Ballad of a Bad Girl (4:05) (FCC Warning: “Bast.rd” at 1:27). Medium tempo, but lively. Roots sound, banjo, guitar, drums, electric standup bass, vocal, foreboding. Anne Lindley, co-writer, recalls that she was thinking about the idea about the fallen woman. When a woman is perceived as a bad woman, fallen woman, an immoral woman, there is often a lot of blame that she takes on for becoming that way. This is the ONLY song where I play the banjo.
