Ode to the "spirits", so to speak, among other things.
It's been awhile, but the reason I know this, is because...... one would be hard-pressed to find even one verse in any of the songs that could be posted on this site.
I saw two copies of this songbook. One while I was at Toelz and one seven or so years after I was out. They were rare. A friend of mine made a copy before he left Toelz. When I was living in the Chicago area my wife and I went to CO for a ski vacation. This buddy of mine was living in Vail. That was the second time I saw the songbook. Thought about making a copy back then.
A small bit of real life advice to anyone coming across this thread.......... You want to do anything possible to eliminate the phrase.......... "I SHOULD HAVE" from your vocabulary. That's in simple form. That is damn near a thread in itself.
