Someday You’ll Dance

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

These are the lyrics to track 2 on the album. Listen to it now if you like.

Someday you’ll dance on a different moon with us
and you won’t even need any feet
the Lion and the Ox and the golden-eyed Eagle
and the hurricanes will come to take you home
and nobody really said it he was just a mean old man
but all he really wanted was to live forever
he said I wish I had more money there must be something I can do
somebody I can pay to get me out of this mess
and the king is a liar and everybody knows it
but he has the keys to the liquor store
and he will decide who gets less or more
so when you see him you better smile and say hello
and he found his queen in the guinness book of records
she has the biggest breasts in the world
and she proudly shows them for everyone to see
she says when I eat I lay them on the table
and nobody really said it he was just a mean old man
but all he really wanted was to live forever
someday you’ll dance on a different moon with us
and you won’t even need any feet
the Lion and the Ox and the golden-eyed Eagle
and the hurricanes will come to take you home
and the hurricanes will come to take you home.

The band

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Today, I’d like to introduce the band and the dog.

Here is John Timmins and John Wojewoda on my roof after a rehearsal. John Timmins has put a lot of time into this project. I approached him originally when I was doing the album just to play a bit of banjo but he has become a partner in all aspects of this show from playing banjo, guitar, singing back-ups, spoons, harmonica, to participating in endless discussions about what we are going to do with this music.  I am also very lucky to have John Wojewoda interested in this  – he adds on his dobro guitar and with his vocals a vibe and a feel that is exactly what I want on this music.  Eric Brown, not seen here, was the engineer of this album and when you come to a live show you will see Eric on bass and vocals.

And this is Abby…

The Dog

John Timmins on the roof. You should never leave a wicker chair outside all winter.
