about

Remember that part where you realize your dad is cooler than you thought because he one day pulls you aside to sit in the garage and listen to his carefully organized collection of soul music on tapes?
That's when work on this record started.
Since that Saturday, I have strolled through life accidentally singing harmony with strangers' renditions of Sam Cooke, Wilson Pickett and the Supremes. Growing up in the Southwest, I learned old fashioned country music, bluegrass, hymns and more hymns, folk songs lullabies...then one day, last November, as I stepped off into autumnal wandering I realized it was time to make a thing. A record, some art, a whatever I could. Friends and more friends and their friends jumped in and our rag tag collection of scrappy kids and crusty gentlemen made...this.

Recorded live, with no overdubs outside of a clap here or there, and a little extra singing, at the Money Pit (ie my old apartment) over winter 2012/2013. Lots of amazing folks played a part. Come to a show and play with us?

Oh! And! It's free for you because Baby Money loves your face. Just sayin...Please download and share and download some more...please?

nothin makes me bend a knee
i weep i weep to see

runnin' runnin' must i beg
my head my heart my legs
my bones will break before the day
i hope i plead i pray

Track Name: Tears of Blood
tears of blood

she was dressed in a dress of white
but that woman's soul was as dark as night
she was dressed in a vail of lace
tears of blood dried on her face

oh me, oh my
tears of blood that girl would cry

early in the morning when the sun gets fed
that girl goes walking
walking dead

there she goes with her high heels on
walking midnight
walking dawn

oh me, oh my
tears of blood that girl would cry

she wears diamonds, bright cold clean
she wears diamonds like a queen
there she goes with her high heeled shoes
that woman's broken down
black and blue

oh me, oh my
tears of blood that girl would cry
Track Name: Gotta Get Back
gotta get back

gotta get back to santa fe
southwestern colorado
way up high, way down low
gypsies and tobacco

i never had any answers
honey weren't no gambler, he's just a rambler i know
country girl, mountain wife, so they told me i'm getting older

heart and soul
lovin' underwater
preacher cried for his daughter

from here to someday
nothin' ends
what's there, just more to begin

sante fe
southwestern colorado
gypsies and tobacco
Track Name: Hold My Hand
nothin' matters, nothin' ever did
nothin' matters, nothin' ever did
sun's gone dark, the moon's on fire
hold my hand

don't try those foolish ways with me
do not try those foolish ways with me
don't try those foolish ways, hold my hand

where you goin' baby, where you been
where you join' baby, where you been
stay awhile, sway awhile
hold my hand

been so lonesome darlin', been so long
been so lonesome darlin', been so long
stay awhile, sway awhile
for this last dance

rain keeps fallin' from the bright blue sky
rain keeps fallin' down for you and i
pavement's drowned, pavement's lost, lost from sight

please, oh, please, let me know you're near
please, oh, please, let me know you're near
pavement's drowned, pavement's lost, lost from sight

please keep and hold and honor me
please keep and hold and honor me
hold, hold me close for this last dance

nothin' matters when the world is gone
nothin' matters when the world is gone
see you when it is new again
hold my hand
Track Name: I Heart You Wilson Pickett
i heart you wilson pickett

i cannot say what the night may promise
i cannot rest until i'm week to the bone
i don't know why nighttime makes me restless
but my tears,(my tears) my tears (my tears) my tears dry on their own (x2)

no one can break a heart already broken
no one can tell the future once it has pat
nothing seems real to someone who aint pretending
my tears cast shadows(shadows), shadows (shadows) but shadows never last (x2)

i don't know how my feet keep moving
i cannot say what my voice may do
and my tears pour over you
yes my tears(my tears) my tears(my tears) my tears pour over you
i don't know what might happen
when the darkness comes
but i know i won't be alone
when the dealings done

sometimes my thoughts turn cold and dreary
i know i don't got no place to run
i just think how i love you so dearly
for you my tears, my tears, my tears pour everyone.
