Faded Southern Bellhop - First Draft

This is my first stab at recording the second-to-the-last song to be recorded for the new album. The song tells the story of a former hair-metal musician or drag queen (and really what's the difference) whose days of glory have passed him by. He spends his days as a bellhop agonizing over his failures and his fading fame. It's a really upbeat song for all that, though. I'll probably redo the vocals, as I was having a bit of an allergy flareup when I recorded these, but all in all I'm happy with the direction it's going.

Thanks! Lyrically this is one of my favorites that I've written. Don't know why it took me so long to record it.
