Thread Name: Ways not to introduce your song
Subject: RE: Ways not to introduce your song
I often introduce a song with some context, but it would be a total waste to recount the story (if there is one) before doing the song.

I like to introduce "Tying Knots in the Devil's Tail" with the suggestion that it is a morality story--if you find yourself in a crisis between the forces of good and evil, don't bother calling on a priest or a rabbi. Just get a couple of drunk cowboys, and you'll be fine.
